Bobbi Kristina Brown found ‘unresponsive’ in bathtub, she’s in a coma now


The last time we covered Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was back in 2012. That was when Bobbi Kristina announced that she was engaged to her adopted brother Nick Gordon. Well, almost a year ago, Bobbi and Nick did confirm their marriage – it was like a secret wedding or something. Anyway, that was all just background because I personally forgot that she and Nick had actually married and I was surprised when I heard a reference to Bobbi Kristina’s “husband”. Now that we’ve got the background, here’s the sad news: on Saturday, Bobbi Kristina was found “unresponsive” by her husband in the bathtub in their Georgia home.

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home — and taken to a hospital where she is now breathing … TMZ has learned. Bobbi Kristina Brown’s husband Nick Gordon and a friend found her in the tub … according to police in Roswell, GA. We’re told her husband and friend immediately started CPR on her … until police and paramedics arrived.

We’re told police took over life-saving measures on the scene — and then she was taken by ambulance to a hospital. Doctors have now stabilized her breathing, and we’re told she is in ICU.

Still unclear why Bobbi fell unconscious. We’re told a friend made the call to 911 from Bobbi’s house. The circumstances are especially eerie — Whitney died in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton on February 11 … three years ago.

[From TMZ]

I can’t believe it’s already been three years since Whitney passed. As for Bobbi Kristina… she’s such a young woman. She’s only 21 years old. And she’s had to deal with a lot of crap already in such a short amount of time. It couldn’t have been easy for her to grow up around her parents’ drug and alcohol abuse, and Bobbi was only 18 when Whitney passed. I’m just saying, a lot of drama and craziness that early will really mess you up.

Late on Saturday, Bobbi’s father Bobby Brown arrived at the hospital. Tyler Perry – a family friend – is there too. Then her status was updated to the press: she’s currently in a medically-induced coma because of swelling in her brain. As for Bobbi Kristina’s husband, People Magazine has a story about how the Houston family never really liked him and they thought his relationship with and marriage to Bobbi Kristina was shady. Bobbi Kristina’s cousin is also swearing up and down that Bobbi doesn’t do drugs. The cops have executed a search warrant on her home looking for anything that might have made her lose consciousness.

We’ll update if the status of Bobbi Kristina’s condition changes.

Update: TMZ is now reporting that Bobbi’s brain function is “significantly diminished” and sources say the doctors are saying the situation does not look good.

    So sad. I hope she comes out of this soon.


    • poppy says:

      ita. and gets the help she needs.

    • AntiSocialButterfly says:

      If only. It doesn’t sound good to me as the statement ” Doctors stabilized her breathing” means she is mechanically ventilated. Probably doesn’t have a respiratory drive/ brainstem function. So sad; it’s as if she wanted to go like her mom because the heartache of missing her was too much.

  2. Luca76 says:

    So tragic. Prayers for her healthy recovery.

    Can we please stop calling Nick her adopted brother when he in fact isn’t? Whitney never adopted him. Bobbi obviously never considered him to be a brother.

    • Stef Leppard says:

      Adopted in spirit. Whitney raised him for half his life.

      • Luca76 says:

        So what he isn’t her brother just because he was close to Whitney. There was no adoption. There is no incest and however unhealthy their relationship may be the ick factor is a media creation which Bobbi doesn’t deserve with all the other problems she has.

      • Bridget says:

        Whitney raised him as her son for a decade, more than half of Bobbi Kristina’s life prior to her mom’s death. The Houston family have a problem with that marriage, so please stop talking about this as though it’s just a media construct. He may not have been legally adopted but they were raised as brother and sister. Now, if you want to talk about whether or not Whitney Houston was actually capable of raising two children to be emotionally stable and healthy adults, that’s a different conversation.

      • bettyrose says:

        I don’t know anything about him or how he’s related, but if these two young people helped each other through difficult childhoods that others can’t relate to, I can see how they wanted to get married to formalize their connection. Anyway I truly hope she pulls through and has an opportunity to grow up and figure out how to oovercome her childhood demons.

