Bobbi Kristina Brown
Last year it was revealed that from the time the late Whitney Houston’s daughter was a preteen, Bobbi Kristina Brown was receiving $10,000 per month in allowance from her mother. A young Bobbi Kristina grew up in the midst of her parents severe drug addiction and dysfunction, which negatively impacted her. For a time she became estranged from her dad, R&B singer, Bobby Brown.

Brown needed structure and guidance, but her parents, who struggled with their own serious addictions, could barely care for themelves at times, let alone her. Brown also needed a regular allowance and a job by her mid-teens to keep her occupied and teach her the value of money. Instead her $10,000 allowance went to partying, drugs and alcohol, with too much free time on her hands. Today she is "fighting for her life" in an Atlanta hospital, after a drug overdose at the age of 21. Sometimes privilege can be a bad thing. It is a tragic thing to happen to a young life that held so much promise.
