Whitney Houston’s daughter at the center of underage gambling investigation
An investigation has been launched to determine whether or not the daughter of the late Whitney Houston gambled illegally in a Las Vegas casino.
The investigation comes after reports and a video surfaced allegedly showing Bobbi Kristina Brown, who is 19, playing slot machines at the MGM Grand. To gamble in Nevada, one must be at least 21 years old.
Underage gambling is considered a misdemeanor.
Mark Lipparelli, who is chairman of the State Gaming Control Board, said investigators are checking the validity of the report and if Brown was gambling, then did MGM Grand employees know.
If underage gambling is determined, then MGM Grand’s parent company could face fines. Brown was in town to attend a tribute to her mother May 20 during the Billboard Music Awards.
Her father is entertainer Bobby Brown, who first became famous with the teenager boy band New Edition. Houston was found dead in her Beverly Hills Hotel suite in February.
