The I’m Every Woman singer opens up about her relationship with her 16-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who goes by Krissy.
“We have our moments when we clash, but we have a good relationship,” she reveals. “I want her to count on me to try to understand what she’s going through. No damnation, no condemnation, nothing that’s going to make her feel like she can’t come to me.”
Whitney, 46, says that it was her daughter who supported her throughout her divorce from her ex Bobby Brown, and who told her that it was “not all right” for him to be abusive and spit on her.
These days the close-knit mother-daughter duo are dealing with issues that are far less dire.
“[Krissy’s] always, always, always borrowing my clothes,” she says. “I’m cool with it, but she’ll take something and won’t give it back!”
Whitney’s new album, I Look to You, hit stores in August.
