Bobbi Kristina Brown was discovered facedown and unconscious in the bathtub of the Roswell, Georgia home she shared with Nick Gordon two months ago. Today she lies in a medical rehab facility in a medically induced coma.

Last week Cissy Houston shared her thoughts on Bobbi Kristina's recovery, saying that hope is fading. Now Chaka Khan, singer and close friend of the late Whitney Houston, has weighed in with her thoughts on Bobbi Kristina Brown, her lifestyle, and her present condition.

"I can't say I was shocked...but I was definitely hurt, disappointed. I've been in conversation with the family," she said in a Mirror UK Online report. "Everyone's devastated, everyone. I love Bobbi Kristina, I love Whitney, I love Bobby Brown. I love Cissy--I love them all."

Chaka Khan believes prayer is Bobbi Kristina Brown's only hope.

"But we just have to wait for what happens next. All I want to do is be there for them," she said. "I just need to pray."

Cissy Houston said during a radio interview last week that she doesn't pray that way.

“I don’t pray like that,” Bobbi Kristina Brown's grandmother explained. “I give it to God one time, because I know he’s able, and I cannot change a thing. So I’m asking everyone to pray to the Lord, who we know can do something about it.”

“If he works a miracle, thank God,” Cissy Houston added. “If it happens the other way, I’m all right.”

Regardless of how people choose to pray, the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown is no doubt clinging to hope that those prayers will bring her back to them. Medically, however, that hope seems to be diminishing.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is now at the DeKalb Medical facility in Atlanta. A criminal investigation into what happened on that fateful day two months ago is being conducted by the Roswell, Georgia Police Department. It hasn't been confirmed as to whether Nick Gordon is under investigation or not.

Fortunately Bobby Brown and the rest of Bobbi Kristina Brown's family has friends like Chaka Khan to lean on during this difficult time. Whether Bobbi Kristina lives or dies, she and Cissy Houston seem to accept that her life rests solely in God's hands.

As the days, weeks, and now months tick away, do you think there's any chance Bobbi Kristina Brown will make a complete recovery?
