Friends and family “held an intervention recently” for Bobbi Kristina Brown, an insider tells Star magazine, as Whitney Houston‘s 19-year-old daughter has continued getting drunk, smoking marijuana and popping prescription pills in the wake of her mother’s shocking death.
“Everyone is worried sick about Krissy … her aunt Pat got a number of her friends and family to come to Atlanta and have a serious talk with her about her sobriety,” the source tells Star. “There were lots of tears, but Bobbi Kristina didn’t listen.”
Exhausting all options, the family has even turned to Whitney’s longtime professional patron, music producer Clive Davis, to dangle a career carrot over the head of Bobbi Kristina, an aspiring singer to try to encourage her to get her act together.
“Clive keeps telling Bobbi she needs to go to rehab, and that if she does, he’ll help launch her music career,” the source tells Star. “He’s doing everything he can.”
“It comes in waves: One moment I can be happy and laughing, but then it comes over me,” she told Oprah. “Sometimes, it’s so surreal. I still walk into the house like, ‘Mom?’ But I’ve accepted it.”
