Six months after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home, Bobbi Kristina Brown died Sunday, July 26. The daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston was 22 years old.
Bobby Brown broke his silence on the death of his daughter Monday afternoon in a statement released by his lawyer, Christopher Brown, to People magazine:
“Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown was hospitalized on Jan. 31 after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home. The aspiring singer was discovered by her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who alerted the authorities and administered CPR. Brown was placed in a medically induced coma, but her condition did not improve. In March she was transferred to another Georgia hospital for long-term care. On June 24 the family announced that her condition had deteriorated and that she was being moved to Peachtree Christian Hospice to live out her remaining days peacefully.
The date of Brown’s funeral service has not been released, but sources are saying that it is scheduled for later this week in Atlanta. An insider told ET Online that the family plans on flying Brown’s body to New Jersey to be buried next to her mother at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield. Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012 from an accidental drowning. The coroner determined that heart disease and cocaine use were also factors in her death. She was buried on Feb. 19, 2012, next to her father, John Russell Houston.
The death of Bobbi Kristina Brown comes just a few weeks after Bobby Brown welcomed his sixth child, his second with wife Alicia Etheredge. Etheredge gave birth to a baby girl, Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown, on July 9.
