Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late singer Whitney Houston, died Sunday, almost six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub, mirroring the way her superstar mother died in 2012. She was 22.
"Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her....
family," the Houston family said in a statement. "She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."
Ultimately, Pat Houston and Bobby, co-guardians for Bobbi Kristina, had to make the decision to withdraw medications. It was a rare moment of agreement for the Browns and Houstons who had battled about Bobbi’s condition throughout her hospitalisation.
Brown, whose father is R&B singer Bobby Brown, was born into the spotlight on March 4, 1993 and was often photographed with her iconic mother before Houston’s death on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards. The singing sensation’s death was ruled an accidental drowning in a bathtub with cocaine and heart disease listed as contributing factors.
Reports say that the District Attorney has been gearing up for a murder case, and her boyfriend Nick Gordon would be their first person of interest. Police said there were bruises on Bobbi Kristina’s face and body after Gordon and a friend, Max Lomas, found her in the tub.
In June 1993, Houston spoke to Rolling Stone about Brown’s birth and said becoming a mother was her top accomplishment.
Whitney died from a drug overdose in 2012 while sitting in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
RIP Bobbi Kristina Brown!
