One of Whitney Houston’s family friends tells HollywoodLife.com the family wants Bobbi Kristina to move to New Jersey to be closer to them during this difficult time

Whitney Houston‘s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is fighting for her life, as HollywoodLife.com first told you and now her grandma and extended family wants her to move out of Atlanta, Georgia and closer to them.

“Whitney’s family and close friends want Bobbi Kristina to move back to New Jersey,” a friend of the family’s tells us. “They want Bobbi Kristina to have a fresh start and Whitney’s mom Cissy is the driving force behind this.”

Before her sudden death last week, Whitney was planning on moving back to New Jersey, so the family feels like this is what she wanted for her 18-year-old daughter.

“Life in Atlanta is too chaotic for Bobbi Kristina and she isn’t particularly close to her father Bobby Brown,” our source says. “Whitney’s family and friends want to make sure Bobbi Kristina is surrounded by healthy, positive influences. Bobbi Kristina had at one point expressed an interest in moving to Los Angeles, but she was so incredibly close to her mom, she would never, ever leave her side.”

Adds the insider, “Whitney was also Bobbi Kristina’s best friend. Whitney’s family wants Bobbi Kristina to have a huge support system and they feel like they can provide that for her in N. J.”

Neighbors at her Atlanta home told us Bobbi Kristina was largely left to her own devices and was considered quite the party animal in her neighborhood. Perhaps a move to New Jersey to be with her grandmother would be a good idea.

Regardless of what she chooses to do, our thoughts and prayers are with Bobbi Kristina and her family during this difficult time.
