Tragically, Jermaine Jackson can relate to Bobbi Kristina Brown. Both have lost loved ones under the intense glare of the public spotlight.
So, with Whitney Houston's 18-year old daughter reportedly nearing a breakdown and with her family hoping she enters rehab, what advice would Jermaine offer the teenager?
"She's got to stay strong and be with her family," the former Jackson 5 member told Us Weekly last night. "There are so many bad influences... [you have to] go back to the basics. Surround yourself with love from your family. That's the most important thing."
Jackson was close to the late artist. He worked with Houston on her first album, spoke to her mother yesterday and said he considered Whitney a "good friend."
