Bobbi Kristina Brown Reportedly Being Removed From Life Support On Anniversary Of Whitney Houston's Death — UPDATE
Another heartbreaking update from Bobbi Kristina Brown's tragic situation. According to Page Six, Bobbi Kristina's family has decided to take her off of life support, but they're waiting to do so until Wednesday, Feb. 11 — the three year anniversary of the day her mother, Whitney Houston, died. In the days since Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the bathtub in her home on Jan. 31, she's been kept in a medically-induced coma at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital, and her condition has yet to improve. And although her family is said to be remaining hopeful, reports have made it seem that there's nothing left to be done.
(Update: Us Weekly reports that Bobbi Kristina will not be taken off of life support on Feb. 11. A "Houston family source" told the website that there is "no truth to it at all.")
According to Page Six, Bobbi Kristina's grandmother, Cissy Houston, brought up the idea that it could be a way to symbolically join Bobbi Kristina and Whitney Houston in death if they were to end her life support on the same day Houston died three years ago. In fact, Page Six notes that they may actually be planning to let her go at exactly midnight.
Monday night, a candlelight vigil was held in Bobbi Kristina's honor in Riverdale, Georgia, although Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown, and Cissy Houston did not attend.
Since Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina has been reportedly showing "minimal signs" of brain activity, which a source tells Page Six has led her family to the difficult decision to end her life support. Filmmaker and family friend Tyler Perry has allegedly already been asked to make arrangements for Bobbi Kristina's funeral, as he — as well as rappers Jermaine Dupri and Bow Wow — has been at her side in the hospital in the past few days.
It's incredibly sad to think that there's nothing left that can be done for Bobbi Kristina, but if it can bring the family comfort to let her go on the day of her mother's death, then that may be the best decision for them.
