Whitney Houston’s death brought tears to our eyes on Saturday, and we only know her through the radio. It’s completely understandable, then, that those closest to her are taking the news much harder; daughter Bobbi Kristina in particular is allegedly struggling with the news. “My daughter did visit with doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles,” dad Bobby Brown said in a statement this afternoon. “She has been released and is presently with my family including her siblings.” Bobbi Kristina was allegedly rushed to the hospital both Saturday night,and Sunday morning following news of her mother’s death. Said Brown, “Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her. However we will get through this tragedy as a family.”
While her father offered scant explanation for Bobbi’s multiple emergencies, another relative was more willing to fill in the blanks. “Everything [was] stressful,” Billy Watson, brother of Whitney’s sister-in-law Patricia Houston and her bodyguard Ray Watson, told Us Weekly. “Her mama died, so she broke down. Nobody expected her to pass as quickly as she did. [Bobbi Kristina] had a nervous breakdown.” Luckily, Watson adds, “She’s alright.” We hope it’s some solace to Bobbi and the family that literally millions of people are tearing up to “The Greatest Love of All” right this second…and probably will be for a long time to come.
