Bobbi Kristina Brown Dies At Age 22
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died today (July 26) in Duluth, GA., after being in a medically-induced coma for five months, Entertainment Tonight reports. She was 22 years old.
Fans of both Houston and Brown watched Bobbi Kristina grow up, though with a watchful eye due to the couple’s tumultuous relationship with drugs, alcohol and each other. Bobbi Kristina was especially close to Houston, though, appearing by her side during interviews and on stage. As early as the 2012 reality show The Houstons: On Our Own, which was filmed immediately after the singer’s death, Bobbi Kristina even entertained the idea of following her mother’s footsteps into music.
When Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her Roswell, GA., home on January, there was another, far more eerie coincidence: She was found in a bathtub, nearly three years to the day after Houston was found dead in a bathtub. In the months that followed, Bobbi Kristina was moved to two different hospitals, a rehabilitation center and then to Peachtree Christian Hospice, where she passed away.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” her guardian, Pat Houston, says to ET. “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
