Bobby Brown on daughter’s tragic death & domestic violence

Almost three years have passed since Bobbi Kristina Brown’s untimely death. Since then, in tribute to his daughter, her father Bobby Brown and his wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown launched a non-profit that offers help to those experiencing domestic violence.

Brown spoke with Urban View’s (Ch. 126) Karen Hunter to remember his daughter and to spread the word about the organization, The Bobbi Kristina Serenity House. Hunter asked what prompted Brown to start this organization, considering the fact that many people don’t normally associate his daughter’s death with domestic violence. Watch to see his response:

When asked how his daughter’s death has affected him as a person, he said, “I go to sleep thinking about it, I wake up thinking about it.”

Brown continued to encourage domestic violence survivors, whether they be women or men, to speak out and seek help from The Bobbi Kristina Serenity House, which offers 24-hour support services.

“Women have to start talking and speaking up and telling people that they’re being abused,” Brown said. “I think it’s essential to let somebody else know. Don’t just let them see you with a black eye and you telling them that you fell. No, you didn’t fall.”
