My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better, Bobby Brown said in a statement to ABC News on Tuesday. 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.
She was taken out of the Beverly Hilton in a stretcher and treated at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her. However we will get through this tragedy as a family, Bobby Brown told People magazine.
Houston's family members confirmed that the family does not want Brown to attend, however, they will not stop him because he is Bobbi Kristina's father, reported ABC. Bobbi Kristina is Brown's only child with Houston, although he has five other children.
