Only hours after Bobbi Kristina Brown tragically died on July 26, Whitney Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick remembered the young girl on ‘Watch What Happens Live.’ Click to WATCH.
Bobbi Kristina Brown sadly passed away at the young age of 22 after nearly seven months in a coma. Hours after her tragic death was announced on July 26, Whitney Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick, 74, made a brave appearance on Watch What Happens Live. The singer stayed strong and honored Bobbi Kristina with a few sweet words and admitted that she will “be missed.”
Host Andy Cohen thanked Dionne for being on the show amidst the tragedy and asked what she wanted people to know about Bobbi Kristina. “Oh my, do we have enough time? She was a sweetheart and she will be missed that’s for sure,” Dionne said. “And she was a good girl… She was a good little girl, she really was.”
This is the second tragedy for Dionne and Bobbi Kristina’s family in less than five years. Bobbi Kristina’s mom, Whitney, died of an overdose in Feb. 2012. Dionne also opened up on what it’s like to deal with such devastating loss.
“It’s not easy that’s for sure,” she continued. “I think it’s because of our faith and strength in our faith,” she explained. “Knowing that Bobbi is now with a much, much bigger and powerful person or thing that we’ll ever know. She’s in much better hands now.”
Bobbi Kristina’s family thanked everyone for their “love and support” in a statement regarding her death. The young girl had been moved to hospice care on June 24 after her condition continued to deteriorate. She spent almost seven months in a medically-induced coma after she was found face down in her bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia home on Jan. 31.
Her family stayed by her side throughout those difficult months, constantly hoping for a miracle. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, 46, is “inconsolable” over her death, and the pain is worse than when Whitney died. How devastating.
Our thoughts go out to Bobbi Kristina’s family and friends during this difficult time.
