Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown Stage An Intervention With Daughter Bobbi Kristina

Thu, December 16, 2010 12:07pm EDT by 4 Comments


The divorced couple has battled their own fair share of substance abuse problems, but they’re doing everything to ensure their daughter doesn’t follow in their footsteps.

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown are worried about their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, after photos of the 17-year-old partying and smoking were made public. The couple, who divorced in 2006 after 14 years of marriage, reunited recently to hold in intervention for the teen, according to the National Enquirer. “Whitney and Bobby sat Bobbi Kristina down and read her the riot act,” a source close to the family tells the tabloid.

“They brought in counselors and they’re trying to drum into her that because of their problems, she’s genetically predisposed to alcoholism and drug addiction.”

Both of her talented parents have indeed become more famous for their substance abuse problems than their singing ability in the past decade. Bobby has spent time in rehab for cocaine, marijuana and alcohol, while Whitney, 47, once declared “crack is whack” before it was revealed that she actually had a $300,000-a-year drug habit. She’s been to rehab twice.

Bobbie Kristina is out of control

With those two for parents, I don’t think it’s a surprise that their daughter is dabbling in drugs. But I give Bobby, 41, and Whitney credit for trying to keep her on the right track and stop her from making the same mistakes that they did. “They’ll do anything to spare Bobbi Kristina from the substance abuse hell they’ve both experienced,” explains the source.

When she was 14 years old, photos of Bobbi Kristina smoking a blunt emerged and she spent some time in a psychiatric hospital for allegedly attempting to stab Whitney and slit her own wrists.

And while they know first-hand just how infuriating an intervention can be, it’s a risk they’re willing to take to save their girl. “Whitney and Bobby are torn because they don’t want to alienate her daughter and overact, but they realize she’s at risk for serious addiction problems, just like them. They’re dealing with these issues as a family and they’re praying that it’s not too late to get Bobbi Kristina back on track,” adds the source.

We certainly wish them the best of luck. HollyMoms, do you think they’re doing the right thing?

Doing the right thing would have been both of them getting sterilized before either of them could procreate. Children don’t ask to be born, and unfortunately, cannot choose their parents.
