Bobby Brown says he believes Whitney Houston wanted their daughter Bobbi Kristina to be with her in Heaven.
The singer’s only child with late songstress Houston went into a coma in January after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in Georgia. She eventually died in July at the age of 22.
Her mother died three and a half years earlier in February 2012 after being found unconscious in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
“We prayed and hoped for six months for something better to happen,” Bobby said on US talk show The Real, which is due to air on Monday.
“But when God calls you, he calls you.”
In his first TV interview since Bobbi Kristina’s death, Bobby revealed he is convinced an angelic form of his ex-wife Houston greeted their daughter up in Heaven.
Although the 46-year-old My Prerogative crooner is desperately sad to have lost his daughter, he says he is in some way grateful she is not alone in the afterlife.
“I’m pretty sure her mother was … had a part with like, ‘Come on, let’s get her up here’,” Bobby noted.
“[Whitney] was not comfortable by herself, I guess. She just called my daughter with her.”
Bobby says he wishes he could have done something to prevent his daughter’s death.
“I might walk back there and start crying. If I could have been there two days before, it would not have gone down like that.”
When asked what his fondest memory of Bobbi Kristina is, Bobby answered: “her smile”.
