Bobbi Kristina Brown's aunt, Pat Houston, has broken her silence on the death of her 22-year-old niece, explaining that the family's assistance came too little, too late.
In a new interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Houston made it clear that her family had every intention of helping Bobbi Kristina fight her personal demons and substance abuse issues. Unfortunately, their efforts were unsuccessful.
"When we really found out that Krissi was in trouble, we were really making plans to do something about it, but it just came a little too late," Houston said.
Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in a bathtub in her Atlanta area home on Jan. 31 and died July 26 after spending months in a medically induced coma and under hospice care.
Houston went on to discuss her relationship with Bobbi Kristina, debunking rumors of a rift between the two.
"Where the world saw that she was angry and mad at me, she was texting me all along," Houston 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.'"
