Oprah Winfrey ‘supported Whitney’
Whitney Houston’s daughter is allowing Oprah Winfrey to interview her because Oprah “always looked out for” the late singer, it has been claimed.
Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly says Oprah was a good friend to her mother Whitney, who was found dead in the bathroom of the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on February 11.
Bobbi will share her personal memories of her mother on an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter on OWN this Sunday.
Whitney’s sister-in-law Patricia Houston and brother Gary will also speak to the talk show titan on how they are coping with their loss and what happened in the weeks leading up to Whitney’s death.
Bobbi is telling friends Oprah “was loyal to my mom, and never did my mother wrong, or made her look bad. She always looked out for my mum,” a source told TMZ.
Oprah was one of the first to lend support to Bobbi after Whitney died at age 48, sources added.
The 19-year-old is also said to have had the support of a team of people to help her through the grief.
Sources have told Us Weekly that Bobbi is surrounded by loved ones but also needs time by herself.
“She really needs her own space right now to heal, and Cissy knows that,” a source told the site about Bobbi’s relationship with her maternal grandmother.
“Cissy has a team of people helping her through this right now. The goal is to make her feel special and loved.”
It is not known Bobbi’s singer father Bobby Brown is getting to spend time with her after he walked out of Whitney’s funeral due to a seating issue.
The Los Angeles County Coroner is yet to release the cause of the singer’s death but has said there was no sign of foul play or trauma. Sources have told TMZ the office has received phone calls and emails from people claiming to be relatives of Whitney to fish for results. An official from the Coroner’s Office said the investigation is on-going.
