Close family friend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, Tyler Perry, has shared a emotional video documenting her life following her unexpected death
Actor Tyler Perry, 45, has shared an emotional tribute video on Facebook documenting the life of close friend, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
The heartbreaking video was produced by Tyler and was played at Bobbi Kristina’s private funeral after she died on July 26th this year, just three years after her mother Whitney Houston’s sudden death.
Watch the video here:
The 22 year-old was rushed to hospital when she was found face-down in a bathtub in January at her Atlanta home, which she shared with her ‘husband’ Nick Gordon.
Although the autopsy did not reveal any obvious cause of death, it has been reported that Bobbi suffered serious brain damage and spent six months in a medically induced coma. She was sent to Peachtree Christian Hospice, Georgia, in June, where she tragically died.
The video features childhood photos of the star with her parents Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, with family and friends, and with Nick. It is played with the emotional 1996 ballad ‘You Will Be Loved’ which is sung by her late mother, Whitney.
The three-minute montage begins with a quote from Bobbi before her death: ‘I hope you feel my love, pain, beauty, agony at times, blessings all the time. No one understands me. And I don’t expect them to, but I will try to spread my love and my story through words and this blessing of a powerful voice mom has given me.’
Tyler Perry released the video to share with fans. Alongside it he said: ‘The Houston estate asked if I would share this tribute that I put together for Bobbi Kristina’s private funeral. On behalf of the Brown and Houston families, we would all like to thank you for your prayers and support. God bless.’
Tyler frequently visited Bobbi Kristina during her time in hospital. When she died he wrote on Twitter: ‘I’m a writer with no words…Bobbi Kris.’
