Hours before Bobbi Kristina made her acting debut on ‘For Better or Worse’, show creator Tyler Perry took to his website to voice his support.
“Ok, with my heart and soul I will help and protect this child, just as I tried to do for Whitney. So with that said, one thing I knew that Krissi would need after Whitney’s death was a safe place to grieve. So when she told me she wanted to act I said I would help,” writes Perry in a community message to his supporters.
He continued: “If she had said she wanted to be a doctor I would have tried to help her get into the best schools. But because she said acting, that was easy for me. I thought, ‘this is great’. This way I could have her on the show, while at the same time be there for her and help her walk through this grief.”
Perry closed out his message with praises for Bobbi Kristina’s performance, who guest starred as the daughter of a hairstylist who works in the beauty shop owned by Angela Williams (Tasha Smith).
“I’m so proud of this kid. You have no idea . . . I know Whitney is smiling down on her baby girl . . . she’s been through hell and to see her smile melts my heart.”
