Two months after Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub, Chaka Khan has opened up about how she and others around her are feeling.
Chaka, who was a close friend of Whitney Houston, has known 22-year-old Bobbi since she was born, and has admitted: “I can’t say I was shocked… But I was definitely hurt, disappointed.”
The 62-year-old has herself fought drug addiction.
It is believed that drugs were found in Bobbi’s home, and that her friend, Maxwell Lomas, has a long history of drug arrests.
Describing her reaction to everything that’s going on, she’s said: “I’ve been in conversation with the family.
“Everyone’s devastated, everyone. I love Bobbi Kristina, I love Whitney, I love Bobby Brown. I love Cissy – I love them all.
“But we just have to wait for what happens next. All I want to do is be there for them. I just need to pray.”
She quietly added: “Whitney would be devastated. I wish she was here.
“You really don’t know what this is like for a mother until it happens to you.
“I think I’m pretty close to feeling what she would have felt and what she’s feeling right now, wherever she is.”
Whitney was found dead in a hotel bath tub following a drugs overdose in 2012. Chaka attended her funeral.
Bobbi was placed in a medically induced coma in February after she was found unconcious in her bathtub.
She was reported to be suffering with “swelling on the brain”, although it is still unclear as to why she fell unconcious at home.
The incident is eerily similar to when her mother was found dead, with police commenting: “Obviously we all know her mum died this very same way.”
It is thought that the young girl’s husband, Nick Gordon, found Bobbi on her stomach in the full bath at 10.25am on Saturday January 31st.
He and a friend tried to revive her but when the ambulance arrived she was rushed to casualty.
Supported by his mother, Michelle, 25-year-old Nick recently opened up on the Dr. Phil Show, sharing that he has tried to kill himself twice since the incident.
“Sometimes they talk, but then they’ll go for months and months without saying a word to each other.”
His mum admitted that her son just couldn’t bare to be away from the 22-year-old starlet, telling the Doc: “He has blamed himself for the condition she’s in. He has said to me many times that he is going to kill himself.
“He tried. He cannot bear not being with Krissy, by her side.”
