Bobby Brown has released a statement about his daughter Bobbi Kristina’s weekend health emergency, requesting for privacy as she recovers from a near-drowning.
The 21-year-old was found face down in a bathtub by her husband Nick Gordon, who performed CPR on her before emergency medics arrived at the couple’s home and took unconscious Brown to a nearby hospital.
Amid conflicting reports suggesting Bobbi Kristina is both stable and suffering from low brain function, her father, who rushed to be at her bedside on Saturday, has broken his silence and released an official statement.
It reads: “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.”
Meanwhile, the My Prerogative singer’s lawyer adds, “The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia is accurate. No additional information will be forthcoming.”
The incident comes almost three years to the day Bobbi Kristina’s mother, Whitney Houston, drowned in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel. The soul superstar’s death was drug related.
Meanwhile, stars have reacted to the news of Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization, with Missy Elliott and Ciara among those who have taken to social media to offer support to the 21 year old.
The rapper tweets, “Still Praying 4 Bobbi Kristina I see sum (sic) ppl (people) making jokes. She lost her mom thats tougher than u may think 2 deal with,” while Ciara adds, “Prayers For Bobbi Kristina”, and songwriter Diane Warren, who wrote Whitney Houston hits Could I Have This Kiss Forever and I Didn’t Know My Own Strength, writes, “hope Bobbi Kristina gets the help she needs Poor thing, almost 3 yrs to the day her mom passed and the same thing almost happened to her.”
