Bobby Brown to receive proclamation for domestic violence center dedicated to his late daughter Bobbi Kristina


ABC/ Rick RowellThree years after the death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown is being honored Monday for his plans to build a domestic violence shelter in her name.

South Fulton, Georgia, Mayor Bill Edwards will present a proclamation to the singer, People.comreports. The shelter will be a component  of the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House, a non-profit organization founded by Brown.

Bobbi Kristina passed away July 26, 2015 at the age of 22 after being in a coma for six months. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was found “legally responsible” for her death in a civil case.  

“I don’t think I’ll ever get over it,” Brown said of his daughter on Friday, while promoting an upcoming BET biopic about his life. “I think about her every day but with the grace of God, I’m able to get through my day. With the grace of my kids and my wife, I‘m able to get through the day.” 

At that same event on Friday, Brown denied ever being violent with Bobbi’s mother, his then-wife, Whitney Houston.  He dismissed as “wrong” the public records that show that in 2003, he was arrested and charged with battery under Georgia’s domestic violence law after an altercation with the late singer.
