Today marks the third anniversary of the tragic passing of the iconic and legendary songstress, Whitney Houston.
Houston was found dead in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards and today, while fans remember the late Grammy Award winner, the singer’s family is grieving over her one and only daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
Bobbi is currently on life support at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after being found unresponsive in a similar manner in her mother’s death. BK was discovered face down, in a bathtub full of water over a week ago and has been in a medically induced coma since.
There were several reports this week claiming that Krissi’s family was planning on taking the 21-year-old off life support today, purposely on the anniversary of Whitney’s death. But in a statement released by BK’s father, Bobby Brown’s lawyer, the reports were false.
“We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended. However the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the Internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time. In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Daily Mail (UK) citing, police sources, family sources and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be ‘first’ has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.”
“We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for Bobbi Kristina. God is hearing our prayers,” said Bobby Brown.
Earlier this week, Bobbi’s aunt, Shayne Brown said that “she’s getting better. We just ask for people to continue to pray.”
It has not been confirmed as to what led to the 21-year-old’s hospitalization, but according to reports, investigators are looking into possible foul play.
