Daughter won`t repeat my mistakes: Bobby Brown
Los Angeles: Singer Bobby Brown says he trusts his daughter Bobbi Kristina not to get addicted to drugs like he and her mother Whitney Houston did.
The `My Prerogative` singer and Houston have both struggled with drug addiction.
Although 19-year-old Kristina has been forced to deny rumours she has also been abusing illegal drugs, her father believes she is smart enough not to follow in his footsteps, reported MTV online.
"Any parent that has a teenager in their life, they go through things. They go through phases that they might not be doing exactly what you want them to do in life, but they grow out of it, and my baby girl has grown out of it. I trust and believe that she`s smart enough to not go down the same road that maybe I did in the past or her mother did in the past. She`s extremely smart," Brown said.
Kristina is focusing on launching an acting and music career since her mother died of accidental drowning caused by cardiac failure after taking cocaine in February and her father is extremely proud of her.
"That`s my baby girl. She`ll forever be my baby girl. She`s doing what she`s doing, and I`m extremely proud of her. She`s acting and she`s working on music and she`s doing what she has to do to recover from her loss - our loss," he added.
