(Newser) – Eerie news from TMZ: Less than 24 hours before her mother was found dead in a hotel bathtub, Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was also found asleep in a tub in the same hotel. Bobbi Kristina's friends called security on Friday night after knocking on the door of her room repeatedly, with no response. TMZ also reports that family members fear the 18-year-old, who has been hospitalized twice since Houston's death, may be suicidal. One source says the family is considering rehab for her.

Dad Bobby Brown skipped out on a scheduled concert appearance with New Edition in Nashville last night, instead flying to Los Angeles to be with his daughter, a rep confirms to People. Meanwhile, Tony Bennett responded to Houston's death by suggesting we legalize drugs. Performing at the pre-Grammy party thrown by Houston mentor Clive Davis, Bennett said, "First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse, now the magnificent Whitney Houston. Let's legalize drugs, like Amsterdam, it's a very sane city now." But authorities actually believe Houston's death can be blamed on prescription drugs.
