Bobby Brown ‘Heartbroken’ After Being Snubbed By Daughter Bobbi Kristina Over Thanksgiving

By Jon Boon - Radar Reporter

Families are supposed to get together over the holidays, but don’t expect Bobby Brown and his estranged daughter Bobbi Kristina to reconcile anytime soon for the festivities.

Because RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Bobbi Kristina, 19, snubbed an invite to Thanksgiving dinner at her troubled father’s California home.

Bobbi K’s latest snub has left the 43-year-old recovering alcoholic heartbroken and fearing his daughter will never accept him again.

"Bobby threw a huge Thanksgiving dinner for his family with the help of his wife Alicia at their Tarzana home," a source close to the Brown family told RadarOnline.com.

"But there was one person missing from the table – and that was Krissy.

"She was personally invited by Bobby, but she didn’t turn up, nor did she tell him she couldn’t come.

"It was a subdued dinner, with Bobby visibly disappointed that Krissy was a no show.

"He’s now wondering if he will ever be able to rebuild his relationship with Krissy ever again," the source divulged.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Bobby told family and friends that not having Bobbi K in his life has left him depressed and empty.

Those closest to the My Prerogative singer believe that was the catalyst for his downward spiral into alcohol addiction, which has contributed to his two DUI arrests this year.

"Bobby has been really down about his relationship with Bobbi Kristina for some time," a source close to the family revealed.

"It was certainly what started the ball rolling in terms of falling foul to his demons once again and he’s been hitting the bottle hard. Bobbi Kristina doesn’t want to talk to him, doesn’t want to meet up and it’s left Bobby feeling dead inside.

"He feels at a loose end because he hears of Bobbi Kristina’s problems and wants to help, but she just won’t listen to him.

"It’s left him believing he has failed her as a father," the source divulged.

Wendy Williams On Her Past Drug Use: ‘I Could Have Ended Up Like Whitney Houston’

By Amber Goodhand - Radar News Editor

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has made no secret of her past struggle with drugs, and it was the shocking death of Whitney Houston that prompted her to talk about her addiction on her national TV show, The Wendy Williams Show.

After struggling with a 10-year addiction to cocaine in her 20s, Wendy admits that when Whitney died in February there were far too many similarities in their lives to ignore, making her grateful for her journey to sobriety.

"That could have been me if I hadn't sobered up," Wendy said.

"Whitney and I are [about] the same age, we both come from New Jersey and from parents who love us; we both struggled to have a child. We never met, but we have an incredible amount in common. I thought at some point we would meet in a room and just hug. But we lost her."

PHOTOS: Stars Who OD'd

In a new interview with In Touch magazine, Wendy, 48, opens up about her drug use and what it took to get clean.

"I was a functioning addict. I'd work from 3 in the afternoon until 7 at night, get off and party until 7 in the morning -- then sleep until 2, go to the radio station and do it all over again," Wendy said.

PHOTOS: Hollywood Stars Who Have Gone To Rehab

"People around me knew, but nobody ever said anything to me. Nobody had the guts, which is shocking to me. I guess it was like watching a circus freak show."

Wendy credits meeting her husband around her 30th birthday and falling in love as one of the triggers that set her on the path to sobriety.

"The habit was not breaking me, so I could've gone on and on, except I was falling in love with this guy," Wendy said.

"I learned to just wean, wean, wean, and then finally stop. I didn't even have to go to rehab. I'm not bragging; it's just fact. I was never in the streets looking for a fix."

Wendy married Kevin Hunter in 1998 and the two have a 12-year-old son together, Kevin Hunter Jr.

Bobby Brown’s Latest DUI Arrest Could Be Blessing In Disguise, Says Family

By Jon Boon - Radar Reporter

Bobby Brown’s family is petrified that the troubled singer will end up in jail once again following his recent DUI arrest -- his second within the past year -- RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

However, they do believe some time behind bars could help the My Prerogative star finally conquer his demons, if he is placed on a strict mandatory rehabilitation program.

PHOTOS: Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon Attend The Houstons On Our Own Premiere Party

Brown’s family hope the R&B singer, 43, is ordered to complete 120 days of rehab, including counseling and attending AA meetings in a final bid to keep him sober.

“Bobby’s family are at their wits end following his latest arrest and are scared that the authorities will throw him in jail,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “They are not so sure he will be able to survive in jail given what they fear is his current mental state and are worried that he could come into harm while inside.

PHOTOS: Whitney Houston – A Life In Pictures

“But, despite their obvious fears, there is a silver lining that the family is clinging on to that jail could actually help Bobby. If he does have to serve time, he will be ordered to complete a strict drug rehabilitation program.

