Bobbi Kristina Finally Getting Life Support
Firstly, this article does not set out to denigrate Whitney Houston's talent, nor her legacy as one of the most spectacular singers of all time, but a comment on the sad circumstances of her personal life and the resulting emotional fallout of her daughter. Over the past few years there have been indications that Bobbi Kristina was following down the crackpipe-strewn path of her parents, including pictures of her sucking from a bong at a friend's house, snorting lines of coke, and then evidently again using cocaine before her mother's funeral. It's no surprise. In her short life, she had poor role models, Whitney wasn't a role model, nor was Bobby much of a father figure.

In 2009, Whitney admitted in an interview with Mother Confessor Oprah Winfrey that she lived in her pajamas for seven months while doing drugs and Bobby, in another interview, said that he was an alcoholic and also addicted to heroin. Al Bowman, Whitney's chauffeur for years, has spoken recently to say he witnessed Bobby and Whitney get wasted almost daily in the back of the limo, but a pivotal point for him came when he saw them smoking crack cocaine in front of a five-year old Kristina.

That Kristina was able to survive the chaos of her parents' relationship is nothing short of miraculous.
