"I do try to keep my ear open to what some of the developments are," she told ABC News today.
"I pray for it to work out the way God will have it to," Bassett added.
She also said she can only hope Brown's family is able to "find a measure of peace with what is really a heart-wrenching situation."
Bassett was happy with the way her film about Houston turned out when it was released last month.
"For me as an artist, as a woman, I had to step out of my comfort zone. It was a story I was intent on telling correctly because of what Whitney meant to the world, what she meant to me and because we are all Whitney. We all make our choices and we all have our dreams and our aspirations," she said. "I was very happy with how it turned out."
