The late Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina will appear in some upcoming episodes of a Tyler Perry show, the New York Daily News reports.
Citing unnamed sources, the paper reports that Houston’s sole heir is to appear in a recurring role in “For Better or Worse.”
The site Straight from the A has details on the collaboration.
Perry has been a stalwart friend since Houston’s death, arranging for her remains to be transported from Los Angeles to her hometown for burial, and speaking at her memorial service.
Bobbi Kristina headed south shortly after her mother’s funeral, where Oprah Winfrey conducted an interview for the OWN channel.
In recent weeks news reports about the teen’s parents have been troubling: her father Bobby Brown was charged with DUI in Los Angeles, and TMZ reported that cocaine was discovered in the hotel room where Houston died. While Houston’s official cause of death was drowning, investigators stated that cocaine use was a contributing factor.
But she clearly has a strong friend in Perry.
