It’s a difficult time for the family of Whitney Houston as they grieve the singer’s death. But her 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who was hospitalized twice for an emotional breakdown after her mother’s passing last Saturday, is improving, according to her father.
My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better,” Bobby Brown said in a written statement Wednesday. “We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected.”
The 43-year-old Don’t Be Cruel singer continued: “Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her. However we will get through this tragedy as a family.”
There was speculation that Brown was shut out of Houston’s funeral by his former in-laws. (The couple divorced in 2007 after 15 years together.) But a source said that such reports were inaccurate, and that Brown will be attending the service, to be held this Saturday at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ.
