Bobbi Kristina Brown is reportedly struggling to cope following her mother Whitney Houston's death.
The 19-year-old daughter of legendary soul diva Whitney and American rap star Bobbi Brown has apparently not shown signs she is getting over her loss following her mother's death in February this year.
Bobbi Kristina recently got engaged to Nick Gordon - who was raised as her brother, although Whitney never officially adopted him - a shocking move which she quickly followed by breaking things off.
Industry insiders have commented on her behaviour, claiming it is to be expected when judged alongside the life her mother led.
"Bobbi is a sweet but sad little thing. She grew up never knowing what state her mum was going to be in, but she loved her with a passion because, to her, she was this amazing princess," a source has revealed to British magazine Grazia.
"It was no wonder she wanted to marry Nick. He understands everything she's been through because he's known it too."
The source added that despite Bobbi Kristina's start in life being plagued by unstable events, there is still hope she will blossom into a strong young woman.
"Whitney was a good girl gone bad, but for Bobbi, most of what she's known is bad, so there's always the chance she'll go the other way," the insider finished.
Whitney famously battled drug addiction throughout her life.
