Bobbi Kristina Brown paid tribute to her late mother Whitney Houston on what would have been the singer’s 51st birthday. The only daughter of the iconic singer took to Twitter to honor her mother who passed away in February 2012.
The 21-year-old girl tweeted a touching message along with a photo of a small birthday cake to mark the occasion on Saturday, August 9, “#HappyBirthdaymommy ! #HappyBirthdayWhitney ! #AllAugustAllWhitney #iloveyou ! @nickdgordon @mwhitaker10 #Family.”

Rihanna also paid tribute to the late singer by stepping out wearing a Whitney Houston graphic T-shirt on Saturday. Whitney’s image was printed on the white T-shirt the singer was wearing while having dinner at Gjelina restaurant in Venice, California.
Whitney passed away at the age of 48 at a Beverly Hills hotel. The Grammy winner was found drowning in a bath hours before she was due to attend Clive Davis’ pre-grammy party. Cocaine was found in her system. The hugely successful singer had long struggled with substance abuse.
Following the death of the singer, family members were concerned that Whitney’s struggling daughter was also heading toward a life of addiction. Rumors circulated that Bobbi was going for a rehab.
