Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to a hospice facility, and her fate is in God's hands. In an statement to ET, Pat Houston--the late Whitney Houston's sister-in-law, and one the executors of Bobbi Kristina's estate--thanked those who have prayed for her niece.

"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," she said. "As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."

Hospice care doesn't hasten death. It provides what is known in the medical community as 'end-of-life' services. A team of caregivers--including a mix of physicians, nurses, grief counselors, clergy and volunteers--work together to provide these services and keep the patient comfortable as the body goes about the natural process of shutting down.

Another source close to Bobbi Kristina Brown reported on Wednesday that the 22-year-old's organs were failing, and that she has stopped receiving all medications. That may include all artificial sources of nutrition and hydration, too.

In another very disturbing report, a lawsuit filed by another of Bobbi Kristina Brown's conservators on Wednesday claims that Nick Gordon both physically abused Bobbi Kristina and stole thousands of dollars from her. Nick Gordon was among the people to first discover Bobbi Kristina Brown unconscious in her bathtub nearly five months ago.

The court-appointed conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed the lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court on Wednesday, June 24. In the court documents, Nick Gordon, 25, is accused of controlling Bobbi Kristina Brown by limiting who she could interact with. The lawsuit claims "Gordon often answered her cell phone, would not allow her to make appointments without his approval, and manipulated her bank relationship so that he could access her money."

"This was all part of a scheme to benefit from her wealth," the court papers read.

The lawsuit also accuses Nick Gordon of domestic violence, which includes "punching [Bobbi Kristina Brown] in the face, knocking out a front tooth, and dragging her upstairs by her hair."

Is it possible that Nick Gordon will be charged with the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown once she passes away in hospice care?

Sources close to the both Bobby Brown and Pat Houston say her death could come at any time now.

It's tragic that Bobbi Kristina Brown's life may soon be over. Her family has no doubt prolonged the inevitable by keeping her on life support for all these months, but who can blame them for trying and holding on to hope?

Whitney Houston's mother--Bobbi Kristina Brown's grandmother--Cissy Houston, has had the most realistic outlook about Bobbi Kristina for the duration of this tragedy.

"Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me. We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers," she said back in April.

Prayers are no doubt with Cissy Houston, as well as the entire family, as they wait and watch for Bobbi Kristina Brown to die.
