Bobbi Kristina Brown Will Live With Her Grandmother Cissy Houston

Fri, February 17, 2012 4:33pm EDT by 137 Comments

HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that Whitney’s mom Cissy will be taking Bobbi Kristina in indefinitely to make sure she doesn’t turn to drugs and alcohol during this difficult time! Do you think this is the best thing for Bobbi Kristina?

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, is reportedly doing much better since she was rushed to the hospital after learning about her mother  Whitney Houston‘s death. But as HollywoodLife.com reported earlier today, her family fears that the funeral tomorrow, Feb. 18, will trigger the initial feelings that sent Bobbi Kristina into a severe breakdown. So that is why her grandmother Cissy Houston has made the firm decision to take her in “indefinitely.”

“Bobbi Kristina is staying with her grandma Cissy Houston in Newark, New Jersey, indefinitely,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Cissy wants to make sure Bobbi Kristina doesn’t relapse into alcohol and drugs.”

The source tells us that Cissy does not believe that Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, will be able to give her the proper support she needs when she’s in such a fragile state.

“Cissy doesn’t think Bobby can provide Bobbi Kristina with a stable lifestyle. And Bobby’s bizarre behavior last night [Feb. 16] at his concert is yet another example of his inconsistencies,” the source tells us. “Bobby has repeatedly told friends that he won’t leave Bobbi Kristina’s side and will find her the best care available, but Cissy knows the number one person in Bobby Brown’s life is Bobby Brown and it will always be that way.”

UPDATE: Bobbi Kristina Arrives At Whitney Houston’s Private Wake

Cissy has even invited Bobbi Kristina’s friends from Atlanta to stay with her as long as they want! She wants to put her granddaughter in the most comfortable, loving environment possible.

“Cissy has invited two of Bobbi Kristina’s girlfriends from Atlanta to come to Newark this weekend to attend the funeral,” the source says. “Cissy has asked the girls to stay with at her home as long as possible to support Bobbi Kristina, especially this Saturday at the services. Cissy wants Bobbi Kristina to be surrounded with as much support and love as possible. Cissy is determined to keep out all of the riff raff in Bobbi Kristina’s life!”

We’re so happy to hear Bobbi Kristina’s family is looking out for her best interest during this terrible time and that she won’t be returning to an empty home in Atlanta.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is it best for Bobbi Kristina to stay with Cissy? Or do you think she’d be better off living with Bobby Brown? Vote and weigh in below!

First of all Bobbi Kristina is 18 years old and the ultimate decision is hers to make. I do believe that this young lady is being respectful to her grandmother at this time because she knows that her grandmother is hurting just like she is, but I also believe that when things settle down she will live on her own. She is not a child, nor is she a baby! She has a beautiful voice and has said many times that she wants to be a singer like her mother and her father. I think that Clive Davis will help her along with her grandmother and I think that Bobby Brown will also help her too. She has experienced so much growing up in such a dysfunctional family. She acted more like the parent while Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston acted like children. She was exposed to so much during that dumb reality show and if you look back at it you will see that. Bobbi Kristina has endured a lot and I believe that after she saw how people responded to the photos of her when she was caught doing drugs at 17 and also seeing the devastation that drugs had on both of her parents, and how the use of drugs ultimately killed her mother whom she loved and adored, I think she will soon speak out and become anti drug spokesperson. At least that is my hope and prayer for this beautiful young princess. My heartfelt condolences goes out to her.

Some are confused? Bobbi Kris most likely wants to be with her Grandmother because it will help her feel closer to Whitney. When my Mom died I was 13 and the only people who could help me feel close to my mom was her parents. Not to mention Bobby Brown thinks of no one but Bobby Brown. He has not mentioned his daughter hardly any and every tome her mentions Whitney he has to throw in because he is bad A#$ Bobby Brown. Yeah, That’s what an impressionable 18 year old who just lost her Mother needs a dad who is so in love with himself he can’t stand beside his daughter at her Mother’s funeral without trying to take the daughter and Grandmother’s pew. If he wants Bobbi Kris around it’s to get his greasy hands on the money Whitney’s estate will be making!

