Clive Davis on Bobbi Kristina Brown: 'It's Heartbreaking'

Record exec saddened to see family go through pain again.

Published February 6, 2015

Clive Davis, known most for bringing the late Whitney Houston to stardom, is gearing up for his annual pre-Grammy gala. While he is usually asked about the long roster of celebrity attendees and performers at the event, the music exec was, instead, bombarded with questions about Houston's hospitalized daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who has been fighting for her life.

"It's been heartbreaking to see the Houston family in such pain again," Davis told Billboard. "I certainly offer my continued support."

This remains an eerily somber time for both Davis and the Houston family as the "I Look to You" singer passed away just hours before this same event three years ago. In another odd parallel, Brown, like her famous mother, was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home.


While some reports have indicated that the Houston and Brown families have gathered to bid their final goodbyes to Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown's lawyer denied the reports. He said in a statement on Thursday (Feb. 5), "If we issued a statement every time the media published a false report regarding this matter, that's all we would be doing 24 hours a day... This is false."

Though Davis did not divulge any further details on the 21-year-old's condition, he did mention that he is in touch with Houston's sister-in-law, Pat Houston, and asked that everyone respect the family's privacy during this time. 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.
