Bobby Brown: 'Bobbi Kristina Is Doing Much Better'

Upon hearing the tragic news of her mother's death, Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized after having an emotional breakdown. But according to her father, Bobby Brown, the 18 year-old has been “doing much better.”

He said in a statement: “We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother's death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected."

After being taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Bobbi was released to family.

"Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her," Brown said on Monday. "However we will get through this tragedy as a family."

According to RadarOnline's sources, Bobbi was hospitalized after she "tried to ease the pain of losing her mother by having a few alcoholic drinks. She was distraught, on the verge of a complete breakdown. Not knowing what to do, members of her mother's entourage tried to calm her down with a sedative. The two were an unfortunate mix, and she ended up passing out."

Meanwhile, TMZ is reporting that Bobby Brown is not invited to Whitney's funeral. The site reports:

“Sources close to Bobby tell us ... people connected to the Houston family have reached out to Bobby to warn him that he shouldn't attempt to attend the funeral because the family isn't fond of him.”

The sources also add that Bobby wants to attend the funeral in order to support Bobbi Kristina. But Brown's statement today seems to conflict with reports that the singer hasn't been allowed to see his daughter:

“Sources close to Bobby tell us he hasn't connected with Bobbi Kristina since arriving in L.A. Sunday night -- despite placing several phone calls and making an attempt to physically see her ... early this morning. We're told Brown was turned away by Whitney's family and friends ... who are caring for BK at a home in the Los Angeles area.”
