Beloved talk show host Oprah Winfrey may have landed the most coveted interview of 2012 with the late Whitney Houston‘s 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, but sources close to the troubled teen are saying certain family members have heartfelt concerns over the timing of the one-on-one with the talk show veteran.
“There is still no resolution and there has been nothing concrete on the cause of [Whitney's] death, and they were hoping for that,” a Houston family friend reveals to PEOPLE. “There were members of the family who weren’t keen on [the interview] going down at this time.”
“There are people who just want her to stay out of the limelight for a while,” the friend adds. “This is a little girl who just needs some time.”
Bobbi Kristina – who reportedly expressed interest “to walk in her parents’ footsteps” in a singing or acting career – is currently spending time with her aunt Patricia Houston and Whitney’s brother Gary Houston.
“She’s so very young and impressionable,” says the source. “She has to start finding herself as a woman on her own as opposed to defining herself as Whitney’s daughter and Whitney’s support. It’s kind of interesting to see what’s going to happen to her from here on in.”
Bobbi Kristina’s interview will air Sunday (March 11) on OWN’s Oprah’s Next Chapter.
