Bobbi Kristina said to be in 'a terrible state'
It’s been less than a month since Whitney Houston‘s tragic death at just 48.
But already her family and ex-husband Bobby Brown are facing fresh agony – this time over her daughter Bobbi.
The 19-year-old’s family were already horrified when a disturbing picture of her appearing to snort cocaine emerged last May.
Now a US magazine has published a photo of Bobbi with what appears to be a bong, thought to have been taken around the same time.
And fears are growing that the teen could get caught in the same destructive spiral of drink and drugs that blighted her mum’s life.
Whitney’s close friend Malik Pointer, 45 – son of Pointer Sisters singer Ruth – stood by the star during her two-decade battle with booze, coke and crack and says Bobbi’s family are petrified she might go down the same road.
He tells Now: ‘She’s in a terrible state.
‘She feels like she’s being attacked left, right and centre – and all at a time when she’s at her lowest.
‘She just wants everyone to go away.
‘Her grandmother Cissy is very worried about her.’
