London: Bobby Brown has dismissed rumours that his daughter is planning to adopt her late mother Whitney Houston`s last name in a bid to distance herself from her father.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, is currently throwing herself into acting and singing to take her mind off the tragic death of her superstar mother earlier this year.

She is rumoured to be planning a name change to launch her career in the spotlight.

However, Bobby Brown is adamant his teenaged daughter will not change her name.

"She can`t change her last name, her name is her name. She`ll forever be known as Bobbi Kristina Brown. There`s no changing that, there`s no taking that back," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
