After staying by his daughter Bobbi Kristina's bedside in the hospital for months, Bobby Brown made his first public appearance at the Soul Food Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday. Bobby addressed the crowd, saying:
"I wanna thank all of y'all for coming out tonight, for supporting me and my family. Rough times are rough times. Hard times are hard times. I don't know what the hell I'm going through right now, but I'm giving it to God."
His pregnant wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown and their son Cassius were by Bobby's side all day, with Alicia saying they're "doing as well as you'd expect."
They spent the day at the Bobby Brown Foods booth, selling chicken, sausages, and spices.
We're glad to see that Bobby is still carrying on, and wish him a safe trip back to support Bobbi Kristina.
He'll have to leave his daughter's side — again for business — to perform in Australia.

Bobby Brown Is Going On A Short Tour In Australia… But Did Someone Force His Hand To Play These Shows & Leave Bobbi Kristina's Side??
We wouldn't blame him if he didn't want to go.
But there are conflicting reports coming out of this story!
Bobby Brown is apparently going to Australia to play three shows that will happen sometime in May where he'll be joined by Naughty by Nature members Treach and Kay Gee… but one report claimed that Bobby did NOT want to have to go.
Which would make sense since he's currently by his comatose daughter, Bobbi Kristina, in Atlanta.
Those reports claim Bobby Brown HAD to go to Australia because the three original shows, which were scheduled for March and were cancelled, had to be fulfilled because of contractual obligations.
And the promoters in charge of the show were holding him to what he signed despite the family problems he's dealing with.
However, a rep for Bobby Brown claims that Bobby is actually not upset about going to Australia.
Here's what his rep said:
This is so devastating.
While her whole family is hoping for the best, music legend Chaka Khan revealed she isn't really surprised by the situation.
The 62-year-old, who was also a close friend to Whitney Houston, told The Mirror UK:
"I can't say I was shocked. But I was definitely hurt, disappointed. I've been in conversation with the family. Everyone's devastated, everyone. I love Bobbi Kristina, I love Whitney, I love Bobby Brown. I love Cissy — I love them all. But we just have to wait for what happens next. All I want to do is be there for them. I just need to pray."
Chaka has been through her fair share of drug addictions, so when she heard the police found drugs at BK's home, she was disappointed.
The Queen of Funk went on to tell the paper:
"Whitney would be devastated. I wish she was here… You really don't know what this is like for a mother until it happens to you. I think I'm pretty close to feeling what she would have felt and what she's feeling right now, wherever she is."
This whole situation has been super hard on everyone — even those who aren't even close to the family.
Hopefully Krissi can pull through and defy all odds. We continue to send positive thoughts her way.

Cissy Houston Speaks Out About Bobbi Kristina's Current Condition & Reveals She's At Peace With Whatever Is The Outcome
Cissy publicly thanked all of BK's supporters at WBLS FM 107.5 in New York and opened up about her grandaughter's condition, saying:
We didn't think things could get any worse for her family…
The 27-year-old was pulled over on Monday after police officers claimed they could smell marijuana coming from his moving car.
After Jerod was stopped, he allegedly proceeded to give the cops a fake name and birth date, but once he told the truth, it became clear that there was an outstanding warrant out for his arrest.
Unfortunately, this is not a sign of improvement.
Bobbi Kristina Brown has officially left Emory University hospital, and is now currently situated in a rehab facility that is better suited for long-term care in Atlanta.
Before her move, Emory doctors tried to slowly remove life support to see if Bobbi Kristina would respond, but unfortunately she did not. The 22-year-old has been unresponsive ever since she was found face down in a tub on January 31.
Bobby Brown and Pat Houston were spotted carrying Bobbi Kristina's belongings to the new facility where she was moved to on Thursday.
We hope that Bobbi Kristina pulls through, and her family and loved ones continue to be in our prayers!

The first step is admitting you have a problem…
And that's exactly what Nick Gordon did on Wednesday's tell-all episode of Dr. Phil!
Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend and his mother Michelle chatted with the talk show host about the scandal on Friday, but this is the first we're getting to see of it.
While part one of the interview-turned-intervention was strange, to say the least, part two at least gave Nick a chance to take some responsibility for his actions.
In fact, he even went as far as saying that he knows he needs to be rehabilitated!
We guess that's some sort of a silver lining, right?
Ch-ch-check out the continuation of Nick's bizarre behavior (above)!!!
