Bobby Brown opens up about Bobbi Kristina's death: 'When God calls you, he calls you'

Nick Gordon Says He Didn't Kill Bobbi Kristina but Admits Fighting with Her

Almost two months after her death, Bobby Brown is opening up publicly about losing daughter Bobbi Kristina.

"We prayed and hoped for six months ... for something better to happen," the musician says on the premiere episode of The Real. "But when God calls you, he calls you."

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home on Jan. 31 and passed away in hospice care on July 26. The only daughter of Brown and his ex-wife, late singer Whitney Houston, was 22 years old.

"I'm pretty sure her mother had a part with like, 'Come on, let's get her up here,' " Brown tells the hosts of the new talk show: Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley, in an episode that will air Monday, Sept. 14. Houston died in February 2012 after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"She was not comfortable by herself, I guess," Brown says of Houston on the show. "She just called my daughter with her."

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Bobbi Kristina's death continues, as ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon reportedly moved Tuesday to dismiss a wrongful death suit that alleges he stole from and assaulted Bobbi Kristina and was instrumental in her death.