      • Luca76 says:

        Whitney didn’t raise anyone she wasn’t capable of it. They may have been in the same household amongst an entourage of drug abusers but if they didn’t see themselves as siblings and there was no legal action taken they aren’t related.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        Who said anything about incest?

      • Bridget says:

        The question was never were they literally or legally related. Bobbi Kristina was just 18 years old when her mother died and someone she turned to for trust and comfort drastically changed the nature of their relationship when she was at her most vulnerable. There have been A LOT of questions asking if he saw his opportunity and took advantage of her.

      • Luca76 says:

        @Stef Leppard On a lot of sites have mocked the relationship and labeled it as incest.

        @ Bridget that all may be true but I do think the mischaracterization of their relationship is probably part of what created a you and me against the world dynamic.

      • Bridget says:

        But we’re NOT mischaracterising. Everyone in that family has stated that those two individuals were raised as brother and sister. The relationship only changed when Whitney died and Bobbi Christina came into a great deal of money, not to mention Bobbi Christian’s own substance abuse issues.

    • ScrewStewrat99 says:

      So do you feel that way about Woody Allen and Soon Yi too? Because she was technically never Woody Allens daughter, but he sure gets some flack for it (and rightfully so imo). They were raised together and Whitney loved and treated him like a son (for her standards). They might not be related by blood, but it’s still weird. I can see how they relied on each other growing up and I can see Betty Rose’s point, but I still find it weird.

      • M says:

        Good point! I hate it when people say “well Soon Yi was never Woddy’s daughter”. Please- that man is sick.

      • Luca76 says:

        Such a huge difference first off Woody was an adult when Soon-Yi was a child. There is a 35 year age gap. He was in a position of authority over her and is the father of her siblings. While technically he wasn’t her step father he was in a position to parent and influence her. In light of the accusations against him it’s possible that he was engaging in sexual abuse against her when she was underage if not when she was a child. To me if you take out the near incest of the situation with Allen and just leave the possibility of abuse it is still just as gross and uncomfortable.

        Nick is a only a few years older than Bobbi. I’m betting they never saw themselves as siblings even if the adults (again the drug addled entourage around them) imposed that relationship on them.
        I don’t even think their marriage is healthy or that Nick is a good guy I just think it’s unfair to label it as something it wasn’t just to make it more sensational.

      • ol cranky says:

        not to p*ss people off on the Woody front but as skeevey as their relationship is Allen did not live with Soon Yi or any of the children in the home. Mia Farrow, herself, honed in on that point and made multiple comments that Allen was in no way a father [figure] to any of her children – not even his biological children with her. Farrow’s tune on that issue changed when she found out about Allen’s relationship with Soon Yi.

        In the Bobbi Kristina situation, her now husband did say publicly that Houston raised him as her child (whatever the hell that means, considering her drug use) and the family has said he was raised with Bobbi Kristina, etc. Just out of curiosity, wasn’t he in town with Houston when she died?

    • M says:

      I think people always say adopted brother to specify that they are not biologically related. Whitney called him her son, just because it was not made legal doesn’t change the fact that they lived every day for 10 years in the same house like brother & sister. I hope she recovers- she is so young. Sad!

  3. Charlotte says:

    Sad. Sad. Sad.

    I hope she gets better and gets the help she needs in her life.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I hope she recovers. How sad.

  5. smcollins says:

    So sad, and yes, eerie. I hope she pulls through and is able to live a happy & healthy life. She deserves it.

  6. Jen43 says:

    That is just so awful. Poor kid. Hope she fully recovers.

  7. NewWester says:

    Very sad news.

  8. Kaley says:

    Poor kid. Drugs are basically the only life she’s ever known. I know she misses her mom…get better soon.

