Atlanta - Bobby Brown spoke publicly for the first time since Bobbi Kristina's death in July, in an appearance on Fox's talk show The Real.

An emotional Brown said 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.

"If I could have been there two days before, it wouldn't have went down like that."

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."

Wearing a necklace bearing a photo of him and his daughter, Brown said he held out hope for months that Bobbi Kristina would survive.

"We prayed and hoped for six months, you know, for something better to happen," he said. "But when God calls you, he calls you."

His daughter was buried in New Jersey next to her mother.

"I'm pretty sure her mother was. ... had a part with like, 'Come on, let's get her up here,'" he said. "(Houston) was not comfortable by herself, I guess. She just called my daughter with her."
