Although he was due to take the stage in Nashville on Sunday night, Bobby Brown instead flew to Los Angeles the 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. "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."

Asked why Brown decided to leave his tour with New Edition to fly to L.A., agent Jeff Allen told PEOPLE, "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," sources told PEOPLE. She has since been cleared medically and released.





In his first official comments about the his ex-wife's death, Brown told PEOPLE in a statement that he was "deeply saddened." After news broke Saturday, the R&B singer, who was married to Houston until 2007, broke down in tears on stage during a concert in Mississippi. "I love you, Whitney," he said from the stage.

The investigation into Houston's death is still ongoing.
