UPDATE: Despite reports to the contrary, Bobbi Kristina Brown will not be taken off life support on Wednesday, February 11 — the three year death anniversary of her mother Whitney Houston — a lawyer for Bobby Brown says in a statement to Billboard.
"The false reports that continue to appear in print and on the internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time. In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Daily Mail (UK) citing, police sources, family sources and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention," the lawyer wrote. "The desire to be 'first' has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence," he added.
It seems that Brown has verified that a criminal investigation is indeed underway over how the 21-year-old wound up face down and unconscious in a bathtub on January 31. Various sources report that her proclaimed husband Nick Gordon is the focus of the investigation.
Meanwhile, relatives of Bobby Brown tell Entertaintment Tonight that Bobbi Kristina is "progressing," and that "she's getting better." Shayne Brown, Bobby Brown's nephew, adds, "we just ask for people to continue to pray."
Bobbi Kristina Brown will be taken off life support on Wednesday, February 11, exactly three years after her mother's passing, the New York Post reports. Her father, Bobby Brown, is said to have come to terms with the fact that the 21-year-old will not come out of the coma she has been in since January 31, and is choosing to wait for the anniversary of Whitney Houston's death.
Sources also say that Cissy Houston is on board with the decision, and feels the date will "bond mother and daughter for eternity."
As Brown's family holds vigil at her bedside, police are investigating her proclaimed husband, Nick Gordon, after suspicious marks were found on her face. Brown was discovered face down and unconscious in her bathtub by pal Max Lomas on January 31, and has been in a coma ever since. While drugs were the immediate suspect as the cause of her condition, cops are now looking into any role Gordon may have played.
THE UPS AND DOWNS OF BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN
According to TMZ, the couple had a history of abuse and Lomas claims Gordon was acting strangely before they discovered Brown in the tub. Gordon hasn't been seen at Emory University Hospital, where Brown lies in coma, for many days.
Meanwhile, Brown's family has been struggling to come to grips with Brown's condition, which doctors have deemed hopeless. Family friend Smokey Robinson provided an update to Entertainment Tonight at Clive Davis's pre-Grammys party.
"She's out of it," the legendary Motown singer said of Cissy Houston. "She's really struggling with all of this."
"It's such a tragic situation," Robinson continued. Her aunt Leolah Brown took to her Facebook page to ask for prayers and said she feels "drained" as the reality of the music scion's situation sets in.
