Daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found last week. She was face down in a bath tub at her home in Roswell, Georgia, just the way her late mother was found three years ago.
Authorities say she may have ended up in the bath tub as a result of foul play, after hospital authorities reported injuries found on her body as she is medically induced coma in hospital.
Reports claim a police probe into the incident is focused on her partner. Nick Gordon and Bobbi are believed to have had a history of domestic violence. Now sources have claimed Gordon was jealous of Bobbi Kristina’s fame; and couldn’t understand why Whitney’s daughter was offered more money than him for a reality TV deal, according to reports.
The only daughter, only biological child, of Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, remains comatose at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta over a week after being found face down in the bath tub at her home – in a scene that echoed the untimely death of her mother in 2012.
It has now been claimed that the couple’s fights were almost always triggered by ‘Nick’s jealousy over Bobbi Kristina’s fame!
While Bobbi Kristina and Gordon’s violent relationship was well known among their friends, it was just fueled by jealousy.
Gordon, Whitney Houston’s adopted child, felt he was also Whitney’s child and so could not understand why people focused more on Bobbi.
Bobbi Kristina and Gordon were brought up as brother and sister after Houston took Gordon in when he was 12. But following her death, the duo announced they were in a relationship. Whitney Houston raised him as her own son at her home outside Atlanta but never legally adopted him.
Bobbi Kristina’s parents, Whitney and Bobby Brown had a famously turbulent marriage.
Now sources claim he is jealous of his partner and cited a recent incident in which the couple were trying to get their own reality TV show, but Gordon wasn’t offered the same deal as Bobbi Kristina so they turned it down.
Gordon has been summoned to appear in court today to answer charges of reckless driving. A warrant for his immediate arrest will be issued if he does not turn up at Fulton county State court in Atlanta at 9am (yesterday).
Gordon, 25 was caught driving at over twice the speed limit along a suburban road in November, 2012.
Suspicious injuries found on Bobbi made hospital staff to suspect foul play and reports have suggested Gordon will also be the focus of a police investigation into how Bobbi Kristina ended up in hospital.
Singing legend Whitney was found dead in the bath tub of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11, 2012. Authorities found a dozen prescription drug bottles in Whitney’s suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors, but concluded that she accidentally drowned.
Bobbi Kristina was found in eerily similar circumstances last Saturday.
While police said they had found drugs in the house, it is not clear how Bobbi came to lose consciousness.
Her cousin Jerod Brown wrote on instagram on Thursday that, ‘doctors don’t see any hope for change; but her father has clammed claims the family are preparing to say goodbye. Bobby was found unconscious by her partner Gordon and her friend Max Lomas at her home.
Lomas discovered Bobbi Kristina after he went looking for her when a cable man knocked at the door. When she did not respond, he went in and found her, his attorney said. It was revealed on Friday that she could have been submerged for up to 15 minutes before she was discovered. She was rushed to hospital and her family has remained tight-tipped about her condition.
Her father Bobby Brown spoke out last week to correct reports that his daughter had married Gordon.
Last January the couple had announced they were married and Bobbi Kristina posted photos of their wedding rings on social media.
But on Tuesday, a lawyer representing Bobbi’s father said: “We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina.
“To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.
Relations between Gordon and other family members have been rocky and he remains subject to a protective order barring him from being within 200 feet of Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Patricia Houston.
Bobbi’s parents’ 15-year marriage was dogged by rumours of drug-fueled domestic violence.
Leading Interview Daphne Barak, one of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s closest confidences, on the tortured last days of ‘a little girl lost.’
Today, Bobbi Kristina Brown lies unresponsive, hooked up to life support equipment in Atlanta hospital. Nothing yet is certain about this young woman’s fate, but, like most others, I fear the very worst.
And having known her for more than a year, I have been worried about a tragedy of just this kind.
Bobbi Kristina was delightful, but she was also a young lady who carried a heavy load. For the past 15 months, I have been talking to her about narrating a film concentrating on her late mother, Whitney Houston.
As we got to know each other, she confided more and more about her turbulent life and many insecurities.
Since Whitney died three years ago, Bobbi Kristina has felt increasingly lost. Still little more than a child today, she was only 18 at the time and emotionally shattered.
She turned to drugs and alcohol – I saw the evidence with my own eyes and, in the process, became alienated from family members who might have supported her.
Found unconscious in a bath tub last Saturday, with evidence of drugs nearly, her own fate seems heart breakingly similarly to that of her mother, who was found dead in the bath of her Los Angeles hotel suit.
