Bobby Brown’s early departure from Whitney Houston’s funeral yesterday put the tensions in the Houston household on display for the entire world to see. What everyone really wants to know is how does Bobbi Kristina feel. Inside Edition spoke with Bobbi Kriss’ ex boyfriend and he gave some insight on the complicated relationship between Bobbi Kris and her mom.
Zach Jafarzadeh dated Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, for more than two years. He spent many hours at the Houston’s mansion in Atlanta.
On Bobbi Kriss and Whitney’s Relationship:
“There was a power struggle at that household, Bobbi Kristina loved her mother dearly but they would have major blowups. They would fight, they almost felt like they were sisters.
What would they fight over?
“Anything. If there wasn’t milk in the refrigerator or something. There would be an outburst.”
On How Obvious Whitney’s drug use was
“Everybody knows Whitney had a drug struggle. She had a hard time with drugs and it was obvious in the house that that was happening. There would be days when she was extremely ecstatic, happy, being outgoing having a good time, and next day, sad and down, on the couch watching TV all day.”
On the role reversal between Bobbi Kriss and Whitney
“Krissi was the parent sometimes. She always looked out for her mom. Anything that was going on with her mom, if her mom felt sick, was down for the day, Krissi would comfort her mom, talk to her, try to get her to go out,” said Jafarzadeh.
Bobbi Kristina herself hit the headlines last year when the National Enquirer showed photos of her reportedly doing cocaine. If she continues with this habit, Bobbi looks like she is going to need drug addiction rehabilitation in the future.
Jafarzadeh admits he leaked the photos to the Enquirer and now regrets that decision.
“I wish I had never done it. If I could say anything to Krissi, I would say, ‘I am so sorry for any stress I caused her.’ ”
Jafarzadeh says Houston allowed her teenage daughter to drink booze.
“She’d rather have Krissi at the house drinking, than out partying and drinking, getting in trouble,” said Jafarzadeh. If she had let Bobbi Kristina go out and do what she wanted to, I think it would have been a lot worse.”
Jafarzadeh says he knows the heartache his ex-girlfriend is going through now after losing her mom.
Did Bobbi Kriss want to be like her mom?
“Yeah, of course. She looked up to her mom so much, her mom was huge, she was the best, she had so much personality. They really had a very extremely close relationship. Krissi needs her right now,” said Jafarzadeh.
