Bobbi Kristina Brown Moved to Hospice Care, Says Her Family

Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, has been moved to hospice care after being unresponsive for nearly five months, according to her family.

Hospice is normally described as care that keeps a patient comfortable before impending death and is often provided in the same facility where a patient was being treated. Life-saving procedures usually aren't used in hospice when a medical crisis happens.

 


Brown, 22, was found unconscious and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta home in late January in a scene eerily similar to the death of her mother in 2012. She spent several months in an Atlanta-area hospital and a rehab facility, reported People magazine.

"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, (her) condition has continued to deteriorate," Houston family spokeswoman Pat Houston said in a statement on Wednesday. "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."

R&B entertainer Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina's father, had been holding out hope for a recovery but a source from his family acknowledged to the magazine her grim prospects.

"She's skin and bones now," the Brown family source told People. "She has been losing weight, she's been losing hair. They were taking good care of her, but she has no muscle tone at all. There has been some worry that her organs are shutting down."

Brown's grandmother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, said in April that Bobbi Kristina Brown had suffered "irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive," reported ABC News' "Good Morning America." Houston said at the time that her granddaughter was no longer in a medically induced coma but could not communicate.

With Bobbi Kristina Brown in hospice, the family appeared to turn their focus on her live-in boyfriend Nick Gordon, who was once described as her husband, according to NBC News. Bedelia C. Hargrove, appointed by Fulton County Superior Court as Brown's conservator, filed a lawsuit against Gordon on Wednesday.

The lawsuit seeks $10 million and charges that Gordon physically abused Brown and improperly withdrew $11,000 from her bank account after she was in a coma.

The lawsuit alleged that Gordon and Brown argued early on Jan. 31, the same day she was found unresponsive in the bathtub, said NBC News. The suit claims that Brown's condition was the "direct and proximate result" of Gordon's conduct.

Brown and Gordon grew up together after Whitney Houston took him into their family home when he was 12, but he was never formally adopted, noted NBC News.
