Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, is reportedly in a medically-induced coma after she was found facedown and unresponsive Saturday in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia, home.
Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital and has been placed in a medically-induced coma to protect her brain as she fights for her life.
On everyone’s mind is what could have happened to Bobbi Kristina. The déjà vu sense of Bobbi Kristina’s husband finding her facedown in the tub — exactly in the the same manner in which her mother was discovered at her death — is disturbing.
It’s no secret the 21-year-old has faced some of the same demons as her mother and her father, Bobby Brown, after the devastating death of her mother, nearly three years ago on Feb. 11, 2012.

“Bobbi Kristina will be the first person to say that she has used in the past, and that she dealt with a lot of pressure from growing up in the spotlight. You’ve seen the pictures on the Internet, so you know,” a source close to the family told People magazine. “But as of five months ago, she swore up and down that she wasn’t using, and she seemed very adamant.”
According to the friend, Bobbi Kristina was well aware that she struggled with many of the same addictions as her mother.
“The last time I talked to her was before Halloween, and I said, ‘You know that we’re worried about you. I hope you’re not using.’ And she said, ‘I know how my mother died, and I’ve learned from her mistakes.'”

Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, has addressed the negative impact her daughter’s death has had on her granddaughter.
“Of course I worry about her,” said Cissy. “It doesn’t mean that she is going to follow her [mother’s] same path. She could but anybody could. I don’t want to jinx her. I’m trying to make sure she doesn’t.”
In March 2014, Bobbi Kristina came under scrutiny once again for her emaciated appearance, but she fought back on Twitter.

This past July, a photo appeared on her Instagram account showing her allegedly smoking pot out of a bong. Once again, she denied the photo was hers on Twitter.
I've never posted any photo of me doing anything ! This is someone trying to tarnish and make a horrible name for MYSELf. People are insane

The irony of how she was discovered by husband Nick Gordon seems all the more questionable when reading a tweet Bobbi Kristina posted this week.

Investigators continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
It’s a sad and frightening situation for the Brown, Gordon and Houston families and everyone is hoping Bobbi Kristina pulls through and can find some peace in her heart and life.
