Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina could be drinking herself to death, family members say.
The 19-year-old’s boozing has actually gotten worse since she finished taping her reality show and as she struggles with questions over her “incestuous” engagement, sources say.
TMZ said they fear Whitney’s old enablers could be getting to her daughter, too.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s drinking has reportedly worsened since shooting wrapped for her new reality show.
Bobbi Kristina’s drinking figures prominently in her new Lifetime show, “The Houstons: On Our Own,” about the famous singer’s family’s attempt to cope with her absence.
In one episode tease, Bobbi Kristina slurs as she downs a glass full of wine.
“It tastes like apple juice,” she says.
Behavior like this has reportedly led Whitney’s former manager and sister-in-law Pat Houston to suggest taking the teen to treatment in California, where Whitney was also treated.
But sources have said they do not want this to happen, as Whitney’s counselor ultimately could not save her.
Meanwhile, both fans and family have struggled to come to terms with Bobbi Kristina’s recent engagement to Nick Gordon, whom Whitney informally adopted when he was 12 years old.
“These people are saying that it’s incest,” Bobbi Kristina says on the first episode of “On Our Own,” adding that their relationship is actually “none of that.”
“Nobody knows anything about our relationship, and they never will because it was just meant for us to understand. And that’s it. I don’t think my family can handle that,” she says.
In that episode, the teen explains that her engagement ring belonged to Whitney, much to the chagrin of aunt Pat Houston, who says she was “speechless” to hear this news.
“Ring?” she says on the episode. “First of all, if you’re going to be engaged you must go out and purchase a ring, not a ring that was given to her by her mom.”
Whitney’s older brother Gary Houston also questions the relationship on the episode.
“How do you go from brother to being a boyfriend? It’s a crazy concept.”
For his part, fiancé Gordon has maintained that the relationship is definitely “not incest.”
