Despite Kevin Costner telling mourners to “guard your bodies”at Whitney Houston‘s funeral on Saturday, Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was allegedly found doing drugs afterward.
During an emotional service, Costner reminded everyone, especially Bobbi Kristina, about the importance of protecting and respecting our bodies:
To you, Bobbi Kristina, and to all those young girls who are dreaming that dream, thinking that maybe they aren’t good enough, I think Whitney would tell you, guard your bodies. And guard the precious miracle of your own life. Then sing your hearts out.
Nevertheless, following her mother’s funeral, the 18 year old disappeared and was later found at a hotel doing drugs, according to the Daily Beast.
One family friend told reporters:
Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell. It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. Ms Cissy [Houston, Whitney's mother] was beside herself.
The source went on to say that although Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother won’t admit out loud that her granddaughter has a drug problem, they have been trying to keep her straight even before Whitney’s death.
Bobbi Kristina was reportedly hospitalized for “stress and anxiety” the day after her mother’s death and was said to be upset that her dad, Bobby Brown, left the funeral following a disagreement over seating arrangements.
A spokesperson for the Houston family denied Bobbi Kristina was on drugs and said she just needed some time alone. But, according to a new report on TMZ.com , Houston’s family is pushing for Bobbi Kristina to enter a ‘live-in rehab facility’ as soon as possible, but are willing to give her time to grieve over her mother’s passing first.
Our hearts go out to Bobbi Kristina during this very difficult time, and we hope that she is able to learn from her mother’s mistakes and get help for any drug problems that she may have.
