Oprah Winfrey came close to tears over the latest news about Whitney Houston's stricken daughter.
Photographers caught up with Oprah last night as she left a restaurant in West Hollywood. She learned for the first time about the 21-year-old's dire prognosis.
"Oh my God, do we know how she is right now?" Oprah asked.
"She's on life support," was the photographer's response.
Oprah looked shaken at the news.
Oprah asked, "No, no, no, what did you say?"
"That there's speculation that they have taken her off of life support but Bobby Brown is saying that that is not true," someone explained.
Oprah looks visibly shaken as she closes her eyes. "I hadn't heard that, really," she responded.
Oprah and Bobbi Kristina go way back. She gave her first interview to Oprah after Whitney's drowning.
Back then, Oprah asked Bobbi Kristina, "how are you doing?"
"I'm getting through it. I'm doing as good as I possibly can," she answered.
As Bobbi Kristina remains on life support at Emory University hospital in Atlanta, tensions seem to be growing in her family.
Reporter Daniel Wilkerson, from Atlanta station WGCL told INSIDE EDITION, "It was Bobby Brown's birthday yesterday. He left the hospital here. He went to the hotel where they had a birthday dinner. The liquor was flowing there. According to my source, a cousin called his older sister, Tina, 'a crackhead.' At that point Tina turned around and cracked a bottle over the cousin's head, she spit in his face, and that cousin had to have stiches."
INSIDE EDITION learned that Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, has joined the bedside vigil.
Wilkerson reported, "She flew in to say goodbye to her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina, one last time."
Whitney Houston's limo driver is also speaking out. He said he witnessed Whitney and her husband, Bobby Brown, doing drugs in front of their daughter.
He reported, "Rock cocaine use, smokable coke, crack if you will. She was smoking joints, like a lot of them. Joint after joint after joint you know, and then she would be talking to herself."
Shocking allegations as the nation wonders if Bobbi Kristina will suffer the same sad fate as her iconic mother.
