Bobbi Kristina Brown, is the only child of pop legend Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, died Sunday aged 22, six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home.
Bobbi Kristina‘s parents separated in 2006 and divorced in 2007, with Houston awarded custody of their daughter, amid claims of abuse and drug use in the high-profile relationship.
Kristina’s mother, Houston was reported to have been overdosed on drugs and alcohol before drowning, and that a drug-related heart damage played a part in her death
After her mother’s death, Bobbi Kristina — hoped to follow in Houston’s footsteps as a singer.
Bobbi Kristina — sole heir to Houston’s estate — was discovered face down and unresponsive in her bathtub in her Atlanta, Georgia home on January 31.
She was revived by emergency crews but lost significant brain function and was placed in a medically induced coma. She died at a hospice in Duluth, Georgia.
The circumstances that led to Bobbi Kristina being pulled unconscious from a bathtub are similarly murky.
In February, US media reported that police had opened a criminal probe intoBobbi Kristina‘s boyfriend Nick Gordon, who reportedly said that it was he who found her in the bathtub.
She passed away, according to the TMZ celebrity website, after her family decided to “take her off all meds.”
There had been growing fears for Bobbi Kristina‘s long-term health after she was moved to the Duluth hospice a month ago.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, her condition has continued to deteriorate,” her aunt, Pat Houston, said in a statement at the time.
Her death — was linked to an apparent drug overdose — drew eerie parallels to that of her mother, who was found face down in a bathtub in a Los Angeles hotel on February
11, 2012, on the eve of the Grammy Awards.