“They felt that when Bobby last went to rehab, he wasn’t serious about cleaning up his act and feared he would relapse.

“Plus, he didn’t spend a sufficient enough time in rehab. His family believes that if a judge orders him to complete a 120 day rehabilitation program along with counseling and asks him to regularly attend AA meetings he might finally be able to beat his addiction problems.

PHOTOS: Last Pictures Taken Of Whitney Houston Alive

“Bobby is in the last chance saloon now, it’s time he started to help himself,” the source divulged.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Brown was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI around 1 a.m. PT Wednesday in Los Angeles after officers observed his car swerving on the road.

Back in March, he suffered the same fate, just two months after the death of ex-wife Whitney Houston.

Following that arrest, Brown entered a rehab facility, as part of his plea deal, to seek help for his alcohol addiction.

But after just three weeks of treatment, Brown checked out and his family was concerned that he wasn’t taking sobriety seriously and could fall off the wagon once more.

“Bobby’s family and friends are terrified, despite his pleas that he’s sober, that he will fall off the wagon once again,” a source said at the time. “They’re not sure if he was ever serious about conquering his demons and have voiced their concerns. It’s difficult to believe someone going into rehab for alcohol addiction for such a short time is genuine about giving up drinking.”

Houston Family Feud Deepens! Cissy Snubbed Tribute To Daughter Whitney Because Of Bobbi Kristina!

By Radar Staff

Houston we have a problem!

The mother of the late Whitney Houston was so enraged with Bobbi Kristina Brown’s plans to wed “adopted brother" Nick Gordon she snubbed a star-studded tribute for the I Will Always Love You singer, the National Enquirer claims.

Cissy Houston, 79, refused to attend the Grammys’ Final salute for Whitney on October 11 at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre because Bobbi Kristina and Nick were scheduled to attend.

PHOTOS: Last Pictures Taken Of Whitney Houston Alive

“Cissy really wanted to be there for Whitney,” revealed a source close to the family.

“But she’s just too angry with Bobbi Kristina right now. Cissy and her oldest son Gary couldn’t stomach sitting next to Bobbi Kristina and Nick.”

The rumor mill has been in overdrive with reports claiming that Bobbi Kristina and Nick are engaged.

PHOTOS: Whitney Houston – A Life In Pictures

And in a promo clip from Lifetime’s new reality show The Houstons: On Our Own, Bobbi Kristina is seen announcing to family members: “We’re engaged!”

Despite that, her rep has denied the claims, adding: “You have to watch the show!”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the couple sprung into action to help a heart attack victim near Atlanta last Saturday.

The two were standing at an ATM in a mall parking lot in suburban Roswell, Georgia when they were flagged down by a distraught driver whose family member appeared to be having a heart attack.

The pair raced to the car, and Nick pulled the gravely ill man out of the vehicle, placing him on the ground.

Bobbi Kristina elevated his legs in a move to help blood flow to his brain. The young couple, clearly distressed, stayed with the man and his family until paramedics arrived.

For the full story on the ever deepening Houston family feud, pick up the new issue of the National Enquirer -- on sale Thursday.

Stephen Colbert On His Father And Brothers’ Tragic Death: Grief Is Just As Keen Four Decades On

By Alexis Tereszcuk - Radar Entertainment Editor

Stephen Colbert’s witty sense of humor has carried him to the top of the ratings chart with his Comedy Central television show, but in a new interview with Playboy magazine he gets serious as he opens up about the grief he still feels over the tragic death of his father and brothers.

The three were killed in a plane crash in 1974 when Stephen was just 10, and he explained to Eric Spitznagel how he made sense of their deaths.

“Things didn’t seem that important anymore. Nothing seemed that important anymore. My mother said to me -- and I think she said this to all my brothers and sisters -- she urged me to look at everything in the light of eternity. In other words, it doesn’t matter what I wear. I just wear the uniform of my youth. I wear an oxford-cloth shirt and khakis. What does it matter? What does it matter what I wear?”

PHOTOS: Whitney Houston Through The Years

Stephen said that advice from his mother helped him, but that even though it has been almost four decades since their death the grief has not dissipated.

“It’s not as keen,” he explained. “Well, it’s not as present, how about that? It’s just as keen but not as present. But it will always accept the invitation. Grief will always accept the invitation to appear. It’s got plenty of time for you.”

Eric said: “I’ll be here,” and Stephen agreed with him.