  9. goolie Julie says:

    Whitney “raising” any child is a complete joke of a statement.. that woman did drugs all day as her poor daughter fended for herself a fact CrackNeys own DRUG DEALER said! he actually called DCF in Jersey to get BobbiKristina out of that drug den hell she was being subjected to… the woman chose to take drugs as did Bobby Brown. Bobbi Kristina didn’t have a choice in that and she is a sad product of that horrible upbringing. the only “love” she felt was from Nick Gordon and it is gros he was in the same insane druggie household as her but he was not her brother. it’s so very sad this poor girl never had a chance

    • Amelie says:

      Dependency on drugs & alcohol is VERY hard to kick; they are a way of coping with whatever ‘demons’ a person has. After learning to cope with problems in this maladaptive way, it is extremely difficult to get off drugs/alcohol and learn a healthy way of living. Many successful entertainers have experienced trauma & dysfunction in their early years and their art is part of their healthy way of coping. Let’s reach out to those who have this problem and not judge them.

    • Petee says:

      Sad too say but you are right,I watched that show and at the time she was a little girl.No child should have to be around what she was.Can you image what she saw when the cameras were off?Hoping her the best and people that have drug problems should be stop being so damn selfish and bringing a child into all this drama.Look where your little girl is now?

    • wolfpup says:

      Many children grow up in such drug-addicted homes. Some of these, stretch as far as their entire community, and is what surround the children at all times. It was obvious to me that Whitney had a rich and loving connection, with her daughter, that that her baby, Kristina, reciprocated with joy. Whitney under the spell of her husband, as she was, and drugs, and that so fast world of celebrity…how many souls can actually move beyond these types of facts, in their lives? We all know that we “should”, but easier said than done IMO.

      I hope that Kristina will be able to understand her vulnerabilities, because they are so gapping for her. It would be terribly difficult to go on without your momma, when she loved you so. Whitney was Kristina’s connection to the world, and to be left alone so young in the hands of celebrity industry, and it’s weirdos, and only a sketchy pa…who is on her side, really? She needs someone that she can trust and rely upon, who would help her finish growing up, and be comforted. (imo – another woman who is truly on her side – because men’s agendas can be so weighted). I hope love will save her – that’s what works!

    • Janet says:

      I watched Whitney’s career from 1984 when her first album was released. I think she was only 20 or 21 then. She came out of nowhere and zoomed into the stratosphere. I think she got too famous too fast, and then, God help her, along came Bobby Brown.

  10. Claire. says:

    Poor baby

  11. OhDear says:

    Hope she survives and has a quick and full recovery.

    • Janet says:

      It depends on how long she was face down in the water before she was discovered. Oxygen deprivation for more than 4 or 5 minutes has devastating consequences. If she was not found and resuscitated after a few minutes, she could be in a vegetative state for the rest of her life.

  12. mom2two says:

    Very sad, she is so young. Prayers for a recovery for her.

  13. Kim1 says:

    I feel empathy for Bobbi because I lost my mom at a similar age and I was lost for years.Fortunately I didn’t have to experience substance abuse , domestic strife,divorce,etc.I also didn’t have to hear my mother’s music and hear people calling her a druggie everyday.Bobbie also had to deal with being called ugly all her life because she didn’t look like Whitney.I am sure the Lifetime movie and the anniversary of her death approaching didn’t help matters.
    My prayers for her and her family.I hope she realizes that the pain will never end but it will get better.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I’m so sorry for your loss. My husband’s mother died when he was 14, and had it not been for his aunt, who knows where he would be now. My heart goes out to any young person who loses their mother – whether she was a good mother, as yours and my husband’s were, or one with more challenges, like Whitney. It’s hard at any age to lose your mother, but that’s just too young. Hugs to you. I’m glad you sound solid now. You were very strong in the face of such an unfair event.

    • melissa says:

      I agree with you.

      My mom died when I was 19. My father had an addiction, so I was on my own. Those were tough, angry years for awhile. If I had a lot of money and easy access to drugs, my life would have turned out differently for sure.

  14. Danskins says:

    Such a sad situation all around – hoping she has a speedy recovery.

  15. InvaderTak says:

    So sad. Hope she recovers and gets the help she needs.

  16. Chesty LaRue says:

    That poor girl never had a chance.
    So does her husband inherit her money if she dies? I’m getting shades of Anna Nicole Smith here

  17. minx says:

    So sorry about this. She is so young.

