Bobby Brown left everybody confused earlier this week when he announced that his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was “awake” almost three months after she was found unconscious in her bathtub and was placed in a medically induced coma.
The lack of a clarification during the singer’s concert in Dallas, Texas made fans wonder if he really meant what he was saying, but it has now been confirmed that Bobbi really is off life support, but she still suffers severe damage to the brain.
Talking to TMZ, the Houston family have explained that the 22-year-old is breathing without the assistance of a ventilator, saying: “According to doctors she’s breathing on her own but the trach has to stay.”
However, they go on to add that Bobbi has suffered “global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive”.
In fact, doctors are said to have told the distraught family that the young starlet has no real hope of recovery and they will have to start to consider the prospect of long-term care.
Bobby and Whitney Houston’s daughter was found unresponsive in her bathtub almost three months ago, with her family saying that she has been “fighting for her life” ever since.
It is thought that Bobbi’s husband Nick Gordon found Bobbi on her stomach in the full bath at 10.25am on Saturday January 31st.
He and a friend tried to revive her but when the ambulance arrived she was rushed to casualty.
There has been scandal surrounding the incident, with it being claimed that Bobbi had been in a physical altercation before she was found, but it remaining mostly unclear what had caused the swelling on her brain.
The whole thing is eerily similar to when her mother was found dead in 2012, with police commenting: “Obviously we all know her mum died this very same way.”
