Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19-year-old daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, may be facing jail time after photographs captured her allegedly gambling illegally in Las Vegas this past weekend.
Brown was in Las Vegas to honor her mother at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, however she was spotted accompanying her 22-year-old boyfriend Nick Gordon at MGM Resort and Casino on Saturday night.
Although it has not been confirmed whether Brown actually engaged in gambling, the law in Las Vegas states that lingering in a casino while underage is also illegal. In Nevada, gamblers who are not at least 21 years old may be subject to six months in county jail or a $1,000 fine, while the casino is also punished.
The daughter of Houston and singer Bobbi Brown was videotaped allegedly using a slot machine, in footage that was leaked to TMZ. However, there was no confirmation about whether Houston's underage daughter made any profit from her alleged gambling.
Despite the video evidence obtained by TMZ, the Nevada Gaming Commission and State Gaming Control Board Deputy Chief, David Salas, said an investigation needed to be launched to determine how to respond to the matter.
"We will look into it," Salas said, according to told RumorFix.
Although Bobbi Kristina spent some of her time in Las Vegas at the casino on Saturday, she took to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night to accept the Millennium Award in her mother's absence.
"I really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all," she told the audience. "Not just from when it was good but when it was bad, too. Thank you for showing that much love, because she deserved it…I'm just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life. There will never be another one, ever."
