Bobbi Kristina Brown’s father, Bobby Brown, will pursue the person who allegedly took a picture of his daughter in her bed at a hospice care in Georgia, TMZ reported. According to reports, an “extended family member” is suspected to be trying to sell the photo to media outlets for over $100,000.
Brown told a TMZ reporter Sunday that he did not know who took the photograph of his 22-year-old daughter but he would expose the person responsible. The Browns and the Houstons have been at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside since she was admitted to the Peachtree Christian Hospice in mid-June. The two families are bracing for bad news as hopes of a recovery for the daughter of Brown and the late Whitney Houston fades.
“I'm just looking to get justice,” Brown told TMZ outside Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday, when asked if he would “possibly sue” the person responsible for circulating the picture.
Brown also said that he supported Leolah Brown for expressing her anger over the photo and slamming the person responsible for trying to profit from Bobbi Kristina’s condition.
Security outside the hospice care has reportedly increased since reports of the photo surfaced Friday. “No one is allowed to bring any cameras or cellphones into her room,” a source close to the situation told Radar Online.
“Everyone has to check their purses or bags at the nurse’s station.” The family “is in lock down mode,” as they are struggling to come to terms with Bobbi Kristina’s deteriorating condition, according to the source.
“All anyone wants to do is protect Krissy. She deserves her privacy at this time and who knows what any of the family members would do. There have been so many money struggles that they’re not taking any chances with her being exploited in this state,” the source told Radar Online.
The Browns and the Houstons have been feuding since Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized on Jan. 31, when she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Atlanta home. Months of medical treatment at several facilities have failed to bring an improvement in her condition, forcing the family to take her off life support.
Brown, who performed in Atlanta on the Fourth of July, was “having trouble focusing” and apologized to the audience for “forgetting lyrics and dance moves.”
Last week, reports claimed that the family is making preparations for Bobbi Kristina’s funeral and that her body “could be placed atop Whitney’s coffin,” allowing the two to be “together into eternity.”
