“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. 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,” according to statement from the Houston family, and reported by a number of media outlets.
Reports ABC News: “Brown, who was an aspiring actress and singer, was found in her bath tub by a friend, Max Lomas, and her partner Nick Gordon on Jan. 31 and taken to a local hospital, according to police.” The story notes that Brown was then “moved to the Neurology Intensive Care Unit of Emory University Hospital a few days later, and then a rehab facility in late March.”
The reports adds that Brown’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, had told People magazine in April, “I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive.”
Notes E! Online News, “The 22-year-old’s passing comes a little more than three years after her mother’s death. The legendary singer drowned in the bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel the day before the 2012 Grammys.”
Bobbi Kristina was the only child of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown.
