London: Whitney Houston’s daughter is seen taking hits on a smoke-filled bong, in some shocking pictures that have recently surfaced.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, who has just turned 19, will inherit her mum’s 45 million pound estate, plus album sales now running at 7 million pound a week, more than enough to fund her partying lifestyle.
Partygoers claim the grieving girl, known as Krissi, used the 3ft pipe seen in the picture to smoke cannabis she had taken to a party, the Daily Star reported.
A US magazine says the photos were taken from a video recording shot in March last year at a flat shared by several of Brown’s friends in Statesboro, Georgia. On the video, she is heard saying: “Give me the lighter.”
She is then seen igniting what appears to be marijuana in the bong’s bowl. Brown inhales the pot smoke so deeply she bursts into a coughing fit…and moments later takes another “hit”.
In between subsequent smokes, she is seen drinking shots of both Grey Goose and Skyy Blue vodkas.
“She’s obviously a seasoned partier… With the amount of pot and alcohol she was using, I would have passed out. But she was still going strong at 6am the following morning,” the US magazine quoted a fellow partygoer as saying.
Two years ago, Houston paid 31,000 pounds to enrol her daughter in an out-patient programme at Talbott Recovery Centre in Atlanta, Georgia, just miles from their mansion.
Despite Brown’s exposure from a very early age to the wild drug excesses of her parents - one family friend claims Houston bought her a full case of beer in her mid-teens - she remained fiercely loyal to both.
US music journalist Jawn Murray, who interviewed Houston on numerous occasions, said that, “Krissi was her only daughter and her absolute pride and joy.”
“Their relationship was as loving and caring as Whitney’s was with her own mother Cissy and, after Whitney’s divorce in 1997, she and Krissi became even more inseparable,” she said.
An aspiring singer, dancer and musician, Brown even ignored relatives’ pleas to stay away from her father, singer Bobby Brown, 43.
“Despite Bobby being branded the black sheep who introduced Whitney to hard narcotics, they both tried to remain as ¬ functioning parents.
“Just a week before she died, Whitney and Krissi had dinner with Bobby, his girlfriend Alicia and their new child. As a blended family, the truth is they all got along very well,” Murray said.
