When one train wreck dies, we immediately start looking for another — and what better place to look than Whitney Houston‘s own family. Within days of Whitney Houston’s death, funeral and burial everyone’s already excited about the prospect that her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, has a drug and alcohol problem.
Immediately after Whitney died, Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital and since then it’s been one headline after another declaring her to be “in trouble.” According to Radar Online, Bobbi did drugs after her mother’s funeral on Saturday and showed up drunk to the burial on Sunday. A source tells them:
“Bobbi Kristina didn’t want to be at the burial, and she looked wasted,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “Krissy’s eyes were glassy, and she seemed to be very disconnected from the service. Krissy hasn’t been eating or sleeping and just can’t stand to be around her family right now. Krissy’s group of friends appear to be much older, and don’t seem to have her best interests at heart.” [tagbox tag="Bobbi Kristina Brown"]
Pray tell, when in the history of anonymous sources has this ever helped someone get better? Considering Bobbi Kristina’s parents suffered from drug and alcohol abuse and considering she’s been rumored to have been in trouble for awhile, I don’t find it surprising that she showed up drunk to her mother’s funeral. This probably isn’t the first time she’s addressed extreme grief by blacking out.
What does surprise me is how quickly everyone forgets how Whitney died. She died of drug abuse. Shockingly none of the media’s many reports that she abused drugs and alcohol over the years seemed to get through to her. The only thing that might have worked was the support of her family and friends.
That’s what Bobbi Kristina needs now. She does not need her family or “close” family friends speaking to the press or revealing anything about her problems. She’s 18, she just lost her mother and she needs help. Not headlines.
