Whitney Houston’s loved ones want to see her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, in rehab, TMZ reports. The paparazzi site’s sources say the almost-20-year-old has been dealing with substance abuse for three or four years now, and the singer’s relatives don’t want her to end up like her mother.
The family reportedly wants her in a live-in 60-day treatment program. But they’re said to be holding off on pressuring her, since they want her to have time to mourn her mother’s sudden passing.
A fellow mourner at Saturday’s emotional service for Whitney told People that Bobbi Kristina “broke down” during the service, but got through it “pretty good, all considering.” Let’s hope she gets the support she needs.
Some parents tell their kids, “Do as I say, not as I do.” Mark Wahlberg has put an interesting spin on that: In order to teach his children they shouldn’t get tattoos, he’s bringing them along to watch him get his removed.
“I don’t want my kids getting tattoos,” the actor said on “Today.”
Admitting he had “six or seven” tattoos, the father of four said, “I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through.”
Nick’s Health Troubles
Nick Cannon needs to slow down for the sake of his health, an insider confides to People magazine.
“He’s not doing so great,” says the source.
Admitting he was recently hospitalized for two blood clots in his lungs, the actor-singer announced Friday that he’ll give up his New York City-based radio show. He also hosts “America’s Got Talent.”
After undergoing treatment for kidney failure in January, says the source, the dad of twins with wife Mariah Carey didn’t take enough time to recuperate.
“He should have been recovered at this point,” the insider says.
