A representative for the Houston family has said Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late entertainer Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, has died, about six months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub. She was 22 years old.
Bobbi Kristina died on Sunday at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Ga., after she was found in the suburban Atlanta townhome she shared with Nick Gordon, the man she called her husband, in late January. A police report described it as a “drowning.”
“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months,” Kristen Foster, a representative for the Houston family said Sunday.
Bobbi Kristina was born to the multiple Grammy-award winning singer in Livingston, N.J., on March 4, 1993, eight months into her mother’s rocky marriage to the music industry bad boy.
Her grandmother is the American soul and gospel singer Cissy Houston.
Despite being born in the spotlight, Bobbi Kristina, who tweeted about getting her career “off the ground” just weeks before she was hospitalized, never attained a fraction of the stardom of her late mother.
Aside from her family’s short-lived reality TV show, The Houstons: On Our Own, Bobbi Kristina mostly appeared in online “selfies” and paparazzi images.
Despite the differences in Bobbi Kristina’s and Whitney’s careers, there are eerie similarities in the way the women lived and died.
While the exact cause of Bobbi Kristina’s death has yet to be determined, Whitney was also found unresponsive in a bathtub of water.