I’m confused! Bobbi Kris is 18 years old!! Does she not get to say what she want? And legally, Bobby is her dad…I think his decision over rules the grand mother. No disrespect to Ms. Sissy and I know she wants to protect her granddaughter. But I don’t think the public’s opinion matters in this situation.

I do believe Bobbi Kristina Brown needs to be closely watched in the company of a loved one. She is definately victum of relapse, more than ever, she needs to be comforted and encouraged that life is precious and is lived by a single individual. Peoples destiny is to live and die, but while lived, live in a way that is inspirational to you and others. My heart goes out to you Bobbi Kristina Brown, may God keep His Mighty Hand of protection on you and your loved ones.

Who are any of you to say what this child should do. Mind your business! You don’t know these people or what goes on in their world everyday. You don’t have the credentials to determine how these people should live. People and their worthless opinions along with the media still don’t get that you have an effect on some of these celebrities because for some insane reason they take to heart your thought and opinions about them. Either your holding them to these high standards you can’t even reach or your just totally trashing them. This child has been though enough, now she has to go on line and read the crap you talk about her parents or your “opinions.”
Clean up your own back yard and stay out of other peoples!

Cissy Houston should know how important it is for a girl to have a relationship with her father. If Bobbi needs family that include her father. And stop blaming Bobby Brown for past mistake. I know you of all people know about forgiveness, since you are a Christian.

Yes, Bobbi-Kris needs a stable and safe environment more so now in her time of profound grief. She needs her family now to positively guide her accordingly. Her grandmother, Cissy will be her guiding force of faith, caring & support her granddaughter needs.

No disrespect to her father but Bobbi Kris needs a stable home environment right now and positive female role models. Bobbi Kris is too vunerable to be without constant supervision of those that love her. It’s so sad that she grew up in a home where her parents were usually high. This may have seemed normal to her. I pray Cissy Houston can show Bobbi Kris what true normal is.

I think Bobbi Kristina needs to go to rehab so she learn about just how dangerous the street drugs and prescription drugs she’s been taking really are.

I read that when Bobbi first heard about Whitney’s death, she drank a bunch of booze to try to calm herself down. When that didn’t help her, she took some freakin’ sleeping pills! Obviously she didn’t know that mixing certain prescription drugs with booze can kill you either.

This is the reason Bobbi had to go to the hospital a few times after Whitney died. I think that Bobbi Kristina has learned that popping a pill or doing drugs is “the answer” when you get upset about something. That belief could end up killing her if she doesn’t go to a rehab that has proven results.

Agreed! I also suggested rehab in my post and she won’t have access to the media while she’s there so the battle between her grandmother and father won’t hinder her treatment. There’s no better time for her to learn proper coping skills and how to deal with this pain without harming herself. She has my prayers, support and deepest sympathy.

Agreed! Truth be told, Bobby Brown isn’t to blame for Whitney’s choices. Sure, it’s easier to say “He did it” but Whitney made those decisions. Period. That does not take away from her talent, her spirit or her grace. Just as Bobby Brown’s issues doesn’t change the fact that he is Bobby Krisina’s father. Cissy has to learn to stop placing blame on him. None of this is healthy for Bobbi Kristina who needs her family right now. All of them!

I was thinking the same exact thought regarding previous remark about “wishing Bobby B to hell. Lets all keep this family in our prayers. Especially, Bobby Kris. Two wrongs does not make a right. Lets pray that Mr. Brown has learn from past mistakes and strongly desire to guide all of his children in a positive and profound manner. I want to see Bobby Kris come out on top regardless of hardship. We love Bobby Kris and hope she makes the right choice. And think about what her mother would say. Praise God!
Thx Nole

A GREAT WOMAN, A GREAT VOICE HAS BEEN SILENCED. Kristina is better off with her mother’s side of the family. I never liked Bobby Brown, he was always a thug, and I like him even less now. The only good thing he ever did for Whitney, was give her Kristina. I hope and pray that when Bobby Brown dies he goes straight to hell, because if he goes to heaven and runs in to Whitney, he might try to cut off her wings!

Oh my. I am happy that you have esp. Yes, the grandmother is up in age. However, she is able to provide a structure and nurturing environment. And she has other god fearing people that would ensure to help her such as to name a few: Tyler, Oprah, Cc, Pastor Carter, New Hope church. Also, all are financially secure. Unlike brown’s of other
