Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown on Ventilator, Father Bobby Brown by Her Side
A source close to the family tells ET that her father Bobby Brown, husband Nick Gordon and others have been advised to prepare for the worst and that the longer the 21-year-old remains in the coma, the more likely it will be that she will not regain consciousness. They are praying for her recovery but have also started to discuss how they would handle funeral arrangements.
“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” Bobby said in a statement.
The daughter of the late Whitney Houston was found in a bathtub unconscious after an apparent drug overdose on Saturday morning at 10:25 a.m. Another source told ET that she was in “bad shape” when she was first found unconscious. She was taken to North Fulton Hospital and placed on a ventilator.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, remained hospitalized Sunday in Roswell, Georgia and was breathing with the help of a ventilator after being found unresponsive in a bathtub, according to multiple media reports.
The 21-year-old was being treated in the intensive care unit at North Fulton Hospital and was placed in a medically induced coma, local TV news station CBS 46 Atlanta reported.
While her condition has been stabilized, Brown is connected to a ventilator and remains unresponsive, according to Entertainment Tonight. The “machine is aiding” and “she has vital signs,” a source told “ET.”
Brown was rushed to the hospital Saturday after being found face down in a filled bathtub at her home. The Roswell Police Department responded to the 911 call after her husband, Nick Gordon and a friend found Bobbi Kristina face down in the tub at 10:30 a.m. EST.
Roswell police did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment Sunday.
In a previous statement, officer Lisa Holland said police administered life-saving measures until Brown could be transported to a hospital.
“Her husband and a friend located her in a bath tub this morning and she was unresponsive. He started CPR and a police officer took over life-saving measures until an ambulance arrived. She was transported to the hospital. Please keep her and the family in your thoughts and prayers.”
Gordon and other family members, including Bobbi Kristina’s father Bobby Brown, have gathered at her bedside.
Bobbi Kristina is the only child of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.
The situation is especially chilling given that Houston was found dead of a drug overdose in a bathtub at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton Hotel. She died Feb. 11, 2012 during Grammy Awards weekend.
An investigation into the incident surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization is now underway by police officials.
