Bobbi Kristina: How not to make money from a sick sibling
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s relatives are part of a reality TV show which shows them coming to terms with the singer being in an induced coma in hospital, it has been claimed. A source told TMZ that at least three relatives of the 21-year-old’s father Bobby Brown have taken part in the unnamed show, part of which documents Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life.
A lawyer for R&B artist Bobby Brown told the website he would not personally be taking part in the show. Although no footage is shot inside Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, the show is said to include debriefs in family members’ homes after their visits.
There are already reportedly tensions between her family members.
Whitney Houston’s daughter remains in a serious condition after being found unconscious in a bathtub at her home on January 31.
Last month Bobby Brown’s sister allegedly smacked her son in the head with a bottle during a hotel fight after the family gathered in Atlanta to be at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside.
Tina Brown hit Shayne Brown in the head with a bottle at the bar of the W. Midtown Atlanta Hotel, according to an Atlanta Police report.
Shayne Brown then drove himself to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for lacerations to the side of the head, while Tina Brown took off before police arrived, according to the report.
The police report noted that the family had been at a birthday party for Bobby Brown – who had just turned 46 – when the mother and son started arguing over a valet parking ticket.
There is also tension between family members and her boyfriend Nick Gordon, who launched a Twitter rant against Bobby Brown last week. Gordon, who has reportedly been banned from visiting Bobbi Kristina, told Brown to ‘grow up’ – insisting she will hate him when she wakes up.
The angry tirade came hours after attorneys from the Brown family told Gordon he will not be allowed at her bedside until he reveals exactly what happened the evening before Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a bathtub.
Gordon also insisted he has taken care of his girlfriend ’24/7′ since her mother died in 2012.
Last Monday, he first tweeted: ‘Okay, so I’ll probably get in trouble for this,’ before uploading a screenshot of damning text messages he claimed to have sent Bobby Brown.
The first, underneath a picture of the new Bobbi Kristina tattoo on his right arm, read: ‘Man to man I love your daughter.’
He added: ‘I don’t know why you won’t let me see her. Grow up. Your daughter is going to hate you when she wakes up.’
The messages were deleted from his profile but he later wrote: ‘Crazy how all the Browns came to the hospital when this went down. I’ve been with her 24/7 watching over her and mom. Bobby left when it got heavy.
Gordon then claimed: ‘Bobby seen his daughter 4 times in the last 5 yrs.’
He added: ‘Now him and his family want Whitney’s $$$ which belongs to Krissi or Cissy.’
The 21-year-old, who is on life support at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, began having seizures when they began taking her off various medications, it was reported.
It was then decided to keep her in the coma.
