I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to deal with the death of a friend or family member while the whole world is watching and scrutinizing your every move. That’s why I feel for Bobbi Kristina Brown. After making headlines last week for falling asleep in a bathtub in the same hotel where her mother died, she is back in the spotlight for allegedly getting high after her mother’s funeral.
A couple hours after the funeral the family went to eat at a nearby restaurant but couldn’t find Bobbi. Two sources told The Daily Beast that she was found using drugs and that her family didn’t find her until just before the burial on Sunday morning.
Since then, the media has erupted with questions of whether she has a drug problem. Although her family won’t say she has a problem, it was reported well before Whitney’s death that Bobbi was photographed snorting cocaine.
Her spiral downwards is not uncommon with celebrities so it’s true that her behaviour shouldn’t be treated lightly. However, the girl’s mother just died and constantly berating her in the press isn’t going to make the situation any better. I can understand what lengths someone might go to to neutralize such fresh pain. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not condoning drugs in any way, I’m just saying that she has been through a lot and it’s not nice to kick her when she’s already down.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about the situation. What do you think?
