Bobbi Kristina Brown’s health has taken a turn for the worse as she fights for her life in an Atlanta hospital, according to media reports.
Some of Bobbi Kristina’s organs have started to shut down and life support machines may not be able to keep her alive much longer, TMZ reported this weekend.
Despite this latest grim development, sources told the entertainment website that Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, continues to hold out hope that she will get better and wants to keep her on a ventilator.
The 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Brown was found unconscious and face down in her bathtub on Jan. 31. She was rushed to an Atlanta-area hospital, where she’s been in a medically induced coma since.
Days after her admission, doctors told the family there was little they could do to save the famous offspring.
The organ failure reports come just days after family members said Bobbi Kristina was showing signs of improvement.
Last week, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah Brown revealed that she appeared to be getting better and was “opening her eyes.”
“There are so many signs showing us that she will be OK. Krissi is fine,” Brown told Fox 5 Atlanta. “She’s opening her eyes. Krissi is doing well right now. She is.”
Leolah Brown also said she thinks Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, will “110 percent” be charged for a crime when the investigation into Bobbi Kristina’s condition is completed.
A public prayer vigil was held for Bobbi Kristina on Monday night in Riverdale, Georgia, to the backdrop of Whitney Houston songs. Riverdale Mayor Dr. Evelyn Wynn-Dixon noted what’s important about the tragic situation.
“Forget that he [Bobby Brown] is a renowned artist. That her mama, the late Whitney, was a renowned artist. These [are] still people. They bleed and hurt like us,” Wynn-Dixon said.
Representatives for R&B singer Brown did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on Bobbi Kristina’s prognosis.
