New information on Bobbi Kristina Brown emerges
It has been two weeks since Whitney Houston’s daughter’s drowning incident, and according to her aunt, Leolah Brown, Bobbie Kristina Brown is doing “well” despite rumors that she might be taken off life support.
"There are so many signs showing us that she will be OK, in spite of what people are saying over the Internet,” said Leolah in an interview with Atlanta’s Fox 5 news station. “Krissi is fine, as I sit here today.”
Leolah also adds that Bobbi Kristina has opened her eyes.
While information on Bobbi Kristina’s health continues to surface, the reason behind the event remains a mystery.
Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina’s fiancé, has lawyered up after police began to question his involvement. Gordon has yet to visit Bobbi Kristina in the hospital, but his legal team said he is currently not allowed to see her.
“Mr. Gordon's only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina. He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon,” said attorney Randy Kessler in a statement.
It was reported that there were suspicious injuries on Bobbi Kristina’s face. And just days before the bathtub situation, a concerned neighbor place a 9-1-1 call that said they witnessed a domestic violence dispute on Bobbi Kristina’s front lawn.
The neighbor did not see who was involved in the altercation.
Fifty shades of controversy
In a Pennsylvania middle school, some parents remain unhappy after their kids got their hands on a not-so-kid-friendly word search puzzle, according to Action 4 News in Pittsburgh.
The word search contained terms associated with the erotic book turned movie, “50 Shades of Grey.”
Even having the R-rated puzzle on school grounds has been enough to send parents after the school board. An internal investigation is in progress.
Not everyone has the same opinion when it comes to who can view the explicit material.
France has just cleared their nation’s 12-year-olds to go see the film according to an article in the Independent. That’s right, children the age of American middle school students will be allowed to view the controversial movie.
Malaysia banned the film completely and the United Kingdom and America have restricted the film to those over the age of 18 and 17 respectively.
