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.

    Mr. Perry, you couldn't have said it better. It's just so sad. I lost my grandmother 4 years ago right before Mother's Day and at times I still cry! It's just something that you can't just get over. Its sad that this is what makes the media money! You are a great inspiration to us all! God bless you for being such a positive person/role model.

    Awww. In your usual kind way you have nade a fine plea. Its truly hard to lose someone. I lost my husband less than 3 yrs ago and its still not right in my life. I still find myself asking is this ever going to go away, but it gets a little easier with time. Its so nice to see a person that is so full of heart. Its costs nothing to reach out and love and care. Its costs much to tear down. Even your own soul. Thank you for being so consistent with that heart! :)

    You said it all Tyler, out of the mouth of Madea. We live in a world of such complicated people, who will tell as lie as well as they eat their dinner. My prayers go out to Krissi and know this daughter: THE ONLY THING THAT PREVAILS IS THE TRUTH. So you go right on with your life and allow Gods Grace to flourish. Love you Jaime

    I agree, let her be. She is going to make mistakes, we all do in life. Prayer for her.

    Wow, I couldn't have said it any better, she needs positive people in her life to help her get pass the hurt. She's in my prayer. God bless you Mr perry for being their for her.

    Hi Tyler, I knew you were referring to her when I read the title. I am so glad someone is standing up for this child. Its a shame that they are too selfish to allow this child to grieve. I am glad that she has people outside of her immediate family to turn to. Because sometimes your immediate family is grieving as well and its good to just get away with someone else that will just be there for you. Thank you for covering her and defending her.

    I agree. Since they can't walk in her shoes and don't know how she feels, it's a wrap a what they think. I don't know how it feels to lose a parent, so I can't comment on how I think she should be feeling right now. All I can say is GOD's WILL be upon her and may she be blessed.

    Hi Tyler, I say AMEN to your statement "Leave This Baby Alone". My mother passed away in June, 2009 and there are times when the grief comes so unexpectedly and I can't control the tears. Please let this child (and she is still a child) grieve and stop being so judgemental. Leave her alone!!!

    Hi Tyler Once I saw the posting on facebook I read it and thought it was true and understood why she did it but when I got an email from you confirming that it wasn't true I was glad to know that as well so I thank you for confirming that for me. But in the mean time I understand where your coming from in regards to Bobbi Kristina people just love misery & need to get a life and find God and leave other people alone I understand that she is still a baby and a Young adult and that she needs time to grieve. I too lost my mother so I know what she's going through just the same as you my mom died almost 5 years ago and I am still griveing her I was only 26 years old when she passed it was hard for me because I was born with a Physical Disability and although I was fully grown I still needed my mother but God Loved her and knew what was best for her I got through it with family but 3 weeks from burying her things happen so fast for me but in time I had time to grieve sometimes its hard I just hold on to the memories Thank God for allowing me to have a mother in my life and keep going. so I know what she's going through may God continue to Bless her and keep her confronted and the same to you too.
