Bobbi Kristina

Family Wants Rehab ASAP

2/18/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Houston family wants Bobbi Kristina to enter a live-in rehab facility ASAP.
Whitney Houston
's family wants Bobbi Kristina to enter a live-in rehab facility ASAP -- but sources tell TMZ, they're holding off on telling her until after Whitney's funeral today.

According to sources connected with the family, Bobbi has struggled with substance abuse issues for the last three or four years -- and the family wants her to seek out professional help at a 60-day live-in treatment facility before her problems get worse.

We're told the family is aware Whitney fell off the wagon in the weeks leading to her death -- and they don't want the same fate to befall her daughter.

But they're not putting pressure on her to enter rehab right away -- they want to give her time to grieve during and immediately after her mother's funeral today.

Attempts to reach Bobbi directly were unsuccessful. So far, it's unclear if Bobbi plans to heed her family's advice.

It is not a surprise that we have been subjected to a week of all outlets sanctifying Whitney Houston. She once had an amazing talent. She once had an amazing career. For the past 15 years, she has been a staggering, blligerent drug addict whose gifts have been destroyed. Along the way, she set the path for her daughter who is known to have had substance abuse problems since she was 14 years old. This is Houston's legacy. Whether or not her family chooses to, or is able to, help her daughter should be a private matter. I would just like the glorifying of a wasted life to stop.

OK... so f*ckwitted Harvey 'n staff try to reach Bobbi for comment about her family - WHICH CHOOSE TO KEEP IT SECRET - in effort to let her grieve for a little time before ambushing her in attempt to save herself, and her parents legacy.. to ask her what she thinks about them pulling this up and coming SECRET intervention.

Just checkin'...

Key word: Fcukwits/-ed.

Consistent, anyway, gotta give 'em that.

I wondered at the time when they took Bobbi to the hospital from the BHH .. TWICE, in the same day... if maybe the second time was for attempted OD.

I honestly don't think she'll ever stay straight IF she even kicks it for a minute. Like someone else said on here..."it's in her DNA" and it's been her environment from the cradle, let alone the GLAMORIZING it because of her mother's star status. I really see no other outcome then her going the exact same way as her mother, even minus the success let alone mega success of a music career. Pretty much a done deal.

Bless their hearts for trying, tho. Ugh.

Poor girl has a lot of stuff to deal with. Rehab is a great idea but whether she'll go for it or not is another question. I hope so.

Correction:

**Attempt to save her from herself, and her parents legacy.

Eh, nevermind. I'm with "I would just like the glorifying of a wasted life to stop."

This is only the second of the onslaught from ALL outlets online that I've read of this mess. Watched a couple of do***entaries about WH, with past clips of DS, and OW, that was enough.

Done with WH/Bobbi and surrounding whatever about either of them, stories, from here on out. Good luck, and movin' on...

Peace out.

BK is 18. By LAW she is an adult. She can make her own decisions but the family can always try to hold whatever she stands to inherit from her mothers work over her head.
Seems like everyone wants a piece of her now. Never can tell who has the right intentions where money is concerned.
I feel sorry for her seems like she is headed for rough roads ahead with all these characters involved.

This is a great idea. She was seen doing cocaine when she was 15 and then she went nuts denying it.

Some of her friends said on CNN that Whitney was doing shots with her 18 y/o daughter. And for the love of God dont' give her opiates and pills to deal with depression. She needs to get clean and grieve.

They know this for 3 to 4 years and did nothing. Crissy is a piece of work. Who was she living with when this started her Mother. Why diss Bobby Brown at the funeral with all of her sept family. He is still sober and maybe if she was with her Father she would be sober. THIS IS SOME BULL****. HAY CRISSY YOU DID DRUGS ALSO WHY BLAME BOBBY BROWN SHE GOT IT FROM YOU HER MOTHER AND AUNT.

Rest in peace," how much this says,Be free of no more to weep.For your faithful O Lord,Life is changed,not taken away.The golden prize that have won. your colors wave upon the breeze,With sheild of honor,lance of truth, you overcome with such as these.The hearts of those who loved you best.All the days of my life; and Ishall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.God will walk with you if you walk with him.

on what we know about bobbi and her mother. they had a tight bond between eachother they seemd as they were best friends.whitneys death was hard on alot of people,her daughter mostly.Bobby Brown in my oppion it to blame for her deat.he blew thru him money and when he ahd notheing left her turned to whitney and got her hoocked on all them drugs.Whitney was on of a kind,she was a insperation to alot of people.Whitney can now finally rest in peace and.whitneys sprit and music can live on in our hearts..it a terrible thing to see such wonderful people with great tallent die.and there life ends.bobbi brown is to have fingerd pointed to him.he did this to her and he is to blame..we all love whitney.and we all will miss her.im hopeing that her daughter bobbi will check her self in to a rehad and get her life together because i kno tha is what fans,family members,and even her mother whiteny her slef would want her to get her life on track..we love you whitney R.I.P<3

Why blame TMZ, this story is all over the tabloids. Blame the family, they blabbed to every Tom, ****, and Harry.

By the way, Whitney Houston was a used up old addict, a has-been, but death was a great career move. Just like it was for the other has-beens the likes of Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Amy Winehouse.
