Bobby Brown has gotten candid about his grief almost a year after his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, passed away.
She died on July 26 roughly six months after she was found unconscious in the bathtub of her home. She was 22.
Bobby has found relief in writing about his pain for his now highly anticipated memoir Every Little Step: My Story. In an excerpt of the book obtained by Radar Online, he admits that he is “not yet ready” to visit his daughter’s grave site.
“I’m not yet ready to stand there, alive and functioning, knowing my baby’s body is under a pile of dirt. Lifeless. Gone,” he wrote.
Bobbi Kristina is buried at Westfield, New Jersey’s Fairview Cemetery. Her late mother, Whitney Houston, is also buried there. Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012 after an eerily similar incident to Bobbi Kristina. She was discovered unresponsive in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel during the Grammy festivities for that year.
Bobby added that he sympathized with the way his daughter had to grow up.
“As the daughter of two very famous people, it wasn’t always easy for her.”
Bobby went on to write that had he been more present, he believes things would have turned out much different for Bobbi Kristina.
“I just wish I had been there with her and for her in the last few years to help ease her transition to adulthood. Such thoughts will undoubtedly pain me for the rest of my life.”
The memoir hits shelves June 13.
