We were heartbroken to report last night that Bobbi Kristina Brown died Sunday after being in a medically-induced coma for more than six months. The 22-year-old was found unconscious in a bathtub on January 31 and her condition “continued to deteriorate,” according to Bobbi’s aunt Pat Houston.
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the Houston family said in a statement to ABC News.
Father Bobby Brown is devastated by this loss but also echoes similar hopeful thoughts, according to People.
“[Bobby] is holding it together more than you’d expect,” a source told the magazine. “He is taking comfort in the fact that she’s with her mother [Whitney Houston], and that there will be no more sadness or pain. She is at peace. He knows that, and is taking comfort in that.” (In February 2012, Whitney was found dead in a bathtub at the The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.)
Our thoughts go out to Bobbi Kristina’s family during this difficult time. [People]
