The rash of foolish, irresponsible media attention to Bobbi Kristina has already begun. Several media outlets are already reporting that Bobbi Kristina was found in a hotel using drugs after her mother’s funeral. While Bobbi Kristina has had her problems with drugs, there’s no reason to feel that she would jump to this remedy after her mother’s funeral. In fact, it would be more rational to think she would do the opposite.
According to the Daily Beast, a family spokesperson for the Houston family gave the most truthful account of Bobbi Kristina’s disappearance after her mother’s funeral saying:
“There was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina’s whereabouts last night for a short time, but she’s OK,” a Houston family spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “She needed some time alone.” The spokesperson says Bobbi Kristina isn’t on drugs and is just emotionally fragile at this time. “She is going through a very hard time as you can expect.”
Everything else sounds sensational and exaggerated. Of course the family would be concerned if they couldn’t locate her after the funeral, but it was probably expected…it’s expected of any of us that might lose a parent we love. But, the media has let the games begin with ripping accounts from all types of sources.
The sources in this Daily Beast report read like a “he said, she said” report. The sources are as follows: “source who was with the family when they received the news”; “a second source was told of the event from a member of the family”; “one source, a longtime family friend” or “a source at the funeral who witnessed the conversation” . There’s more sources in this report than a crackhouse raid with a $25,000 reward.
