Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in the bathtub inside her Georgia home on Saturday, and for the first time since word of the situation hit the media, her father, Bobby Brown, is speaking out. Bobbi Kristina is the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston. Houston died just under three years ago. She was found unresponsive in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

Bobby Brown reportedly rushed to his daughter's side once learning of the frightening situation. He issued a statement on Sunday.

"Privacy is requested in this matter," Bobby said in a statement to E! News. "Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time."

"The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia is accurate," Brown's lawyer added. "No additional information will be forthcoming."

Bobbi Kristina's condition is a bit unclear. Some media outlets have reported that she is in a medically induced coma, while others are listing her condition as stable.

Nick Gordon, who was raised by Whitney Houston, and now is married to Bobbi Kristina Brown, found his wife in the bathtub on Saturday. A friend was there as well. Gordon is said to have started CPR, which was taken over by paramedics when they arrived on the scene.

Hopefully the next statement Bobby Brown issues will have more concrete--as well as more positive--information about his daughter. It will also be interesting to learn if Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston's mom and Bobbi Kristina's grandmother, is at the hospital with the family members, too.
