Bobby Brown arrived at Los Angeles International Airport late Sunday to be at the side of his 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who’s been hospitalized twice in the wake of her mother Whitney Houston’s untimely death Saturday.
The Cool It Now singer, 43, missed a New Edition reunion concert in Tennessee for the family emergency; he issued a statement in the wake of his ex-wife’s passing, saying he was “deeply saddened” by her death at 48.
Since Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina has been hospitalized twice in a 12-hour span at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
According to a source, “She tried to ease the pain of losing her mother by having a few alcoholic drinks. She was distraught, on the verge of a complete breakdown. Not knowing what to do, members of her mother’s entourage tried to calm her down with a sedative.
“The two were an unfortunate mix, and she ended up passing out.”
Brown, during his New Edition concert in Mississippi Saturday, told concertgoers: “First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, ‘I love you Whitney.’ The hardest thing for me to do is come on this stage.”
Houston and Brown were married from 1992 to 2007.
The autopsy is complete, but it might be several weeks before authorities in Los Angeles can determine what killed the Grammy-winning singer.
As we previously reported, the How Will I Know singer, who sought help for a crack addiction last year, was seen in public for the last time late Thursday in Hollywood, looking disheveled and sporting cuts.
