Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, seems to be taking her mother’s death the hardest after she was picked up from Beverly Hilton by Ambulance for medical check up which took about four hours.
Beverly Hills Police told ABC News that an ambulance was called Monday morning to the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Bobbi Kristina was staying with her mother, in response to a concern about her health. The 19-year-old was said to be suffering from anxiety. She was later released.
According to a press release earlier sent to ABC News, Bobbi Kristina was transported from the hotel at 10:26 a.m. local time to Cedars-Sinai Hospital and was “awake and alert” at the time.
“It’s going to be very hard for her,” Ian Drew, senior editor of Us Weekly had told ABCNews.com.
In the hours after her mother was discovered not breathing in the bathtub of a Beverly Hilton Hotel room, Bobbi Kristina was reportedly turned away from seeing her.
Earlier, TMZ reported that Bobbi Kristina got into a shouting match with police officers outside her mother’s fourth floor hotel room when they informed her no one was allowed in. TMZ said she “screamed, cursed and demanded to see her mother” before ultimately leaving.
Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick was also turned away by officers, according to TMZ.
But Bobbi Kristina was more than just close to her mother; she became her caretaker as the six-time Grammy winner struggled with addiction.
“Bobbi Kristina basically grew up her mother’s caretaker, similar to Frances Bean,” Drew said, comparing her to the daughter of singers Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain.
“In a way she was the adult in relationship,” Drew said.
Brown also battled addiction and together, he and Houston, “enabled” one another, Drew said.
“People don’t know that while Bobby was a stone cold alcoholic, he didn’t ruin Whitney,” a former associate of Houston’s told ABCNews.com.
In a 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Houston called Brown “her drug,” adding that she “didn’t do anything without him.”
She also shed light on their actual substance abuse issues: Marijuana laced with cocaine was their substance of choice, and they “would have ounces” of cocaine available at all times.
“You put [cocaine] in your marijuana, you lace it, you smoke it,” she told Winfrey.
Houston finally divorced Brown, 43, in 2007 and entered rehab last spring.
Afterward, she seemed to be making up for lost time with Bobbi Kristina, who, like her mother, was an aspiring singer and actress — apparently with her own impressive voice.
Mother and daughter had begun working together on songs in the recording studio, according to Us Weekly.
“She idolized Whitney,” a source told the magazine, and “wanted to be just like her mother.”
One way she was unlike her mother: She didn’t do drugs.
After The National Enquirer published photographs last May that appeared to show the 18-year-old snorting cocaine, her father Bobby Brown told ABC News Now, “I don’t know anything about that. My daughter, she doesn’t, she doesn’t do that.”
Bobbi Kristina also defended herself on Twitter a day after the photos came out, saying she was “set up” by a money-hungry ex-boyfriend because of “a horrible relationship that went sour.”
“It’s really not what it looks like,” she wrote.
“Drugs? Not my girl”, Bobby Brown on Bobbi
For Bobby Brown, a picture doesn’t always speak a thousand words.
In an interview with ABC News Now’s “What’s the Buzz” today, the infamous R&B singer denied that Bobbi Kristina, his daughter with Whitney Houston, has ever used drugs. This month, The National Enquirer published photographs that appear to show the 18-year-old snorting cocaine.
“I don’t know anything about that,” he said when asked about the photos. “My daughter, she doesn’t, she doesn’t do that.”
Bobbi Kristina defended herself on Twitter a day after the photos came out, saying she was “set up” by a money-hungry ex-boyfriend because of “a horrible relationship that went sour.” “It’s really not what it looks like,” she wrote.
Brown also revealed that “there will be a New Edition reunion sometime in the near future.” He shot to fame in the 1980s as part of the R&B band; despite the fact that he was voted out of the group in 1986, Brown said they’re eager to perform together again.
