Bobbi Kristina shocked Instagram followers this week sharing a blurry picture of her smoking out of a pipe.
“This picture may be inappropriate but I want to make a connection with you all. Don’t worry this picture isn’t recent just hear me out. Do you know what I feel? I feel strange I can’t feel any pain anymore,” the 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown said.
Although the picture appears to be the same one that circulated more than two years ago, Bobbi Kristina said she only quit drugs “as of recently.” She added, “Things just happened. But then there is some situation that force me to do things and the impact I’ll feel pain. I did and I do. I was hurt.”
Bobbi Kristina, who was 18 when her mom died from a drug overdose, went on to say she struggles to live up to others’ expectations: “But I can’t. I have lost my sense. It just happened. Then here we go again I’m in the same pain. I’m hurt. I’m trying to. I really do. But I know that I’m hurt and in pain but I can feel it but I don’t know what it is. What do I really do? God, Help me ignore and rebuke what these demons are saying, in Jesus Name. Amen.”

Bobbi Kristina has long been rumored to be a drug user. That is obviously a big concern for her family, especially for Whitney’s mom, Cissy Houston.
“Cissy and others won’t admit out loud that Bobbi Kristina has a drug problem,” a family friend told The Daily Beast shortly after Whitney’s death. “But they know it and have been trying to keep her straight even before Whitney passed.”
Cissy and Bobbi Kristina later had a falling out in early 2013 after Cissy published “Remembering Whitney,” which Bobbi Kristina criticized as “disrespectful.” Cissy later penned an open letter to her granddaughter, encouraging Bobbi Kristina to think twice about getting married. It seems Bobbi Kristina disregarded that advice, because she wed Nick Gordon last winter.
Now seems like a good time for Cissy to reach out again.
