Pat Houston


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.



Despite the ongoing feud that has been raging between the Browns and the Houstons, Bobby Brown has come to the defence of his ex-sister-in-law, Pat Houston.

The 46-year-old father of Bobbi Kristina has denied sensational claims made by his sister, Leolah Brown, that Pat wanted her niece to die, because the cost of keeping her alive was dipping into Pat’s inheritance.

Sources close to Mr Brown told TMZ that “Bobby claims Leolah is making it all up and hasn’t even been around his daughter – so she has no idea what Pat’s feelings are about Bobbi Kristina’s condition.”

Leolah posted to her Facebook page earlier this week to bash Bobbi Kristina’s co-guardian.

"If Pat knew The God that I know, instead of trying to inherit my niece’s money for her personal gain, she would mind her own business and go find A JOB for herself without continuously working so hard to destroy my niece.”

Despite the two families disagreeing on the best course of action for the daughter of the late Whitney Houston, the source says that Bobby is furious and Leolah’s sensationalist claims have gone way too far.

Could Bobby sticking up for Pat signal the start of a possible reconciliation between the two families?



As the heart-breaking story continues, the fate of Bobbi Kristina has yet again become unclear. 

Her mother's and father's families, the Houstons and the Browns, have been at war over the particulars of her medical treatment – and it seems they are no closer to making any firm decisions about her future.

"Bobbi Kristina remains completely unresponsive. She cannot communicate," a Houston family source told PEOPLE.com today.

"The heartbreak and the pain we feel in seeing her that way is beyond words."

However, they added – likely in response to Brown family criticisms, that "no one is trying to pull the plug. No one is saying goodbye." 

In March, the 22-year-old was moved from hospital to an Atlanta rehab facility for longer-term care. 

The Browns say she has even been removed from life-support – however, she remains unresponsive to her surroundings. She also requires a breathing tube, which was inserted into her neck three months ago. 

It seems that the Houstons want to restrict medical intervention so that she can die in peace, but the family of Bobbi Kristina's father are adamant that improvements in her condition have been noted, and that she may yet regain consciousness. 

Just days ago, reports were circulated that the daughter of Whitney Houston was being taken home so she could die in peace.

However, this has now been vehemently denied, with Bobbi’s aunt, Leolah Brown, condemning Pat Houston, Bobbi’s co-guardian.

Leolah revealed this week that the only child of the late Whitney does not require life-supporting machinery, and that she seems to be getting better.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown is not on life support anymore… and is continuing today to improve,” she stated in a Facebook post.

She continued: “And we will never give up on her. Hell no! Not one Brown!”

Leolah even sensationally claimed that Pat only wants Bobbi to die for her own personal gain.

“If Pat knew The God that I know, instead of trying to inherit my niece’s money for her personal gain, she would mind her own business and go find A JOB for herself without continuously working so hard to destroy my niece.”

Pat, 55, has yet to respond.

Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unresponsive in a bath tub on January 31. It is believed that her doctors are of the opinion that she has suffered extensive and irreversible brain damage.
