Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, is reportedly in stable condition on Sunday after being found unresponsive in a bathtub on Saturday morning.
According to People Magazine, Brown was discovered at her home by her husband Nick Gordon, who immediately began lifesaving procedures and phoned for help. While it’s not clear what caused the incident, a source says that Bobbi has struggled since her mother’s death. Houston was found in a hotel bathtub in 2012, having accidentally drowned with heart disease and cocaine as contributing factors.
“It’s been a difficult time for Bobbi Kristina, who’s struggled in the years after her mother’s death. She has been vacillating between extremes for a while now and is fighting grief and demons of her own creation. The loss of her mom and her intense craving for attention of any sort are just the tip of her mountain of issues,” the source said.
Bobbi Kristina was reportedly put into a medically-induced coma as soon as she was brought to the hospital to protect her brain from injury, but her cousin, Jerod Brown, told Sky News on Saturday that the family was hoping for a speedy recovery as she continued to improve.
“She’s pretty good right now, she’s around family. What I do want to say is thanks for all the prayers and support that the fans have been showing Bobbi Kristina. We’re just praying for a speedy recovery, that’s it,” Brown said.
One of the last things Bobbi Kristina posted on Twitter was about how difficult it is for a Pisces to accept things.
#Pisces have a hard time accepting reality. Once they do realize it, it hits them like a ton of bricks.

A friend of the family told People that Bobbi Kristina had admitted to using drugs in the past but was aware of what had happened to her mother and was intent on not making the same choices.
“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,'” the source said.
