This past Saturday morning, Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown — was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta-area home by her husband Nick Gordan and a friend. Gordon “started CPR and a police officer took over life-saving saving measures until an ambulance arrived,” Roswell Police said in a Department.
Local news outlets report that Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma due to brain swelling. TMZ reports that the situation is “bleak” for Bobbi Kristina and the 21-year-old has “significantly diminished” brain function and is on a ventilator.
Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown released the following statement to E! News in the wake of his daughter’s medical emergency via his attorney, Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC:
“The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, is accurate. No additional information will be forthcoming. Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”
Lisa Holland, a spokeswoman from the Roswell Police Department said they searched the home and did not find any drugs inside. Holland said she didn’t know how long Brown had been in the bathtub before being being discovered — and said there was no sign of struggle.
“We don’t leave any stone unturned.” “So the police took a search warrant on the home. Before the warrant, initially when the police went into the home there were nothing there that indicated that anything out of the ordinary happened. There were no drugs out in the open.”
Bobbi Kristina’s mother, Houston, died in February 2012 at age 48, having drowned in a hotel bathtub.
Our prayers go out to Bobbi Kristina and her family.