  18. Jane says:

    Something like this just breaks my heart. To hear how eerily similar this situation is to Whitney’s is a bit overwhelming. I pray for Bobbi.

    • Tippy says:

      Dumping the body of an unresponsive and presumably overdosing person into a tub filled with cold water is a popular home remedy.

      It’s supposed to shock the system back into consciousness assuming they still have a pulse.

      • Livealot says:

        Thank you for that insight.

      • anne_000 says:

        While reading up on this subject yesterday, I read that Whitney’s bath was full of very hot water. That surprised me.

      • LAK says:

        I never knew that. Learn something new every day. Does the water temperature matter by which I mean warm or cold water?

      • here's wilson says:

        this is so false…drug overdose causes respiratory distress which cannot be treated with cold water…I work for 911 and dispatch and we see people try this all the time….and fail

      • FLORC says:

        This crossed my mind as well. Trying to wake the person up by shocking the body.

        Cold water vs hot water does have a difference. Warm water relaxes the body and won’t stimulate the nerves in the same way. Much likethat old trick to dip a persons hand in water while sleeping they’ll have an accident. Warm water relaxes your muscles.
        And you don’t want to go into very hot or near boiling water without risk of damaging the body with burns. That leads into far worse complications while the body is already struggling. Though burning the skin could shock the body it’s not a good idea.
        Cold water is just the easiest way.

        here’s wilson
        I’m a health care professional and have seen some brought in to the hospital after being temporarily revived through an ice bath given before the paramedics arrived. Paramedics ofcourse confirming this. And this depends what this person is going through. Is there distress or failure? The variables are too great. Sometimes though cold water could bring about consciousness. It’s not a guarantee though by far.
        It doesn’t always work and shouldn’t not be done in place of calling 911.
        So, it’s not false. Peple do attempt this method and it has worked a handful of times that i’ve had detailed to me via the paramedics or those close to the patient giving 1st hand accounts.

        Yes. Whitney’s bath was filled with warm water and had the olive oil “gravy boat”. It really appeared she took her perscribed medication and simply relaxed into her bath losing her life.

      • mayamae says:

        I read a quote from a family friend that said the similarity to Whitney’s death is no accident. I took that to mean that this person was implying a deliberate suicide attempt.

      • Lucrezia says:

        I might as well use those dusty textbooks for something … there’s actually two reflexes that come into play here, and two different categories of drug.

        The first reflex is what FLORC was talking about: cold-shock. Ever walked into cold water and gasped? That’s not just surprise, the body’s reflex to sudden cold is to inhale sharply and then hyperventilate for a short period. So if someone has depressed breathing due to OD’ing on a depressant (e.g., alcohol or benzos), then dumping them in a cold bath will perk them up for a bit. But it’s shock driven … it wears off quite quickly (2-3 minutes) as they get used to the water. Might be enough to get them past the crisis, or they might stop breathing again.

        The second reflex is the diving reflex. When your face gets wet, the body’s automatic reflex is to slow the heartbeat. (It’s a mammalian thing, in its extreme form it’s what lets seals and dolphins hold their breath for so long under water). Cooler water slows the heartbeat more. So if the problem is that the heart is going too fast (likely with stimulants like cocaine, coffee or amphetamines), then dunking their head in cool water can help. Or even just a cold, wet compress applied to the face.

        What you don’t want to do is completely submerge someone (head and body) in icy water. Even if they manage not to gasp in shock and inhale water, the conflicting signals for the heart to simultaneously speed up and slow down can provoke a heart attack.

  19. MrsBPitt says:

    I remember watching Whitney and Bobbie Brown’s reality show a few times…it was always such a chaotic, crazy atmosphere…I always felt so bad for Bobbie Kristina…I hate to say this but I almost wasn’t that surprised when I saw the news (except for the part in the bathtub, thats just eerie)…Any child growing up in that atmosphere, any child that had two drug addicted parents, has a high rate to become addicted themselves…I just hope that she comes out of this and gets some help…

  20. Zigggy says:

    Very sad- makes me think of Peaches Geldof. I saw a forensics show that said it’s very unusual for an adult to drown in a bathtub, and it raises red flags for foul play.

