Bobby Brown: Bobbi Kristina and I "Will Get Through This Tragedy as a Family"

USMagazine, Sunday, February 12, 2012, 5:01pm (PST)

Bobbi Kristina Brown needs her father more than ever.

After a brief, stress-releated check-in, the late Whitney Houston's 18-year-old's daughter has been been released from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles -- and her father, Bobby Brown, is en route to Los Angeles to be by her side.

Bobby, 43, canceled a Sunday concert gig with New Edition in Nashville, Tennessee, and boarded a flight back to Los Angeles.

UPDATE: Brown released a statement to Extra regarding the situation. "Today my daughter did visit with doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She has been released and is presently with my family, including her siblings," he said."Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her, however, we will get through this tragedy as a family. Again, I ask for privacy during this time."

The "My Prerogative" singer lost it onstage Saturday night at a show in Southaven, Miss., hours after ex-wife Houston was pronounced dead in her hotel room in Beverly Hills.

"Just say a prayer for my daughter, say a prayer for her mother, and if you find the time please say a prayer for me because I am going to need it," Brown told the crowd.

His daughter is having a "total breakdown," one source told Us. "She is freaking out, uncontrollably sobbing. We thought she was trying to kill herself. Everybody is worried."

An autopsy on Houston's body has been completed, but the results have been withheld as Houston's death investigation continues.
