“She literally is an angel. I saw her hurt, I saw her cry. We held each other through that”: words of late Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina who on Sunday night joined Oprah for an interview.
Speaking out for the first time since her mother’s death, she said she was “doing as good as I possibly can”.
Bobbi Kristina, who was recently named Houston’s sole heir, credited her family and God for helping her cope since her mother’s death on 11 February at the age of 48.
“It comes in waves. One moment I can be happy and laughing, but then it comes over me. It’s my mom,” she said. “She’s always with me. Her spirit is strong, it’s a strong spirit. I feel her pass through me all the time.”
She also hinted at a singing career during the interview saying: “I have to carry on the legacy. We’re gonna do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing. It’s a lot of pressure but she prepared me for it”.
On the public perception of her mother and her lifestyle Bobbi Kristina who plans to change her name to Kristina Houston said: “They don’t know who she was. Everything people are saying about her – all that negativity, it’s garbage. In reality, I know who she was. Her family knows who she was.”
