Less than 24 hours after Whitney Houston's tragic death, her ex-husband Bobby Brown has reportedly rushed to his daughter, Bobbi Kristina's side. Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized for anxiety and stress after having been turned away from her late mother's hotel room by the Beverly Hills police.
Whitney Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown flew from Mississippi to support his daughter Bobbi Kristina after she was hospitalized twice in less than 24 hours for a combination of "nervous breakdown and emotional exhaustion." Brown reportedly arrived at L.A.'s Cedar Sinai Medical Center an hour after his daughter was admitted. Although sources report that her father's presence was a comfort to Bobbi Kristina, the 19-year-old was in a "complete state of shock."
Although Bobbi Kristina has since been released from the hospital, she still has a long road ahead of her of grieving, grief counselling, and recovery. Best of luck to her. And good luck to her father who is no doubt experiencing some intense emotional turmoil. Especially since many of Whitney Houston's fans and fellow celebrities consider him responsible for her long, painful, and eventually fatal downward spiral from the apex of fame and fortune into drug addiction and disgrace. It's a tragic situation for all concerned.
