Bobbi Kristina Wanted in Rehab

February 20, 2012  |  

Any daughter would have a tough time dealing with the death of their mother, but Bobbi Kristina’s rumored drug past has Whitney Houston’s family especially concerned about how her daughter will handle her passing going forward.

Bobbi was already hospitalized twice in the immediate days following news of Whitney’s death, and after her mother’s funeral Saturday, she went missing for nearly 24 hours, sending her family into a panic. It seems Bobbi slipped away unnoticed while family and friends gathered at a local eatery in Newark, NJ, Saturday afternoon, but when phone calls to Bobbi’s cell phone went unanswered as it was time to transport Whitney’s body to Fairview Cemetery  for burial Sunday morning, her family became extremely worried.

“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.”

The spokesperson said Bobbi Kristina isn’t on drugs and is simply grieving, but that story conflicts with that of a close family friend who said the family is worried Whitney’s death could cause Bobbi to spiral out of control.

“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,” the family friend said. “But losing your mother and the life you’re accustomed to all in one day is enough to send anybody off the deep end.”

Bobbi Kristina was said to have used drugs the night after her mother’s death to ease the pain, and a family associate said Bobby Brown being forced or choosing to leave the homegoing ceremony only made things worse for his daughter, who was reportedly found getting high in a hotel several hours later.

“That hurt Bobbi Kristina, and you know it hurt Whitney,” said the source. “Bobbi Kristina saw her father keep it moving and leave them behind. Whitney had accepted it to some extent, but Bobbi K. is still so angry and was angry before her mom died.”

While some family members wanted to send Bobbi to rehab immediately, others thought it was important for her to be present at Whitney’s burial. With that now completed, Bobbi is expected to be flown to a drug rehab facility in California to help her cope with her addiction and her mother’s death.

“It’s a horrible situation for everybody,” said a close family friend. “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.”

Do you think Bobbi Kristina needs to be placed in rehab or is she just grieving?

  • I agree with MerrieGirl – if she’s really addicted, then rehab is really the only thing she should be doing. Some people can get clean on their own, but not many. Addiction is truly a disease, and professional help is necessary for most people to get off drugs and develop coping strategies for life.

  • Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  • I’d also like to express that most individuals that find themselves without having health insurance are usually students, self-employed and those that are without a job. More than half on the uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not really feel they are looking for health insurance because they are young in addition to healthy. Their particular income is usually spent on housing, food, as well as entertainment. Most people that do work either entire or part time are not presented insurance by way of their jobs so they head out without owing to the rising cost of health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the tips you discuss through this blog.

    If Bobbi Kristina really is in crisis, the family should get her the help she needs. Blaming her father is just creating an excuse for her to continue her behavior.

  • gmarie

    The Houston family needs to step out of denial (the way they were with her mother) and get this young woman the help she needs.

  • Love_Sexy

    I truly pray for her and hope she pull through the rough time she is experiencing……May God be with you always Bobbi Kristina.

    My heart goes out to Bobby Kris.  I think its a shame what has transpired with the public disrepect of her father.  She has lost her mother, and now she probably feels that she is loosing her father.  I am appalled at the behavior of Whitney’s family towards her father.  We have to be careful not to idolize our children and when they get to the age of accountability there is nothing that a parent can do but advise our children.  As parents we have to leave them in the hands of the Lord.  Children are a gift from God they are not ours to control the Bible clearly defines their purpose and what a Godly parent is suppose to do.  Ms. Sissy you must learn to forgive for the sake of you granddaughter and come together with Mr. Bobby Brown for the good of Bobby Kris.  This child needs her family more than ever, her voice needs to be HEARD!

    She needs to go away from public view for a while; who knows how long it will take her to get to a new normal, her normal is changed now. Being so young, she can recover and rebound from this tragedy in her life. Once her mind is clear, body, soul and spirit has accepted her mother’s death and that life goes on, I think she needs to either go to college or decide if she wants an entertainment career and get busy building a life for herself. RIP Whitney, God be with Bobbi Kristina, Cissy, Bobby Brown and all the family and loving friends. 

  • Amija

    Addiction def runs in the family so I hope they get her help before it’s too late.

    I think Bobby K needs grief counseling and I would say if she is on drugs, then, yes,  she should go to a rehab.  she needs to be still and surround herself around family and God.

    Bobby Kris, I would offer these words to you:

    1.  Love the Father above, for he will love you back.
    2. Love and get to know your earthly father, for he will love and support you back as well.
    3. Get to know your own heart and mind. Follow them with God’s guidance, they will never lead you wrong.
    4. Avoid those who will spit poison at you, no matter who they are are.
    5. Learn to take control of your own money, do no allow others to spend it for you!
    6. And in the words of your Mother, “Learn to love yourself, that is the greatest love of all!” 

  • Faith

     She’s grieving and she’s doing it the best way that she know how to.  It’s very hard to loose a love one and especially your Mother, whom as been there for you from the very beginning.  It wont be easy for her considering the fact that she is still so young.  She’s probably hearing all kinds of rumors about her Mother death, which I’m sure is only making the situation worst.  Also she seeing and hearing the disputes that are going on with her family and he father, she may feel pressured to soon choose between them, this is still to much for her to handle.  But there’s no doubt in my mind that prayers for her and her family won’t change this situation around, God is is still in control and he always has the last say.  Right now I would encourage her to just trust in God and him only, through FAITH WE have the power and authority to do anything.  Just for a moment in our life, we’ll have “light afflictions”, but that’s nothing compared to the glory that is going to be revealed in us!

    I say simply, I love you Bobbi Kristina. I pray God put his strong arms of love and protection around you and walk near to you in your pain. Hold your head up beautiful angel and know that no matter how great the pain, we can survive it! -a friend of Bethy

  • Bobbi has her daddy left and siblings. Plus other family. She is not alone. 🙂

  • Mia

    They can kidnap her, strap her in a rehab chair and it will not work. She has to want to change and break the cycle of addiction herself. I”m praying for her.

  • If the family couldn’t get through to Whitney, they probably won’t make much headway with Bobby Kris.

  • Merriegirl

    If she she truly has an addiction then yes she should go to rehab. Also, It would be better if she went on her own & was not forced by her family. I would be curious to know how many of these “concerned” family members were supporting her before her mother passed. & I also wonder if her mother’s family is allowing her father to assist with this process, he should be included, regardless of their sentiments toward him. 

    • FromUR2UB

      I was also thinking that.  If they’d made room for her father at the funeral and allowed him to comfort her, the disappearance act may not have happened.  His presence might have had a stabilizing affect on her, because I imagine that she feels very alone now.
