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.

    Bravo, Mr. Perry people seem to forget what it feels like to lose a close loved one. Sometimes you just need support. I think we all forget that she is a child, famous or not she needs support not subjection.

    IF SHE WERE MY CHILD I would want just what you said, for people to leave her alone and let her grieve. Positive support in emotional distress is better than criticism and micro-helpers. Like everyone who has lost a parent before adulthood she will find her way. She has an advantage in your positive support. Thanks for using yuusing your voice so positively.

    Hi Tyler i just wanted to say I loved Good Deeds. I find myself defending you about the movie its being said it didn't have a message and they were socked about the sex scene in the movie and that every scene was predictable. Some say its the same as persuit of happiness. I disagreed with them. Keep doing your thing Tyler. May God continue to bless you.

    Hi Tyler Perry, Today is June 1st 2012 and on I just saw a video on Youtube that the studio was on fire. I got the news a little late I must say, however I was in shock that the local media did not even mention this at all. What is going on in this country? Lousy news is more important. I am glad that no one was hurt however. I luv your movies and cant wait to see the new Madea movie. My daughter is joining me; I somehow got her hooked to your movies and I am glad. Bigger and better blessing will come your way as long as you continue being humble and honoring God. Continued blessing to you...

      Wow! I was not aware of the fire... The most important thing is that noone got hurt. Tyler your so courageous and amazing I know God will replenish everything that was lost. I am a loyal fan that would and will always support you.... cant wait to see the new Medea movie, I love all of them and so does my daughter. We love you Tyler

    Amen! Let this CHILD of GOD REST....... Put The Shout to the Up If You only have Negitive untrue statements, You need to see Everyone is Somebody and Somebody makes EVERYBODY.....THINK ABOUT IT WWJD*******WWMD******

    I hope that one of her goals, if she hasn't done so, is to GO TO COLLEGE!!! Dr. Bobbi Kristina Brown, Ph.D. has a nice ring to it... I can think of no better way to honor Ms. Whitney's memory than for her to use the ENORMOUS legacy that her mother has left behind as a stepping stone and an opportunity to carve out her own niche. Dr. Bobbie Kristina Brown, Ph.D., Businesswoman/Actress/Singer/Philanthropist/Whatever You Want to Be. Ms. Bobbi, you are in my thoughts. Be well.

  • Jan Texas

    I agree, people are sooooooooooooo evil, all of Whitney's accomplishments all they can manage to do is focus on the negative things. Well nobody is perfect accept the father, we love Whitney no matter what she was a beautiful person inside and out..... her spirit lives.. so Bobbi don't worry about what people say about your mother, keep your head up, keep God first in everything you do and everywhere you go, i guarantee God will take care of your enemies. every tougue that rises up against you will be condemned. You deserve the same opportunity as everyone else to live a normal life without people putting negative thing in your ear about your mother. God will silence them. I will continue to pray for you and if you need someone to talk to or pray with I 'm here. Wow if you only knew what your awsome, beautiful mother meant to us... We love you Bobbi

    Thank you Tyler simply put. Please leave her alone. Everyday I post something positive and encouraging on her wall on Twitter because I know that she will read them. Whitney was larger than life. She just wanted peace. She wanted friends who liked her because they vibed good together, Not because they would capitalize on being Whitney Houston's friend. It is not a happy situation to not have privacy. To have your marriage scrutinized, The person you loved and planned to spend your life together under a microscope and all the while you are honing your craft and trying to raise your daughter in a normal environment as possible. It is very abnormal to want to take a picture of someone while they are eating. She wanted to just vibe with other artists just because she liked there music and played it in her car radio. I always loved her and respected her and wished like h*** she could have survived this hurdle. But thanks for the acting job for Bobbi Kristina. That was one of the posts I sent to her on twitter to get a job. As a young person you have to start early trying to find your place in the world. It will be the same for her. So I give her motherly advice and it is so nice because she never retweets it. Let's all continue to watch over her and pray for her. aND GUIDE HER AS WE WOULD WISH FOR OUR RELATIVES TO GUIDE OUR CHILDREN IF WE PASSED ON. GOD BLESS AND KEEP EACH AND EVERYONE ONE AND GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    Praying for Bobbie Kristina does very well in her acting career. Such a wonderful thing you're doing for Kristina Mr. Perry. I'm also praying that people will stop and leave her alone as well!

    Tyler Perry, I am also glad you spoke out with that truth. Whitney Houston was a great person, she have great music we can still listen to whenever we want to, her spirit lives on . I wish I had the opportunity to meet her I love her so dearly. I'm a recovering addict with 14yrs clean I wish God had given me the opportunity to meet Whitney face to face I sware we have alot in common as women & sisters in christ like alot of us do. I to wanted to sing, act and model nobody help me with my goals, so I got lost out there in the streets lost in didn't know how to achieve them out of angry and frustration that is what happen. So thank you Tyler Perry!
