Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of legendary entertainers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has died at the age of 22. The family confirmed the news in a statement to ET:
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
On January 31, 2015, the younger Brown was found face down in a bathtub in her home in Georgia. Her husband, Nick Gordon and a friend called 911 and began performing CPR until an ambulance arrived. Once in the hospital, doctors were able to stabilize her condition, however numerous outlets reported that Brown was in a medically induced coma and had very little brain activity. While in the hospital, her father Bobby and family friend Tyler Perry kept vigil at her bedside.
On July 26, 2015, Bobbi Kristina Brown was pronounced dead at 22-years-old by doctors at the Peachtree Christian Hospice where she had been moved on Wednesday, June 24 after spending months at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital. “Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to detoriate,” Pat Houston said in a statement. “As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
Born on March 4, 1993, Bobbi’s mother, Whitney, said of her birth:
“Having Bobbi Kristina … I could never do anything that could top that. There’s been nothing more incredible in my life than having her. God knows, I have been in front of millions and millions of people, and that has been incredible, to feel that give-take thing. But, man, when I gave birth to her and when they put her in my arms, I thought: This has got to be it. This is the ultimate. I haven’t experienced anything greater.”
The public first got to know Bobbi when she was featured on her mother’s 1998 hit single “My Love Is Your Love”, adorably singing “clap your hands, clap your hands.” Bobbi even performed the song live in Germany with her mother, to the delight of thousands of screaming fans.
