*Whitney Houston’s former lover, Robyn Crawford, claims in her new book that the late singer’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was a bloody, toothless hot mess in the days before she suffered a similar fate as her mother.
In Crawford’s memoir, “A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston,” she recalls the time Brown showed up to her aunt Pat Houston’s home with her “mouth bleeding, teeth missing, the hood of her car smashed in,” Crawford writes.
As reported by canoe.com, Crawford doesn’t clarify the cause of BK’s injuries but notes that Brown was in a car crash days before she was found nearly lifeless in a bathtub at her home.
The incident prompted Pat Houston to seek out a rehab facility for Brown, Crawford claims. But it was too late.

Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in her bathtub on January 31, 2015. Drugs were said to be the cause of her medical crisis. She slipped into a coma, and was taken off life support six months later. She died July 26, 2015 at age 22.
Crawford also details Bobbi Kristina and Houston’s close relationship in her new memoir. In excerpts obtained by People she writes:
“I know how much that young girl loved her mother and needed her mother. That was all she wanted, always, was her mother and now she was gone.”
“I feel in my heart that Whitney told her daughter what kind of person I am and the depths of our friendship.”
She went on to write, “That rumor — the speculation of our being physical — that rumor had track shoes so there’s no way a young person wouldn’t say, ‘Mom tell me about this.’ I don’t know if Whitney shared that with her daughter, when she was old enough to understand and want to know. I would hope that they had the mother-daughter conversation.”
“I believe that Whitney told her daughter about the love and the care and the bond and the trust that we had. Whitney knew I was there for her.”
Crawford said she tried to reach out to Brown after Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012.
“I would have answered any questions she had, and I would have just listened.”
