Almost two months after burying his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown has found the courage to publicly open up about his daughters death. Brown sat down with the hosts of “The Real”, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Tamar Braxton, and Loni Love and stated, “We prayed in hope for six months, you know, for something better to happen, but when god calls you he calls you. I’m pretty sure her mother was … had a part with like: Come on. Let’s get her up here.” Brown’s wife Alicia Etheredge added, “In the best way… in the welcoming way.” Brown continued, “She was not comfortable by herself, I guess. She just called my daughter with her.”
On January 31st, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home. For six months she remained hospitalized in a coma with global and irreversible brain damage. She died in hospice care on July 26th, at only 22 years old. The cause of her death is still unknown and being investigated.
Bobbi Kristina’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is one of the primary suspects in the case, however, he hasn’t been criminally charged yet. Gordon has been slapped with a lawsuit by Bobbi Kristina’s conservators that accuses him of wrongful death, emotional abuse, physical abuse, and stealing more than $11,000 from Bobbi Kristina’s bank account while she was in the hospital. On Tuesday, Gordon’s lawyer asked the judge to dismiss the suit, which alleges that he was responsible for her death.
Earlier this year, a source close to Bobby Brown revealed that Bobbi’s death has affected his life tremendously, and that he is overcome with grief and guilt, blaming himself for her death. The source stated, “He told me he should have insisted Krissy get help for her drug addiction and he should have forced Nick Gordon to move out of her townhouse and leave her alone — legally, if necessary. Bobby says he was her father no matter what age she was, and he should have fought her or anyone else who stopped her from saving her from herself.”
Whitney Houston died February 11, 2012, after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office reported the cause of Houston’s death was drowning and the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use”.
