The family of Bobbi Kristina Brown have broken their silence after she was found face down in a bathtub on Saturday.

Bobbi, who is the daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, was discovered at her Atlanta home by husband Nick Gordon in similar circumstances to how her mother died.

And her loved ones have now spoken out, saying she is still “fighting for her life”.


    A statement read: “Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family.

    “As her father [singer Bobby Brown] already stated, we are asking you to honour our request for privacy during this difficult time.

    “Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support.”

    Bobbi’s famous mother Whitney Houston passed away in 2012 after she was found in the bath at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

    And Bobbi’s father is “inconsolable” over the fact that his daughter has found herself in similarly tragic circumstances.

    A source told People: “This is his worst nightmare. Losing Whitney was hard, but this is a million times worse, and to lose her in the same way would devastate him.”

    According to the publication, a doctor has said a recovery is possible but it would be a miracle for Bobbi to return to full health.

    However, hope is growing after sources close to the family said the swelling on Bobbi’s brain began to reduce and she has since been able to “move her eyes” as her oxygen levels greatly increased.

    The reason why Bobbi was found unresponsive in the bath is unclear but investigators have not ruled out a suicide bid.
