Grammy-winning singer Cissy Houston has penned an open letter to her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina, expressing her love and letting her know that she will always love her.  Read the letter inside....


Previously, we told you that Bobbi Kristina had been upset with with her grandmother Cissy Houston for penning Remembering Whitney, and the two hadn't spoken in months.

Yesterday, Cissy released an open letter to Bobbi Kristina letting her know that she misses her and only wants what's best. She added that she's not excited about her marrying Nick Gordon, but would never speak in a negative manner about their relationship in public.  Here's her letter......

Dear Krissi,

I love you. My heart is full. I don’t know where to begin.
You may think I don’t understand you and what you’re feeling but remember, Baby, I lost my mom when I was just a child. So, I do know some of the sadness and loneliness of your life since your mom passed away.

Although I know her spirit is with you always, I cry with you and for you. I grieve with you and for you … for all of the days and nights you need to tell her something or ask her advice or just hear her voice … and she’s not there. For all of the times when you need to put your head in her lap or feel her arms around you and she’s not there … For the good and happy times you want to share with her; for the fun and laughter you enjoyed together, but she’s not there … for every day and every night you just miss her … I know.

She was your mom and she was my child and Krissi, I loved her too, more than you might imagine. I know you were upset that I wrote my book, “Remembering Whitney," but I hope one day you’ll read it and understand that I just wanted to let the world see some of My Nippy—the sweet, friendly, loving little girl with the extraordinary beauty and boundless talent, who grew into the superstar and musical icon the world saw. I want people to know—fans and critics and ordinary people alike—Nippy was a whole person, and like all of us, she was good and bad AND she was my joy!

Krissi, all I want for you is your good health and your happiness. I want you to have a good life that you can be proud of. Do I want you to get married in the near future? No, I don’t. I think you’re too young and I wish you’d wait. But that’s because I’m Grandma. I’m supposed to worry about you. I’m supposed to wonder If Nick or ANY man is good enough for you, My Baby’s Baby. I’m not angry with Nick and I don’t think, nor did I ever say anything hurtful about him to anyone. I have NEVER publicly commented on your personal life and I don’t intend to. So in the future when you read or hear that Cissy Houston said this or Cissy Houston said that, be confident in the knowledge that it isn’t true.

I try to believe that when your mother passed away the world decided that you belong to them as she did. I’m trying very hard to trust that people who make comments or offer their opinions about you are sincere in their desire for you to be happy. I can only hope they come to realize the best they can offer you is their prayers.

Krissi, as many years as I’ve lived and as many experiences as I’ve had I know I don’t have all of the answers. I do know this, Baby Girl: God’s got you and so do I.
With all my love,



You can feel the pain and heartbreak in Cissy's words.  We hope that this will lead Bobbi Kristina to put their differences aside and reach out to her.

Ms Cissy, give Krissy a

Ms Cissy, give Krissy a moment to deal with her pain. I really don't think she's angry with you, it's her pain and the love she had for her mother. I wish she would take a moment to read your story, because I did and really got to see what Whitney live and dealt with in her life. I got what you wanted people to know about your daughter, because she was a true gift from God. I seen Whitney in 1993 and that was the best concert I've ever seen in my life. Love the gift not her battle. One day Krissy will see your love for your daughter was real just like her love is real.

I am always suspicious of

I am always suspicious of this "open letter" business. This is what people do to make themselves look better and get some publicity. If she really cared, call the girl or mail her the letter privately.

Praying for them both. If BK

Praying for them both. If BK keeps her faith, stay positive, and listen to her heart she will be fine. Grandma's got her back regardless. I dont think she is trying to control her, just want what she feels is best. Again, I pray for the best for them all.

This is sad because Cissy is

This is sad because Cissy is getting up there in age and she seems more frail since Whitney's death. God forbid, if Cissy dies, BEFORE Krissy makes peace with her then Krissy will be haunted by it forever. When people are gone, petty dis-agreements, will be small and forgotten. Krissy, take it from all of us who have lost our grandmothers, it is in your BEST interest to spend as much time with your grandmother while you can. ***wiping tears***

Why are they so adamant about

Why are they so adamant about controlling this girl? She's going to make her mistakes just like the rest of us. Let her have her life. After living with Bobbi and Whitney, I can imagine she knows right from wrong!

If Whitney didn't listen to

If Whitney didn't listen to Cissy, why would Bobbi? Cissy Houston is about as effective as Katherine Jackson, in other words not effective at all.

yeah but that still not going

yeah but that still not going to stop us from saying what we feel as grandmothers and mothers god bless them

I know. I'm both so I really

I know. I'm both so I really know how she feels. I had to let go and let GOD and HE did the miraculous. They are a faith based family. She's having a "wilderness" experience, but she will be alright in the end.

Cissy, she's grown. Give it

Cissy, she's grown. Give it to GOD and let him handle her. She will be alright. Sometimes if we think back to when we were our kids and grand kids age and the dumb stuff we did and we are still here to tell it, then you'll know they'll be ok too. You can't control her. I know how you feel though.
