Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, lingers near death as her family considers turning off her life support soon. Doctors said there is nothing more they can do and there’s little hope Bobbi Kristina will recover.
“It’s now a matter of when the family wants to let go and accept that she’s pretty much not going to make it,” a source told Fox Feb. 4. “They’ve left it up to the family as to how long they want to keep her alive.”
Experts said Bobbi Kristina likely suffered severe brain damage and the outlook is bleak. Brown, 21, has very little brain activity after suffering oxygen deprivation for two to four minutes.
“Everyone is coming to the hospital to say goodbye,” a family member told People Feb. 5. “Bobby has been crying nonstop since yesterday. We are grieving.”
In a statement, the Brown family denied Bobbi Kristina is brain dead, notwithstanding the grim reality that she has diminished brain capacity and has little chance of recovering. The Brown family also denied rumors they are fighting with Whitney Houston’s relatives.
Cops Found Illegal Drugs in Home
An unconscious Bobbi Kristina was found face down by her friend, Maxwell Lomas, on Jan. 31 in the bathtub of her home in Roswell, Georgia. Lomas called 911 while Bobbi’s boyfriend, Nick Brown, administered CPR.
Lomas has previously been arrested for possession of marijuana and Alprazolam (a.k.a. – Xanax), a prescription anti-anxiety drug. Brown was taken to nearby North Fulton Hospital and was placed in a medically induced coma.
Bobbi Kristina is now breathing with the help of a life support machine, which will likely be turned off soon. Family members insist Bobbi Kristina had not attempted suicide, but she does have a history of drug abuse.
Bobbi Kristina’s father, singer Bobby Brown, said lawyers are investigating the suspicious circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s near-drowning. A police search of her home uncovered evidence of illegal drugs, according to TMZ.
Bobby Brown’s Wife is 4 Months Pregnant
Bobby Brown’s attorneys underscored that Bobbi Kristina is not married to boyfriend Nick Gordon. “We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina,” said Bobby Brown’s attorneys. “To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not, and has never been, married to Nick Gordon.”
Source said Bobby Brown is especially distraught because he just learned that his wife, Alicia Etheredge, is four months pregnant, TMZ reported. Brown, 46, is on the brink of losing daughter Bobbi Kristina just as he is about to welcome another child. Bobby has four other children.
Bobbi Kristina’s mother, superstar Whitney Houston, died of an accidental bathtub drowning in 2012. Whitney, who was 48 when she died, had a history of drug addiction in the years before her death.
Sources said Bobbi Kristina was extremely depressed as the three-year anniversary of her mom’s death was approaching. Whitney Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012.
