It’s been another rough week for Bobby Brown. As previously reported, the autopsy report for his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was released earlier this week, citing drug intoxication and water immersion as causing her death months later from brain damage and pneumonia.
As you may recall, his only child with the late Whitney Houston died July 2015, at the tender age of 22, after being in a coma for several months. She was found unconscious in a bathtub — the same way her mother was found before she was pronounced dead at age 48 in 2012.
In response, the former New Edition group member, who was supposed to perform at Charleston Jam Fest at the North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center on Friday, March 4, canceled the show at the last minute, according to media reports. This, of course, wasn’t the first time Brown took a break from his tour. A month following Kristina’s hospitalization, the 47-year-old delayed his tour a full month. He later performed in April in Los Angeles and again a month following his daughter’s death, where he thanked audience members for their thoughts and prayers.
Shortly after the release of Bobbi Kristina’s autopsy, the singer released a statement saying, “First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl.”
Meanwhile, his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, who is pregnant with the couple’s third child, paid tribute to Bobbi via Instagram with an angelic photo, writing, “#HBD #bobbikristinabrown #flyhighangel #spreadjoy #familylove #peaceandsernity #daddysgirl #missingyoualways.”
Although Brown is scheduled to perform alongside Keith Sweat, Jagged Edge, and H-Town in Tampa, Florida, in April, there’s been no confirmation of whether or not he’ll resurface for the show. In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Bobbi’s loved ones during this trying time.
