Bobbi Kristina Brown has been on life support for two weeks today, after being discovered face down and unresponsive in her bathtub. Today the New York Daily News reports that her organs are starting to fail, but despite that, Bobby Brown--her father--refuses to remove her from life support.

Family sources say several of Bobbi Kristina Brown's organs are now shutting down. This is a vast cry from the reports her aunts gave at a vigil for Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's only child on Monday. What a difference just a few days have made.

Bobbi Kristina's aunt, Tina Brown, told the media then that her niece was "progressing" and that she was "getting better." Another aunt, Keolah Brown, told an Atlanta TV station that Bobbi Kristina was "moving her eyes" and that her doctors said "she is improving."

Bobby Brown has spoken out regarding statements made by some family members--most especially Bobbi Kristina Brown's cousin, Jerod Brown.

Jerod Brown gave an interview earlier in the week about both Bobbi Kristina Brown and her partner Nick Gordon. Bobby Brown issued a statement via his lawyers regarding Jerod Brown.

"At this time it is requested that the media cease speaking with unauthorized members of the family," a statement from Bobby Brown's legal counsel reads. "The integrity of the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina must remain uncompromised. Various members of the family have provided media interviews, however, none of them are approved visitors to see Bobbi Kristina. None of them have firsthand knowledge of Bobbi Kristina's treatment and the medical staff at Emory University Hospital has not communicated with them."

"In particular, Jerod Brown aka Jerod Carter aka YF Kennedy, continues to makes statements and appear on television, however, he has not had any communication with Bobby Brown or the Houston family," the statement continues. "He must be disregarded. Please do not attend any 'meet and greet' organized by Jerod Brown as he is unable to provide access to Bobbi Kristina or information on her condition. This is a criminal investigation and we do not need this side show."

"We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers."

It's certainly heartbreaking to hear news about Bobbi Kristina Brown and the report that some of her organs are shutting down. It's sad enough that the Brown family has to deal with this entire ordeal, but insult is no doubt added to injury when people like Jerod Brown speak to the media without authorization from the family.
