After a long fight, Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away.
Before Bobbi's life came to a tragic end, E! News was able to sit down with one of her closest friends to share what life was like for the aspiring singer. What she revealed may surprise some.
Three weeks before she was found unconscious in the bath, Bobbi phoned one of her best friends, Alex Reid.
She was distraught and scared, and was hiding from her live-in boyfriend, Nick Gordon. Her refuge of choice—inside her deceased mother's closet.
"She was sobbing. Nick had hit her and she was scared," explains Alex, recalling the conversation with Krissi in an exclusive interview with E! News. "She was very upset. She didn't know what to do. It was as if she didn't have anyone else to turn to. It was heartbreaking."
