Social media reveals the murky world of Bobbi Kristina and the …

With a huge grin on her face and giving a thumbs up to the camera, Bobbi Kristina Brown stands next to one of her best friends – who holds a huge hunting knife aloft. The 21-year-old, who remains in medically-induced coma after being found face down and unconscious in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home on January 31 more than a week ago, has a coterie of friends who have surrounded her ever since her mother’s death. However, it’s a gang who appear to have a life of fast cars, expensive watches – and guns and knives.

The blond-haired man standing next to her in the troubling photo is Mason Whitaker, 23 who describes himself as Bobbi Kristina’s honorary brother, calling her ‘best sister and best friend’. Mason, from Georgia, who says he works as ‘security detail’ in the entertainment industry, is close to both Bobbi Kristina and her partner Nick Gordon. Indeed, Whitaker was the passenger in Gordon’s BMW sedan when he was arrested for a DUI in August.

Neither were injured, however, after the accident, police charged Gordon, 24, with DUI for failure to maintain a lane and driving with a suspended license. It certainly looks like Bobbi Kristina remained close to Whitaker – who has so far been unavailable for comment – as he has posted pictures of them together with his parents and numerous pictures of them together. Alone in the house they once shared with Whitney Houston before her 2012 death, Bobbi Kristina and Gordon were alone to do what they pleased, and surrounded themselves with what could be said to be less than salubrious characters.

It was another friend, Max Lomas, who discovered Bobbi unconscious in the bathtub at home on February 1. He is believed to have discovered her when he went looking for her when a cable man knocked at the door. When she did not respond, he went in and found her, his attorney said.

Lomas, who works for a Norcross tree service, has a history of trouble with the law. In disturbing pictures online, he poses with a sword and posts images of a an AR-15-style assault rifle – with a 100-round drum magazine – and two sem-iautomatic pistols. Similarly, Whitaker has also posted a picture of the same gun up online.

He was arrested on January 15 and charged with possession of the anti-anxiety drug Alprazolam and marijuana. He was also charged with possession of a firearm or knife during commission or attempt to commit certain felonies, according to Fulton County Jail records. According to the incident report, Roswell police went to a hotel fearing that Lomas may have been using drugs to keep an 18-year-old woman believed to be his girlfriend from leaving.

Lomas’ attorney, Philip Holloway, denied those allegations, however, saying: ‘I’ve got a written statement directly from the girlfriend where she says in no uncertain terms that she was not being forcibly held by anyone and that she was not given any drugs.’ Holloway stressed that the arrest is not connected to the incident at Bobbi Kristina’s home, and said that Lomas is cooperating with authorities. In another incident from June of 2011, Lomas and four others were arrested after police searched the truck they were sitting in parked in a forest in Dawson County, Georgia and found three rifles and a large amount of marijuana.

He was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of firearms during commission of a felony, and consumption of alcohol in a park. He was also arrested in 2012 for a probation violation. Now, TMZ reports that there is an active criminal investigation underway in Georgia, saying there is a history of violence between Bobbi Kristina and Gordon – and that police are looking into a possible altercation more than an hour before she was found submerged in a bathtub.

While police said they had found drugs in the house, it is not clear how Bobbi Kristina came to lose consciousness. Suspicious injuries found on Bobbi Kristina when she was taken to hospital made them suspect foul play may have been involved, according to TMZ. It’s reported that Lomas now claims that Gordon allegedly cleaned up the house and removed blood stains.

Cops interviewed both Lomas and Gordon and they want to debrief Lomas again, but law enforcement sources say Lomas’s lawyer insisted on immunity before he spoke again. As of Friday morning, Lomas had not gotten immunity or talked to cops, while TMZ reported that Gordon had also got a lawyer. While Bobbi Kristina continues her fight for life at Emory University Hospital in Georgia, pictures she and Gordon posted online give a telling glimpse at their tactile relationship.

Looking like a loved-up couple, Gordon holds a scantily-clad Bobbi Kristina in the air, while in another shot, she is sprawled over him on a bed as he lies half naked. She then pouts as she puts her arms around his torso. But far from the pictures portraying a happy young couple, their violent relationship was well known among their friends, according to TMZ.

Gordon, who was taken in by Whitney Houston when he was a child, felt he was also the star’s child and so could not understand why people focused more on Bobbi Kristina, the source claimed. Sources claim he is jealous of his partner and cited a recent incident in which the couple were trying to get their own reality TV show, but Gordon wasn’t offered the same deal as Bobbi Kristina so they turned it down. Gordon has not recently been photographed visiting Bobbi Kristina and today was summoned to appear in court today to answer charges of reckless driving, however, he did not turn up.

A warrant for his immediate arrest was due to be issued if he did not turn up at Fulton County State Court in Atlanta at 9am. Gordon, 25, was caught driving at over twice the speed limit along a suburban road in November 2012. His relationship with family members has been rocky, and he remains subject to a protective order barring him from being within 200 feet of Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Patricia Houston.

While last week, a lawyer representing Bobbi’s father said: ‘We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina.’ ‘To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.’ Relations between Gordon and other family members have been rocky and he remains subject to a protective order barring him from being within 200 feet of Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Patricia Houston.

Bobbi Kristina’s parents Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s were married for 15 years, a marriage that was dogged by rumors of drug-fueled domestic violence. Singing legend Whitney, was found dead in the bath tub of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11 2012, an eerie foreshadowing of Bobbi Kristina’s near-drowning. Authorities found a dozen prescription drug bottles in Whitney’s suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors, but concluded that she accidentally drowned.

Tonight, devastated friends and family will hold a candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina at the Amphitheater at Riverdale Town Center in Riverdale, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. A distraught Bobby Brown, dressed in black, was seen outside the hospital as Cissy Houston, mother of Whitney, arrived today to see her granddaughter. ‘There has been no change,’ a Brown family member told People: ‘We are hoping that God will see fit to perform a miracle in her, so that he will get the glory.’

Bobbi Kristina’s cousin Jerod Brown posted a message on Facebook that read: ‘OK let me go further in depth because my words are being taken out of context: Though doctors may report to the public that opening her eyes is not a good thing or bad thing…Though the media reported she’s in a coma… #StillPrayForBK Though your neighbor may not be hopeful….#StillPrayForBK’
