Tyler Perry wanted to give Bobbi Kristina Brown a prominent role on one of his television shows. Did BK bite? Nope! She walked away like a diva.

Bobbi Kristina Brown leaves Tyler Perry's show

It seems like everyone was clamoring to offer Bobbi Kristina Brown acting jobs after her mother, Whitney Houston, died in February. One of those offers was from Tyler Perry — he gave her a starring role on his TBS sitcom, Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse. However, it seems like she wasn't ready for the challenge and abruptly left the show last week, according to RadarOnline.

"She thought she was ready for this, but she wasn’t," a source told the website, adding that she has already filmed a few episodes and writers had to scramble to rewrite scripts and explain her exit. Yikes: While we totally understand why she left, we don't understand why people were so eager to put her to work. She barely had time to mourn the loss of her mom and she's still having a really hard time with the loss.

"Bobbi Kristina had a private breakdown and barely anyone saw it," a source added of her decision to quit the show. "She was crying and said she needed a minute, she needed a break to get herself together. But then she decided she couldn’t handle doing the show right now. She’s still mourning her mom."

Bobbi Kristina will still participate in the Lifetime reality show about her and the Houston family, mostly because it's less taxing on her physically and mentally. She can also defer to other family members if she's not feeling up to filming.

We want to say that BK is being a total diva — and it seems like she is — but she's also a young girl who misses her mom.

"She is confused right now," another source said. "She is not prepared to live without her mom."

None of us are — it must be 100 times more difficult under the scrutiny of the ruthless public.
