Jordin Sparks Felt ‘Sisterly Connection’ with Bobbi Kristina Brown
Jordin, who starred alongside the iconic singer in 2012's Sparkle, shared a touching observation with E! News.
"I have seen Bobbi Kristina throughout the years, just being able to say hi," she said. "I remember seeing her on the red carpet for Sparkle. It was amazing to see the bond they had and shared. You could just tell as soon as [Bobbi and Whitney] were near each other or when they looked at each other, they were always searching for each other in the crowd. If they got separated, they were always looking for each other and I loved that."
Jordin compared her own relationship with Bobbi Kristina to that of sisters.
"I felt kind of like a sisterly connection, but I didn't get to see her very much or very often, but I did let her know, if you ever need anything, just call me," she said. "But my heart breaks for her. I hope that they can pull through and whatever happens, I just hope it's in their highest and best."
According to Jordin, Bobbi Kristina's opinion of her Whitney Houston cover was extremely important. The former American Idol star performed "I Will Always Love You" at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards alongside John Legend.
"I remember getting off the stage and she came back and she was wiping back tears and she had said it was amazing," Jordin said. "If Bobbi said it was okay, then that's all that matters. As long as she thought it was great, that's all that mattered."
After being rushed to the hospital on Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina was put into a medically induced coma. Police reportedly investigated foul play in relation to the accident. Bobbi Kristina's condition remains uncertain.
