Bobby Brown spoke out via his lawyer on Friday, June 19, to address ongoing speculation about his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s current condition. The 22-year-old only child of Bobby and his late ex-wife Whitney Houston has been under constant medical care since Jan. 31, when she was found unresponsive in a tub at her home near Atlanta, Ga.
“Due to the numerous false reports and sensationalism regarding Bobbi Kristina over the last two weeks, there is a need to comment,” Bobby’s legal counsel Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC told Us Weekly in a statement. “Bobbi Kristina is not going home to die as numerous news affiliates and websites have reported.”
Christopher went on to slam a new report that Bobby, 46, is fighting with his sister Leolah Brown because of a Facebook post she wrote recently about Bobbi Kristina and Pat Houston.
“Furthermore, let me be clear, Bobby Brown has not made any comments to TMZ or any reporting agency, despite the TMZ article reporting that he is feuding/angry with his sister Leolah Brown,” the statement noted. “Bobby Brown never gave an interview to TMZ.”
Christopher also reiterated his previous plea for people to ignore Bobbi Kristina’s cousin Jerod Brown. “In addition, please do not report or follow Jerod Carter, aka Jerod Brown, aka YF Kennedy, on the Bobbi Kristina ‘Prayer Tour,'” he stressed. “Bobby Brown is not associated with the Prayer Tour and does not support it.”
The statement included a message from Bobby himself, too, who was recently appointed Bobbi Kristina’s co-guardian with Pat Houston.
“Unless you hear it directly from me or through my attorney, do not believe any words attributed to me,” he said. “I am making decisions with Pat Houston and we are working together for the medical care of my daughter. I do not have time for the frequent side shows that others choose to engage in almost on a daily basis.”
He added: “Right now we are focused on Bobbi Kristina’s medical prognosis and the criminal investigation. These are the priorities for us. Whoever had a hand in causing my daughter’s injuries needs to be brought to justice.”
