Singer speaks out on death of daughter
R&B singer Bobby Brown has released a short statement following the death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, saying he feels “completely numb.”
Bobbi Kristina – the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston – passed away on Sunday, July 26 after being in a medically-induced coma for several months. The 22-year-old had appeared in 14 episodes of reality TV show ‘The Houstons On Our Own’, and also performed several duets with her mother on stage. She had struggled to cope with her mother’s death in 2012, and was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31 of this year.
“Krissy was and is an angel,” Bobby Brown said. “I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.”
Bobbi Kristina had spent the months since her coma in a hospital or hospice care, and died surrounded by friends and family, having never returned to consciousness.
The Houston family also released a joint statement on whitneyhouston.com, saying “It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers. As Bobbi Kristina would say: ‘The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.'”
