Bobbi Kristina: Whitney Houston Still With Me in Spirit

Bobbi Kristina tells Oprah Winfrey she can feel her mother’s presence.

A month after her mother, Whitney Houston, tragically passed away in the bathtub of a Los Angeles hotel room, Bobbi Kristina Brown told Oprah Winfrey that she can still hear her mom’s voice talking to her.

In the interview, which aired exclusively on Oprah’s OWN Network on Sunday night, the 19-year-old said the day after Houston’s death was very difficult, but she found comfort after Houston spoke to her.

“I woke up and I heard her say ‘All right, come home now,” Bobbi Kris said of her mother’s advice to return to their Atlanta home. “And when I came back home, I felt humble, I felt OK.”

While Bobbi Kristina, Houston’s only child with ex-husband Bobby Brown, admits she still can’t listen to her mother’s music, but knowing that she is there with her spiritually has been a big relief.

“I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, 'Keep talking to me. I got you,'” said Bobbi Kristina. “She's always with me. I can always feel her. I can always feel her with me. She always asked me, 'Do you need me?' And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn't even know I said it, I said, 'I'll always need you.'”

Though she hasn’t done much in the entertainment world, Bobbi Kristina intends to follow in her mother’s footsteps.

“I have to carry on the legacy," Bobbi Kristina told Oprah. "We're going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing.”

Throughout the special interview, Oprah spoke to other members of Whitney’s family including the singer’s mom, Cissy Houston. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
