It’s been almost two weeks since Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub by partner Nick Gordon. Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s family have been spending time at Emory Hospital, hoping and praying for Bobbi Kristina’s recovery despite rumors that her major organs have stopped functioning.
Last week, Bobbi Kristina’s cousin Jerrod Brown released a statement saying that Gordon was seeking legal action against the Brown and Houston family for not allowing him to see his alleged wife. Gordon has maintained a rocky relationship with Bobbi Kristina’s relatives and one member is even seeking a restraining order against him.

In response to Jerrod’s statement, Gordon finally broke his silence to squash rumors that he’s suing the family. “Mr. Gordon’s only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina,” his attorney said. “He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon.”
The Brown family is also requesting that the media stop speaking to “unauthorized members of the family,” pointing out Jerod in particular. “Jerod Brown continues to make statements and appear on television, however, he has not had any communication with Bobby Brown or the Houston Family. He must be disregarded,” read a statement released by Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen.
Over the weekend, TMZ reported that Bobbi Kristina’s health has further deteriorated, saying that Brown’s organs have started failing to function. The family, however, is saying that reports are being overblown and that Bobbi Kristina was making noticeable progress. The New York Daily News said that Brown was “moving her eyes,” giving hope to the family of her recovery.
A source from the family told People Magazine that police are searching for evidence of foul play. The family claimed that Gordon is being vetted by authorities and that the police are looking for signs of removal of evidence from the crime scene to cover-up any possible drug use in the case.
