There is new speculation that Whitney Houston’s 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, might be suffering from substance abuse problems just like her famous mother did. Rumors are circulating that the young teen left her family after her mother’s funeral to get high.
According to Jezebel, Bobbi Kristina – who had suffered from two emotional breakdowns since Whitney’s death last weekend – made an unannounced exit during a family gathering at a Newark-area restaurant after her mother’s memorial service, which led family members in a tizzy trying to locate her. Sources tell the site that Bobbi snuck away in order to get high on her own.
Unfortunately though, this isn’t the first time it’s been reported that Bobbi Kristina might be like her mother when it comes to the bad stuff – a family “friend” also tells the site that Whitney and Bobby Brown’s daughter entered rehab for a drug problem earlier in the year and that the entire family, including Whitney Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, is worried that Bobbi is dangerously following in her mother’s footsteps.
A source tells the site: “It’s a horrible situation for everybody. They tried to save Whitney, and it didn’t work. Now with Bobbi Kristina, they fear the same thing is happening again and they won’t be able to stop it either.”
The source adds: “Bobbi Kristina is all Ms. Cissy has left of Whitney. She’s so tired, but she’s ready to fight again to save her grandbaby.”
In addition, a family spokesperson had no comment when asked about Bobbi Kristina’s alleged rehab stay.
Let’s hope this rumor is just that – a rumor. We’d hate to see Bobbi Kristina take the same dark path her mother did in life and hope that there are enough supportive people around her that are able to better save her than they did Whitney.
