Sadly, just hours after her mother Whitney Houston was laid to rest in an emotionally charged tribute in New Jersey, Bobbi Kristina, reportedly disappeared for a while to reportedly ease the pain of her loss by getting high.
Rumors have been swirling that the family has plans to force Bobbi Kristina into rehab as soon as her mother was laid to rest. Whitney even tried to force Bobbi Kristina into rehab last year, but it didn’t work.
While she hasn’t actually entered a rehabilitation facility, Bobbi K reportedly has a paid “counselor” that has traveled alongside her for years to aid in her treatment, however her mother’s death has caused the teen to once again spiral out of control.
Another situation that affected her greatly was the way Houston’s family treated her father, Bobby Brown, at her mother’s funeral.
A source who attended the funeral revealed to the Daily Beast:
Cissy finally asked him to come in and stay, but Bobby wouldn’t. Cissy only did that to help Bobbi Kristina, because Cissy cannot stand Bobby. She just didn’t want a big drama with him on that day of all days.
That hurt Bobbi Kristina, and you know it hurt Whitney. 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.
My personal sources who attended the funeral told me that Houston’s funeral service had “color coded” sections and that the church “was almost like a club with V.I.P. sections specifically designated.”
I was also told that it was the Houston family’s wishes to separate Bobby Brown’s family:
They didn’t want them all seated together. That was the issue.
They wanted Bobby in once section and his kids and brother & sister in another, so that they wouldn’t all be together… you know… in case anything popped off.
The entire situation hurt really disturbed Bobbi K.
“That hurt Bobbi Kristina, and you know it hurt Whitney,” said the source.
When Houston’s homegoing ceremony was completed, her body was transported to the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J., to prepare for burial Sunday morning.
It was during that time that 18 year old Bobbi K, who suffered at least two emotional breakdowns last week after she heard of after her mother’s untimely death, disappeared and her family was in full panic mode trying to find her.
“Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell,” said one source, a longtime family friend.
“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.”
“There was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina’s whereabouts last night for a short time, but she’s OK,” said a Houston family spokesperson.
“She needed some time alone.” The spokesperson says Bobbi Kristina isn’t on drugs and is just emotionally fragile at this time. “She is going through a very hard time as you can expect.”
“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.”
A Houston spokesperson has denied the incident occurred but many close to the family say they expect Bobbi Kristina to be flown to a California rehab facility within the next few weeks.
Let’s all keep Bobbi Kristina in our prayers.