PHOTOS: Last Pictures Taken Of Whitney Houston Alive

“That’s right. 'I’ll be here when you need me.' The interesting thing about grief, I think, is that it is its own size. It is not the size of you. It is its own size. And grief comes to you. You know what I mean?

"I’ve always liked that phrase He was visited by grief, because that’s really what it is. Grief is its own thing. It’s not like it’s in me, and I’m going to deal with it. It’s a thing, and you have to be okay with its presence. If you try to ignore it, it will be like a wolf at your door.

For more details of Stephen’s interview pick up the latest issue of Playboy -- on newsstands Friday, October 19.

I Was Bullied Too! Lindsay Lohan Claims Harsh Treatment From Real Life Mean Girls At School

By Radar Staff

She may have played one of the Mean Girls in a movie, but Lindsay Lohan claims she was actually the victim of them as a schoolgirl.

After watching a moving segment about bullied homecoming queen Whitney Kropp on Katie Couric’s new talk show, the controversial actress took to her Twitter this week to reveal her own bullying story, and RadarOnline.com has the details.

PHOTOS: Lindsay Lohan Through The Years

"@katiecouric I think what you did today on your show for Whitney Kropp was lovely," she tweeted to the talk show host on Tuesday (though the tweets have since been removed from her account, The Huffington Post has retrieved the screen grabs.) "It had me crying. I'd love to meet her. Stop bullying."

She continued to sound off to Couric in a series of tweets.

"I was actually bullied at my public school when I would leave to film. Whenever I came back . . . girls and boys would call me names.”

Lohan also claims that people made fun of her because her father, Michael Lohan, was in jail.

"They would also mock me because of my home situation. When people found out that my father was in jail . . . they would yell things, try to trip me and more . . . I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while."

"So I can relate to the girls that you spoke with on your show today. I appreciate you reaching out to them. XO."

Bobbi Kristina Estranged From Grandma & Dad, Angry Over Court Action To Curtail Allowance

By Jen Heger - Radar Assistant Managing Editor

Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is angry at her grandmother, Cissy, for filing legal docs requesting that the payment schedule to the 19-year-old be changed, as they fear the teenager is under the "undue influence" of unsavory people, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

"Bobbi is extremely angry at her grandmother for filing legal docs asserting that she is essentially hanging around with losers and users,"  a source close to the situation tells Radar. "Cissy has made it known that she is extremely unhappy with the presence of Nick Gordon, Bobbi's 'boyfriend/brother' in her granddaughter's life. Right now Bobbi has absolutely no contact with her, Cissy or her aunt, Pat Houston. If Bobbi has concerns about payments from her mom's estate, she calls her lawyer."

PHOTOS: Last Pictures Taken Of Whitney Houston Alive

As previously reported, the trustees of Whitney's estate filed docs in Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta, and state that Bobbi Kristina "is a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent's resources and celebrity."

The trustees are concerned because the schedule of distribution from Whitney's estate would conflict with her "intent to provide long-term financial security and protection for her child. Compliance with the provisions of the trust would defeat or substantially impair the accomplishment of the purposes of the trust, which were to provide for the proper maintenance and comfort of the respondent, and to prevent the wasting of trust assets, as evidenced by the trust's spend thrift provision," the petition states.

PHOTOS: Whitney Houston – A Life In Pictures

Bobbi's father Bobby Brown recently entered rehab after an extended period of boozing in reaction to Whitney's death, and is currently estranged from his talented teen daughter.

Bobbi Kristina is the sole beneficiary of Whitney's estate. Houston died on February 11 after she was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The coroner determined that Houston died of an accidental drowning.

"It's truly sad, Bobbi Kris is truly on her own right now, and has no contact with her father, or Whitney's family. Cissy is just heartbroken about it, but knows there is very little she can do about it," the insider says.

Bobbi Kristina is currently filming her reality show The Houston Family Chronicles, which debuts later this year.

Whitney Houston Estate Concerned About Payments To Bobbi Kristina, Fear She’s Under ‘Undue Influence’

By Jen Heger - Radar Assistant Managing Editor

The trustees of Whitney Houston's estate, including the late singer's mother, Cissy, have filed legal docs requesting that the payment schedule to Bobbi Kristina be changed as they fear the 19-year-old is under the "undue influence" of unsavory people.

As previously reported, Bobbi Kristina and her "brother boyfriend" Nick Gordon walked the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of Sparkle recently and both were sporting new tattoos on their wrists - "WH" surrounded by doves.