  21. LAK says:

    This situation is so sad.

  22. Jaded says:

    Some news reports are now saying it’s a suspected drug overdose. I really hope it isn’t and she makes a full recovery….so very, very sad. Heart-breaking really.

    • sauvage says:

      Drug overdose was my first thought, too. I so feel for this girl. Growing up the way she did – damn. I hope she makes it.

      • Sarah says:

        I have read stories before about her using drugs. If the cops didn’t find drugs at her house, I would think it was because someone cleaned it up first. Very sad. It doesn’t look like she will recover.

    • FLORC says:

      I’m thinking this too.
      The cousin swearing up and down she didn’t use drugs means nothing. People can think because you are perscribed something it’s not a drug or it’s ok to use. That’s just not the case.
      Meant to post below.

    • Jag says:

      What I read said that there were no drugs found out in the open. Perhaps her husband and the “friend” disposed of them before calling paramedics?

      One other mode of thinking – was the husband abusive, and is the “friend” female? Was he having an affair and she found out and he killed her for it? Just speculating.

  23. Bridget says:

    I followed the link about the cousin because I thought it was odd that he was swearing that she doesn’t do drugs, because there’s been so much chatter about Bobbi Kristina for the last few years. He was saying that she wasn’t doing drugs NOW and that she was trying to give everything up.

    • anne_000 says:

      While reading up on this topic yesterday, I read that in the past there’s been photos of Bobbi Kristina doing lines of drugs (which I remember seeing); and that Whitney tried to have an intervention for her; that the first two years after Whitney’s death, Bobbi Kristina has had the ambulance called for her at least twice. So this cousin insisting that BK doesn’t do drugs makes no sense.

      So I think you’re right that there may be a different interpretation about what the cousin may have meant. But I think he’s wrong over all.

      It seems from what I’ve been reading that BK gets even more self-damaging near the anniversary of Whitney’s death.

  24. Jess says:

    This is so sad, I was hoping she’d be able to overcome her childhood and Whitney’s death, but not looking good. I wonder how long she was out, and if she’ll have brain damage now. I also wonder about her husband, if Whitney viewed him as a son wouldn’t he have access to her money and not need to marry Bobbi for those reasons? That’s definitely a strange relationship but I don’t know enough about it to judge really, I never knew he existed until she died.

    • Trashaddict says:

      This. I think the cerebral edema means her brain was without oxygen for a while. Some people come out of it OK, but that’s generally a bad sign. I’m sad for her. She’s had a rough life.

    • Artemis says:

      Apparently she has a ventilator or something. I read on other sites from people familiar with medical induced comas that she’s not going to make it and if she does, she will suffer grave consequences. Some people said even 5min. of oxygen deprivation caused their loved ones to pass away.

      There’s no info on how long BK was oxygen deprived but I find the circumstances fishy. No drugs were found yet BK was found face DOWN in the tub? If you drown accidentally, wouldn’t you pass out face up? Her ‘husband’ is a shady character tbh. Just recently, cops were called to their house in regards to a domestic dispute and nobody was there when they arrived. There are rumours that they weren’t even together anymore.

      I think this girl had a chance if it wasn’t for the people around her. She needed a better support network.

      • Kiki04 says:

        I don’t know how long she was down but it can go either way with anoxic brain injuries. I’ve seen people who have had a cardiac arrest and had no blood to the brain for some time do ok (i.e. wake up enough and be relatively functional at the end of the day, go to rehab) and others who never regain any sense of consciousness and eventually care was withdrawn. It’s probably something that they won’t know for a few days, they’re likely trying to temporize any further damage at this time and then will see what kind of neuro exam she has.

        It’s really sad, poor girl. Nothing you want to have happen to anyone, especially a young girl at 21.

      • FLORC says:

        This is something I won’t comment on because it would just be a guess. In situations like this without the facts it can’t even be an educated guess. Just a very broad shot in the dark.
        Too many stories and versions out there.

  25. Sea Dragon says:

    I hope she pulls through and gets the much needed help she needs to be okay with life. You just know the family is reeling right now.

