Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly will be taken off life support Wednesday, Feb. 11, the same date her superstar mother, Whitney Houston, died in 2012. Sources told the New York Post that the decision is “symbolic,” and that Brown’s family wants to keep “mother and daughter together for eternity.”
Brown, 21, is the only child of Houston, who died Feb. 11, and singer/songwriter Bobby Brown. Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home Jan. 31, and placed in a medically induced coma for brain swelling. Relatives have been by her side at Emory University Hospital, where doctors have reportedly said there is little they can do for the aspiring singer.
While Bobby Brown has remained optimistic about his daughter improving, other family members “gave their blessing” to stop life support at midnight in order to “align the date” with Whitney Houston’s 2012 death. Cissy Houston, mother of Whitney and grandmother of Bobbi Kristina, reportedly came up with the idea. The iconic singer was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. A coroner’s report revealed the cause of death was accidental drowning; however, cocaine and heart disease also were determined to be factors in her death.
Suspected foul play is driving an investigation by police after Bobbi Kristina Brown was discovered to have suspicious injuries. Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant confirmed to People magazine that the authorities are “going to follow the evidence and see where it leads us.” Sources told TMZ that Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, has a history of domestic violence and allegedly “removed blood stains” in their home before police arrived.
