After yesterday's Whitney Houston-centric Today show interview, part two turned this morning to Bobby Brown's on-going relationship with daughter Bobbi Kristina.

According to Bobby, the two share a very open, healthy relationship as he tells Matt Lauer, "I am her father, she talks to me about everything."

When asked if the rumors of Bobbi Kristina's substance abuse were accurate, Bobby said that he was not concerned about that right now. "I know what she is actually doing," he said. "I think people are making assumptions of what my daughter is [because of] how strong she is. People tend to want to control strong willed people."

Given their close relationship, Lauer then asked if Bobbi Kristina was dating her stepbrother, as rumors have alleged. "Nick's a good kid, I have nothing against Nick," Bobby said before being pushed by the host to make a declarative statement that they are not dating.

Bobbi Kristina is a strong girl, according to Brown. "Her mom taught her well. I think we raised her really well. She's fine, she knows her mom is gone and she knows she has to live."
