Bobby Brown reacted to the release of daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy report on Friday--the day she would have celebrated her 23rd birthday.

Bobbi Kristina Brown died in July after lingering in a coma since late January.

E! News obtained a statement issued by Bobby Brown in light of the autopsy report.

"First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl," he said. "For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter's autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family."

Brown cancelled a concert date following the release of his daughter's autopsy report.

Bobby Brown's attorney also issued a statement regarding their client and the release of Bobbi Kristina's autopsy report.

"Yesterday we were informed that two news affiliates were granted access to the autopsy of Bobbi Kristina Brown. While this action is unsettling, we will continue in our efforts in the civil lawsuit and the criminal investigation," Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC said in the statement.

"Bobby Brown has had to be strong and mourn his loved ones in a fashion that is foreign to most people. So public, so raw, with apparently no end in sight," the statement continues. "Hopefully public indictments and prosecution will lead to private healing and closure for Bobby Brown and his family."

Bobby Brown has long believed that Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is responsible for his daughter's death. He wouldn't allow Nick Gordon to visit Bobbi Kristina during her hospitalization. Both the Brown and Houston families prohibited him from attending her funeral.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner said on Friday morning that Bobbi Kristina died from "Lobar pneumonia, caused by Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and water immersion combined with mixed drug intoxication after being found unconscious in her townhouse's bathtub."

Bobby Brown and his family members, as well as those on Whitney Houston's side of the family, are awaiting further investigation in hopes all their questions about Bobbi Kristina Brown's untimely death may one day be answered.
