Hello Jewels and Gems,
It has been a while since I have brought you a Celebrity Tuesday, and this one is close to my heart.
I was so sad this past weekend when I heard that Whitney Houston’s daughter, 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face down unresponsive in a tub. According to police spokeswoman, Lisa Holland, Bobbi Kristina was found “unresponsive, meaning not breathing, no heartbeat.” Bobbi Kristin’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her facedown in their Georgia home, around 10:20am last Saturday morning. Gordon began CPR until paramedics arrived, but it is unclear how long she went without oxygen.
She is currently in a medically induced comma, breathing through a ventilator. The extent of her brain function will not be know until the medical sedatives are reduced. Her immediate family has been by her bedside.
This comes at a crucial time for Bobbi Kristina, as it occurred so close to the three year anniversary of the death of her mother Whitney Houston. Whitney was found dead in a tub, almost exactly a three years ago, just shy of two weeks to-the-day, in a Beverly Hills hotel. Her death occurred on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards where she was scheduled to perform.
Bobbi Kristina idolized her mother and also looked forward to growing a career in entertainment. Our prayers are with her family.
Her father, Bobbi Brown released this statement this past Sunday: “Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”
I was devastated by this news, as I have been watching Bobbi Kristina grow up, standing and at times performing with her mother on stage. I have been a huge Whitney Houston fan since I was a little girl. Man, I really hope Bobbi Kristina recovers and make it through this. Hospital officials will not comment on her condition at this time.
Thankfully, there have not been any ties to drug abuse at this time, and investigators are still looking into how Bobbi Kristina ended up in the bathtub.
My advice, during times of crisis like this it is important for families to band together and support each other. I hope and pray that Bobbi Kristina will learn from her parents mistakes, and not end up picking up their bad habits.
Let’s send up our prayers for Bobbi Kristina.
