Tyler Perry penned an emotional letter in regards to Bobbi Kristina Brown and her late mother Whitney Houston. This comes on the heels of Bobbi Kristina’s family deciding to move her to hospice. As she deteriorates, her outcome looks grim.
In a Facebook post, Terry pleaded to people (specifically the media) to respect the privacy of the two families as they go through yet another difficult time.
“As difficult as this time is for the people that love both Whitney and Krissi, what makes it more egregious is the blatant disrespect, lies, and ignorance that are rapidly printed in this awful time. For some reason, it has become human nature in our society to look for, seek out, and celebrate darkness, glory in tragedy, and enjoy reading and reporting it.”
Perry continued, “May I ask you all to please show some decency and respect? Not only to Krissi’s family, but also to the other families that are there in this place. Not only is Krissi at the center but there are several other families who are grieving the loss of their loved ones at the same time. It’s heartbreaking to think that even in a time like this, this child is still not allowed any peace. I assure you, the family will issue an official statement if something changes.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Tyler Perry has been a very present figure in the Brown and Houston family. In fact, Perry admitted that he tried to get Whitney Houston help when she was struggling with substance abuse issues. While on Oprah Winfrey’s Oprah’s Next Chapter, he opened up about his friendship with the late singer.
“I felt a huge responsibility for her, for Whitney, herself. From the first day we sat down in that restaurant and had a conversation where she was so open with me, I felt a responsibility to do all I could to help her.”
He continued, “I sensed, like most people who deal with people who have addiction issues, they sense that there is a ‘death day’ coming.”
Houston was found in a bathtub of the Beverly Hilton Hotel a day before the Grammys in 2012. The coroner report ruled that it was an accidental death by drowning and effects of heart disease. She also had cocaine in her system at the time of her death.
Bobbi Kristina was found face down in the bathtub in her Atlanta home in January. Doctors went on to say that she has “global and irreversible brain damage.” When Bobbi Kristina was found, Perry had flown Bobbi’s father, Bobby Brown, to be at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside.
