From her father despite the fact that he flew to Los Angeles there -- great concerns about Bobbi Kristina she was rushed to hospital twice in twelve -- up to him mother's -- She has -- introduce to drug use in the cost.
That's well -- and that's well documented they were even photos.
As snorting -- kind some twelve months ago.
So the family's very fractured at this time.
No we don't know for certain where the Bobby has been with Bobbi Kristina -- what I can tell you judges that Bobbi Kristina was not inside the church to die.
-- all the -- is this the scuffle if you lot.
So plight with that security and Bobby Brown.
What do we know just very quickly Dylan whether or not there was visitation after the divorce I mean with Bobby Brown seeing his own daughter.
Not symbols that -- I don't think that.
No I know we don't know deficit just.
All right and and finally how was -- health prior to her death you know.
It's a very important facts to tell you about tonight judge I can tell you.
That Whitney Houston so I Beverly Hills -- dot we've done -- that was the sign doctor but three times over the period -- I dies before -- -- That is now the subject of these coroner's investigation.
Where drugs prescribed to her at that time by multiple physicians and what full.
That he's a K and that's what subpoenas have been issued and -- important fact to tell you about tonight judge.
Is that Whitney Houston visited a plastic surgeon some three weeks before -- debt.
And the plastic surgeon refuse to perform an elective procedure on because she filed the medical that all cited a case important in -- at this -- All right thank you Dylan and doctor -- lot I'll go right you.
There's no cause of death even though the autopsy is already been -- what are we waiting.
Four -- waiting for correlation of the autopsy findings the toxicology results.
And the police investigation of why does a toxicology -- -- will the tax they probably finished most of the toxicology what can take longest is the police investigation.
That nobody -- how Whitney.
Was found deceased except what the body guard that I think it addresses says.
They want to make sure that that's accurate and correct was her head under water what she.
Leaning over the tub.
Did she go into the -- under our own ability or did somebody carry -- in the tub.
In order to revive her because she passed out okay those things the police have to do a lot of work on.
Now it you know all the talk about overdosing and the visit to a doctor three times and we know that she got what we believe that she got a boxes Dylan.
-- How how do we determining whether or not that she overdosed on drugs you don't.
Looking for the only determination is going to be by the toxicology report what was found a chemically because what drugs or in the room at the time.
May or may not be drugs that were used by -- And whether or not -- also possibly had any kind of heart attack or.
Hemorrhage in the brain or something those are things as unlikely as they are have to be ruled out by looking at on the microscope then takes time and the tax.
Doctor if it indeed is a heart attack happily tell how the -- a heart attack occurred.
What causes stress it coronary problem he said he brought its most.
-- heart attack everybody's heart stops and we -- right in would have a heart attack you have to have usually hardening of the arteries a blockage of the coronary arteries that they can see.
And with the naked die yet the autopsy and under the microscope that's unlikely for 48 year old woman but he can occur.
Okay and and doctor assuming that and -- was in rehab quite often very quickly at thirty seconds is there -- risks to -- doctor to prescribe.
Prescription drugs to someone who is -- -- an -- It's very hard to individual doctors to deal with -- that's why alcoholic anonymous and -- all of these rehab centers.
Have been created because individual doctors have a very poor track record.
With alcoholics and the drug abusers it is the peer group pressure of other rockaholics -- other drug abusers and rehab.
That helps to cure or somebody and that's what we have rehab centers.
Rather than individual doctors treating addicts -- doesn't work.
All right -- doctor Bob it's always good to see you end of the worst Dylan it is always good to see you as well thank you both.
