As Bobbi Kristina lies in hospice, Tyler Perry took a moment to share his thoughts on the coverage of Whitey Houston’s daughter. On July 17, the ‘Madea’ actor confirmed she was still alive and asked everyone to show ‘decency and respect’ during this heartbreaking time.
Well said, Tyler Perry. The 45-year-old filmmaker has long been a friend to Bobbi Kristina, 22, and her family — including her late mother, Whitney Houston. The Madea star was seen visiting Bobby Kristina in hospice, hours after he shared a very emotional post that confirmed Whitney’s daughter was still alive.
Before Tyler visited Bobbi Kristina at the Peachtree Hospice Center on July 17, he shared his thoughts about her in a post to his official Facebook page. Tyler said he woke up “with Whitney on my mind.” From there, Tyler laid into the media coverage over Whitney’s daughter, who he confirmed was still with us.
“For some reason, it has become human nature in our society to look for, seek out, and celebrate darkness, glory in tragedy, and enjoy reading and reporting it,” Tyler wrote. He also expressed sadness over the reports over Bobbi Kristina, blasting those who “find it OK to speak death onto those who are still alive.”
Fans have been curious over Bobbi’s condition ever since her family moved her to hospice care in late-June. Since her admission to the Peachtree Hospice center in Georgia, many of Bobbi’s friends and relatives have visited her, including Tyler. This led many to speculate they were saying their last good-byes as the young girl rests during her final days.
While Tyler called out the media for its reporting, he did acknowledge fans have a sincere interest in Bobbi Kristina’s condition. Tyler assured fans that “[her] family will issue an official statement if something changes. He ended his post asking if everyone could “just pray for Krissi, and the Houston and Brown families?”
This morning I woke up with Whitney on my mind. I couldn’t help but think about all that she must have dreamed for her child. I know this was not her dream … to speak death onto those who are still alive ... I assure you, the family will issue an official statement if something changes. Until then, can we just pray for Krissi, and the Houston and Brown families?Posted by Tyler Perry on Friday, July 17, 2015
As Bobbi Kristina’s family members tend to her needs, those who can’t make to the hospice facility are finding ways to connect with her. Her grandmother, Cissy Houston, reportedly can not make the trip due to alleged health concerns. Instead, she reportedly calls her granddaughter daily to speak with Bobbi Kristina.
Like Tyler asked, our prayers and thoughts continue to be with the Houston and Brown families during this ordeal.
