The family of Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late music legend Whitney Houston, has moved the 22-year-old to hospice care. On behalf of the Houston family, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Pat Houston, released a statement to declare her condition has deteriorated.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to worsen,” the statement read.
Bobbi Kristina Brown is also the daughter of singer Bobby Brown. Since her hospitalization, her father has released several statements regarding her health while asking fans to pray for his daughter via social media. Last month Bobby Brown and Pat Houston were declared co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina.
On Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina was found lying face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in Atlanta. After being placed in a medically induced coma for weeks, she underwent surgery to replace her breathing tube with a tracheostomy tube in February.
Since the initial report, circumstances surrounding the incident have called for a criminal investigation. Police in the city of Roswell, a suburb of Atlanta, say they have turned their investigative file regarding Bobbi Kristina over to the district attorney who will determine whether any charges will be filed.
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said that his office will be “reviewing the case with greater interest” now that Bobbi Kristina’s condition is critical.
Additionally, TMZ reports that Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is reportedly being sued by her conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, in civil court for $40 million. It’s alleged that Gordon assaulted her and regularly transferred funds from her account to his. According to TMZ, the document alleges that Gordon stole $11,000 from Bobbi Kristina after the 22-year-old was placed in a medically induced coma, and that on one occasion he dragged “her upstairs by her hair.”
After Whitney Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina gave Oprah Winfrey an exclusive interview where she talked about her close relationship with her mother as well as her emotional state after Houston’s death.
“I can hear her spirit talking to me and saying, ‘Keep moving baby,’” Bobbi Kristina told Winfrey.
Whitney Houston was found in a hotel bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012 in Hollywood, and died shortly after. Pat Houston, the icon’s sister-in-law and manager, became an administrator of the trust fund Whitney Houston arranged for her only child.
“We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now,” said the statement.
