Bobby Brown is staying positive about his daughter Bobbi Kristina’s condition.
The former New Edition singer told the audience during his set at the Frankie Beverly concert that Bobbi Kristina is “awake” and that “she’s watching me.”
The happy news was greeted by cheers from the stunned audience.
However, it’s unclear whether Brown was talking about his daughter in the figurative or literal sense as sources close to the family have previously said that the 22-year-old Bobbi has yet to wake up.
When asked for clarification about Brown’s statement, his attorney Chris Brown just acknowledged his awareness of what the singer said but added that “no additional comment will be made at this time.”

Bobbi Kristina is the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. She has been in a medically induced coma since being found face down in her bathtub on Jan.31. Doctors have tried bringing her out of the coma but the attempts have always resulted in seizures.
It’s been an emotional few months for Brown and it appears that it will just keep getting harder. The 46-year-old father has reportedly not left his daughter’s side since the incident and has been the one making the decisions regarding her medical care.
But insiders say that he has yet to make the hardest decision yet – whether to take his daughter off life support or not. Sources close to the family have admitted that Bobbi Kristina has little to no chance of recovery, but Brown is not yet ready to give up on his daughter.
The R&B singer has talked a little about his struggles to his fans during the Soul Food Festival in Los Angeles.
“Rough times are rough times. Hard times are hard times,” he said. “I don’t know what the hell I’m going through right now, but I’m giving it to God.”
