Bobbi Kristina Reportedly Quits Tyler Perry’s Show
Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina reportedly stormed off the set last week of her new television series ‘Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse.’ According to RadarOnline, the budding actress quit the show after filming only a few episodes of the TBS sitcom.
Apparently, Kristina is still struggling with the death of her late mother. Sources at Tyler Perry’s studio in Atlanta say that Kristina simply walked off the set in tears and left. “She thought she was ready for this, but she wasn’t,” one source told RadarOnline.com.
“Bobbi Kristina had a private breakdown and barely anyone saw it,” the source continued. “She was crying and said she needed a minute, she needed a break to get herself together. But then she decided she couldn’t handle doing the show right now. She’s still mourning her mom.”
Kristina had a recurring role on the show, which is scheduled to air its second season in July. Perry seems forgiving about Kristina’s abrupt departure. “He understands. He’s upset and worried about her,” said the insider. “But now he’s had to do a lot of restructuring work on the show.”
Since Whitney’s death, Kristina has been embroiled in a myriad of drama. Most recently, the 19-year-old teen was caught gambling at a Las Vegas casino, which is illegal since she’s underage.
Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, downplayed the rumors surrounding his daughter and supports her to the fullest. “That’s my baby girl. She’ll forever be my baby girl. She’s doing what she’s doing, and I’m extremely proud of her,” Brown told MTV News. “She’s acting and she’s working on music and she’s doing what she has to do to recover from her loss — our loss.”
Despite reports of his daughter’s past substance abuse, Brown insists that drugs are not a factor in Kristina’s life. “Any parent that has a teenager in their life, they go through things. They go through phases that they might not be doing exactly what you want them to do in life, but they grow out of it, and my baby girl has grown out of it,” he says. “I trust and believe that she’s smart enough to not go down the same road that maybe I did in the past or her mother did in the past. She’s extremely smart.”
