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.

BK HAS HER OWN ADDICTIONS VIA HER ENVIRONMENT GROWING UP WITH WHITNEY AND BOBBY. ATLANTA WASNT DOING BK OR WHITNEY ANY FAVORS. ATL IS A PARTY TOWN, THE NEW "BLACK" HOLLYWOOD. BK HAS BEEN SEEN PARTYING, SMOKING, DRINKING, DOING ILLEGAL DRUGS FOR QUITE SOME TIME WITH HER SO-CALLED FRIENDS. SHE HAD A FALLING OUT WITH HER EX-BF AND HIS NEW GF LAST YR AND THEY SPREAD THE INFO TO ENQUIRER OF HER DOING DRUGS AND COKE PICS. THEY THREATENED TO EXPOSE BK AND HER DRINKING, PARTYING, ETC. THAT WAS ABOUT THE TIME WHITNEY AND BK DID REHAB AND BK WAS STAYING IN MALIBU AROUND MAY-JUNE 2011. BK EVEN POSTED PICS OF HERSELF IN MALIBU STAYING AT A HOUSE NEAR THE BEACH. BK'S BROTHER (RATHER WHITNEY'S GODSON - NICHOLAS GORDON) WAS EVEN WITH HER DURING THOSE WEEKS. BK ALSO POSTED A PIC OF HERSELF AND MONTANA FISHBURNE (WHO WAS FINISHING REHAB HERSELF AT THE TIME) WITH WHITNEY'S HAIRSTYLIST TIFFANIE DIXON IN THE SUV. PATRICIA HOUSTON (WHITNEY'S SIS-IN-LAW) AND CO-MGR NEVER DENIED THE PICS OF BK IN THE ENQUIRER WHEN ASKED BY FANS. BK WAS ALWAYS IN DENIAL AND LAMBASTED HER MOM'S FANS ON TWITTER WHENEVER THEY QUESTIONED BK OR ABOUT WHITNEY'S HEALTH AND ADDICTIONS. FANS ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT THE HELL WHITNEY WAS DOING IN ATL WHEN SHE WASNT WORKING. SHE BECAME A RECLUSE FOR 2-3 MOS AT A TIME AND NO ONE WOULD SEE HER IN OR OUT OF HER ATL TOWNHOME. THERE WAS RARELY EVER ANY PICS OF HER ANYWHERE AND FANS ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT'S HAPPENED TO HER. NO DOUBT IT BECAME OBVIOUS BK WAS PARTYING WITH HER FRIENDS IN ATL AND PROBABLY WITH WHITNEY AS WELL. NICK GORDON LIVED WITH BK AND WHITNEY. HE MUST KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON. FROM WHAT I KNOW NICK GORDON ALSO HAD A TROUBLED PAST HIMSELF. HIS FACEBOOK LISTS HIS REAL DAD, A PSYCHIATRIST IN ATLANTA REGION, BROTHERS/RELATIVES IN FLORIDA REGION, AND BK AS HIS "SISTER" BUT HE NEVER POSTS HIS REAL MOM OR WHITNEY UNDER "FAMILY". THE KID MUST BE 22-23 NOW. HE WORKED AS A P/T MALE MODEL AT ONE TIME. NOT SURE WHERE HE IS NOW OR WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM SINCE THE WEEK OF WHITNEY'S DEATH. THIS KID KNOWS AND SEEN A LOT THOUGH I UNDERSTAND IS A PARTIER HIMSELF AND SMOKES BLUNTS AND TWEETS ABOUT IT ON HIS TWITTER. SMH. HIS TWITTER @NDGORDON AND FACEBOOK @NGORDON1. GET ON HIM TMZ... THIS DUDE KNOWS A LOT OF SH*T WHAT WAS GOING IN THE WHITNEY HOUSTON HOUSEHOLD IF HE WASNT A PROBLEM HIMSELF... GET ON IT TMZ! #TRUTH!!

Well it's awesome of TMZ to blab the family's plan to the world before they were ready to tell the girl. Try to have an ounce of class. You're "coverage" of WH is ad nauseum at this point.

Sorry, but there's no hope for her. She learned everything she knows at her mother's knee. Whitney was the most destructive, toxic mother a child could have. Now she has Whitney's family and her father who are all going to be sucking off her like leeches, trying to control her every move.

Does any one know if she even finished the 12 grade? Being a party girl and doing drugs is a poor education. The writings on the wall she is a spoiled brat that has everything handed to her. Lets see how she makes it in the big world, maybe she will learn what a real job is ???

i keeps it real    

As soon as Whitney died I said....Bobbi K will be dead in a month. I hope I am wrong but she is already a cocanie and who knows what else user, combined now with a FORTUNE and the grief of losing her mother she was very close with....what will stop her from over dosing? She will be joining her mother shortly.

BK FINISHED AND GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL. BK WAS HOME SCHOOLED DURING HER LAST YRS CAUSE SHE HAD ISSUES GOING TO PUBLIC SCHOOL. I ASSUME THAT TO BE KIDS TEASING AND RAGGING ON HER ABOUT WHITNEY AND BOBBY. IT WOULD BE SAD AND TOUGH ON BK (JOKES ASIDE..)TO BE RAGGED AND BUTT OF JOKES IN YOUR TEENAGE YRS. FROM HER VIDEO CHATS SHE USED TO DO... I COULD TELL BK HAD A LOT OF ANGER BUILT UP INSIDE HER AND WAS ALWAYS ON EDGE ABOUT TO TELL SOMEONE OFF WHO DISSED HER. SAD WITH HER UPBRINGING AND ENVIRONMENT SHE HAD TO DEAL WITH. #TRUTH!!

Jeez. Houstons been dead just pushing a week and the will if any hasn't been read. The kid is 18. Is 'Uncle Clive' suppose to pay for this rehab? Good Luck with that.


Whitney Houston was wasted right up till her death. Clive Davis has been paying all of her bills but he refused to pay for her funeral.

KInd of irresponsible to put this story up..This isnt about some idiot celebrity doing something stupid, this is a serious matter for this young girl who just lost her mother and her family trying to help her cope .And she has her own issues that could be life threatening..
Why would she need to read this right before she attend her mothers funeral?
I think you could have done without this story today...
