Bobbi Kristina Brown's family is still hoping for the best. Amid conflicting information about the 21-year-old's current condition, her relatives Tina and Shayne Brown (singer Bobby Brown's sister and nephew, respectively) say she's "progressing."
"She's getting better," Shayne told Entertainment Tonight on Monday, Feb. 9, the night of the Brown family's candlelight prayer vigil in Riverdale, Ga., for Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston. "We just ask for people to continue to pray."
Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically induced coma since Jan. 31, when she was hospitalized after being found unresponsive in a tub at her home in Roswell, Ga. She's currently being cared for at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., where a steady stream of loved ones — including grandmother Cissy Houston — have been visiting over the last week.
"Uncle's in good spirits," Shayne told ET of Bobby, 46. "It's just family issues right now. Uncle just wants his privacy. The family wants its privacy."
On the subject of family issues, Shayne and his mom Tina also addressed their headline-making hotel fight on Feb. 5. "I was upset," Tina told ET. "You know, I've been dealing with my niece and her being in the hospital. It was just a lot of emotions and I had a drink and I was frustrated and I was trying to make a point and I threw a glass. Unfortunately, it hit my son."
Shayne added that the situation "was blown out of proportion," and that he and his mom love each other.
They're feeling the love from elsewhere, too. Following the vigil in Georgia on Monday night, Bobby Brown's lawyer expressed the family's gratitude for all the well-wishes. "We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina," attorney Christopher Brown told Us Weekly in a statement. "The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended."
He went on to address false reports about Bobbi Kristina's condition, the most recent of which claims that she'll be taken off of life support on the Feb. 11 anniversary of her mother's death.
"However, the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the Internet are egregious, false, and will be dealt with at an appropriate time," the statement continued. "In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, and the Daily Mail (UK) citing police sources, family sources, and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be 'first' has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence."
The statement ended with a note from Bobby Brown: "We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for Bobbi Kristina. God is hearing our prayers."
