Whitney Houston’s Daughter Feared Suicidal Following Her Mother’s Death
It isn’t just fans and the public who are mourning the death of superstar and icon Whitney Houston. Her 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was hospitalized twice this weekend following her mother’s death and the young woman’s family fears that she is suicidal.
After Whitney was pronounced dead on Saturday afternoon at the Beverly Hills Hilton, Bobbi rushed to the scene but was prevented from seeing her mother’s body. She and her father and Whitney’s Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, both reportedly got into a shouting match with police after being turned away. Whitney Houston’s cousin, Dionne Warwick was also denied access.
CBS News reports that Bobbi herself was then taken to the hospital via an ambulance that evening from the same hotel where her mother died. She was treated for anxiety and later discharged. But Whitney’s daughter was back in the hospital again yesterday morning, as TMZ reports her to beÂ “hysterical, exhausted and inconsolable.”
Bobbi’s family is also reportedly very concerned for her well-being and fears that she may be on the verge if taking her own life. TMZ claims that Bobbi is in need of serious help and that the family is considering rehab for the young lady. [tagbox tag=”Whitney Houston”]
Yesterday afternoon, the Houston family released a statement regarding Whitney’s death. Just Jared reports:
â€œWe are devastated by theÂ loss of our belovedÂ Whitney.Â This is an unimaginable tragedy and we will miss her terribly. We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from her fans and friends. â€” The Houston Family.â€
Bobby Brown released his own statement asking not only for his own privacy, but that of his struggling daughter:
â€œI am deeply saddened at the passing of my ex-wife,Â Whitney Houston. At this time, we ask for privacy, especially for my daughter,Â Bobbi Kristina. I appreciate all of the condolences that have been directed towards my family and I at this most difficult time.â€
Bobbi Kristina is no doubt being hounded by theÂ paparazziÂ and press while both she and her family try to make sense out of this awful tragedy. The very young woman’s every move will now come under scrutiny as she moves between the shadows of her mother’s legacy in time to come. But at this moment, Bobbi is a young girl simplyÂ grievingÂ the loss of her mother.
