Bobby spoke about Whitney and Bobbi Kristina in an interview

Bobbi Kristina died at the age of 22 after she was found unconscious in a bathtub, spending six months in a medically induced coma before she tragically passed away. Her mother Whitney, who had long battled addiction, died three years earlier after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

In the emotional interview, which will released in full on 7 June, the R&B singer said: "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."

At the time of Bobbi Kristina's passing, her father released a statement to Entertainment Tonight, writing: "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.
