Actor-director-writer Tyler Perry visited Bobbi Kristina Brown when she was in the hospital and in hospice. He gave her a role in ‘The Tyler Perry Show’ a few years ago and has been a vocal support since Whitney Houston died. Yesterday he broke his silence about her passing as her funeral plans were announced.
Tyler’s tweet said it all:
I’m a writer with no words…. Bobbi Kris.

Sometimes there are no words. A couple of weeks ago he put up a Facebook post. Here’s how it started:
This morning I woke up with Whitney on my mind. I couldn’t help but think about all that she must have dreamed for her child. I know this was not her dream…
This makes me want to cry. We all know he’s right; this is not what Whitney would have wanted for her daughter. Tyler also asked people to be respectful while Bobbi Kristina was dying. Tyler was her champion to the end.
Yesterday it was announced that Bobbi Kristina’s funeral in Georgia would be held on Saturday morning at St. James United Methodist Church at 11 a.m. She will be buried next to her mother in New Jersey on Monday. Both services will be private.
On the legal front, the Georgia DA is said to be planning manslaughter charges against Nick Gordon. The Medical Examiner’s Investigation did not find any evidence of foul play in her death, but given that Bobbi Kristina survived for six months after the incident, physical injuries (like the unexplained bruising on her face) would have had plenty of time to heal. The DA reportedly plans to argue that Nick procured drugs for Bobbi Kristina on the morning of her death, knowing she would overindulge, and yet still left her in harm’s way.
They reportedly plan to rely on the testimony of the other person in the condo that morning, Max Lomas, who’s currently being charged on two drug-related felony cases (that don’t involve Bobbi Kristina). They’re prepared to offer him a plea deal for those cases and immunity in the Bobbi Kristina case in return for his testimony. One of Nick’s attorney, Jose Baez, is claiming that Bobbi Kristina had a history of falling asleep in bathtubs while intoxicated. He’s alleging that she did so the night before Whitney died, flooding the hotel room, so we’re getting a sense of what his defense will be.
This whole thing is just so sad.
