Pat Houston has remained out of the spotlight since the death of her niece Bobbi Kristina Brown in August. But in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Pat opened up about her relationship with Bobbi Kris and the heartbreaking details of the months before Bobbi Kris' tragic hospitalization and death!
Pat said that the Houston and Brown families knew that Bobbi Kristina was in serious “trouble” and were trying to take steps to help her before her near-drowning in January. "When we really found out that Krissy was in trouble, we were really making plans to do something about it," Pat said. She added that they wanted to send Bobbi Kris to a rehab facility in California, however she admitted that the rehab plan "came too late.”
Pat also shared her take on Bobbi Kris’ troubled relationship with Nick Gordon, who is currently facing a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina’s estate.
Pat said she took out a restraining order against Gordon in 2014 due to his erratic behavior and threats that he posted on social media. But she said that the restraining order only led to more issues with herself and Bobbi Kristina since she “didn't understand it.”
"Where the world saw that she was angry and mad at me, she was texting me all along," Pat said. "I really tried to show her that I'm going to do this to let you know that you don't have to be afraid of anything. I got you." She added, “External attraction can really cause problems."
Pat said that she is still struggling to come to terms with Bobbi Kris' death and knows what she would tell her if she had the chance to. "You have to love yourself," Pat said. "You have to call on people and not allow someone to divide you and then conquer you."
And when it comes to the memoir that Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, is writing, Pat said she sees no issue with Bobby telling his own story if that helps him cope with the loss of his daughter. "I don't really judge when it comes to that, you know? It could be something that could be very healing for him," Pat said. "You really never know what a person is going through so if he feels that he wants to write, he'll do it. But the only thing is you have to be very truthful. If it's good or bad, you have to own it."
