Former 'Being Bobby Brown' star seeking legal custody of daughter
UPI News Service, 09/01/2007
Singer Bobby Brown was in a California court this week as he tries to gain legal custody of his 14-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
The former New Edition star said after Friday's Orange County court hearing that he was prompted to begin custody proceedings against his ex-wife, pop star Whitney Houston, by a severe longing to be reunited with his daughter, People magazine reported.
"I miss watching her sleep, making her laugh, everything. It's the simple things," Brown said. "She looks like me - it's like looking in the mirror. The goal is to see her a lot more and to be involved in the decision-making in her life, the places she goes, the people she hangs out with. All of that."
