No words can describe what she must be going through in the days following her mother’s sudden death, but Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is “improving” according to her father, Bobby Brown.
Over the weekend, Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital after suffering from an emotional breakdown after learning of her “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” mother’s untimely demise.
On Wednesday (February 15), her father, Bobby, released a statement, saying, “My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better.”
“We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother’s death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected.”
“Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her,” Brown said on Monday. “However we will get through this tragedy as a family.”
While nothing can take away the pain of losing Whitney Houston, the thought of her being in a better place offers hope and peace.
The oft-troubled songstress had reportedly been talking a lot about Jesus Christ in the days leading up to her death.
According to a TMZ insider, Houston performed “Jesus Loves Me” at Tru nightclub last week, and also told a friend, “I’m gonna go see Jesus… I want to see Jesus.”
Whitney had told friends that she “felt like her time was coming,” and even discussed a Bible passage about Jesus with a friend, noting, “You know, he’s so cool… I really want to see that Jesus.”
As fans remain eager to pay their respects to the late singer and music icon, it was unfortunately confirmed yesterday (February 14) that a public memorial service will not be held for Whitney Houston.
According to a report, Mayor Cory Booker has declared that they won’t be holding an event at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey as previously thought.
Booker shared, “The Houston family has no plans to set up a public viewing at the Prudential Center this Friday. In compliance with the family’s wishes, the city is not moving forward with any public ceremony.”
Instead, Houston’s body will be viewed on Saturday at noon at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, though the service is by invitation only and will not include a wake.
A source in a report from Us Weekly told that Whitney’s mother, Cissy, “was at the funeral home until 2 a.m.” and “made it clear that a funeral must be inside a church,” as “the Prudential Center is not an appropriate venue.”
Houston’s body arrived into New Jersey via private plane on Monday, where it was later taken to Whigham Funeral Home.
Speaking out for the first time since the tragic passing of their loved one, the family of Whitney Houston released an official statement to the press this past Sunday (February 12).
Clearly grief-stricken, Whitney ‘s kin told press, “We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Whitney.”
“This is an unimaginable tragedy and we will miss her terribly. We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from her fans and friends. – The Houston Family.”
Meanwhile, Miss Houston’s former husband, Bobby Brown, also offered up an emotional statement the previous evening, with the New Edition singer writing, “I am deeply saddened at the passing of my ex-wife, Whitney Houston. At this time, we ask for privacy, especially for my daughter, Bobbi Kristina. I appreciate all of the condolences that have been directed towards my family and I at this most difficult time.”
With an autopsy already completed, early speculation points towards an accidental drowning as Whitney is believed to have fallen asleep in the bathtub after consuming prescription Xanax pills and alcohol.