I first contacted Bobbi Kristina after seeing private footage of Whitney’s wedding to singer Bobby Brown. The elegance and the glamour of the occasion persuaded me to tell the story of this other Whitney, with her daughter as the narrator. Bobbi Kristina was delighted to be approached.
We started to speak regularly – the last time was just a few weeks ago-and eventually she came to stay. What she had to tell me was sad. How, for example, she feared some relatives wanted to cash in on the inheritance left for her by her mother. How she witnessed Whitney’s drug abuse. How, in January last year, she married long-time boy friend, Nick Gordon, despite recent assertions to the contrary by her father, Bobby. And how she longed to be a mother and a wife.
I came to know a girl badly in need of a family. More than anything else, it was the loss of her mother that struck home and there were times when I found myself almost in that role.
She told me: ‘I miss her like hell. When mom passed, I was lost she had taught me everything up until I was 18. How to be a woman. Now I am working on that alone. For me, she wasn’t Whitney Houston, the star. She was my mom.
Bobbi Kristina lived a rather naïve, childlike existence. She seemed to believe that she was as famous as her mother, telling me, ‘she taught me how to sing gospel and a-cappella because it would make my voice stronger.’ But the talent, or course, was no means the same.
Missing her mother, she began to distance herself from her father, as I found when she and Nick came to visit me in California last year.
I encouraged her to see Bobby. But she was a troubled young woman. She seemed angry with his wife, Alicia, calling her a ‘bitch’ and claiming she ‘has put him on weird stuff like yoga.
Alicia was not the only target of her anger, at that time she was under the wing of her mother’s half-brother, Gary, and his wife, Pat. But when Bobbi Kristina returned home to Atlanta, I received another frantic phone call. She said: ‘I have nothing to do with my Aunt Pat now. Can we fly to you? Can you fly us out to be with you?
An everyday thing such as booking a flight wasn’t something Bobbi had ever had to do. As her family face the dreadful decision of whether to switch off her life support, one conversation leaves me feeling particularly uneasy.
Last March she said that as she had turned 21, she had started to get money from her mother’s estate. Then she blurted out that she left some family members were trying to portray her as unstable so that they could handle the money.
Who knows if the claim is true, but certainly the fight over the money began just hours after Bobbi was found unconscious. While her father rushed out a statement insisting Bobbi was not married – the union would mean Nick was her nearest relative and so would inherit – Bobbi repeatedly told me that they were. Stina, as Whitney affectionately called her daughter, told me: ‘We went in front of a judge because we wanted it done.’
Just last summer, in a desperate bid to construct a family of her own, she confided that she was hoping for a baby. She also said she was planning a religious ceremony or ‘the most special wedding’ as she put in. ‘on Nick’s birthday in May. He is everything to me,’ she said.
It has often been claimed that Bobbi Kristina and Nick were brought up as half brother and sister, and as such the relationship is inappropriate. Both Bobbi and Nick referred to Whitney as ‘our mother.’
But Nick’s family told me it was untrue that Whitney brought him to live with the family when he was 12, as is said. Instead he lived with his mother Maxine until he was 16, before moving in with his grand-parents, who insisted he either studied or worked. His response was to move in with Whitney and Bobbi Kristina.
Drug abuse is the other shadow darkening the tragedy. Bobbi Kristina admitted that living with Whitney could be traumatic. She and Nick saw her passing out from drugs – sometimes for days on end. at times, they were terrified she would die.
Bobbi Kristina herself took prescription drugs. It was all too clear when she and Nick came to visit. She complained they had ‘flu,’ Nick in particular. ‘We are very sick. We need a doctor.’ Bobbi Kristina insisted. When! Said my Partner would drive them, she replied, ‘No, Nick will go. I am too famous to go.’
After visiting the doctor, Nick tried chemist after chemist. Bobbi Kristina stayed with us, chatting happily. She looked healthy.
When he surfaced with the pills he gave her some – and they ran off to their hotel. We phoned and phone, but they didn’t pick up. Then they called us – three days later.
My partner later found a prescription made out to Nick in a jeep. It was for Oxycodone, a highly addictive and powerful drug used to relieve severe cancer pain.
I wasn’t sure what to do in the end, I told Nick’s grad mother. Although Bobbi and Nick denied it, she knew better, saying she didn’t want to see them until they were clean.
Bobbi and Nick both insisted they weren’t taking anything. Nick called me, pleading: ‘You know it’s not true, Daphne. Say it’s not true; But there could be no doubt about it.
To me, Bobbi Kristina is sweet, intelligent and compassionate. But she is a little girl lost without the mother she adored – and probably copied. I pray that she recovers.
