Whitney Houston's only child, Bobbi Kristina, revealed how she's coping with her mother's sudden passing in an in-depth interview on Oprah's Next Chapter Sunday.
Bobbi gave a glimpse of how close she was with her mom, detailing her last day with the singer, saying that they were together "all night and all day". Bobbi even went as far to say that she closed out the day sleeping "in [Whitney's] arms".
Even as close as they were when Whitney was alive, Bobbi said that she feels her mother's spirit stronger now.
"She's always with me. I can always feel her," said Bobbi, who is currently living in Whitney's Georgia home.
Oprah also spoke to Whitney's sister-in-law, former manager and close friend, Patricia Houston, who revealed that she began fearing for the Grammy winner in the late '90s, years before Whitney's 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer in which she admitted to abusing drugs.
Patricia explained that in Whitney's latter days the singer appeared to have her addictions under control, but Patricia became concerned again two days prior to Whitney's death while at a party in Hollywood.
"There were words back and forth between [Whitney] and a young lady, who I believe was on 'The X Factor,'" Patricia said, referring to Stacy Francis. "I don't know what the initial conversation was. I just know it didn't feel right."
This confrontation led Patricia to usher Whitney out of the nightclub.
After the singer's passing Stacy tweeted, "I deeply regret the events that led to Thursday's misunderstanding, but I respect and love [Whitney] more than I can say."
Plenty of speculation has surrounded what happened the day Whitney died. Patricia clarified that Whitney's assistant Mary was the first to discover the body. Patricia confirmed that Whitney's body was in the bathtub, but she doesn't know how she got there. After she was found, Patricia's brother and Whitney's bodyguard Ray was called into the room. He tried valiantly to resuscitate her, but his efforts were unsuccessful.
"He was so out of breath," said Patricia. "I felt so badly for him."
Whitney Houston died on February 11 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel at 48 years old. The autopsy has been concluded but results are pending toxicology results.
