Bobbi Kristina Brown had “disappeared” for a time and was found “using drugs,” two sources have told The Daily Beast.
Her family didn’t find her until Sunday morning, just before they were to leave for Whitney‘s burial, the sources added.
According to The Daily Beast, Bobbi’s family, including Houston’s mother, Gospel great Cissy Houston, were “in full panic mode” when they lost sight of the 18-year-old for a few hours as Houston’s body was set to be transported to the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J., for burial Sunday morning.
“Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell,” said one source, a longtime family friend. “It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. Ms. Cissy [Houston, Whitney’s mother] was beside herself.”
Allegedly, Bobbi slipped away to do drugs in her hotel room while the family and friends of the 48-year-old pop icon convened at a local eatery in Newark, N.J., to remember Whitney.
Even before the funeral was held Saturday, the family had serious discussions about Bobbi Kristina entering into rehab as soon as her mother was laid to rest, according to multiple sources familiar with the conversations. They say she spent the night after her mother’s death using drugs to dull the pain.
Bobbi Kristina entered rehab for a drug problem early last year, says one of the family friends who spoke to The Daily Beast, a longtime associate of the family. (The Houston family spokesperson would not comment on this matter.)
