Singer Bobby Brown admits that he and pop superstar Whitney Houston failed their daughter Bobbi Kristina as parents.
In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, Brown said that as parents, they should have done better by their only daughter, as reported by People.
“We could have been better. We should have been better,” Brown stated to Roberts in the interview.
Bobbi Kristina Brown died in July of 2015 at the age of just 22-years-old.
She was found unresponsive in her bathtub at the home she shared in Atlanta with fiance Nick Gordon.
A toxicology report later revealed that the aspiring singer was found to have the following substances in her body: marijuana, alcohol, “a cocaine-related substance,” sedatives, anti-anxiety medications and morphine.
“It’s not a mystery to me. The same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney,” Brown said sorrowfully.
Bobby Brown continues to maintain that Gordon had something to do with the death of his daughter.
“He knows what happened,” Brown said in the interview with Roberts. “I don’t know what happened that night. But he does.”
Despite his anger towards the circumstances surrounding his daughter’s death, Brown says he recalls the last words he said to his child and how he hoped they were a comfort to her.
“The last thing I told her, I just said, ‘Let go.’ I said, ‘It’s OK, you can go with your mom, daddy’ll be all right. I love you. You can rest now,'” Brown said.
“Hardest thing I had to do in my life was telling my daughter to let go…. I don’t wish that on my worst enemy or any enemy. That is the worst pain in the world,” he said tearfully.
Nick Gordon maintains his innocence in the accidental death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.
An investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding her death.
