With news of Bobbi Kristina’s death likely coming any day now, TMZ is calling the sale of Bobbi’s death bed photo pretty disgusting. TMZ claims that they been offered the photo of Kristina in a hospice near death, but that they refused to buy the photo of Bobbi. Obviously, TMZ has seen the deathbed photo of Bobbi, however, because they’ve described the pic as being taken at the hospice where Kristina resides near Atlanta.
The woman pictured in the deathbed photo with Bobbi is one of Kristina’s family members, along with the “extended” family member who took the photo of Bobbi. Since TMZ says that the photo of Bobbi is being offered to a variety of websites and publications, and that some are interested, expect to see that photo of Bobbi hit the web before long.
Deathbed photos are nothing new. As reported by CBS News, a deathbed photo of Gary Coleman was sold to Globe Magazine, who published the distasteful pic right along with those publications reporting about the sale of the deathbed photo. It is rumored that Coleman’s deathbed photo sold for $10,000 — so all these years later, estimates of Bobbi’s deathbed photos in the popular digital age would likely way exceed that number.
While deathbed photos and feigned outrage is the nature of the beast, Bobbi’s best friend calls Nick Gordon pure evil, says the Daily Beast. Finally speaking out about what she says was an abusive relationship, Alex Reid has spoken about Gordon’s violence against Kristina.
“He was known to choke her, definitely. Throw her into walls. Punch her in the jaw. Just, like, unbelievable stuff.”
Although Reid admits she never witnessed the abuse in person, Alex did speak of seeing Bobbi’s bruises via FaceTime, the medium Kristina would use to bemoan to her friend the violence she said she suffered at the hands of Nick.
As reported by the Inquisitr, Gordon allegedly cleaned up blood prior to police and EMT workers arriving on the fateful day that Bobbi was found unresponsive in a bathtub.
When Patrick Swayze was near death from his battle with pancreatic cancer, his widow Lisa Niemi Swayze included a deathbed photo of her husband in her book, titled Worth Fighting For. Reportedly Patrick was bald and very thin in the photo, reports CBS News. Whenever Bobbi’s deathbed photo hits the press — and for whatever reasons loved ones release deathbed photos (either due to selfish monetary gain or altruistic remembrance) — Kristina’s last photo and those of other celebrities will likely always cause strong reactions.
