Update: Monday afternoon a source close to the family told CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin that Brown had opened and closed her eyes a few times. However, doctors reportedly told family members not to read too much into it.


The Houston-Brown family is still holding out hope that Bobbi Kristina Brown will pull through after being hospitalized over the weekend and placed in a medically induced coma

As previously reported, the 21-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston was found lying facedown in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia home on Jan. 31, and since then, doctors have been working tirelessly to help the aspiring songstress. 

A rep for the Houston family released a new statement to Us Weekly about Brown’s condition on Monday, Feb. 2, saying, “Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time."

On Sunday, Feb. 1, Bobby Brown released a statement, noting, “Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time."

Brown flew in on Saturday with famous family friend Tyler Perry to be by his daughter’s side. Bobbi Kristina was found by her estranged husband Nick Gordon, who administered CPR until the police arrived.

According to officers, no drugs were found “out in the open” during the preliminary investigation of Brown’s home. 

Almost exactly three years ago, iconic pop diva Houston was found dead at the age of 48 in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills Hotel on Feb. 11, 2012.
