Jordin Sparks heartbroken over Bobbi Kristina

Jordin Sparks hopes that Bobbi Kristina Brown is getting the "highest and best" care.

The 25-year-old singer feels a bond with Bobbi because she starred with the 22-year-old's later mother Whitney Houston in 2012 movie Sparkle.

Bobbi remains in hospital in a coma after being found face down in a bathtub of water at her Georgia home at the end of January. Jordin is devastated by what's happened and remains hopeful that Bobbi will recover.

"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 told E! News. "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."

Jordin also spoke about the connection between Bobbi and her late mother, who died after being found submerged in a bathtub in a Los Angeles hotel room in 2012. It was later found that drugs had contributed to her passing.

"I remember seeing her on the red carpet for Sparkle. It was amazing to see the bond they had and shared," Jordin recalled.

"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."

At the Billboard Awards in 2012 Jordin performed Whitney's most famous hit, I Will Always Love You, as a tribute. Afterwards she recalls Bobbi approaching her and crying, but saying she had done a great job.

At the moment how Bobbi ended up in the bathtub is unknown.

Her family, including her father Bobby Brown, have kept a vigil by her side since she was admitted to hospital, but there has also been some drama. The star's partner Nick Gordon has not been allowed to visit, with Bobby announcing to press that Nick and Bobbi were never legally married as they claimed.
