Tyler Perry is denying earlier reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of his show "For Better Or Worse" last week.  His reason?  You cannot walk off a show that already finished production which the show has.

Tyler also posted on his web site to "leave this child alone and stop the lies please" about this story.

Perry shared a story about talking with Bobbi Kristina after Whitney Houston's funeral about what she wanted to do with her career and Tyler set up the role for her.

Tyler also said "if this was your daughter, wouldn't you want that?"

Yes, Tyler, we would.  We also don't think she should be doing a reality show right now.  It is too soon.-DocFB

Bobbi Kristina has walked off the set of "For Better or Worse", the Tyler Perry TV show that airs on TBS.

Bobbi walked off the set last week, claiming she is not over the death of her mother Whitney Houston.  She only filmed a couple of episodes before quitting the show.

Bobbi is still filming her own reality TV show for Lifetime TV, where her reps say the filming is less stressful for her.

Perry's people are not commenting on her walk off but are having to re-write future episodes to explain the characters disappearance. The only thing they will say is that they are frustrated but support Bobbi Kristina fully.

It is being reported that Perry spoke with Bobbi Kristina privately about the situation.  Perry let the Houston family use his private jet to travel Whitney's body from L.A. to where she was laid to rest.

Kristina was being paid $30,000 per episode.  Although it is being reported that Whitney died broke, her estate has made quite a pretty penny for Bobbi Kristina, the sole heir to Whitney's millions.-DocFB

UPDATE:  Tyler Perry is denying the story and saying to leave this child alone.  Please see updated story on site.

Bobby Brown Goes Heart To Heart With Ellen About Whitney…And We Believe Him!


Ellen DeGeneres is the best interviewer ever. Seriously. After what has happened to Whitney Houston and his actions, we don't exactly have mad love for Bobby Brown. Yet, after watching Ellen, we feel his loss.

He talks about the flack he received performing the night of Whitney's death. I never fully understood why he did get grief for that. The comments a few days later where he said he is still "Bad ass Bobby Brown" was a little bit more offensive.

"She worked hard. Played hard. Lived hard. Loved hard" Bobby explained to Ellen about Whitney.

This whole reality show that Whitney Houston and even with Bobby's own show leaves a bad taste in our mouths. For one moment though, we felt Bobby's loss. Ellen really does humanize people.-DocFB
