Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston, has reportedly walked off the set of the Tyler Perry sitcom that she is working on and has not been back since. Sources close to the production told Radar Online that Bobbi Kristina quit Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse last week, as she continues to deal with her mother’s death. “She thought she was ready for this, but she wasn’t,” one source told the site. The source adds that the 19-year-old had a “private breakdown and barely anyone saw it.” “She was crying and said she needed a minute,” the source said. “She needed a break to get herself together. But then she decided she couldn’t handle doing the show right now. She’s still mourning her mom.” Another source said that she is “confused” and “not prepared to live without her mom.” Extra reports that a few episodes of the series has already been completed, so Perry’s writers will be forced to do rewrites. Radar Online’s source says that she had a private conversation with Perry, who was upset with the situation, but understood what Bobbi Kristina was going through. “He understands. He’s upset and worried about her..But now he’s had to do a lot of restructuring work on the show.” Bobbi Kristina was first connected with the TBS show in a recurring role in March, but it the part was not confirmed until earlier this month. Bobbi Kristina is still participating in the Lifetime reality series focusing on the Houston family’s life since Whitney’s death called The Houston Family Chronicles. The 10-episode series is set to air later this year.
