ATLANTA — Bobby Brown says he believes things would have turned out differently for Bobbi Kristina Brown if he had been with his daughter days before she was found unresponsive in her home in suburban Atlanta.

Brown was to speak publicly for the first time since Bobbi Kristina's death in July, appearing on Fox's talk show "The Real," which airs Monday. He became emotional several times in video clips released in advance.

The 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina died in hospice care July 26. She was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub Jan. 31.

Bobbi Kristina was the only daughter between Brown and the late Whitney Houston. Brown says he thinks Houston was ready for their daughter to be with the singer "in heaven."

Brown says he prayed and hoped for months that Bobbi Kristina would survive.
