After months in hospital, Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Brown has been moved from hospital into hospice care, as he health continues to worsen.
A statement from the Houston family was released to the media today via the newsgathering outlet Associated Press. "Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate," read the message from Bobbi's aunt Pat Houston.
"As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
It is believed that the 22-year-old has been taken off life support and all medications helping to keep her alive, and that her organs are now failing. Bobbi has not regained consciousness since she was discovered face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Atlanta, Georgia at the end of January.
This is the first time Bobbi's family have made an official statement about her condition in months, despite constant unfounded rumours that the young singer was either getting better or getting worse. On numerous occasions her death was also wrongly reported in the media.
Back in March, Bobbi's father Bobby Brown told crowds at a public appearance in Texas that his daughter was "awake" and "watching" him, although he later became clear he did not mean the statement literally. The R&B star, who was married to Whitney Houston for 14 years, was said to be pushing for Bobbi to be kept on life support, though other family members had different wishes.
Bobby and Pat were appointed co-guardians of the tragically ill singer last month. The bad news comes three years after Whitney herself died following a similar incident.
The music icon was discovered submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hilton in February 2012, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
