As the daughter of late Whitney Houston fights for her life, she is surrounded by family and friends. Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, was found unconscious in her bathtub on Saturday morning, only a week shy of the three-year anniversary of her mother's death. She has been hospitalized in Atlanta since. Houston accidentally drowned in her bathtub the night before the Grammys in 2012.
"Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family," read a statement released by the family. "As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."
Bobbi was submerged in water when her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and his friend found her in the tub. Gordon started CPR while the friend called 911. Bobbi was still unresponsive when she arrived at the hospital. She is on a ventilator in a comatose state and sources say that chances of her survival seem slim.
Her father, Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown, issued a brief statement saying "Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time."
Authorities have said that they did not find any signs that drugs or alcohol played a role, and sources note that Bobbi was doing well and not drinking or using.
Another source said that, "Whatever anyone thinks, Krissi would never try to commit suicide. It wasn't something she would even consider, no matter how low she might be feeling."
Bobbi Kristina and her family are in our thoughts during this difficult time. Check back for more updates on her condition as they develop.
