After confirmation that Bobbi Kristina Brown remains unresponsive, numerous fans and supporters were left confused by Bobby Brown’s April 18 announcement that his daughter woke up. Today, Brown’s lawyer attempted to clear the air and the confusion of Brown’s statement.
Bobby Brown’s stunning announcement at his Dallas, Texas, concert quickly went viral after he told a crowd of cheering fans that his daughter was awake and watching over him. The claim was heightened when Brown’s sister, Tina Brown, posted on Facebook, stating that Bobbi Kristina had awakened and is no longer on life support.
Tina Brown’s post was subsequently deleted after a family member said that Bobbi Kristina remains in critical condition. Although she is no longer on a ventilator, Bobbi Kristina cannot talk and cannot follow people with her eyes, as she lay comatose at Atlanta’s Dekalb Medical hospital.
Us Weekly reports that Bobby Brown’s attorney, Christopher Brown, made a statement today on the singer’s behalf in an attempt to clear the confusion. Apparently, Brown’s message was meant to be a prayer for his daughter, as her condition is slated to improve.
“Bobbi Kristina’s condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement. Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come.”
Alicia Etheredge-Brown, the “Every Little Step” singer’s current wife, also defended her husband today, stating that Brown was under a great deal of emotional turmoil during his concert.
“My husband made an attempt to correct the negative comments he must endure on a daily basis from both family and the public regarding his daughter’s medical condition.”
Regardless, Brown’s comments created a massive upheaval of excitement from a myriad of people who’ve been pulling for Bobbi Kristina’s recovery. When an undisclosed source stated that the 22-year-old’s condition hasn’t changed, the hopes of many supporters were crushed.
Although the odds are against her and there are differing statements regarding her health, only time will tell if Bobbi Kristina actually improves. She’s been in three different hospitals since January 31, when she was found unconscious, lying face down in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia, townhouse.
Multiple drugs, including Xanax, heroin, and cocaine, were allegedly found in her system. Sources close to the reality star also indicated that she was a heavy drinker who regularly participated in risky behavior.
As Bobbi Kristina Brown continues on her journey to hopeful healing, the Roswell Police Department continue to investigate the cause of the incident. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, currently in rehab, remains under investigation.
