Shortly after the funeral, Bobbi Kris went to dinner with the Houston family in Newark, NJ but soon slipped away saying saying she needed some time alone.
But went Bobbi was gone for several hours, family got very concerned (as she’d already had two breakdowns).
“Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell,” said one source. “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.”
The main point of tension is that Bobbi Kris may have a serious drug problem herself.
“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.”
The two sources confirmed that Bobbi Kristina was found at a hotel “getting high,” after the funeral and now some family members want to send her to rehab immediately.
“It’s a horrible situation for everybody,” says the 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.”
Despite the two sources, however, a Houston family spokesperson would not confirm the story saying,
“There was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina’s whereabouts last night for a short time, but she’s OK. She needed some time alone. She is going through a very hard time as you can expect.”
If she does indeed need help, I hope Bobbi Kris gets what she needs. So sad.
In other Whitney news, Whitney’s body was laid to rest with a private burial in Westfield, New Jersey at Fairview Cemetery yesterday. She is buried next to her father, John Russell Houston, Jr.
