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.

I bet there was cocaine, marijuana and who knows what else in parts of the house where Bobbi Kristina could easily access. I can visualize just about any curious teenager wanting to "do what the adults do" and maybe try snorting some cocaine or smoking some weed if they found some laying around late at night when their parents were asleep. I used to sneak drinks of booze when I was about 14 myself.

There are pictures on the internet of Whitney's house in Atlanta from 2005 that Whitney's sister in law took. Her house looked like a total disaster area with drugs in the bathroom everywhere. Visualize what a typical crack house looks like and that's how Whitney's house looked. It must have been a nightmare for Whitney's cleaning ladys. I bet Whitney was way too paranoid from the crack to have them come over to clean up her house, so nobody did it probably.

Crack cocaine and meth makes people terrified all the time that "people are out to get them" .... plotting to haul them off to jail, the insane asylum, kill them, etc. Watch that TV show "Breaking Bad" if you want to see what crystal meth does to people. Meth addicts act like mindless zombies who only care about getting their next "fix".

Their teeth fall out and they scratch the skin off their face and body. It's scary stuff. Meth is probably THE worst drug you can take, with crack cocaine and heroin tied for a close second. I've never done any of that crap, but I know a few people from high school that have. They looked like somebody had been poisoning them and their brains were so fried they barely made any sense.

I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree. I blame Whitney for the kids addiction. And you think with all of the money spent on drugs they could at least get her nose and the gap in her teeth fixed

She got her father's ugly mug just like Alex Joel got her dad's looks. These poor girls. They must cry everyday knowing they could have looked like their mothers but don't. Alexa Joel tried to off herself too. Bobbi K won't make it past 30. Too ugly and too much of a messed up upbringing. Sad, but the truth.

JFC TMZ! Understandably the "family" is talking to the media, but they are being forthright and laying out plans relating to a delicate issue. Why show so little respect as to then go and try and contact the daughter and release the plans (& on the day of her moms funeral)? It's like you are just standing out the front of the big top with a bull horn shouting, "come one come all". How about a bit of decorum. Please stop disappointing us.

Really? We are going to wait until after the funeral to tell her...oh yeah? And here is the icing on the cake..
"Attempts to reach Bobbi directly were unsuccessful" So, you aren't going to tell her until after the services today, however, you were trying to contact her? What is wrong with people? No surprise on the substance abuse deal. As much as I loved Whitney, her untimely demise may have saved Bobbi. I say that as I reflect on Lindsay Lohan and her home girl..oops, I mean her mother...

it's media outlets like this that caused her mother's death. Why can't you guys just leave people the hell alone and stop making up **** for the sake of a headline! This poor child is suffering enough - stop already!

Whoever wrote this piece and whomever approved it to post should ROT IN HELL. Leave the poor kid ALONE. If her best chance not to end up like her mother is by her family ambushing her into rehab it's not your place to tell her. You people are really sick. LEAVE HER THE F*** ALONE YOU GREEDY SLIMEBAGS.

SPOILER ALERT... oh, wait, TMZ already did that. BTW, having a father like BAD*ss Bobby Brown isn't going to help young Bobbi. He best just stay on the road making money off of Whitney's name.
