Bobbi Kristina

My Dad is LOSING

His Battle with Alcohol

8/16/2012 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown is NOT conquering his demons ... the demons are conquering him ... this according to his daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Whitney Houston's daughter was leaving LAX with her "brother" Nick Gordon when we asked if her father is "rising above" his alcohol issues now that he's checked himself into rehab.

"'Rise above' is not the word you should use" ... Bobbi told us ... "Not at all."

TMZ previously reported, Brown checked himself into a treatment center earlier this week ... after struggling with booze for years and getting a DUI back in March.

Clearly, not everyone is convinced it's a battle Bobby is going to win.

It seems Bobbi Kristina does not agree with the "Poor Bobby Brown is a victim" narrative that his fans and family are trying to push. Let's see, who do I believe? Random folks or the one person who grew up in the house with Whitney and Bobby and is predisposed to love them both equally??? I'm sure Bobbi Kristina is wise beyond her years and knows what she's talking about.

I doubt that TMZ is reporting this story right. Still, I wish Bobbi Kristina had kept her mouth shut. In fact, the only celebrity kid who has earned the right to give the paparazzi an audience are kids who have become celebrities in their own right. Bobby Brown is a celebrity, whatever one might think of it. Whitney Houston was a celebrity and major entertainer, despite her problems. Bobbi Kris is their spoiled child who needs to get an education, or do something meaningful with her life, besides traveling and tweeting about her sex life with that young man who, I suspect, is going to turn her out completely once she comes into her full inheritance. And Bobbi Kris does not have the character, maturity, or networks of support to stop him from taking complete control of her when that day comes, since she has alienated her grandmother, father, and anyone else who knows the game and has tried to give her advice. Poor Whitney did not try to raise that child, as far as I can tell from her moments in the press.

To all the people saying Whitney got him on hard drugs he was doing hard drugs before he even met her. I dont whether she was doing drugs before him or not but I do know that as soon as she got with him her life went out of control fast and she was a mess throughout that marriage. He used to abuse Whitney spit at her and hit her in front if Bobbi Kristina that is probably the reason she wants nothing to do with him. Obviously she was a adult and nobody forced her to take drugs but he had a big part to her downfall and dismiss. RIP Whitney.

I don't see how she can disrespect the only living parent she has left. He was there in her life and apparently the love of her mom's life. If so called family cared about Whitney's well being she would still be here now wouldn't she?

Just Saying    

Unless there's more to this article not printed, the title is incorrect. Never once did I read Bobbi stating her father's losing his battle against alcohol. Not rising above a situation doesn't mean you've lost a battle.
