Bobbi Kristina Brown suffered a devastating setback this week when she suffered violent seizures shortly after being taken out of a medically induced coma, prompting family to rush back to her side.

Insiders say hope was rising on Bobbi's condition leading into this week, when for the first time doctors tried to take her out of the medically induced coma she has been in for the past several weeks. But the seizures crushed the family's hopes that Bobbi may be getting better.

Sources said that Bobbi's father, Bobby Brown, was "beside himself" after the setback and has canceled an Australian tour that was slated to start in the middle of March.

As a source close to the family told People magazine, family members were hoping Bobbi Kristina Brown would improve and were crushed when she almost immediately suffered seizures after being taken out of a coma. Medical experts say patients are normally taken out of a medically induced coma if a doctors feels they have improved or if they want to assess whether any progress has been made.

It's not evident that Bobbi Kristina Brown has made any progress since being rushed to the hospital on January 31.

"This is a horrible setback,'" the source told People. "Everyone was hopeful that this was the sign that she'd turned the corner. We were so optimistic. Bobby is taking this so hard; he was sure this was going to be a good day. But please, everyone needs to pray for Krissi. I don't care what religion you are, or if you have no religion at all. Send your thoughts, your prayers, your well-wishes. Send everything you've got. Please."

The situation has caused tension between Bobbi's boyfriend Nick Gordon and the rest of the Brown family. On Thursday, Gordon took to Twitter to call out some members of the family.
