Summary
On January 31, 2015, Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of musical megastars Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta home. Harrowing rumors and accusations ensued, particularly around Bobbi Kristina's longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who has been a part of the family since Whitney took him in as a teenager. But #1 New York Times bestselling author and investigative journalist Ian Halperin takes the story much, much further--back to the early days of Whitney's career, exploring the devastating, self-destructive secrets that plagued the singer and led Whitney--and now her daughter--down a dark and dangerous road. Drawing on evidence from trusted Houston family members, friends, and other inside sources, Halperin paints a portrait of Bobbi Kristina's downward spiral following her mother's death, including drug abuse and abusive relationships. How did Bobbi Kristina end up facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub, almost exactly three years after her mother's mysterious death? What was her relationship with Nick Gordon really like? How did a childhood in the spotlight as the daughter of controversial pop royalty lead to her troubling fate? Halperin offers readers a fascinating and candid behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous world, personal demons, and never-before-told life of Bobbi Kristina Brown
