A photograph of Bobbi Kristina Brown, likely taken by a relative from the hospice care where she is currently housed, was being sold for a rate higher than $100,000, Entertainment Tonight reported on Friday. The photo was forwarded to many media houses, but most of the outlets refused to solicit the offer.
The circulation of the photo was criticized by Bobbi Kristina’s relatives, who have been at her bedside at the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Georgia since mid-June. Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah Brown had slammed the person, who clicked the photo on Friday, and said that she would make everyone who visited Bobbi Kristina in the hospital take a lie detector test to find the person who clicked the picture.
“I'll tell you what! You took that picture thinking you gon get some money for it ... and that’s gon be it! ...guess what!????!!!! I will myself if no one else does-see to it that -YOU be revealed!!!! Trust me! I will put the fire so far up the medias a-- to reveal who they PAID for that,” Leolah said in a Facebook post, adding: “Aint nobody stupid! And no matter how much you keep that ugly smile on your ugly and evil face-and try to make the world THINK your hands are clean...YOU WILL BE EXPOSED!
"YOU will not do to my niece what YOU did to Whitney! Everyone knows who YOU ARE!"
Some reports also suggested that there have been talks to tent the hospice care facility’s entrance to protect the family members from onlookers. However, the security has not been increased yet, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Ray Watson, the brother of the 22-year-old's aunt Pat Houston, was seen visiting Bobbi Kristina at the hospice care, according to People magazine. Watson was also a bodyguard of the late Whitney Houston until 2012, when she was found dead in a bathroom of her hotel room in Beverly Hills.
Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious at her Atlanta home in January that she shared with her boyfriend Nick Gordon. Gordon is accused of physically abusing Bobbi Kristina and stealing money from her bank account in a lawsuit filed by her conservator.
