Since January 31, Bobbi Kristina Brown has been surrounded by family, who pray for her as she breathes with the help of a ventilator and other life support measures. But what occurred before she was found unconscious in her home has remained a mystery — until now. Sources say that the 21-year-old used drugs, including heroin, before she was found, reported People.
Those insiders revealed that Bobbi Kristina repeatedly took cocaine and Xanax as well as heroin during the months prior to that frantic rush to the hospital She also drank heavily. And on that morning when she was taken by ambulance, she had been under the influence of drugs, says a source. Since then, she has remained in critical condition, dependent on life support measures to survive.
In addition to the drug abuse, Bobbi Kristina Brown drank alcohol frequently, according to sources. One insider commented that she appeared to be high, having problems speaking clearly.
Since the death of her mother Whitney Houston on February 11 three years ago, Bobbi Kristina had been depressed, trying rehab, then returning to drugs in an attempt to block out her pain from her mother’s loss.
In addition, the young woman was dangerously thin, which a source links to her depression.
“How thin she had gotten is an indicator. This girl was trying hard, but she didn’t have any support system. She was still dealing with a lot of grief over her mother.”
Whitney Houston also was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub. When an autopsy was performed after attempts to revive her failed, Houston had cocaine in her system.
As the Inquisitr reported, Bobbi Kristina’s father Bobby Brown has repeatedly asked for privacy as he prays for his daughter to recover.
But despite his pleas, members of his family have repeatedly given interviews to the media, and some reportedly are seeking perks from money to free hotel rooms.
Addressing that topic, family lawyer Christopher Brown asked that those interviews stop.
“At this time it is requested that the media cease speaking with unauthorized members of the family. The integrity of the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina must remain uncompromised. Various members of the family have provided media interviews, however, none of them are approved visitors to see Bobbi Kristina. None of them have firsthand knowledge of Bobbi Kristina’s treatment and the medical staff at Emory University Hospital has not communicated with them.”
In addition to Bobbi Kristina’s own drug usage, sources say that some of her friends are associated with a drug ring in Atlanta, reported OK magazine. That connection may open new questions about the young woman’s own addiction battles.
Moreover, her friend, Chelsea Bennett, died last March. The cause of death reportedly was heroin overdose. The girls were close friends.
