Bobbi Kristina’s brain damage is “irreversible”

The mother of the late Whitney Houston has spoken up since Bobby Brown claimed Bobbi Kristina "is awake" and "watching" him. 

The 81-year-old has confirmed that she is no longer in a medically induced coma, but she is still unresponsive.

Cissy told Us Weekly: "I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive,"

She continued: "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me. We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers."

Bobbi Kristina's father,  Bobby Brown, got people talking as he addressed a crowd in Dallas recently about his daughter being awake. 

Cissy has now clarified the situation. 

The 22-year-old was found face down in the bathtub at her home on January 31 by her boyfriend Nick Gordon.

Bobby's lawyer told Us Weekly that she has improved and will "live a long life" but sadly, the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

We are hoping her condition will improve and our thoughts are with the family.
