Whitney Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012 at the age of 48. The singer was discovered submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. A report from the coroner’s office revealed that her cause of death was due to accidental drowning. Cocaine and heart disease also played a factor.
According to a source close to the family, the similarities between Brown’s incident and Houston’s death are “no coincidence.” The insider dished to ET Online that the issue surrounding Brown is “a lot deeper than everyone can see.”
TMZ broke the news Saturday that Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter was taken to the hospital after being discovered unresponsive in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia home. Gordon and a friend reportedly found Brown, and performed CPR on her before the paramedics arrived. Police confirmed the report to People Magazine and posted a message on Facebook regarding the incident:
“Police are on the scene of a rescue call at the home of Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston. Her husband and a friend located her in a bath tub this morning and she was unresponsive. He started CPR and a police officer took over life-saving measures until an ambulance arrived. She was transported to the hospital. Please keep her and the family in your thoughts and prayers.”
An update on Brown’s condition is unconfirmed, however TMZ reports that Brown was “placed in a medically induced coma for swelling of the brain.” Bobby Brown, who was in Los Angeles at the time of the incident, is said to be in Atlanta by his daughter’s side.
