Bobby Brown Opens Up About His Daughter: “My Baby’s Gone”

A father’s love for his daughter runs deep.

In a trailer for an upcoming 20/20 interview, Bobby Brown is seen in tears as he talks to host Robin Roberts about the loss of his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. Bobbi passed away in July 2015 in a tragic accident that resembled the passing of her mother and Bobby’s ex, Whitney Houston. His 22-year-old daughter was found unresponsive in a bathtub, and died 6 months later while in hospice care. Similarly, Houston was found unconscious in a bathtub at a hotel in Beverly Hills in 2012, and her death was deemed an accidental drowning. “The same thing that happened to my daughter, it happened to Whitney,” a heartbroken Bobby Brown tells Roberts.

The 20/20 special is Brown’s first TV interview since his daughter died. In tears, he says, “The hardest thing I had to do in my life was tell my daughter to let go. My baby’s gone.” The singer adds, “I thank God I’m still here.”

Bobby is part of a lawsuit against Bobbi Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon. There is currently a $10 million lawsuit against Gordon that was filed by Bobbi Brown’s family. They believe Gordon was involved in Brown’s death and had a history of abusing her.

Brown’s interview will also disclose intimate details about his life with Houston, including their tumultuous marriage. The interview airs on Tuesday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
