When Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, was found face down in bathtub last January, she was immediately put in intensive care. Her health still remains an issue, as does the status of her boyfriend Nick Gordon. Her Cousin Jerod Brown plans a prayer tour on Bobbi Kristina's behalf, and here's what we know of Bobbi Kristina Brown's health update from her aunt Leolah.
According to People.com, Bobby Brown's sister Leolah has gone on Facebook to counter the claims that Bobbi Kristina Brown was taken off life support and brought her home to die. In fact, Leolah claims that Bobbi Kristina Brown is "continuing today to improve. And we will never give up on her."
Leolah wrote the post in response to a radio report that she claims didn't correctly state her family's plans for Bobbi Kristina. Leolah states that Bobbi Kristina got the best care possible, and Bobbi Kristina was in a medically induced coma and life support. According to the Inquisitr, the medically induced coma is no longer needed, but hopes dim that she will ever recover fully.
The responsibility of making Bobbi Kristina's medical decisions is shared between Bobby Brown and her aunt, Pat Houston. It sounds like the family is for the life support, and will keep her on that if there is even a chance that will help.
Cissy Houston has been quoted as saying that she will "understand" if her granddaughter will die. This created quite a controversy as Pat and Cissy Houston have control over Bobbi Kristina's estate.
One of the issues that surround the Bobbi Kristina incident is boyfriend Nick Gordon. It is documented that Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Brown were drug-users, but there hasn't really been any declaration saying that drugs were the cause of Bobbi Kristina's condition. Ian Halperin, author of Whitney and Bobbi Kristina: The Deadly Price of Fame, has stated that the police botched the investigation, saying "they [the police covering Bobbi Kristina's case] are basically a small-town police department with limited resources. I'm suggesting that the Atlanta PD takes it over".
Nick Gordon has appeared on the Dr. Phil show, and has gone into rehab. Bobby Brown does not permit him to visit Bobbi Kristina's hospital room.
Leolah has stated that the fight is just beginning, according to US Magazine, she has stated: "You called me out now! Yall want to play games with my niece's life and think THE BROWNS are weak enough to allow it! You got Leolah way messed up!" she wrote. "Stay tuned for my RADIO INTERVIEW where I will speak THE PLAIN TRUTH!!! This ain't nothing! There is so much more to come!!!"
Speaking of more to come, Bobbi Kristina Brown's cousin Jerod Brown has stated that he plans a global prayer tour in order to raise money for her care, according to AJC.com. He announced on his Facebook page that "I am gearing up for #PrayForBK Campaign tour here in the states and will continue overseas (USA, Dubai, Ghana, Asia, London, & Germany). We will be presenting my uncle Bobby a check to assist with the rehabilitation of Bobbi Kristina."
