New York: Hollywood Producer-Director Tyler Perry wants the media to give Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, “some room to breathe and grieve”.

Perry, who cast the 19-year-old in his TBS series ‘For Better or Worse,’ posted a note on his blog asking people to give the aspiring entertainer more space in the wake of the death of her famous mother.

“After Whitney’s funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into ‘For Better or Worse.’ I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on,” a leading daily has quoted him as writing on his blog.

“Yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time. So please ... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve,” he added.
