As Bobbi Kristina Brown continues to fight for her life, a drug dealer -- who claimed he sold Whitney Houston’s daughter heroin sometimes -- died Monday, Radar Online wrote in an exclusive report. Steven Stepho had tried to get his life back in order, and supposedly stopped selling drugs, but his life was cut short by his untimely death, sources said.
Stepho, 22, made headlines when he told Radar Online he helped Brown and her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, “get [drugs] sometimes, but not regularly.” Now, family and friends suspect he died from a fatal drug overdose, but the exact cause of death has not been revealed by the Fulton Country Medical Examiner’s office. His toxicology test is being conducted in a private lab and will be revealed in two weeks, Radar Online said.
Even though he had a troubled past, Stepho wanted to straighten up. He was going to be a father and had “been on the path to sobriety,” a source told Radar Online on Thursday. “That part of my life is way in the past,” Stepho told Radar Online in March. “I made mistakes and have paid my dues for those mistakes.”
Bobbi Kristina’s death is reportedly “imminent.” Her family placed her in hospice care, where she is no longer receiving medical care so she can die in peace. Her family is picking out her burial plot in a Westfield, New Jersey, cemetery -- the same one where her late mother, Whitney Houston, was buried over three years ago after she drowned in a bathtub, a source told Extra. They want her to be buried in the same spot so they can be “together into eternity,” the insider added.
Bobbi Kristina has been comatose since she was found facedown in a bathtub on Jan. 31. At first, it was deemed that the tragic event was just an accident, but rumors of foul play have begun to flare up. There have been numerous accusations that Gordon abused Bobbi Kristina, and now he has lawyered up with Casey Anthony’s famed attorney, Jose Baez.
