In this Feb. 12, 2011 file photo, Whitney Houston, left, and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, arrive at the Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute to Industry Icons with Clive Davis honoring David Geffen in Beverly Hills, Calif.

According to Tyler Perry, Bobbi Kristina is not prone to diva moments.

RadarOnline reported in May that Whitney Houston's only child left the set of his sitcom "For Better or Worse," too emotional to proceed since she was still mourning the sudden death of her superstar mother. Perry not only came to her defense in an impassioned missive on his website, he recently sang her praises when asked about her acting debut.

"She did a fantastic job," the mogul said at the June 25 premiere of his latest flick, "Madea's Witness Protection," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Perry also mentioned that she may even have a long Hollywood career ahead of her. "And that kid has a such a future. She's such an actor. I'm so proud of her. I'm telling you, as far as she wants to go in the business, she can."

The next season of the TBS show premieres on July 13.
