BOBBI KRISTINA TAKES UP MOTHER’S LEGACY BY GETTING HIGH FOLLOWING FUNERAL
February 20 2012
Newark, NJ – The offspring of two drug addicts is a person most certainly at risk. Not only is there a serious risk of damage In utero, the type of household and life that such a person is subject to is a risky one at best, the type of environment that could very well lead the child down the same path as his or her parents, something that appears to be very much the case for Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.
No doubt reeling from her mother’s sudden death, Bobbi Kristina has already fought some very public battles, landing in the hospital twice for undisclosed reasons. Like most children who lose a parent, the grief Brown is feeling is no doubt immense and difficult to deal with, and so she has apparently decided to deal with it in the best way she knows, by getting high which makes everything seem better.
Getting high is apparently exactly what Bobbi Kristina did following her Mother’s funeral on Saturday, vanishing as the family went to a local restaurant and then showing up hours later reportedly feeling much better. The family as denied that anything illicit happened, just as they have denied that the 18-year old has a drug problem of her own, an attitude that didn’t serve her mother all that well and likely won’t do much for the younger Brown either.
“Cissy and others won’t admit out loud that Bobbi Kristina has a drug problem. But they know it and have been trying to keep her straight even before Whitney passed. But losing your mother and the life you’re accustomed to all in one day is enough to send anybody off the deep end,” a family insider, presumably one of the poorest or sleaziest next to the family, told the Daily Beast.
It’s not clear what Bobbi Kristina’s drug of choice is but it is likely that she had no problem finding whatever it was in New Jersey.
Father Bobby Brown was off touring with New Edition and was likely not the source of any drugs she may have used. It’s not clear if he would have shared his stash or connections with his daughter in any case.
“Obviously this is a very traumatic time for everyone close to Houston, but for someone like Bobby Kristina who just lost her principle parent, the responsible one, it has to be especially tough. Of course getting high will help that in the short term but is really not viable long-term solution,” said Scrape TV Psychology analyst Dr. Sarah Welp. “Ideally the best plan would be to get her off drugs, not put her in a situation where she will do more of them but that is easier said than done. It’s also especially hard to get done when you keep denying its happening.”
It’s not clear if the denials from the family are simply for the public, or like it was with Houston, all over the place.
“It would be sad if Bobbi Kristina ended up like her mother and considering her fragile state, as well as the rough situation with the family as a whole, is entirely possible. That would be a real tragedy,” continued Welp. “I mean it’s unlikely that she will end up exactly the same, half-in half-out of bathtub in Hollywood the night before the Grammy’s. If it happens exactly like that it would be very strange indeed, but stranger things have happened like people still wanting to see New Edition, and so it is possible I suppose. Hopefully that doesn’t happen.”
Bobbi Kristina, it is believed, was way too high to be sad during Houston’s burial on Sunday.
