The final decision about Bobbi Kristina Brown’s health will likely be decided by a judge if her condition begins to deteriorate, and Cissy Houston and Bobby Brown fail to reach a conclusion together, TMZ reported. A court on Friday granted Bobby Brown and Pat Houston co-guardianship of the 22-year-old, who has remained unresponsive for over three months.
The Houstons and the Browns have been feuding since the daughter of the late Whitney Houston was hospitalized after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Atlanta home on Jan. 31. Bobbi Kristina’s condition has shown little sign of improvement since then. Her grandmother, Cissy, also recently hinted that there wasn’t much that the family could do to help her.
“She's the same, she's not progressing at all,” Cissy told Entertainment Tonight. “She's not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I'm ready for her ... I have nothing to do with that. That's His job. It's His territory, you know? And I understand it.”
Bobby Brown, however, has stated that he would do anything to keep his daughter alive. TMZ reported that the R&B singer is willing to take severe measures, if necessary, to save Bobbi Kristina, but the Houston family is not inclined toward the decision.
The two families are jointly responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s care and medical needs, and if they fail to reach a decision, a judge may reportedly have to step in and settle the situation.
The Houstons and the Browns have also been battling over Bobbi Kristina's $20 million estate, which she inherited from her late Grammy award-winning mother.
Although Bobby Brown was made his daughter’s co-legal guardian, he will not have access to her estate. According to Whitney's will, Cissy, Bobbi Kristina's uncle Gary and aunt Pat will inherit the estate if the aspiring actress dies.
Bobbi Kristina was moved to DeKalb Medical facility in Atlanta in mid-March from the city’s Emory University Hospital where she was initially admitted. Bobby Brown reportedly believed that there would be an improvement in her condition in the new rehabilitation facility, which is known for its long-term care. Bobbi Kristina was taken off life support in DeKalb in late April. She reportedly suffers from irreversible brain damage, according to medical experts.