  26. Angie says:

    Poor Bobbi Kristina. So much crap in her life. I am praying she comes out of this. :(

  27. Kiddo says:

    This reminds of Peaches Geldof. She died almost on the anniversary of her mother’s death. Hopefully Bobbi doesn’t die, but I’m sure her mother’s death weighed heavily on her as the calender can be the enemy of your happiness, marking past dark days.

  28. Livealot says:

    Medically induced coma is a bad sign. Prayers to her though I’m not surprised she did this.

    • Neuron says:

      Yes, brain edema is a bad, bad sign.

      • Tania says:

        Given that it’s showed up so soon, I’d say the lack of oxygen to her brain was significant. I don’t think she will make it, and for her sake I hope she doesn’t. If she survives she would be trached and in a persistent vegetative state.

    • Kiki04 says:

      Agreed. Makes me think they’re doing a cooling/re-warming protocol and that’s never a good sign when it comes to the brain. Poor girl.

    • Talie says:

      Yes, I just read the update on E! — sounds like Joan Rivers situation. She’s being kept on with machines.

    • FLORC says:

      It’s not a great sign, but it’s not a bad sign. Sometimes it’s needed for a better and full recovery.
      A friend in highschool got into a bad car accident. He was in a med induced coma for 2 weeks and made a full recovery with only a scar now hidden by his hair.
      It’s not good to assume the worst.

      • Tania says:

        Sorry Florc but cerebral edema is never good. Also, your friend had what was most likely a head bleed from a trauma, in which the pressure was relieved by a Burr hole/removing a flap of skull. That is not what she has. She has swelling from a full on lack of oxygen to the brain. I deal with these patients on a daily basis, see them die, see them live to become like vegetables. From heart attacks, overdoses, drownings, hangings, etc. it’s extremely sad. We always have the odd one who was caught early enough, only went a few minutes without oxygen and had really effective compressions done and we have seen those people not have swelling and show signs of waking up within a few days. But for a patient to have swelling within the first 24 hours (and likely also seizures) is indicative of a poor prognosis. It’s a very grave situation.

      • Valois says:

        Florc wasn’t talking about cerebral edema, she was talking about coma in general.

  29. joy says:

    When I heard this I wish I could say I was shocked but I wasn’t. Sad all around.

  30. Lucinda says:

    This poor kid. :(

  31. aquarius64 says:

    I hope Bobbi Kristina will get well. A medically induced coma is scary stuff.

    Judging from the news coverage and the sound bites that the Houston family can’t stand him, Bobbi’s husband is becoming a “person of interest” in the court of public opinion.

  32. Kiki04 says:

    Awful news. Hope she pulls through. It sounds like she has a rough road ahead.

  33. Olenna says:

    This is just heartbreaking news. I can’t imagine the pain and anguish her family are experiencing. I pray she has a full recovery.

  34. Esmom says:

    Sigh. So sad and scary.

  35. Amy says:

    I had a moment of anger for Whitney when I heard this.

    I know she had her own problems but I felt so angry she let this little girl grow up in such chaos and ugliness and then left her when she was most vulnerable. Bobbi Kristina being found in a bathtub made that even worse. I hope and pray she makes it’d be too tragic to die the exact same way as her Mom.

    Please wake up honey, don’t repeat your Mom’s mistakes, don’t be the person she was. Wake up and start anew.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I hope you had just as much anger for Bobby Brown.

      • Amy says:

        Why would I? Bobbi Brown was a sh*t human being, Whitney was an idiot for hooking up with him and staying with him above the needs of her daughter and her own drug use. Where is Bobbi now? He has to fly in to come see her from his new wife and child.

        I’m going to need women to stop treating terrible men like they’re the end-all when those same men have no problems moving on and leaving them behind. Whitney was primary care-giver for many years after Bobbi had moved on.

      • FingerBinger says:

        1)He’s her father. For a time Whitney and Bobby did raise her together or at least tried to. He should shoulder some blame.

