Bobbi Kristina Brown “seems to be without parental guidance” in the wake of her mother Whitney Houston’s death, reports Star, which goes on to claim, “One person is stepping up to keep the teen clean: Mariah Carey!” Gossip Cop can exclusively report the story is not true. But let’s look at what the tabloid says anyway.

“Mariah decided it was time for some tough love,” a so-called “insider” tells the magazine, adding, Carey and Brown had “a pretty harsh conversation, and they both ended up in tears.” So, what exactly did the two supposedly talk about? “[Carey] told Krissy straight up that she knows she’s not living right,” says the tabloid’s source, who offers no other specifics regarding the alleged discussion.

Still, that doesn’t stop Star’s “insider” from opining, “Hopefully it had some sort of impact, because Krissy needs to make some serious changes.” Enough! Brown, of course, is still grieving the shocking loss of her mother, and there are going to be bumps in the road. But this supposed tearful confrontation with Carey over her alleged behavior is complete fiction and never happened. A rep for Carey tells Gossip Cop that Star’s story is “not true at all.”
