La'Princia claims she began to notice her sister's wild behavior and craving for booze the following year, when Bobbi Kristina accompanied her to Massachusetts for a Christmas celebration.  "She brought Everclear with her to my house, which is this really high grade of grain alcohol, basically like moonshine," she writes.

La'Princia immediately became suspicious of her sister's relationship with rehab-alum and alleged beater Nick Gordon, now 20, who was sued years later by Bobbi Kristina's estate for wrongful death. "I remember wondering why she was hanging out with a guy with a mustache and beard who looked like a grown man," she says.
