Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away in Atlanta at a hospice center. She was 22.

"Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God," the Houston family said in a statement to E! News. "We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months." 

Brown, who was an aspiring actress and singer, was the only child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston. She was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home on the morning of Jan. 31 and had been in a comatose state since then. 

In late June, her aunt Pat Houston told media that Brown was moved to hospice care after her condition worsened.

Her aunt released the following statement on June 24 about her niece's condition: "Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate. As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."

Brown's mother Whitney passed away three years earlier in California before the 2012 Grammys. The legendary singer drowned in the bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel, and her death was eventually ruled as accidental with cocaine use and heart disease cited as contributing factors.

Tragically, Brown's death seemed similar to her mother's, as she was found face down in a filled tub by friend Max Lomas and longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon. Gordon reportedly rushed to the room and tried to revive Brown with CPR while his friend called 911.

Gordon was recently served with a $10 million lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina's state-appointed conservator. 

Authorities have refused to comment on the ongoing investigation, but E! News exclusively reported in February that the Roswell Police Department was looking into the possibility that another person or persons may have been in Bobbi Kristina's home the morning she was discovered dead.

Brown starred in a 2012 reality show titled The Houstons: On Our Own and had been very vocal about her career aspirations, wanting to follow in Whitney's footsteps. She also appeared on another reality show, Being Bobby Brown, in 2005 and received an acting credit for a role on the show For Better or Worse in 2012.

Bobbi Kristina's cousin Jerod Brown, known also as YF Kennedy, recently said that Bobbi Kristina had not been drinking alcohol or using drugs, and had been happy, focusing on her journey in the music world. 

"She's excited. She was real focused. She was ecstatic about her new journey that was embarking on," Brown told E! News. "You could see it on Instagram when she commented on it with the fans as well. She was ready to do this and let the world see what she was working on."

Our thoughts go out to the Houston and Brown families.
