Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to a new rehabilitation facility in Atlanta for long-term care. But a source close to the family said that her condition has not improved.
According to NBC News, the daughter of late pop singer Whitney Houston, was moved from Emory University Hospital in Georgia, where she has been receiving treatment since she was found in January unresponsive and face down in a bathtub, to a rehabilitation facility in Atlanta. The center is reportedly better equipped to provide long-term care.
According to NBC News, a source close to the family said Brown’s condition has not improved.
The source gave no specific details about when she was moved or the name and exact location of the facility she was moved to.
But TMZ reports she was moved on Thursday after doctors at Emory tried once again to remove her life support gradually.
The attempt was unsuccessful, as she did not respond. She remains in the same condition in which she has been for nearly two months.
Similarly, when doctors at Emory attempted to take her out of medically induced coma in February, she started having seizures, and doctors had to keep her on medications.
But despite the apparent poor prognosis, her father, Bobby Brown, reportedly remains adamantly optimistic that she might still respond and finally come out of the coma. He has also repeatedly pleaded with the media for privacy.
He said in a new statement to E! News, “We continue to request privacy in regards to my daughter’s medical condition. We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers.”
Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston, was seen on Thursday helping Bobby Brown move his daughter’s belongings to the new facility. She was reportedly seen carrying stuffed toys and a few books.
TMZ reports that the move comes a few weeks after doctors at Emory removed Bobbi’s breathing tube from her throat to her neck as part of preparation for the transfer to a new permanent facility.
Bobbi Kristina was first taken to the North Fulton Hospital in Roswell when she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Georgia on January 31. But she was later transferred to Emory Hospital, where she remained until the latest transfer.
Since her hospitalization, members of the extended family have traded sordid accusations. Bobbi’s aunt, Leolah Brown, recently accused Bobbi’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and Pat Houston of being responsible for the 22-year-old’s condition, describing Pat as a “money hungry beast.”
“It was someone’s intention to put her (Bobbi Kristina) where she is right now. That I do believe. There is a police investigation going on and i don’t want to hinder that in any way but my belief is that Pat Houston has a lot to do with it. Whether it be her actual hand I can’t say that right now but I hold her accountable for what happened to my niece Bobbi Kristina because of what knowledge i have of her and i have that right to say that.”
Pat is Whitney’s sister-in-law, married to Whitney’s brother, Gary. Gary and Pat were appointed co-executors of Bobbi Kristina’s $20 million trust after Whitney’s death in 2012.
Pat and Gary are reportedly likely to inherit Whitney Houston’s fortune if Bobbi Kristina, sole heir to her mother’s fortune, dies.
Bobbi’s mother, six-time Grammy Award winner and actress Whitney Houston, had struggled with substance abuse. She was found drowned in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, California, on February 11, 2010.
She is believed to have died at the age of 48 due to various issues, including drug use and heart disease.
