While Bobby's new wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, tells the media her hubby is "mentally in a great place" and thanks his fans for the concern, his only daughter with the late Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, has a different opinion.

When asked by reporters if her dad was "rising above" his alcohol issues, she quipped: "rising above is not the word you should use...not at all."

Which leads one to believe his booze problems might be more severe.

Meanwhile, Bobby told Matt Lauer in May that he'll "always" worry Bobbi Kristina inherited the addictive gene for substances that plagued both he and Whitney. That being said, he doesn't believe his daughter is using now.
