Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown (the singer's only child with ex-husband Bobby Brown), had become her mother's caretaker in the months before her untimely death. Now the daughter is obviously bereft after her mother's heartbreaking end.
Us Weekly editor Ian Drew said that Bobbi Kristina was the adult in the relationship she had with her struggling mother. That had to have been incredibly tough for the teenage girl. She is at an age where she really needed her mother's guidance, and while the two had been reportedly working in the studio together to launch the daughter's singing career, she still had to take care of her mother.
Drew said, "Bobbi Kristina basically grew up her mother's caretaker, similar to Frances Bean." Of course, Bean eventually left Courtney Love to move on with her own life, and that is not what Whitney Houston's daughter ended up doing in the months leading up to her death.
While Bobbi Kristina Brown idolized her mother and wanted to be mostly like her, she did not do drugs like her late mom. Hopefully Whitney Houston's death will not lead the young adult down the road of addiction her mother had experienced these past decades.