        2) Bobby wasn’t the one that got Whitney hooked on drugs. Her own brother says he got her started using drugs. Bobby enabled Whitney for sure and they did drugs together ,but he wasn’t responsible for Whitney’s addiction.

      • Amy says:

        He can shoulder whatever blame he wants. When he wasn’t there Whitney was and there’s stories for days about how she screwed up her daughter.

        I don’t believe I ever said he was responsible for her addiction. I made it very clear that Whitney was the one still snorting and stumbling through her life and caring for her daughter long after Bobby was gone.

        If you pick an incompetent screw-up man and never get yourself together either then I’m going to blame you. This girl needed strong hands to keep her life together and she never had them. Let’s hope she survives.

        You’re giving a pass to Bobby brown because you disliked him from the start. I don’t think you understand what drugs do to a person in full. It’s not just physical and it’s not just about drugs. It’s about the relationships in your life. How Bobby treated Whitney and how the dynamic was often violent, emotionally damamging and dependent. It all plays a huge role you can’t write off if really lookinng at the situation for blame.

        There is at least equal blame. And Whitney by all accounts was trying to get better. After years of that abuse and trying to restart her career she needed perscription drugs to function.
        I think Whitney deserves blame, but you’re directing it towards her entirely and that isn’t correct.

        Your facts here also are incredibly wrong. Where did you get your info? Reality tv, blogs and rags? I ask because after cross checking your claims that’s alll I got back in searches.

      I pity them all, particularly Whitney and her daughter. This can be a hard world for women in the entertainment industry, especially when Whitney became a part of it. All of us need a bit of picking up – who can judge the groans of another?

  36. Dawn says:

    This is really sad, I hope she pulls through.

  37. Betti says:

    I hope she pulls through but medically induced coma’s are a bad sign – even if she does make it chances are high that there will be perm damage and she will need care for the rest of her life. Look at Michael Schumacher – he was in a medically induced coma for several weeks after his accident.

    As for the ‘husband’ – he has gold digger enabler written all over him. Didn’t Whitney kick him out and cut him off several months before she passed? She was’t even cold when he moved back into the house and ingratiated himself into Bobbi’s life, controlling everything. Unless there is a will he will get everything. I hope her father and extended family move quickly to protect her from the wasters who were/are taking advantage of her.

    God bless her!!

  38. IcyBlue says:

    Poor Bobbi Christina, like Peaches Geldof, their nightmare never died with their troubled and addicts mothers.

    • wolfpup says:

      I blame the troubles and the drugs…never, their mothers, who were all drowning in fear and helplessness.

  39. Cindy says:

    This poor girl has no one to look out for her best interests. Even if she wakes up, who will she have to care for her? Her “husband”? This is so sad. Sounds like she was surrounded by drugs and sick people her whole life and she will wake up (if she wakes up), to the same.

  40. Lyssa says:

    I think he beat her.

  41. nicegirl says:

    Praying for a full and fast recovery. How heartbreaking for those who love Bobbi K and Whitney.

  42. Kim1 says:

    She has diminished brain functioning according to TMZ.

  43. greenmonster says:

    I just can’t stop thinking how much this sounds like a scenario out of a crime show. Very rich woman and mother of a girl takes in a young boy and raises him as if he was her own son. Years later she dies – leaving her daughter as the sole heir. The boy gets nothing (or at least not much) since she never adopted him. Two years later the two get married, another year later the daughter is found unconscious in a bathtub (just like her mother) – found by her husband and a friend. If the daugther dies he will be her sole heir – I guess.
    It just is such a weird, tragic and sad situation – no matter what.

  44. phlyfiremama says:

    So if it wasn’t drugs, my very next question is what kind of injury incurred at what point would cause the brain to swell? She could have slipped and fallen, hitting her head. Foul play must also be suspected~I’m sure her estate is worth some cash.
    That poor young lady~she never really had a chance with her parents, did she? I hope she recovers from this.

    • wolfpup says:

      There are so many young ladies out there praying for a chance. (become a lifeboat).

      • mollb says:

        The swelling is caused by oxygen deprivation from the time she spent submerged in the water. Brain swelling alone does require a traumatic injury or foul play.

