Bobbi Kristina Brown
The daughter of music royalty, Bobbi Kristina Brown was destined for a life in the public eye. She was born on March 4, 1993 in Livingston, NJ to global pop icon Whitney Houston and R&B hitmaker Bobby Brown. The young Brown grew up in the shadows of her parents' highs and lows, both in their entertainment careers and personal lives. While her mother gave the world classic hits such as "I Will Always Love You" (1992) and was regarded as the greatest voice of her generation, Brown's father was often criticized for helping her mother change from a "good girl" into a troubled woman who battled alcohol and drug addiction. Brown made her recording debut at six years old on Houston's 1999 single "My Love is Your Love," which included a snippet of her vocals. In 2005, her family starred on the Bravo reality series "Being Bobby Brown," which focused on her parents' tumultuous relationship, but also provided a glimpse into Brown's loving relationship with her mother. After 14 years of marriage, her parents divorced in 2007, and her mother was given custody of her. The split did little to clean up her mother's act, however, and even though Houston made several comeback attempts, her personal struggles eventually took their toll.
