Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has assured fans that a photo of herself getting high, which was posted online, is a hoax.

Earlier this week (beg14Jul14), the snap of Brown smoking what appeared to be a bong was shared on Instagram.com, but the reality Tv star insists reports she uploaded it are not true.

The picture was captioned: "This picture may be inappropriate but I want to make a connection with you all. Don't worry this picture isn't recent just hear me out. Do you know what I feel? I feel strange I can't feel any pain anymore. I don't take any drugs as of recently. Things just happened. But then there is some situation that force me to do things and the impact I'll feel pain. I did and I do. I was hurt."

The Instagram account has since been deleted and now Brown states, "I've never posted any photo of me doing anything! This is someone trying to tarnish and make a horrible name for Myself. People are insane."

The 21 year old's mother battled substance abuse throughout her life and cocaine was listed as a contributing factor in her death in February, 2012, when she drowned in a bathtub.
