Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, remains in a medically induced coma after being moved to an Atlanta rehab facility this week. According to sources, the “reality” of the situation is “sinking in” for the family.
Bobbi Kristina, 22, was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home Jan. 31. Hospitalized at Emory University Hospital, the aspiring singer was placed in a medically induced coma because of swelling of the brain. In mid-February, Bobbi Kristina suffered a seizure as doctors unsuccessfully attempted to wean her off the coma-inducing medication. She’s currently using a breathing tube with no change in her condition.
Almost two months after her hospitalization, Bobbi Kristina is reportedly at an undisclosed medical rehab facility in Georgia. According to TMZ, the facility is for “long-term care.” And while Bobby Brown is still optimistic about his daughter’s recovery, sources told People magazine the situation “hasn’t gotten any easier for him.”
“It has gotten harder,” one insider dished. “He really thought she’d be better by now, that there would be some change. There hasn’t been any sign of improvement since this happened.”
Bobbi Kristina’s family has remained at her side throughout the entire ordeal, but the source added that “reality is really sinking in.” The stress of the situation has led to reports of feuding between the Browns and the Houstons. This month, Bobby Brown’s sister, Leolah Brown, claimed that Whitney Houston’s sister, Pat Houston, was responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s condition. Others have claimed Pat Houston is fighting with Bobby Brown over whether to remove Bobbi Kristina from life support. However, another insider is denying any trouble within the family.
“Bobby is the decision maker,” the insider told People. “Pat has been by Bobbi Kristina’s side this whole time and is not butting heads with Bobby. Pat will support any decision that Bobby makes about his daughter.”
While Bobbi Kristina continues to fight for her life, new reports of drug use are coming to light. Friend Stephen Stepho admitted to RadarOnline.com that he helped Bobbi Kristina and her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, obtain narcotics. Gordon has allegedly entered rehab after acknowledging addiction issues during an appearance on the “Dr. Phil” television show.
