Atlanta: Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is on a ventilator and in intensive care, a source close to the family said. She was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub full of water at her Roswell, Georgia, home two days ago.
Brown, 21, was placed in a medically induced coma and the status of her brain function won’t be known until the sedatives are reduced.
She is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, “we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time,” the Houston family said, thanking her supporters.
A source close revealed on Monday that Brown is in “really bad shape.”
Everyone is “hoping for the best, preparing for the worst,” and “praying for a miracle,” the source said.
Nobody knows what caused Brown’s unresponsiveness, but police consider it a medical incident at this time. She said investigators had found nothing to indicate it was drug- or alcohol-related. The incident report referenced a drowning.
Police had been to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s residence recently. Somebody reported a fight there January 23, but nobody answered the door and officers found no evidence of an altercation, Holland said.
Almost three years ago, Whitney Houston her mother was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel near Los Angeles, hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party. A coroner ruled her February 11, 2012, death an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
Brown is her only child.