  45. LahdidahBaby says:

    I keep thinking of that Ohio cop who killed three wives and got away with it for a while…one of them he killed in a bathtub and then conveniently “found” her there when he came into the house with a convenient witness/friend he brought along. This just smells to me. Truly does. I hope they investigate this as a possible homicide if she doesn’t make it. Means, motive, opportunity: all there. Motive: money, of course.

  46. lucy says:

    Tragic. Godspeed.

  47. Bliss says:

    What an ongoing tragedy this child has been through all of her life.

    I pray for her recovery.

  48. Janet says:

    The latest report is that she is in on a ventilator in a medically induced coma. I talked to a doctor friend of mine and he said it doesn’t sound good. If she was deprived of oxygen for more than a couple of minutes, she could have devastating brain damage if she survives. Whether this was an accident, a suicide attempt or a homicide attempt, it’s a horrendous tragedy to have her life effectively cut short at such a young age.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Yes to everything you say. No matter what it is, attempted homicide, attempted suicide, or an accidental overdose, it’s tragic. This poor girl never really had a chance.

  49. Caz says:

    How people can think drugs are OK to take in this day & age is beyond me. An awful set of circumstances.

  50. Harry blaney says:

    Bobby brown. I am who I am! Conti facility.

  51. Dommy Dearest says:

    Only kinda surprised this was the last one posted and days after it happened. Prayers to the family.

  52. Adrien says:

    Man, that does not look good. I’m still hoping she will pull through. Just read an article about an athlete who woke up from coma after doctors told his family to take him off life support. Sure different circumstances but I want Bobbi to get well.

  53. Tania says:

    I think the police should be involved. I’m sure there are millions at stake. Perhaps she was going to divorce him? Or to add onto this, even with a pre-existing drug problem, he may have taken advantage and thrown her into the bath to get rid of her.

  54. LAK says:

    Is it a good thing to remain in such a coma for as long as she has been?

    • Betti says:

      No – the longer she’s in a coma (medically induced or not) the greater the chance of perm brain damage, however some people wake up and go on to make almost full recoveries – it all depends on the circumstances and the person.

      Both Michael Schumacher and Natasha Richardson were put in medically induced coma’s after their ski-ing accidents – Natasha never woke up and Michael is not in a good way (I believe he’s awake but not completely aware) – he was in a coma for several weeks. If the reports about Bobbi are to be believed she may fall into the latter’s situation – alive but not ‘there’.

  55. scout says:

    She is so young to through all this already, hope she will be alright and learns from this experience never to repeat it again.

  56. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    There were rumors of drug use and possible suicide attempt even before Whitney died. I think she must have had a tough childhood, and maybe nobody around to push her into getting help.

  57. Myra Sanders says:

    Y’all don’t get it she has been mad along time this child is in pain she lost her mom her one and only she can’t get another mom . I feel her I just lost my mom cancer I lost my mom 2 weeks before my birthday I don’t have no party’s I don’t do no Christmas nothing I miss my mom so bad that I sit alot alone in my room and just cry if no one have not lost a mom yet u don’t know what its like.

  58. Myra Sanders says:

    All I know I’m not being funny but if she do pull out she not going to be the same she not going to talk she just going to lay that’s it. I know about this thing.

  59. Myra Sanders says:

    I think her husband did that I think him and that other person was trying to kill her and make it look like she did it. Her dad need to look into that something don’t sound right. They did something to her put her in the tub said they was not around when it happen came back to fine her that way I don’t think they new what to do whit her so they had to call 911. Y’all feel me on this

  60. Myra Sanders says:

    The police need to look at her husband something just don’t sound right he did come from a poor mom and his mom was on drugs so he see that he can get what he want out of her and she might of put some of her money in his name they need to check things out something not right that husband got something to do whit her laying 1/2 alive.

  61. Myra Sanders says:

    Bobby Brown open y’all eyes have the police check out that husband and that other person. I can’t help it I keep seeing them to in my sleep trying to kill her. My dream’s always come out true

  62. casey grimes says:
