Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 18-year-old daughter of singer Whitney Houston, didn't disappear after her mother's funeral on Saturday to do drugs -- she was spending time with her family, said Darlene Love, Houston's godmother. Love spoke out after reports surfaced that Bobbi Kristina went missing after the funeral service.
Not True. Not true. She was with us, Love told Access Hollywood earlier this week. She was with the family the whole time.
The Daily Beast reported on Sunday that sources close to the family said that Bobbi Kristina disappeared for several hours after her mother's funeral at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J. the sources told the Web site that there was panic on Sunday, when Houston was being transported to the cemetery for her mother's burial.
Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina's cell, a source, a longtime family friend reportedly told The Daily Beast. It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. Ms. Cissy [Houston, Whitney's mother] was beside herself.
But Love said that Bobbi Kristina was with family and everybody went to a restaurant. She said they went out after the service to talk and eat.
She was there. She has been with the family these last couple of days, Love said. We all know where she is. She is not missing.
Love's statement is a contradiction to what a spokesperson for the family admitted to The Daily Beast on Sunday. The spokesperson said there was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina's whereabouts on Saturday night, but that the teen needed some time alone and that she is going through a very hard time as you can expect.
Whitney Houston died on Feb. 11 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. She was 48 years old. A cause of death has not been released and the results of toxicology tests may be known in six to eight weeks.
