Bobby Brown has spoken out about his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died on Sunday at age 22.

“Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time,” the R&B singer told Entertainment Tonight in a statement. “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, also the daughter of Whitney Houston, died six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in late January. She was rushed to the hospital where she was placed in a medically induced coma from which she never recovered.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” the Houston family said in a statement released after her death. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

Bobby Brown and Houston split when Bobbi was 14 years old. Brown has had several encounters with the law including recent DUIs and was periodically addicted to cocaine, crack and heroin.

      Variety what poor taste you have to mention her father’s shady past at a time of morning. Thanks for for stumping a man when he’s down

    3. Lilly says:

      Rest in peace pretty girl.

    4. Paula says:

      I feel very bad for the family, but I feel the worst for Bobbi. If she had not been raised with two parents who were addicted to all kinds of drugs maybe she would still be alive, they taught her it was ok to do drugs and look where she is now! They all should have been seeking the Lord to get away from their demons before it killed two people!!!

      • akashanovani says:

        no they did not teach her that it was alright to do drugs, I personally know Bobby and never in his life would he have taught his child to do anything wrong, he knew what mistakes he made and he never wanted his daughter to make the same mistakes as well you never knock on someone whom has already passed that is down right low. you do not know what caused any of what happened in any of their lives.

      • Private eye says:

        Paula you are too judgemental it hurts for her family right now .They don’t need a person who is pathetic as you are . did you see them teaching her about drugs.

    5. Julie Czulewicz says:

      May God hold Bobbi Kristina in his embrace and may she find the peace that so eluded her here on earth. My thoughts and prayers go out to her grieving father, Bobby Brown, who lost his baby girl.

      I agree with Theotherdirection. Can you not redact the last sentence? If not, be sure to list Robert Downey Jr’s notorious crack habit as well as the criminal and drug histories of every other Caucasian entertainer that you reference. The man can’t even mourn his daughter in dignity. You people are disgusting.

    7. theotherdirection says:

      Why is the last sentence in this article even necessary? What does it matter what drugs he’s struggled with. Isn’t this article about his reaction to the death of his daughter? Does Variety put the past transgressions of every celebrity at the end of an article about them. I hate to call media bias but it really smells like it.
