It was another tragedy yesterday for the Houston-Brown family, as the only daughter of late superstar Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, Bobby Kristina Brown died Sunday at the age of 22.
The family posted a photo of Whitney with Bobby Kristina as a baby on whitneyhouston.com with the message: “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.”
Whitney Houston, the mother, was found dead after she accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles in February 2012. In her own case, Brown was discovered face down and unresponsive in a bathtub on 31 January at her Roswell home she shared with her boyfriend Nick Gordon. Gordon said at the time she did not appear to be breathing and lacked a pulse before emergency services arrived. She was placed in a medically induced coma in a hospital and then moved to a hospice facility in the city of Duluth, Georgia, a month ago after her condition deteriorated.
Kristen Foster, a family representative, said, “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family, she is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
Before her death, Brown seemed to be picking up her career to follow the footsteps of her mother Whitney. She made her acting debut on Tyler Perry’s TBS show “For Better or Worse”. She also featured in Lifetime’s reality show centered on her family The Houston’s: On Our Own (2012).
Brown’s family has accused Gordon, who was taken in by late Houston when he was 12 years old and raised alongside Brown for being responsible for her death. Gordon and Brown were said to have become romantically involved after Houston’s death, though it created tensions between the Gordon and Houston families. After the incident in January, his relationship with Brown’s relatives became sour that he was not even allowed to visit Brown while she stayed in the hospital.
In a lawsuit filed on June 24, Brown’s representative sued Gordon of misrepresenting his relationship with her. Gordon was accused of being violent toward her and taking more than $11,000 from her account while she was in a medical induced coma after the 31 January incident. He was also accused of assault, battery, unjust enrichment, conversion and intentional infliction of emotional distress on the late Brown.Follow Us on Social Media
