Reporting about Bobbi Kristina Brown’s medical state hasn’t been easy.
False reports about her health have emerged time and time again. There are multiple reasons for this, the most likely one being that the Brown family really hasn’t wanted the media involved in this process at all. Understandably so.
Though details remain scarce, we’ve put together a list of key points surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s case, including the crime scene, her hospitalization, and the family feuds. Here’s what you need to know.
Bobbi Kristina’s former Georgia condo is now on the market for almost $470,000, according to People. The home has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The master bathroom includes the whirlpool tub in which Bobbi Kristina was discovered face down almost a year ago.
Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, spoke to New York’s WBLS FM 107.5 about Bobbi Kristina, who was recently moved from Emory University Hospital to a rehabilitation center. “She’s the same,” Cissy said of Bobbi Kristina. “You know, still not a great deal of hope.” Bobbi Kristina’s 81-year-old grandmother also thanked everyone for their support and prayers. “I’m asking everybody: ’Just pray to the Lord who we know can do something about it,” she said.
Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken out of a medically induced coma so that doctors can better assess whether or not her body can stabilize on its own, according to People. Bobbi Kristina remains on life support—a ventilator and a feeding tube. Father Bobby Brown recently canceled his Australian tour to stay by his daughter’s side. Nick Gordon has been posting about Bobbi Kristina on Twitter.
The Crime Scene
A Comcast Xfinity cable man went to Bobbi Kristina’s home the morning of Saturday, January 31, according to E!. The cable man’s visit is what caused Bobbi’s friend Max Lomas, who got to the house around 9 a.m. according to TMZ, and boyfriend Nick Gordon to look for Bobbi Kristina. Lomas’ attorney told E! that Nick “answered the door for the cable man, and he was showing the cable man around.” Lomas “knocked on [Bobbi Kristina’s] door and he didn’t get an answer, so he went in and checked on her to see how she was doing.”
According to Lomas’ lawyer, Lomas first found Bobbi Kristina unconscious in the bathtub. “He’s actually the one that found her, and he called for Nick, screamed for Nick, and then he immediately called 911,” Lomas’ lawyer told E!. Lomas also pulled Bobbi Kristina out of the bathtub, according to People.
Lomas has been arrested three times, and was most recently arrested for possessing drugs and a firearm on January 14, according to USA Today. Lomas was believed to have used drugs to hold his girlfriend, Danyela Bradley, against her will, but Lomas’ attorney denied these claims to USA Today.
The police found drugs in Bobbi Kristina’s home after a second sweep the weekend she was found unconscious, according to TMZ.
Georgia police confirmed in a statement to Reuters, that the case is now officially being treated as a criminal investigation.
Bobbi Kristina’s Hospitalization
Bobbi Kristina opened and closed her eyes a few times on Monday, February 2, two days after she was found unconscious, according to CNN. Her opening and closing her eyes was believed to have been caused by a reduction in her sedatives.
By this time, Bobbi Kristina was in a medically induced coma, and was breathing on a ventilator in the intensive care unit of North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, GA.
According to USA Today, the rumor that Bobbi Kristina will be pulled off of life support on the three-year anniversary of her mother’s death is not true. Her family is looking to take legal action against those out there misreporting the facts.
In an interview with FOX 5 News in Atlanta, Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, told the station that she is “improving” but still remains on life support.
A source told USA Today in late February that Bobbi Kristina’s breathing tube had been removed, though her condition remains “unchanged.”
Relationship with Nick Gordon
Bobbi Kristina tweeted that she and Nick Gordon were “happily married” on January 10, 2014. The pair opened up to Extra later that month about announcing their marriage via Twitter, but Extra made sure to note that the couple was not legally married.
Father Bobby Brown’s lawyer told People that Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina were never formally married on February 3.
According to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon have a history of violence in their relationship. Nick was supposedly jealous about all the attention Bobbi Kristina received from the public after Whitney Houston’s death. Gordon couldn’t understand why the public fixated on Bobbi Kristina and not the both of them, as he felt as though he was Houston’s son.
Nick Gordon is the target of the criminal investigation surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s facial injuries as of Friday, February 6, according to TMZ. Police are investigating an altercation that might have happened over an hour before Lomas discovered Bobbi Kristina in her bathtub.
The Family Beef
Beef between Nick Gordon and Bobby Brown escalated at Bobbi Kristina’s hospital bedside on Tuesday, February 3, according to Hollywood Life. Tyler Perry is said to have broken up the argument.
On Friday, February 6, Bobby Brown’s family got into a brawl after dining together for Bobby Brown’s birthday. The W Hotel in Atlanta called police after an incident between Shayne Brown, Bobby’s nephew, and Tina Brown, Bobby’s sister, according to E!. The fight started due to a valet parking ticket, according to TMZ. Shayne called his mother a “crackhead,” to which she responded by striking him on the head with a bottle. Shayne had to get stitches for the cut caused by the blow, and three people were injured.
On Monday, February 8, TMZ reported that Bobbi Kristina’s family got into heated discussions surrounding her funeral plans. The discussion was fueled by unresolved feelings from Whitney Houston’s funeral, when Bobby Brown received negative reactions from the Houston family to his bringing nine family members with him. Bobby also stormed out of the service after he wasn’t allowed to sit with Bobbi Kristina.
Tyler Perry’s Relation to it All
When he heard about Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization, Tyler Perry offered to fly Bobby Brown to Atlana, GA from Los Angeles, according to US.
Oprah Winfrey told a photographer that Perry was “instrumental in trying to help Bobbi Kristina,” and that he was “really supportive of Whitney [Houston] when she had her troubles,” according to People.
Bobbi Kristina appeared on Perry’s TBS series For Better or Worse in 2012, shortly after her mother died, according to People. Perry was seen at Emory University Hospital on Sunday, February 8, and has supposedly been staying in touch with the Brown family during Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization.
In late October of 2012, Bobbi Kristina and Cissy Houston settled their arguments over Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance money from her mother’s death, according to TMZ.
It’s uncertain whether or not Bobbi Kristina was actually receiving her inheritance money, according to E!. Money was a main source of arguments between Bobbi Kristina and her family. Bobbi Kristina is the only heir to Whitney Houston’s fortune.
A couple of factors are at play as far as who could inherit Bobbi Kristina’s fortune, according to Hollywood Life. Nick Gordon would inherit everything if the couple is legally married, but if not, the inheritance would go to Cissy Houston and her sons.
