EXCLUSIVE: Bobbi Kristina Brown Dies at 22
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of late music legend Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, died on July 26, surrounded by her family, at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia. She was 22.
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the Houston family said in statement to ET. “We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
On Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub, and was then taken to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia, where she was put on a ventilator to assist her breathing. She was later placed in a medically induced coma at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat Houston told ET in a statement that day. “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
Born March 4, 1993, in Livingston, New Jersey, Bobbi Kristina was thrust into the spotlight at an early age, but the love her mother had for her was obvious early on.
“She brings me a lot of joy,” Houston told ET back in 1993. “She brings both Bobby and I a lot of joy. It’s a different thing when you become a mother. It changes your whole perspective on life. You really don’t live for you anymore. You’re living for your children.”
Between her father’s string of hit songs and her mother being one of the best-selling artists of all time, as well as her parents’ tumultuous relationship, as a child Bobbi Kristina became a target of tabloid scrutiny.
Then 10 years old, she was featured on the controversial 2005 Bravo reality series Being Bobby Brown, which famously depicted the family’s darker days.
