Bobby Brown has broken his silence after the tragic death of his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. "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 honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable," the entertainer told E! News in a statement Monday. "We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."

Funeral plans have yet to be announced.

"Yesterday Bobbi Kristina Brown took her place in heaven," the New Edition singer's lawyer also said in a statement Monday. "Krissy fought to get well for months. However, she has succumbed to her injuries."

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31, nearly three years after her mother, Grammy Award winner Whitney Houston, was found dead in a bathtub. Bobbi Kristina was place in a medically induced coma soon after, and in June, she was transferred to hospice care as her health "continued to deteriorate," her aunt, Pat Houston, said in a statement to E! News at the time.

In spite of their differences, the Brown and Houston families rallied around Bobbi Kristina in the last months of her life.

"Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family," the Houston family told E! News in a statement late Sunday. "She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."
