Geraldo Rivera: ‘Keep Bobby Brown Away’ From Whitney Houston’s Daughter

In the wake of Whitney Houston‘s death, there have been a lot of questions floating around, whether about her funeral or her family. On Friday morning, Geraldo Rivera took to Fox News to address some of the issues, including Bobby Brown‘s relationship with his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and Houston’s fortune.

Warning of Brown’s bad influence, Rivera said:

Whitney Houston was an admitted junkie, there’s no doubt about that, and Bobby Brown, I blame him for getting her hooked … I think they should do everything to keep Bobby Brown away from Bobbi Kristina. But he is the only surviving parent, so really that’s her decision to make.

He went on to say that though Brown may be trying to reconnect with his daughter, there’s likely an ulterior motive:

But the suspicion is…that Bobby Brown, who was the world’s worst father, has made himself close to the daughter to get his hands on the $20 million estate that Whitney Houston — like Michael Jackson, like Elvis — worth much more dead than alive because she had squandered all her fortune. … So Bobby Brown, the man who got her hooked on gutter drugs, including crack, he is circling like a vulture around his own daughter now, and the suspicion is he’ll try to cash in.

Whatever the case, it’s probably not the last we’ll hear of this.
