It was only announced a few days ago that Bobbi Kristina Brown would be giving an exclusive interview to Oprah Winfrey in the wake of her late mother Whitney Houston's death.

And in a preview trailer for the upcoming television interview, the 18-year-old can be seen receiving a comforting hug from the talk show host.

The duo smile as they embrace closely in a clip from the talk, which will be broadcasted on Oprah's Next Chapter airing on Sunday, March 11 at 9pm.

The show will also see Winfrey speak to Houston’s sister-in-law and manager Patricia Houston, and brother Gary Houston.

Winfrey and Houston knew each other well and the chat show star attended the singer's funeral in Newark last month with her family.

A release from the network reads: 'Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered.

'The family also addresses the rumours and speculation surrounding Houston’s death.'

Before the interview at 7 p.m., OWN will re-air its special, Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview, which features the singer’s 2009 interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Winfrey’s own personal memories of the star.

According to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina has told friends: '[Oprah] was loyal to my mum, and never did my mother wrong, or made her look bad. She always looked out for my mum.'

It was during a 2009 interview with Oprah that Bobbi's mother described her father as a 'drug.'

Houston, who was making a music comeback after seven years, told Winfrey that she and Brown took cocaine and marijuana during their marriage.

'He (Brown) was my drug,' Houston added. 'I didn't do anything without him.'

Houston said she was attracted to Brown because he took control of their relationship and had 'a sweet, gentle tenderness.'

'At home, he was very much the father, he was very much the man,' Houston said.

'He was very much in control. I liked that. When he said something, I listened. I was very interested in having someone have that kind of control over me. It was refreshing.'

The singer, who died at the age of 49 on February 11, described her drug use, saying it became 'heavy' after her 1992 movie 'The Bodyguard.'
