Bobbi Kristina’s Condition Remains Unclear
Yesterday (Jan. 31), Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive in her Georgia home. Reportedly face-down in her bathtub, the 21-year-old was given CPR, and rushed to North Fulton hospital. As the details of the story develop, Brown’s medical and emotional condition remains unclear. Here are reports gathered from around the Web: Bobbi Kristina has been placed in a medically-induced coma for swelling of the brain. Her father, Bobby Brown arrived at the hospital, along with Tyler Perry, who offered to fly him out. [TMZ] The three-year anniversary of Houston’s death is believed by a source close to the family to be the issue. “It’s been a difficult time for Bobbi Kristina, who’s struggled in the years after her mother’s death,” the source said. “[She] has been vacillating between extremes for a while now and is fighting grief and demons of her own creation.” [People]
