LOS ANGELES, United States, Jul 27 – Bobbi Kristina Brown, 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.
“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,” a short family statement said, adding she was surrounded by loved ones as she slipped away.
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.
She passed away, according to the TMZ celebrity website, after her family decided to “take her off all meds.”
Her death – which a source told Entertainment Tonight 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.
Many Houston fans sent messages of support for the family on Twitter, saying Bobbi Kristina would be reunited with her mother.
“Rest In Heaven. You were loved, Bobbi Kristina Brown,” actress and singer Holly Robinson Peete said on Twitter.
Oprah Winfrey tweeted: “Peace at Last!”
Grammy-winning performer Missy Elliott tweeted: “My heart is truly heavy. May u rest in peace with your mommy.”
