Bobby Brown has just landed in Los Angeles.
After skipping a New Edition concert in Nashville, Brown made a beeline to the airport to get back to daughter Bobbi Kristina. The 18-year-old was briefly hospitalized with an anxiety attack Sunday, a day after mom Whitney Houston's tragic death.
And Brown is determined to help her cope.
"Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her, however, we will get through this tragedy as a family," he said in a statement to E! News. "Again, I ask for privacy during this time."
A throng of press gathered at LAX for the arrival of Brown. The singer, clad in a blue-and-gray hoodie, was accompanied by fiancée-manager Alicia Etheridge. He and his entourage quickly powered through the scrum to an awaiting vehicle. Brown didn't make any comments but appeared visibly upset.
Bobbi Krisitna, the only child of Houston and Brown, has been staying with Brown's other children in Los Angeles following her discharge.
She was in the Bevery Hilton when her mom was found unconcious in her hotel room and pronounced dead shortly afterward.
There has been a "security hold" put on Houston's autopsy results, while Beverly Hills police and the Los Angeles coroner continue to investigate the death of the 48-year-old icon. Officials did confirm Houston was found in hotel bathtub and that there was no sign of trauma.
