One of the health care workers tasked with caring for Bobbi Kristina Brown in her final days was at her bedside under false pretenses, FOX 5 Atlanta reports. Taiwo Sobamowo has been arrested for impersonating a nurse at Peachtree Christian Hospice, where Brown was treated. Sobamowo was one of the nurses attending to the late music scion, who was unconscious throughout her stay.
It's not clear whether her motive was connected with Bobbi Kristina's celebrity, though reports did surface in her final days that an unknown person had been attempting to sell photos of the ailing star to tabloids.
Sobamowo was employed by Homestead Hospice and Palliative Care, which provides contract nurses for Peachtree Christian. The company says they are “shocked and dismayed that she had issues with her licensing,” adding that Sobamowo was terminated and immediately reported to the State Board of Nursing when they learned of her fraud. Amanda McKissick, Regional Director of Operations said, “We understand that we are not the only hospice that she has gained fraudulent employment with, and we are relieved that she is no longer practicing.”
Sobamowo was picked up over the weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina, and has been charged with identity theft, forgery and impersonating a nurse.
Sadly, Bobbi Kristina experienced plenty of drama during her 22 years on Earth. Hopefully she is resting in peace now. Watch a tribute to Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's only daughter below:
