Bobbi Kristina Brown: Autopsy “Still Necessary” to Determine Cause of Death …

Bobbi Kristina’s struggle for happiness.

Whitney Houston, known as “America’s Sweetheart,” was an impossible act to follow, especially for her young daughter who described herself as an aspiring actress and singer. Her voice, an ideal blend of power, grace and beauty, made classics out of songs like “Saving All My Love For You,” ”I Will Always Love You” and “The Greatest Love of All.” She earned six Grammys and starred in the films “The Bodyguard” and “The Preacher’s Wife.” Her then-husband Bobby Brown, who had a bad-boy image, also became a huge star, selling platinum records with New Edition and going solo before drugs and legal woes derailed his career. Bobbi Kristina appeared alongside both parents in 2005 on the Bravo reality show ‘Being Bobby Brown’, which captured her parents fighting, swearing and appearing in court. The Hollywood Reporter said it revealed that Brown was “even more vulgar than the tabloids suggest,” and managed “to rob Houston of any last shreds of dignity.” Years earlier, as Houston was preparing to give birth to Bobbi Kristina, she expressly left Bobby Brown out of her will, putting everything in a trust “for the benefit of her children and more remote descendants,” according to the Houstons’ 2012 petition.

Houston brought Gordon into her family, and while she never formally adopted him or included him in the will, both teenagers called her “mom.” The threesome’s tight bond was shattered when Houston’s assistant found the singer’s lifeless body face-down in a foot of water in her bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hotel just before the Grammy Awards in 2012. Authorities found prescription drugs in the suite, and evidence of heart disease and cocaine in her body, but determined her death was an accidental drowning. Bobbi Kristina, then 18, was at the hotel and became so hysterical she had to be admitted to hospital. “She wasn’t only a mother, she was a best friend,” she told Winfrey. But in one telling episode, the late singer’s relatives lectured the pair about drinking after they showed up in an obviously altered state, and accused Gordon of failing to take care of the grieving girl.

The complaint accused him of being violent toward her and taking more than $11 000 from her account while she was in a medically induced coma after the January 31 tragedy. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said he and his office are interested in reviewing the investigative file to determine whether any charges will be filed.

The Houstons called Bobbi Kristina “a highly visible target for those who would exercise undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from (her) resources and celebrity,” and urged a judge to delay how quickly she could control the money. In May, a judge appointed Bobby Brown and Pat Houston as co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina, giving them joint responsibility in decisions related to her care and medical needs.

But her untimely death revived a hunger for her music, and her name and likeness generated revenue that became part of Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance. By January 2014, the young couple who grew up as brother and sister were sharing a townhome in Roswell, Georgia, and calling themselves husband and wife. If you didn’t get it the first time that is.” They got identical “WH” tattoos with flying doves on their wrists, and Gordon added a large portrait of Houston’s face on his arm. “Young people today are up against so much with social media and everything else that presents itself to them,” Pat Houston told The Associated Press. “We try to be there for her, just to try to guide and direct her.” Judging from her postings online, Bobbi Kristina was focused on the approaching anniversary of her mother’s death. In one of her last tweets, she said, “Littlelady&yourgrowing young man @nickdgordon miss you mommy ..:’) SOmuch.. loving you more every sec. #Anniversary!” Has a comment offended you?
