Bobby Brown Celebrates Birthday With Family

In the wake of Bobbi Kristina Brown's tragedy, her father Bobby Brown paused for a few minutes to celebrate his 46th birthday. It wasn't the only event Brown was celebrating. As the Inquisitr reported, Bobby and his wife Alicia Etheridge are expecting a child together.

Despite the reportedly dire situation surrounding his daughter, Bobby was brought to a private dinner set for a table of twenty for his birthday. According to E!, Bobby Brown made sure this celebration remained private, especially in the wake of the tragedy with his daughter that's been going on since Bobbi was found facedown in a bathtub on January 31.

As for the private celebration, sources told E! that guests were waiting at a bar until Bobby arrived. Then the party followed the singer to the table. Security was present at the party to ensure privacy, and curtains were drawn that shielded the party from the public, which is just the opposite of what the family has been dealing with all week.

Since Bobbi Kristina was found in her bathtub in Georgia, Bobby Brown has rarely been seen outside of her hospital bed. Many sources have said he's in denial of Bobbi Kristina's condition, despite conflicting reports that she was taken off of life support.

Amid the various reports about Bobbi Kristina's condition, her father put out a statement through his lawyer, the other day, to address the situation. "If we issued a statement every time the media published a false report regarding this matter, that's all we would be doing 24 hours a day. This is false, just as is the vast majority of the other reporting that is currently taking place."

According to People magazine, a family member spoke with the outlet to discuss the uplifting spirit the family is holding up for Bobbi.

"It's sinking in that this is it, but we're all still praying that God will intervene and heal her body."

The first statement to be released by Bobbi Kristina's family came from the Houstons on Tuesday. "Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."
