Bobbi Kristina's Neighbor Called 911 a Week Before Coma

Bobbi Kristina's Neighbor Called 911 a Week Before Coma

Plus, Brown's aunt says she is "improving" and "doing well."

A week before Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub, one of her neighbors reported a domestic dispute at her home in a 911 call that was released by the Roswell Police Department to Us Weekly.

The call, which was made on Friday, January 23, was from a man named Rick Gilbert, who said he was a security guard at the private gated community in Roswell, Georgia, where Brown lived with her proclaimed husband, Nick Gordon. The man told the 911 dispatcher that one of the neighbors said a fight had taken place on Bobbi's property.

MUSIC AND SUICIDE: A TRAGIC HISTORY

The neighbor told the guard that people were outside of the three-bedroom townhouse "hitting each other and swinging." However, the guard did not know the names or descriptions of the people involved in the fight. He was informed by the dispatcher to have the neighbor directly call back herself, which she never did. "A second call did not occur," the police department confirms.

Roswell Police Department and a lawyer for Bobby Brown have both confirmed that Bobbi Kristina's hospitalization is indeed being treated as a criminal investigation. "The incident has always been under criminal investigation and has not been reclassified as a criminal investigation," a statement from Roswell PD reads. "This remains an active investigation."

Meanwhile, Brown's family is convinced the 21-year-old is showing signs of improvement despite numerous reports that she is brain dead and will not recover. Speaking to Fox 5 Atlanta, Brown's aunt Leolah Brown says "she is improving" and "doing well." She adds that Brown is opening and moving her eyes, though she is still on life support. She also asserts that doctor's have said her condition is improving. 

"She's got some color back," another family member tells People, "but she's still not responding." 

This news is contrary to news from other anonymous sources within the family and also contradicts most professional opinions that recovery under Brown's circumstances is nearly impossible. Columbia University's Department of Neurology says that eye opening can still be "accompanied by a total lack of cognitive or mental activity of any type."

Brown has remained in a medically induced coma since January 31. The music scion, 21, was first found by pal Max Lomas, who called 911. According to police, Gordon was performing CPR on Bobbi when paramedics arrived at the scene. He has not been seen at the hospital since Brown was transferred from North Fulton Hospital to Emory University Hospital on February 2.
