Bobbi Kristina Brown’s father, Bobby Brown, has spoken out following her hospitalisation on Saturday morning.
Bobby and the late Whitney Houston’s 21-year-old daughter was found unresponsive in a bath tub by her husband, Nick Gordon, and the 45-year-old has now released a statement, which requests “privacy” for his family.
The statement read: “Privacy is requested in this matter.
“Please allow my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.
“The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, georgia is accurate.
“No additional information will be forthcoming.”
Bobbi was said to be suffering from “significantly diminished” brain function, with the singer being put into a medically induced coma yesterday.
Although it is uncertain what caused her to loses conciousness in the bath, with police not finding any evidence of drugs or foul play in her home, Bobbi’s hospitalisation is eerily similar to when her mother was found dead in a hotel bathtub on February 11th 2012, with police commenting: “Obviously we all know her mum died this very same way.”
Now, new sources have come forward to claim that Bobbi had become “obsessed” with the upcoming third anniversary of her mother’s death, an insider shared to TMZ: “She was seemingly obsessed by it – strangely more so that last year or the year before.
“She talked more about that anniversary than her recent first Wedding anniversary.”
It is thought that the young girl’s husband, Nick Gordon, found Bobbi on her stomach in the full bath at 10.25am on Saturday morning, he and a friend tried to revive her but when the ambulance arrived she was rushed to casualty.
Bobbi’s cousins have spoken out on Bobbi’s condition, with Jerod Brown telling NBC news: “She’s been through a lot, you know what I’m saying.
“This is a hard time, it’s her mother’s anniversary of her death. It’s been a hard time, it’s a rough time of year.
“But she’s a tiger, she’s going to pull through it.”
YF Kennedy added: “Krissi doesn’t do drugs. She hasn’t been drinking or doing drugs and she’s cut down on cigarettes.
“She’s been trying to get her music together and keep her voice clean. Her voice is so beautiful.
“She’s still been going through the grieving stages but is trying to keep her spirits up.
“She’s been going to the gym every day with her husband and trying to be happy.”
It is thought that Bobbi’s father and close friends and family are keeping a vigil by her hospital bedside.
