I really hope this isn’t true. Sources close to the Houston family told The Daily Beast Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, disappeared for several hours after her mother’s funeral. When she was found, the sources say she was doing drugs.
18-year-old Bobbi Kris disappeared during the repast where the family had gathered to fellowship after Whitney’s funeral.
“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.”
“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.” The spokesperson says Bobbi Kristina isn’t on drugs and is just emotionally fragile at this time. “She is going through a very hard time as you can expect.”
The Houston Family is worried that Bobbi Kris will follow down the same path her mother & father once traveled. They’re also concerned for her health after she was hospitalized twice after learning about her mother’s death.
“Cissy and others won’t admit out loud that Bobbi Kristina has a drug problem,” said the family friend. “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.”
Several hours after the funeral, Bobbi Kristina was found at a hotel “getting high,” according to one source who was with the family when they received the news. A second source was told of the event from a member of the family. (The Houston spokesperson denied the incident occurred.) Some family members wanted to whisk the aspiring singer to rehab last night, while others fought for her to stay to see her mother buried this morning.
My heart goes out to Bobbi Kris. It’s hard enough losing your mother but to be dealing with drug addiction on top of that? I just hope she doesn’t lose control.
