Tyler Perry Has 'No Words' After Bobbi Kristina's Death

Plus, autopsy shows "no evidence of foul play."

Published July 29, 2015

Bobbi Kristina Brown's loved ones are grieving the loss of the 22-year-old, who died on Sunday after spending six months in a coma. Tyler Perry, close friend of her late mother, Whitney Houston, took to Twitter on Tuesday to sum up his feelings.

"I'm a writer with no words…. Bobbi Kris," the director and producer wrote. Perry has been a consistent presence at Bobbi Kristina's bedside since she was hospitalized in January, and the last time he spoke out about the music scion, it was to blast the media for its coverage of the tragedy.

BOBBI KRISTINA: IN HER OWN WORDS

Meanwhile, as a homicide investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding her death, Bobbi Kristina's former boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who is the only "person of interest" in the case, has a couple of things he can count on to bolster his defense, should he need it: firstly, Brown's autopsy report says there is "no significant evidence" of foul play in her death, with the coroner adding the caveat that, because of the amount of time that has passed between her hospitalization and her death, not much information can be gotten from the procedure. In addition, prosecutors are looking for Max Lomas, the friend of Gordon and Brown, to support the claim that Gordon provided drugs to Bobbi Kris. If that is proven, it could be a way to prosecute Nick Gordon.

Law enforcement sources reportedly tell TMZ that the fateful January day when Brown was found unconscious in her bathtub wasn't the first time she was found that way. According to the sources, Bobbi Kristina was in a similar scenario the night before her mother's death in 2011, when she became extremely intoxicated and fell asleep in her tub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. By the time she woke up, the bathroom was flooded with water. 

Gordon's attorney, Jose Baez, who famously defended Casey Anthony in her murder trial, is planning to use this information in Gordon's defense should criminal charges be filed. 

Funeral plans are underway for Brown in Atlanta, and after the services her body will reportedly be flown to Westfield, New Jersey, to be laid to rest next to her mother. Take a look back at Bobbi Kristina's life and tragic death in our memorial video, below:
