It’s eerily reminiscent, too much so.
The Huffington Post is reporting that Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was found in her Roswell, Georgia home, in the bathtub, unresponsive and having difficulty breathing. Brown was found by her husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend. She was found at approximately 10:25 a.m. this morning.
Upon their discovery, Brown’s husband and friend began CPU and continued until police arrived. They were eventually able to restore Brown’s breathing to normal.
Brown had been previously hospitalized for “stress and anxiety” following the death of her mother. What is eerily reminiscent is that after nearly three years later, Brown is found in a similar condition and situation. Houston was found in a Beverly Hills hotel on February 11, 2012 unresponsive in the hotel room’s bathtub. She later died of a drug overdose.
E! is reporting that Houston’s death was ruled a drowning due to a heart condition and cocaine use. Though Bobbi Kristina’s condition is now listed as stable, the cause of her unresponsiveness is still undetermined. Bobbi’s father has yet to be reached for comment.
Bobbi Kristina was taken to North Fulton Hospital, where she was stabilized and began breathing normally again.
According to Hollywood Life, Bobbi Kristina had seen the TV biopic based on her family, which the family did not approve nor liked.
TMZ has reported that Bobbi Kristina was found face down in the bathtub that held enough water to have a bath. She is now in the Intensive Care Unit, having been diagnosed with swelling on the brain, and has been placed in a medically induced coma.
Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, has now arrived at the North Fulton Hospital in Atlanta, accompanied by actor and mogul Tyler Perry. Perry was flying from Los Angeles to Atlanta, and asked Brown to accompany him, which Brown agreed.
Police have executed a search warrant on the Roswell, Georgia property, but stated no drugs were found. Brown’s representative, YF Kennedy (who is Brown’s cousin, and whose real name is Jerod Brown), was on his way to his cousin’s side to learn more of what happened.
“We don’t know what happened yet,” YF Kennedy told E! News. “We don’t know why she was unresponsive.”
Kennedy was adamant about one possible cause, though.
“Krissi doesn’t do drugs,” YF Kennedy said. “She hasn’t been drinking or doing drugs and she’s cut down on cigarettes. She’s been trying to get her music together and keep her voice clean. Her voice is so beautiful.”
