With the shocking news about Bobbi Kristina, its just brought back alot of memories of what celebrity kids go through daily in the press.
Bobbi Kristina, 22 was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home and was whisked off to hospital. Reports indicate she has been placed in a medically induced coma to relive pressure from her brain.
It is indeed a sad incident, as i believe Bobbi Kristina has been through alot in her short life. Born to Whitney Houston one of the most popular singers in the world, and Bobby Brown also known a very popular singer and (un)reformed bad boy, thats certainly alot of pressure.

Living with parents who had a stormy marriage with a mix of allegations of physical abuse, drugs, financial instability and infidelity, that's a recipe for disaster. Whitney's tragic death also could not have been easy for Bobbi Kristina. i know all mothers love their children, but there was such a deep bond between both of them. With the press hounding her continously after Whitney's passing, especially on the "incest issue", her life all of a sudden had become a re-enactment of her mothers. Her husband, who Whitney took as a son was never legally adopted. I don't see anything wrong if Bobbi Kristina turned to someone she trusted for comfort rather than risk being with an opportunist.

At the end of the day, she is a young child whose life and struggles was suddenly splashed out onto the pages of tabloids, including her battles in er family which were definitely not helped by the Whitney biopic movie (which i must add, the Houston family were totally against) Currently, no evidence of drugs have been found to be involved in the sad incident.

I remember an awards ceremony in the 90s, where Whitney had won an award. Her date to the even was her daughter Bobbi Kristina, co-incidentally it was her 5th birthday. Whitney's acceptance speech was a happy birthday song to her daughter in typical Whitney style, with the mini Bobby Brown, watching shyly from her seat with all cameras on her. It was a beautiful moment. You could feel the love Whitney had for her daughter.

While alot of us are hoping Bobbi Kristina pulls through this, to some people in the media its business as usual. I truly hope we can give the family some space to get through this terrible time. It reminds me of all the attention on Michael jackson's kids which resulted in Paris trying to kill herself. While we are fascinated by the lives of these young rich kids, we should also remember, at the end of the day, they are still children.

Here is wishing Bobbi Kristina a speedy recovery. And please say a prayer if you can.
