Bobbi Kristina’s Brown hospitalization comes a few days before the death anniversary of her mother, Whitney Houston. The famed singer died on Feb. 11, 2012 after being discovered submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Houston was 48-years-old, and her death was attributed to accidental drowning, cocaine and heart disease.
