Bobby Brown says he trusts his daughter Bobbi Kristina will not make the same mistakes he did.
Bobby Brown, 43, and Whitney Houston have both struggled with drug addiction and although their daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has been forced to deny rumors she has also been abusing illegal drugs.
The singer believes his daughter is ”smart enough” not to follow in his footsteps.
Bobby Brown told MTV: ”Any parent that has a teenager in their life, they go through things. They go through phases that they might not be doing exactly what you want them to do in life, but they grow out of it, and my baby girl has grown out of it. I trust and believe that she’s smart enough to not go down the same road that maybe I did in the past or her mother did in the past. She’s extremely smart.”

Bobbi Kristina Brown is now focusing on launching an acting and music career since her mother died of accidental drowning caused by cardiac failure after taking cocaine in February and her dad is extremely proud of his daughter.
Bobby Brown said: ”That’s my baby girl. She’ll forever be my baby girl. She’s doing what she’s doing, and I’m extremely proud of her. She’s acting and she’s working on music and she’s doing what she has to do to recover from her loss – our loss.”
While father and daughter have a difficult relationship, Bobby Brown has denied reports that Bobbi Kristina wants to ditch the surname Brown.
Bobby Brown said: ”She can’t change her last name, her name is her name. She’ll forever be known as Bobbi Kristina Brown. There’s no changing that, there’s no taking that back.”
Bobby Brown has dismissed rumors that his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is planning to adopt her late mother Whitney Houston’s last name in a bid to distance herself from her father.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, is currently throwing herself into acting and singing to take her mind off the tragic death of her mother on February 11.
Bobbi Kristina Brown was rumored to be planning a name change to launch her career in the spotlight.

However, Bobby Brown is adamant his daughter will not change her name.
“She can’t change her last name, her name is her name. She’ll forever be known as Bobbi Kristina Brown. There’s no changing that, there’s no taking that back,” contactmusic.com quoted Bobby Brown as saying.
Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown has released a new song titled Don’t Let Me Die, a tribute to his former wife.
Debuting the track on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Bobby Brown, 43, appeared emotional as he sang through the lyrics, all whilst wearing a pair of sunglasses onstage.
In the track Bobby Brown seemingly admits some kind of wrong doing, singing how he “messed up pretty bad”.
“I guess I messed up pretty bad … I didn’t know who you were … I didn’t know what we had. Now I’m stuck living in the past …trying to get the pieces back … but I guess now you’re gone,” he sang.
“I didn’t realize that every breath I took was from you … You were my air.”

The new track will be featured on Bobby Brown’s new album The Masterpiece, which will be released on June 5.
It is the first album he has recorded since his 1997 LP Forever.
It comes after Bobby Brown hit back at claims last month that he was responsible for introducing his former wife to the drugs, which played a part in her untimely death.
“I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney,” Bobby Brown told The Today Show’s Matt Lauer.
“I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.”
He said drugs were a part of the singer’s life “way way before” they got together. Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown married in 1993 and had daughter Bobbi Kristina, now 19-years-old, before divorcing in 2007.
Bobby Brown added: “It’s just unexplainable how one could, [say that I] got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone.”
After 14 years, Bobby Brown comes out with a new album, The Masterpiece, because he has spent so much time trying to get his life on track.
Now on tour with bandmates New Edition, Bobby Brown, 43, says he is ready to return to his solo career with the album The Masterpiece, due out June 5.
“It’s what I’ve been through throughout my life, and just trying to heal myself through my music,” Bobby Brown said in a recent interview.
The Masterpiece is Bobby Brown’s first album in 14 years. He was a multiplatinum star with New Edition and later developed his solo career. But his well-documented battle with drugs and his legal woes led to his musical decline. His turbulent marriage to Whitney Houston further eroded his image.

In a recent interview with the Today show’s Matt Lauer, Bobby Brown denied that he got his late ex-wife addicted to drugs. Whitney Houston’s career was derailed by her drug use, which came to the public’s attention during her marriage to Bobby Brown. The superstar drowned in February in Beverly Hills, California; her death was complicated by heart disease and cocaine use, according to authorities.
“The Matt Lauer interview was just for me to clear the air about what everyone was feeling about my ex-wife’s death,” the singer said.
Although he was arrested for DUI in March, Bobby Brown insists he has been drug-free for more than seven years. He said his attempt to get his life in order is part of the reason why the album took so long to make.
“When you’re working on yourself, you have to really concentrate on working on yourself and it takes a back seat to what you want to do and what I’m gonna do,” Bobby Brown said.
Bobby Brown says The Masterpiece, which he started working on last year, is “the best album I’ve done so far”.
“But I’m going to do better in the near future,” he said.
“I just want to get back to what I do, which is entertainment, and this is the start to me getting back to what I want to do.”
Bobby Brown is engaged to his manager, Alicia Etheridge, with whom he has a young son. He also has other older children, including 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina, his only child with Whitney Houston.
Bobby Brown said he and Alicia Etheridge plan a private wedding, and described his life as content.
“I’m happy right now in my life, I’m comfortable with who I am,” he said.
“It’s just better.”
Bobby Brown will marry his two-year long fiancée Alicia Etheridge in Hawaii on the weekend of June 15th.
Bobby Brown, 43, and his fiancée Alicia Etheridge – who have been engaged for two years and have a son Cassius, who will turn three later this month – will tie the knot in Honolulu on the same weekend he performs on the island with his band.
According to celebrity website TMZ, the New Edition musician will also fly out some of his family and friends to witness the ceremony he has dubbed his “big day”.
It is doubtful whether his estranged daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, – his only child with former wife Whitney Houston – will attend.

Although Bobby Brown has been engaged to Alicia Etheridge for two years, it was recently claimed he and Whitney Houston – who died in a Beverly Hills hotel room in February – had been planning to remarry in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas with Bobbi Kristina as their only witness.
Author Derrick Handspike – who wrote Bobby Brown’s biography – said: “Bobby told me, <<Whitney and me are getting married again>>.
“They were planning a small wedding, probably in Las Vegas with just the two of them and their daughter Krissi. Bobby told me, <<The world may have thought we were history, but the reality is we were never really apart. We’ve never stopped loving each other>>.
“After his dad’s funeral in Boston in December he flew to Atlanta. For the next week Bobby holed up at Whitney’s home, where they rekindled their romance and their intimate relationship. They slept together in Whitney’s bedroom and talked about what kind of wedding they’d have.”
A video showing Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown smoking pot out of a bong while partying with friends last year splashed online this week from the National Enquirer.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family members were said to be worried about the young daughter spiraling out of control after the loss of her mother and once the video was shown, reports begin to ask if she was out of control.
A family friend confides to RadarOnline that Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, is having some wild times.

The 911 call made when Whitney Houston’s body was discovered was released this week, which can’t have been easy for Bobbi Kristina.
“She’s self-medicating to deal with her heartbreak and it’s only making things worse,” explains the source.
“She’s on a self-destructive track and will end up just like her mother if she doesn’t find help.
“She desperately needs rehab and therapy, but she doesn’t want to hear that,” adds the insider, noting that a Houston family intervention had failed.
