Bobbi Kristina Brown Suffering Seizures, Fighting for Life in New Hospital
After suffering a series of seizures, Bobbi Kristina Brown is being treated at a new hospital in Atlanta, according to media reports.
The daughter of R&B singer Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was moved to Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital on Monday after initially being treated at a smaller medical facility closer her home in suburban Roswell, Georgia, CNN reported Tuesday.

In a scenario eerily similar to her mother’s death, Bobbi Kristina was found submerged, face down in her tub. She was rushed to North Fulton Hospital and placed in a medically induced coma. However, her immediate prognosis was described as bleak.
She is in “really bad shape,” an individual close to the Houston family told CNN.
“Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst,” the individual said of loved ones who have gathered at the 21-year-old’s bedside — including her father Bobby Brown and husband Nick Gordon.

The source also shared that Bobbi Kristina’s eyes had opened and closed Monday, but doctors warned the family against reading too much into the movement. The medical team is reportedly attempting to reduce swelling on her brain, but they won’t know the extent of possible damage until she’s taken off of prescribed sedatives, the individual said.
The Roswell police department, which initially responded to the 911 call from Bobbi Kristina’s home, did not immediately return multiple calls made by TheWrap for comment.
In a previous statement, officer Lisa Holland said police administered life-saving measures until Brown could be transported to a hospital.

“Her husband and a friend located her in a bathtub this morning and she was unresponsive,” Holland said on Saturday. “He started CPR and a police officer took over lifesaving measures until an ambulance arrived. She was transported to the hospital. Please keep her and the family in your thoughts and prayers.”
“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” Bobby Brown said in a separate statement.
As to speculation about the involvement of drugs or alcohol in the incident,” officer Holland said, “So the police took a search warrant on the home. Before the warrant — initially when the police went into the home — there [was] nothing there that indicated that anything out of the ordinary happened. There were no drugs out in the open.
“We don’t leave any stone unturned,” Holland added.
