According to the father, who is in pain, there are no words to explain how he feels. He asked that the family’s privacy be respected at this trying time in their lives, adding that there will be no further comment.

According to one of his friends, Karey Graves, Bobby Jr was ill before his death and had even called her, saying he feared he wasn't going to make it. The friend said he was coughing 'intensely' during the call and seemingly had a heavy cold. He was pronounced dead on Wednesday, November 18.

Although it is unclear the circumstances surrounding his death, police say no foul play is suspected. On Thursday afternoon, Los Angeles Police Department detectives were seen looking at CCTV footage at the apartment complex where they were joined by Bobby.

The tragic death comes five years after Bobby's daughter with Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, was found lifeless in a bath. Kristina's death was eerily similar to that of her mother Whitney, who was also found to have drowned in a bath of a hotel.
