During their volatile marriage, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown were often driven to distraction. In 1996, he totaled her Porsche when he crashed into a stop sign and some trees in Florida. Eight years later, she rear-ended a city bus while piloting a Porsche in Georgia. And it seems their daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has inherited their vehicular skills.
On Wednesday, the 19-year-old crashed her sports car near her home in Alpharetta, Ga. According to TMZ and The Associated Press, a passerby called 911 after spotting the smashed-up car in a ditch, and when police arrived, an apparently uninjured Bobbi Kristina was standing next to it.
Police believe that she lost control of her black Camaro while coming out of her apartment complex, clipping a curb and heading down an embankment. She hit several "small trees" on the way before the car stopped along a park trail.
Cops gave Bobbi Kristina a ticket for "failure to maintain lane" but don't suspect drugs or alcohol were involved. After the accident, she tweeted, "My Personal Guardian Angel. Thankumom."
This is the second accident BK has had this month. She also collided with maybe-fiance Nick Gordon's matching Camaro while backing into a spot in the parking garage of their apartment building.
Speaking of Gordon, are the couple, who talked up their engagement on Lifetime's "The Houstons: On Our Own," still an item?
"@REALbkBrown and I are not engaged or dating," Gordon, 22, tweeted last week. "Just close like we have always been."
The two have been tight since they were kids, with Whitney unofficially adopting Nick when he was 12.
Bobbi Kristina has been flashing a sizable sparkler, but on Monday she tweeted, "I guess it's time 4me2stop depending on [anyone]. It's my time2follow what Mom&The Lord put out on this path for me."
But is this all just a PR ploy for their reality show? "They did split," a source tells Us Weekly. "It will come out in the show."
