Singer's only child was found unresponsive in a bathtub in January
Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to a hospice following a continued deterioration in her condition.
Brown, 22, was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Atlanta, Georgia on January 31 and placed in a medically-induced coma. She has since been awoken from the coma, but remains unresponsive and doctors say she has suffered “global and irreversible brain damage”.
Confirming that her niece is now being looked after in a hospice, Brown’s aunt and co-guardian Patricia Houston told People yesterday (June 24): “Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to deteriorate. As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
Meanwhile, Brown’s court-appointed conservator, Bedelia C. Hargrove, has filed a civil lawsuit against the 22-year-old’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, claiming that he caused Brown “substantial bodily harm” in an altercation that led to being found “face down in a bathtub, with her mouth swollen and another tooth knocked out” and being diagnosed with “global and irreversible brain damage.” Gordon, who is also accused of stealing money from Brown and falsely claiming to be her husband, has yet to respond to the accusations and has deleted his Twitter account since the lawsuit was filed.
Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub on February 11, 2012. Her death was caused by accidental drowning, heart disease and cocaine use. In her will, she left everything to Bobbi Kristina, her only child.
