7/27/15 Update: Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has passed away at only 22-years-old, TMZ reports. After a specialist told the Brown and Houston families that there was no chance of recovery, they decided to withdraw Bobbi Kristina from her medications, after which she died peacefully surrounded by family.
Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31st, and was placed in a medically induced coma after being resuscitated by Paramedics. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is under investigation for her alleged murder. Eerily enough, her mother, Whitney Houston, died of a drug overdose in 2012 while in her bathtub as well. Our thoughts are with the Houston and Brown family during this difficult time.
5/11/15 Update: It was over three months ago that Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub in her Georgia home, and it turns out, she isn’t recovering as well as we all had hoped. According to “Entertainment Tonight,” Cissy Houston said “She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all,” in regards to her granddaughter’s health status. “She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her…I have nothing to do with that. That’s His job. It’s His territory, you know? And I understand it,” she went on to say. The 22-year-old remains in a rehab facility where she had been transferred to in March.
3/26/15 Update: Bobbi Kristina Brown is still in a medically induced coma, her grandmother Cissy Houston told a radio station on Wednesday, adding that there is “still not a great of hope” for her granddaughter. Bobbi Kristina, who is the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub about two months ago. Page Six reports that Cissy Houston told 107.5 WBLS:
We’re praying … I give it to God one time ’cause I know he’s able and I cannot change a thing. So I’m asking everybody to just pray to the Lord, who we know can do something about it. … If he works a miracle, thank God. If it happens the other way, I’m alright.
Bobbi Kristina was recently moved to a new rehabilitation center for care.
3/3/15 Update: Bobby Brown’s family is reportedly shooting a reality show about the tragic circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina Brown’s hospitalization. TMZ reports that three of Bobby Brown’s siblings and their children are filming a reality show together, but that they have not come to the hospital where Bobbi Kristina is still in a coma.
2/26/15 Update: According to CNN, Bobbi Kristina Brown was recently taken off the drugs that kept her in a medically induced coma, however, doctors were forced to put her back on the drugs due to violent seizures that had resulted. This horrible setback is without a doubt disheartening for the family of the Bobbi Kristina Brown, who have remained almost completely silent throughout her condition.
Update: The family decided yesterday not to take her off life support after she showed signs of improvement. According to an interview with Bobby Brown’s sister on Atlanta’s Fox 5 station, Bobbi Kristina reportedly opened her eyes, giving the family hope for recovery.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family has decided to take her off life support tomorrow, which will be the third anniversary of her mother Whitney Houston’s death, TMZ is reporting. The 21-year old reality star was hospitalized at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital after being found in a bathtub in her home on January 31. Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma to improve her chances of recovery. Although the Brown family had remained hopeful, doctors confirmed that her condition would unfortunately not improve.
This tragic scene was eerily similar to that of her mother’s situation, in which Houston was found lifeless in a bathtub from accidental drowning at a Beverly Hills hotel. (Whitney’s death was later found out to caused by a cocaine overdose.) Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother, reportedly wants life support removed on the anniversary of Whitney’s death as a symbolic way to keep Whitney and her only daughter together.
According to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina’s tragic accident is being investigated for foul play, specifically exploring her love interest Nick Gordon. Law enforcement officials explained to TMZ that certain injuries were suspicious, leading them to believe an altercation at taken place in the hour before her death. The investigation is still ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the Brown family.
