Whitney Houston's hairdresser was left to comfort the star's devastated teenage daughter after the singer was found dead in her Los Angeles hotel suite last month (Feb12).
Tiffanie Dixon was heading to Houston's room at the Beverly Hilton to help her get ready for an appearance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy Awards party on 11 February (12) when she saw the chaos in the suite and was asked to phone for help.
She tells America's Today show, "At that moment, all I could think about was, 'Find someone to help', 'cause I didn't know what was going on exactly at all. Everything just kind of happened so fast. I was due to report to work, and we were doing a party that evening, and I heard something as I was going in the direction where I needed to go, and I was instructed to call for help, and that's what I did."
Dixon reveals she was then left out in the hallway with Houston's teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina, as the drama unfolded, and they ended up comforting each other: "Absolutely, she did (need comforting and) she comforted me. She didn't know what was going on."
She adds in an interview with Dateline, "I did see her (body on the floor), when everything was going on and she (Bobbi Kristina) said, 'Is everything OK with you?' I didn't know what to do... I can't tell her anything, 'cause I don't know exactly what was going on... I wasn't even thinking, really. I was more concerned, like, please let everything be OK... She didn't know what was going on."
