Bobbi Kristina Walks Quits Tyler Perry Gig Because She Is Still Mourning Mother’s Death
Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has walked off her new TV show, Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse. Still dealing with the death of her superstar mother, Bobbi Kristina quit the TBS comedy last week, sources close to the production tell RadarOnline.com exclusively. It was a fast exit for the troubled teen, who filmed only a few episodes of the show, which is scheduled to air its second season in July.
Her recurring role was announced less than a month ago. “She thought she was ready for this, but she wasn’t,” one source told RadarOnline.com. The insider added that when Bobbi, 19, walked off the set she did it so quietly that barely anyone noticed, even though she dissolved into tears. Bobbi Kristina is still filming her reality TV show for Lifetime, which the source says is less taxing on her and also features other members of Whitney’s extended family. But her departure from Perry’s show has thrown it into a chaotic state, forcing rewrites to explain the exit of her character. Perry, says the source, is unhappy about having to deal with the situation but still fully supportive of Bobbi. Perry spoke at Houston’s funeral.
“Bobbi Kristina had a private breakdown and barely anyone saw it,” the source said. “She was crying and said she needed a minute, she needed a break to get herself together. But then she decided she couldn’t handle doing the show right now. She’s still mourning her mom. She is confused right now,” another source told RadarOnline.com. “She is not prepared to live without her mom.”
Awwww, we hope Bobbi Kris can get it together.
