Rabat – Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died Sunday at age 22, nearly 6 months after being found unresponsive in a bathtub.
Bobbi Kristina was found facedown in her home bathtub in Atlanta, Georgia by Nick Gordon, a man whom she referred to as her husband. Gordon said that it seemed Brown lacked a pulse and wasn’t breathing even before help arrived.
She suffered irreversible brain damage from nearly drowning and thus was put into a medically induced coma, and later taken into hospice care soon after her condition worsened.
Bobbi Kristina Brown dreamt of following in her mother’s footsteps as a singer and making her mark in the world of acting, but her career had not yet had the chance to take off.
Along with a photo of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown as a baby, the family wrote on whitneyhouston.com, “It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers. As Bobbi Kristina would say: ‘The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.'”
Brown’s mother Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel bathtub in Los Angeles, California in 2012. Bobbi Kristina, then 18, was at the hotel when Houston died. “She wasn’t only a mother, she was a best friend,” she had told Oprah Winfrey.
According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office, the cause of death was not immediately known and the length of time between when she was found unresponsive and her death on Sunday will “complicate” efforts to reconstruct exactly what happened. Authorities say that an autopsy will be needed to come to these conclusions.
Police have said that no foul play is suspected and therefore no criminal charges have ever been brought.
Singer Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston’s cousin, described Bobbi Kristina as “a sweetheart”.
“She will be missed, that’s for sure. She was a good girl. She was a good little girl. She really was,” she told Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
