In the wake of the death of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown flew to Los Angeles.

Bobby Brown was scheduled to perform with New Edition in Nashville Sunday evening, but instead he flew to Los Angeles a day after the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston.

Brown arrived around 9 p.m. at LAX airport with a large entourage of people, according to People.

“Bobby had a blank stare and looked exhausted,” said an observer. “His friends seemed concerned about him and they surrounded him as they walked through the airport.”

Brown’s agent Jeff Strom told People why the singer ditched Sunday’s gig with New Edition to fly to LA:

“His love for his daughter and his daughter being in the hospital. He wants to go be with his daughter.”

Bobbi Kristina, Brown’s 18-year-old daughter with Houston, was hospitalized at Cedars Sinai Medical Center on Saturday night and again on Sunday morning after “having a complete breakdown.” She has since been cleared medically and released.

Here’s Brown’s statement to Extra about his daughter’s condition:

“Today my daughter did visit with doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She has been released and is presently with my family, including her siblings,” said Brown.

He added: “Obviously the death of her mother is affecting her, however, we will get through this tragedy as a family. Again, I ask for privacy during this time.”

The investigation into Houston’s death is still ongoing.
