Cissy Houston to Bobbi Kristina: ‘All I Want For You is Good Health And Happiness’
Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy pens an open letter to estranged granddaughter Bobbi Kristina months after her book Remembering Whitney: My Story of Love, Loss and the Night the Music Stopped created a divide between the two.
Growing apart since the “I Will Always Love You” singer’s death, Bobbi Kristina regarded Cissy’s portrait of her mother in the book released in late January as “disrespectful” as it referenced her mother’s drug abuse, rumored same-sex affairs, and turmoil with ex-husband Bobby Brown. In an open letter released Wednesday (July 31), Cissy tells Bobbi, nicknamed “Krissi,” that she hopes “one day you’ll read [the book] and understand that I just wanted to let the world see some of My Nippy.” Cissy also addressed her engagement to Nick Gordon.
“Krissi, all I want for you is your good health and your happiness,” she writes. “Do I want you to get married in the near future? No, I don’t. I think you’re too young and I wish you’d wait. But that’s because I’m Grandma. I’m supposed to worry about you. I’m supposed to wonder if Nick or ANY man is good enough for you. My Baby’s Baby.”
