In Her Own Words - After the passing of her famous mother Whitney, Bobbi Kristina Brown was thrust into the spotlight while she grieved. Over the next three years, the public saw the young woman attempt to follow her dreams of acting and singing but also suffer privately in an allegedly abusive relationship and growing increasingly estranged from her family.
