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.

Fine timing, TMZ, Bobbi Christina is going to know the plan before the funeral, via anyone of her 'friends' by text. If she can't be located, makes one wonder if she's hanging out with her dear old dad, dulling her loss.

My God don't you people have any humanity. The girl is still in shock, she's devastated by her mother's death. The funeral hasnt taken place and this article is about this young girl's own issues. ffs leave her alone.

I don't see why the family is messing with her now when she is trying to grieve. Maybe she knows something about Whitney's death that they don't want other people to hear, maybe that someone went in the bathroom with Whitney and gave her a shot that killed her. How could she die from just Xanax and beer if that is what she was doing all the time anyway? You need to take alot of that to kill you, maybe over a bottle. She would also have tolerance to it if she was used to doing that often.


She didn't drown, even though she was dead in the bathtub, so maybe whoever killed her wanted it to look like she just passed out and drowned in the bathtub. There is alot of money here and if this Bobbi Kristina is declared incmpetant, the family will have control of it. Maybe that is why they tried to keep the girl's father away from her and even from the funeral.


People are greedy no matter how much they say that they love someone. I think it is very shady the way they are making the daughter out to be crazy all of a sudden when she is supposed to be upset now anyway due to her mother's death.

Reports about Bobbi Kristina getting in trouble have been around for a few years......I don't think Whitney her mother taking her to clubs and parties helped matters. I hope Bobbi Kristina listens to her family and gets some help (IF it's all true) Her mothers passing will do one of two things....#1 send her into a deeper depression and farther into abuse OR #2 scare the hell out of her enough to see the light and get herself together and have the full and happy life her mother wasn't able to have.........hopefully #2.

For Bobbi Kristina's sake, I hope Whitney Houston structured her estate in manner in which Bobbi Kristina won't be able to take full control of her inheritance until she's much older. If she's been battling "ADDICTION ISSUES" for at least four years, she's certainly not in any shape to make well informed decisions regarding financial matters nor does she have enough experience in this realm. She's going to have to make this money last for the rest of her life especially since she's doesn't seem to have any prospects to follow in her mother's footsteps. I'm inclined to believe Whitney's family has her "BEST INTERESTS" at heart. People will hang around as long as she's "FINANCING THE PARTY" and when the money is gone, they'll be "NOWHERE" around to help her "PICK UP THE PIECES"!!!
