Bobbi Kristina Brown Investigated For Underage Gambling
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston, is at the center of an underage gambling investigation, Nevada authorities confirm. The Nevada Gaming Commission has confirmed it is looking in to whether the 19-year-old played slot machines at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas over the weekend. Footage appearing to show Brown playing the machines was posted on TMZ Monday. The teen was accompanied by her rumored boyfriend, 22-year-old Tyler Gordon.
A spokesman for MGM Resorts said the casino "will cooperate fully with the Gaming Control Board." Brown, who was in Las Vegas to participate in a tribute to her mother at the Billboard Music Awards, has not commented.
Under Nevada law underage gambling is a misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. The gambling age is 21.
