Speculation on whether Bobbi Kristina Brown was still alive heightened Thursday as family members gathered at the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Atlanta and a second hearse arrived at the location, where the 22-year-old was moved in June, after several months of unsuccessful medical care to revive her.
Sources told Radar Online that Bobbi Kristina was alive by Thursday morning but reports have since speculated that Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, who was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Atlanta home on Jan. 31, is losing the battle to stay alive. Two police officials and a lawyer were also said to have arrived at the hospice care late Thursday, according to the Daily Mail, while four guards are reportedly monitoring the room all day.
Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Pat Houston; Pat's husband and Whitney’s half-brother, Gary; Whitney’s bodyguard Ray Houston; and, Bobby Brown’s older brother Tommy Brown, were seen arriving at the hospice care, where Bobbi Kristina lies unconscious from irreversible brain damage, according to Daily Mail.
The family did not give an update on Bobbi Kristina’s condition, nor did the hospice care clarify why a white tent was erected outside the premises on Wednesday. While the first hearse that arrived Wednesday is black, the second hearse is fully white and was backed up to the tent, the Mirror reported.
A report according to Us Weekly also said that Tyler Perry, a family friend, loaned his private jet to fly Bobby Brown, who recently welcomed a daughter with wife Alicia Etheredge in Los Angeles, to Atlanta. Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother Cissy Houston was not able to travel from her home in New Jersey due to her health. However, an insider told Us Weekly that Pat has been calling Cissy and putting the phone to Bobbi Kristina’s ear so that the grandmother can say her goodbyes over the phone.
Bobbi Kristina has been at the hospice care since June 24, and family members wanting her to “pass on peacefully" have sought to make her room tranquil with dim lighting, scented candles and a soundtrack of Whitney’s songs, Radar Online reported. However, extra security was added after an alleged family member clicked a photo of Bobbi Kristina and tried to sell it to the media.
Meanwhile, Bobbi Kristina’s longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon, who has been served with a $10 million lawsuit by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator for allegedly abusing her and stealing from her, has still not been allowed to see her. Bobby Brown had earlier claimed that Gordon had not revealed everything about the night on Jan. 31 when Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious. However, a source said authorities believe Gordon was worried about the relationship ending and that concern could be the motive for murder.
“If Bobbi Kristina left Nick, it would have destroyed everything he had. Nick was living a lie, telling the world he was Bobbi Kristina’s husband when in fact they were never married,” a source reportedly told Radar Online, adding: “On top of that, Nick was living off Bobbi Kristina’s money. Without her, he’d have nothing. There’s no question Nick didn’t want Bobbi Kristina to leave him. He may have never intended to kill her, but no doubt they argued.”
