Today marked the one year anniversary of Bobbi Kristina’s death, Whitney Houston and Bobby Houston’s daughter. If you all don’t recall this was a hard loss for many people in the industry as the death of her mother was. Bobby died just like her mother and was found face first unconscious in a tub. What a way to go out, huh?
We read stories like this of people in the limelight such as celebrities and think, “how could this actually be, right?” We are puzzled and baffled at the fact that some people who seem to have it all in life could still build up the courage to kill themselves.
Even though the public did know of the issues that Whitney went through with her husband Bobby they seemed to overshadow what that and the effects that the industry ultimately had on her as a person.
Bobby must have had it bad if she had to grow up seeing such a toxic relationship between her mother and father. I could only imagine what was going through her head the night that she decided suicide was the answer.
Rest in peace Bobby!
