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.”
No illegal drugs have been found in the Beverly Hilton hotel room where Whitney Houston died Saturday afternoon, at least not yet, but prescription drugs were present.
According to TMZ website, it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub.
Sources told TMZ that when EMTs arrived Whitney Houston’s body was already removed from the bathtub so it will take an autopsy to determine if she OD’d, drowned or died from some other cause.

Informed sources told the celebrities website that Beverly Hills cops, who were still searching the room at this time, found various pill bottles. There was no evidence that Whitney Houston was drinking alcohol in the room.
Whitney Houston’s body was just removed from the room on a gurney. It will go to the morgue for an autopsy to determine cause of death.
Researchers say airborne traces of illegal drugs could pose a health risk for people as the air pollution does.
Scientists at the Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research in Rome found traces of cocaine and cannabis in the air around dozens of sites in Italy.
Researchers also discovered statistical correlations between cocaine levels and certain types of cancer – and between cannabis levels and mental disorders.
The project’s leader, Angelo Cecinato, was cautious about drawing firm conclusions from his study, but epidemiologist Wilson Compton of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Bethesda, Maryland, told Science Now:
“The researchers did find this link, and it’s worth further exploration.
“Second-hand cigarette smoke wasn’t considered a health threat either, until comparatively recently.”
Angelo Cecinato and his team tested air quality in 59 sites in Italy across various regions in the summer and winter months, screening it for cocaine and cannabinoids, the active ingredient in marijuana.
As well as the links with health problems, researchers found higher airborne concentrations of the drugs in areas where police had made big seizures, where higher than average numbers of people requested treatment and with cocaine levels and certain types of crime.
The results left the team wondering if air-testing for drugs might be a cheaper and more efficient way for authorities to target drug abuse.
Wilson Compton added: “We’re always looking for more accurate ways to gauge the amount of drug use in communities.”
