Whitney Houston’s only child was allegedly found in a hotel room getting high, after her mother was laid to rest. This is the time where she needs to be monitored closely during these unbearable and trying days.
The Daily Beast cites two sources who claim Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, was allegedly found using drugs in a hotel room hours after the star-studded funeral — and family members want the child of two admitted drug abusers to go immediately into rehab.
The report says the family was told about the alleged drug use after they frantically searched for the daughter of Houston and Bobby Brown. Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized twice for emotional breakdowns after her mom’s sudden death.
Bobbi Kristina Brown arrives at Whigham Funeral Home for a private viewing for her mother Whitney Houston Friday.
“Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell,” said one source, a longtime family friend. “It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. Ms. Cissy [Houston, Whitney’s mother] was beside herself.”
A family spokesman denied Bobbi Kristina is using drugs, according to The Daily Beast, and chalked up the disappearance to stress surrounding her mother’s untimely death last week.
“There was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina’s whereabouts last night for a short time, but she’s OK,” a Houston family spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “She needed some time alone. She is going through a very hard time as you can expect.”
Bobbi Kristina entered rehab for drug use last year, a family associate told the news organization.
“It’s a horrible situation for everybody,” a close family friend told The Daily Beast. “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. 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.”
Houston, 48, who had long battled drug and alcohol abuse, was found dead in her Los Angeles hotel room last Saturday. Her body was laid to rest at a private ceremony in New Jersey today.
The cause of death has not yet been determined.
