In an interview with Us Weekly, Bobby Brown revealed he and Whitney Houston‘s only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died in February as opposed to when they announced it to the public in July 2015.
When asked how he and his family continued to celebrate the life of Bobbi Kris, the 49-year-old revealed that she died days before his birthday (he was born on February 5).
“She passed away three days before my birthday, so we definitely honor her at all times.”
The 22-year-old died of lobar pneumonia on July 26, 2015. She was found unresponsive in her bathtub on January 31, 2015 and stayed in a coma for nearly six months. Brown’s estate filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Nick Gordon in 2015. He was found responsible legally in 2016, for failing to show up to two civil hearings.
In 2017 TV One premiered the Bobbi Kristina biopic, starring Demetria McKinney as Whitney Houston, Vivica A. Fox as Pat Houston and Joy Rovaris as Bobbi Kris. Watch what Vivica says ultimately led to her taking on the role of Whitney’s sister-in-law.
