“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family,” read a statement from the Houston family. “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.”
Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Atlanta-area home on Jan. 31. She was subsequently placed in a medically induced coma and has remained hospitalized ever since. Last month, with her condition slowly worsening, Bobby Kristina, who had suffered irreversible brain damage, was placed in hospice care.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to deteriorate,” Bobbi Kristina’s aunt 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.”
Last month, Bobbi Kristina’s conservator Bedelia C. Hargrove filed a lawsuit against Nick Gordon, the young man who Houston had raised alongside Bobbi Kristina and who later became her boyfriend and supposed husband. Hargrove has alleged that Gordon physically abused Bobbi Kristina and that he withdrew $11,000 from her bank account while she remained in a medically induced coma. Hargrove is seeking $10 million.
Gordon could also face a criminal trial. The Fulton Country District Attorney Paul Howard said the office would be investigating the events that led to Bobbi Kristina’s unresponsiveness and eventual death.
Bobbi Kristina lost her mother Whitney Houston on February 11, 2012 in an accidental drowning at the Beverly Hilton ahead of that year’s Grammy Awards. She is survived by her father Bobby Brown and her grandmother Cissy Houston.
