Over the weekend, we brought you traumatic news about Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of famed singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston. Bobbi Kris was found unresponsive, in a bathtub, inside her Roswell, GA home with multiple outlets reports that she was into a medically induced coma due to brain swelling and placed on a ventilator to help regulate her breathing.
Now, Bobby Brown (who flew to her bedside alongside family friend Tyler Perry) is speaking out on behalf of the family.
“Privacy is requested in this matter,” he said in a statement. “Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”
Since Bobby’s arrival, Bobbi Kris has been moved to a new facility in Atlanta, Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen, the legal counsel for Mr. Brown, confirmed.
“The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia is accurate. No additional information will be forthcoming,” read the statement.
Discussing Bobby’s current state of being, a family source told PEOPLE, “This is his worst nightmare. Losing Whitney [Houston] was hard, but this is a million times worse, and to lose her in the same way would devastate him.”
We will keep you posted as new information about Bobbi Kris becomes available.
