The father of Bobbi Kristina Brown spoke to interviewer Robin Roberts for US news show 20/20.

In short preview for the show, Bobby spoke about the similarity between his ex-wife and little girl’s deaths, saying: “The same thing that happened to my daughter, it happened to Whitney.”

Bobbi Kristina was just 22 when she passed away.

The only daughter of the RnB songstress was eerily found unconscious in a bathtub, which lead to her spending six months in a medically induced coma before she tragically died.

Her mother, who had long battled addiction, died three years earlier after she too was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

“The hardest thing I had to do in my life was tell my daughter to let go. My baby’s gone. I thank God I’m still here,” the bereaved father said in the interview, which will be released later this week.

Following the loss of his daughter, Bobby Brown released a statement, which read, “Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honour her memory. Our loss is unimaginable.”

Bobbi Kristina pictured with her parents Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. The couple married in 1992 but eventuality divorced in 2007.

Whitney’s family confirmed the tragic loss through a Facebook post.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July 26 2015 surrounded by her family. She is finally in the arms of God,” the Houston family penned at the time.

“We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

Bobby, who was married to Whitney for 15 years, is expected to talk about everything from his personal losses to his marriage with Whitney and how her addiction affected their relationship.

“I came into the marriage with money, and I left the marriage with nothing,” Bobby remarks in the show’s promo.

The candid chat, which will air in full this Tuesday, comes in light of the release of the 47-year-old’s memoir Every Little Step: My Story, which is set to hit stands later this year.