Bullied Teen Whitney Kropp Triumphs Over Tormentors At Homecoming Game

By Radar Staff

Just weeks ago, 16-year-old Michigan sophomore Whitney Kropp was feeling miserable after bullies at her high school elected her to the homecoming court – not because she was part of the popular crowd - but as a cruel prank.

And after receiving nationwide support, the teen held her head high as she courageously walked out on the field during the homecoming football game at Ogemaw Heights High School on Friday to accept the honor.

More than 1,000 people turned up to support Whitney who has seen local businesses in her town rally to her support to provide her with her dress, a new hair style, professional photos, free dinner and a manicure and make-up to get her glammed up for the occasion.

“The kids that are bullying you, do not let them bring you down,” she told the crowd during half-time. “Stand up for what you believe in and go with your heart and go with your gut.”

PHOTOS: Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

“I’m so happy. It’s just so much right now for me. I had thoughts about not coming but I actually changed my mind and came out. I just thought maybe I wouldn’t have fun. But I’m having a lot of fun right now.”

Whitney was driven around the track in the back of a pickup along with the rest of the homecoming court and the stadium erupted when she drove by with sophomore Josh Awrey who had initially dropped out but then jumped back on board to support her.

A Support Whitney Kropp Facebook page has already received 117,000 “likes.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Whitney’s mom Bernice Kropp said she was angry when she found her daughter heart-broken and sobbing after being ridiculed “at school and on Facebook” but feels good her daughter is now getting so much love.

Bullied Teen Turns Homecoming Heroine After Cruel Prank Backfires

By Debbie Emery - Radar Reporter

A bullied teenager who was tormented by her high school classmates was shocked to learn that she had been voted onto the homecoming court, but her delight at the good news quickly turned to humiliation when she learned it was a cruel prank.

Whitney Kropp, 16, of West Branch, Michigan, was the object of such disdain by fellow students that they thought it would be hilarious to nominate the unpopular girl for the popularity contest, reported the Detroit News, but they never expected the tables to be turned on them.

Rather than ending up as a Carrie-like horror story, Whitney is experiencing a fairy-tale ending after residents of the tiny farm town have rallied behind her and supported the unlikely bid.

"I thought I wasn't worthy," said Kropp, who was laughed and pointed at in hallways after her name was put forward. "I was this big old joke -  I thought why even be a part of this world if I am just going to be tossed around like trash."

PHOTOS: Hollywood's Most Charitable Stars

Now with the homecoming dance just days away, local businesses are plying her with free perks including dinner, professional photos, manicures and make-up, and even a glamourous gown, shoes and tiara!

During the homecoming game on Friday, residents will fill the football stadium of Ogemaw Heights High wearing Whitney's favorite color of orange and tee-shirts pledging their support.

PHOTOS: Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

"I never thought I would be part of it," she told NBC's TODAY. "Really it is just for the big popular people."

The celebration is a remarkable sign of good karma for the lonely teen who for years has been either mocked, emotionally tortured or simply ignored by her classmates until her name was called out during geometry class announcing she had been voted in to the court with the rest of the popular kids.

PHOTOS: Angelina Jolie’s Awkward Teenage Years

With her dyed hair and black goth-like outfits, Whitney never fit in with the other youngsters in the sleepy rural town, who took the stance of hurting anyone who dared to stand out.

Described as "soft-hearted" and "not having a mean bone in her body," by her family, she was excited when she heard about the nomination – even when football star and other sophomore rep, Josh Awrey dropped out. "In the Homecoming Court! :) Little nervous but this is going to be fun," she wrote on her Facebook page, which elicited a string of coy replies from bitchy classmates.

PHOTOS: Child Star Survivors

That night though she was found heart-broken and crying by her mother, Bernice Kropp, as she sobbed that she didn't want to do it. 

"She was getting ridiculed in school and on Facebook," said the concerned parent, who along with other family members persuaded Whitney to go to homecoming and prove to the bullies that she is better than they are.

PHOTOS: Celebrity Death Threats

"Im a beautiful person and you shouldn't mess with me!" the girl, who was once kicked with steel-toed boots, later wrote defiantly on her timeline.

A Facebook page that has been created to back her has already garnered more than 67,000 "likes," as a slew of well-wishers have come out to share their own bullying experiences.

PHOTOS: Celebrity Racist Rants

"You want to protect your kid, and you feel angry and mad at what has happened, but at the same time the outpouring to help her has been beyond expected," revealed her proud mom.

Instead of an arrogant jock, Whitney will be attending the dance with her boyfriend, "who has been very quiet and supportive through all of this," on her arm.

"I'm excited to go as I can prove everyone wrong and show I am not this joke that you guys thought of," she vowed.
