Bobbi Kristina Brown is the only daughter of the famed Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.

The health status of Bobbi Kristina Brown has largely remained unchanged ever since she was found unconscious at her home in Georgia back on Jan. 31 by her partner, Nick Gordon. Now her father, Bobby Brown, has opened up on how the family is coping with her condition.

According to Michael Rothman of ABC News, Brown thanked his fans for supporting him through "rough times." He made those comments during the Soul Food Festival in Los Angeles last weekend.

"I wanna thank all of y'all for coming out tonight, for supporting me and my family," Brown said. "Rough times are rough times. Hard times are hard times."

Brown added that despite the hardship, he was giving his daughter's situation "to God and letting Him deal with it."

Rothman reported that 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina had been placed in multiple hospitals since the end of January. She is currently living in a rehabilitation facility.

A staff reporter at News Everyday reported that the family feud between the Browns and the Houstons have continued to grow. That's because many of them are against Brown's decision to keep his daughter on life support.

"Nothing has improved for Krissy," a source said. "She is still unresponsive and unfortunately hasn't made any progress in the new place."

The source added that even though the news is "heartbreaking for everyone who loves her so much," the family still trusted God to make the final decision surrounding Bobbi Kristina's fate.

"Cissy and the rest of the Houston family feel like God should be making the final decision about her future," the source said.

Given the lack of real progress in Bobbi Kristina's recovery, Stephanie Webber of US Weekly talked about her mother, the late Whitney Houston, with Deborah Cox. The legendary multi-platinum singer defended her decision to participate in Lifetime's controversial biopic about Houston.

"There [were] a lot of mixed feelings. It is a sensitive thing, but it's a very complex situation," 40-year-old Cox said. "I really just wanted to honor her, and this was a way to do that. I've always loved her music, so it was a great tribute."

According to Webber, Cox re-recorded Houston's vocals for "Whitney," which starred Yaya DaCosta in the title role and was directed by Angela Bassett. Cissy Houston was critical of her daughter's portrayal in the film.

"I didn't hear anything from the family. There was something between Lifetime and the family that was a bit awkward," Cox said. "But all of us as a team wanted to make sure the music sounded authentic."

Even though she is not close to Houston's family, Cox told Webber that Bobbi Kristina still remains in her thoughts and prayers.

"It's very sad," Cox quipped. "I've said my prayers. I hope for a miracle."
