I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of "For Better Or Worse". NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed taping the season.
After Whitney's funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into "For Better Or Worse". I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother's death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the safety and privacy of people that care.
Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the actng or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother. And being someone who knows about losing their mother, I know grief comes in different ways and you never know when it's going to hit you or how it's going to hit you, for that matter. Some days you're smiling and happy and some days you’re so broken that you can't stop crying. So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.
So please... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.

    You are absolutely right Tyler, everyboddy should leave this baby alone. Is it not bad enough that her mom was tormented by the media? Poor Krissi did not ask for all this negativity and lies about her or her late mom. Bobbi Kris I hope you feel my love for your mom and you all the way from johannesburg, South Africa. Good looking out Mr Tyler, good loooking out.

    Hi Tyler! I agree! You said that Beautifully!! Bobby Kristina is a lovely young lady, the ora of God & her Mom Whitney Houston is all over her. I love you for standing in the gap with such love & support for her at this critical time. People?!! You are amazing!! Thank you for NEVER changing who you are... & SO WHAT if she walked off the stage, who's buisness is it anyway!! You are such a good man Tyler, with such a loving heart. I love you!! & don't stop, keep being there for our Bobby Kristina. Love you!! Jennifer J <:><

    Nicely said and much needed. People don't know when to just stop. The things that they are saying and doing is so crazy that I don't know anyone who stand it. Bobbi Kris is a strong person and she has her mother's spirit and humbled persona. I am so glad that someone spoke up, finally.

    I totally agree, believe me, but I'm not going to sugarcoat, so let's be real here. From yours and many other Celebrities experiences with such craziness that I've been noticing for the past years, you know that if she's going to start being in the spotlight/Celeb World, with your help, she better start getting ready for all kinds of rumors, ugly-cold-hearted spirited people's attitude, evil/hell headed her way. Because again, from all I've been observing, you people can talk, argue/fight until purple in the face(yes, purple), those fools are not going to stop/don't give a d*** and enjoy every bit of tormenting you people. So it's either she stay out of the spotlight like been doing before her mom died or deal with it the best way she can, because you're not going to always be there to have her back. Heck, you're still constantly fighting for your own. Also, why did you wait until after her mother's death to question/grant her dreams/goals whom by the way have no acting experience and why didn't you wait until she was 18 or older? Like you've stated, she's a baby/17 right? And though it's late, but, why wasn't Whitney in any of your movies? I don't know Tyler, what you're doing is nice but for some reason and though it doesn't matter, my heart/stomach don't feel right about it. Plus I don't think you would have ever done it for any non-acting grieving child outside of the Celeb World. I say this because so far you haven't done it yet/for the past years. Yeah. Anyway, sometimes when you think you're helping someone, you're really not, but time will tell. Get mad all you want to, Iown curr. Not angry, just keeping it real with you, so pardon that this is not one of those "Kiss Your B*** Like Most Post". I am not the one. Oh by the way, I won't be watching For Better Or Worse as long as she's on there. Something that you and many others will never understand. You have a lovely Mr. Perry Werry.....mmuah.

      Just because I admire some of the things you do, doesn't mean I have to/will agree with everything you say/do. I'm not "StarStruck nor am I/never been a fan of yours or any other Celebrities I admire/admired. Sowwy, not trying be accepted/liked. Now, if read/have a comment about this post Tyler(I said Tyler, the heck what the rest think/say), at least make it a direct not indirect one towards me mmk. Thaaanks. Don't be scurred, lol. Huuggzeez.

      It's unfortunate that people thrive on negativity. Especially when it comes to death of celebrities. Bobbi Kristina is trying hard to move on with her life without her mother. This is one of the most difficult time for her life and the media as well as those who enjoy spreading rumors, and making it hard for her to cope with the stress of lossing her mother. I say to Bobbi Kristina, stay strong. Stay positive and keep your head up. Focus on what makes you happy. Let no man, women, boy or girl determine your happiness. Just remember this too will pass!

  • Coinci Dence

    Thank you Mr. Perry for your wonderful comments about Bobbi Kristina! I pray your heartfelt comments and humility serve you well. Especially since one of my favorite lines in your selection of movies is the one where Madea’s exiting the court and we hear a mockery of Whitney Houston in the background screaming “Bobbyyyy!”

  • Leah Marie portland oregon

  • Ronda warner robins ga

  • Kina Charlotte, NC

  • Ludella Lewis United States

    Thank you for speaking on the behalf of this child. Can't believe people can be that cruel to someone who just lost a love one.
