TMZ reports that Bobbi Kristina’s condition is really serious and that her brain function has “significantly diminished”. This finding is the result of tests made on Brown in the hospital. Whitney Houston’s estranged husband, Bobby Brown, is reportedly at his daughter’s bedside the whole time.
Much has been said regarding the similarities between what happened to Bobbi Kristina as well as Whitney Houston’s death. Both happened in February just before the Grammy’s, and both women had a history with drug abuse. And while cocaine was a contributing factor in Whitney Houston’s death, police released a statement saying that no drugs were found in Bobbi Kristina’s home.
