LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Bobby Brown’s sister, Leolah Brown, is speaking out for the first time since Whitney Houston’s death, defending her brother and sending a warning to Bobby & Whitney’s daughter — Bobbi Kristina.
“I am concerned about my niece Bobbi Kristina, yes,” Leolah told Access Hollywood of her 18-year-old niece, who she refers to as “Krissy.” “Krissy is not safe right now. I want to say to Krissy that it’s very, very, very important that she does not trust anybody at this time. Anybody except her father, her grandmother Cissy and myself. And I mean that.
“Right now is the time to just really shut the door,” she continued.
Leolah and her attorney, Reginald Mason, remained unspecific about who may try to harm Krissy.
“There are persons that possibly would want to take advantage of Bobbi Kristina’s fragile state of mind,” Mason claimed.
Leolah claims her brother Bobby is not doing well, but says he is not to blame for Whitney’s demise.
“Bobby has nothing, nothing at all to do with Whitney’s death,” she told Access.
While awaiting toxicology results to determine what killed the singer, Leolah told Access that she has reached out to the Beverly Hills Police Department to make sure they do a thorough investigation.
“I believe Whitney’s death was not accidental. No,” she claimed.
According to Leolah, what then killed the singer?
“My attorney has advised me not to get into that at all,” she told Access. “But, it’s very important to know that she did not just pass away like that. No. And if it’s the last thing that I do, I’m going to find out what truly happened to my sister.”
