Bobbi Kristina family drama heats up

As Bobbi Kristina Brown remains hospitalized at Emory following a Jan. 31 medical emergency, some members of her family have escalated their virtual squabbling.


"Where was y'all when them (expletive) Houstons put cameras all in her face three months after her mother was in the ground," her cousin Jerod Brown posted Monday, apparently a reference to the short-lived reality show "Houstons: On Our Own."

He capped his tweet, which disparaged Bobbi Kristina's relatives' pleas for privacy, with the hashtag .

Last week  Bobby Brown's attorney issued a statement last week saying "it is requested that the media cease speaking with unauthorized members of the family. The statement went on to specifically blast Jerod Brown, saying "He must be disregarded."

Jerod Brown has kept his social media platforms full of pictures of his cousin and pleas for prayers, but the family evidently disapproved of his plan to hold a "meet and greet with fans."

"This is a criminal investigation and we do not need this side show," the statement said.

Jerod Brown also posted a message earlier this month saying Bobbi Kristina's doctors "don't see any hope for change." Bobby Brown responded with a statement blasting "false" reports regarding his daughter's condition:

“If we issued a statement every time the media published a false report regarding this matter, that’s all we would be doing 24 hours a day. This is false, just as is the vast majority of the other reporting that is currently taking place.”

Both sides of Bobbi Kristina's family have issued statements asking for privacy.
