A member of Bobbi Kristina’s family has taken a surreptitious deathbed photo of the 22-year-old, and is shopping it to media outlets. Unsurprisingly, the rest of Bobbi Kristina’s family is livid, and determined to uncover the culprit.
Reports of the secret photo surfaced yesterday, when several sources, each of whom said they had been approached about purchasing the photo, came forward to report its existence.
Entertainment Tonight, for example, cried “Shame!” as it confirmed the existence of the Bobbi Kristina deathbed photo. ET said it could verify that the photo was of Bobbi Kristina, that it had been taken from inside Bobbi Kristina’s room at Peachtree Christian Hospice–and that the family member who took the photograph was asking $100,000 for the rights to publish it.
And TMZ offered a minimal description of the photo itself, saying “It was taken earlier this week at the facility outside of Atlanta. A woman is hovering over Bobbi Kristina in the photo … we’re told it’s a family member.”
Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah Brown, who has been one of the most outspoken members of the extended family during the entire Bobbi Kristina ordeal, yesterday shared on Facebook a tirade in response to the news. Leolah promised to make everyone who’s had access to Bobbi Kristina’s room take a lie detector test in order to prove their innocence. Here’s an excerpt from the lengthy post, which you can read in full here:
I’ll tell you what! You took that picture thinking you gon get some money for it…and thats gon be it! …guess what!????!!!! I will myself if no one else does-see to it that -YOU be revealed!!!! Trust me! I will put the fire so far up the medias ass to reveal who they PAID for that! AND I WILL MAKE SURE THAT ANYONE WHO CAME ANYWHERE NEAR BOBBI KRISS- INCLUDING MYSELF TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST! OH YEAH! WE GON GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS! IT AINT OVER! EVERY ONE OF YOU ALL WILL TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST!! AND NOT BY YOUR PEOPLE EITHER! YOU AINT GON BE ABLE TO PAY PEOPLE OFF ON THIS ONE! YOU will not do to my niece what YOU did to Whitney! Everyone knows who YOU ARE!
Despite Leolah’s suggestion, it would appear that no one has yet purchased the Bobbi Kristina deathbed photo.
