Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina were “amazingly close” says Jawn Murray. The journalist interviewed the mother-daughter duo on several occasions and acknowledged their bond when recently asked about Houston by FOX News. Murray states, “They had a relationship that really resembled the relationship that Whitney Houston had with her own mother, Cissy Houston. Whitney loved her daughter. Bobbi Kristina was her only child and her pride and joy. Because of that, she treasured her.”
Although Whitney and Bobbi’s father divorced after fourteen years of marriage, Jawn says that the former couple remained civil for their daughter’s sake. As Murray explains, “Let me tell you, after Bobby and Whitney’s divorce, they had a functioning, healthy, blended family. Less than a week ago, Bobby, his girlfriend Alicia, their new child, Whitney and Bobbi Kristina were all photographed having a family dinner. [Brown and Houston] still liked each other as people, and got along very well for the sake of Bobbi Kristina.”
Whitney Houston died on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Bobbi Kristina was her and ex-husband Bobby Brown’s only child together.
