Bobbi Kristina, 21, and daughter of the legendary singer Whitney Houston, was found submerged and unresponsive faced down in her bathtub at her Atlanta home the morning of January 31st, 2014.

According to Daily Mail, she was rushed to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia but has been transferred to Emory University Hospital where she remains in a coma. According to reports, she could have been submerged in water for as long as 15 minutes before she was found.

Currently on life support, there has been little to no improvement in her condition. Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, hesitates from taking her off life support due to his belief in miracles. The family is deeply religious and has utmost faith that God will intervene with Bobbi Kristina’s current state, according to TMZ. There is speculation about her life support being switched off according to a police source, but Brown has denied the fact of them giving up on their daughter.

Daily Mail reported Brown said, “If we issued a statement every time the media published a false report regarding this matter, that’s all we would be doing 24 hours a day.

More of Kristina’s family are coming to visit her. Police have begun an investigation of suspected “foul play”. Nick Gordon, Kristina’s husband, and Max Lomas, Gordon’s friend, are currently talking to police since they found and reported Bobbi Kristina’s condition. Both Lomas and Gordon have acquired attorneys, but Lomas is not suspected to have had any hand in the injury of Kristina.
The investigation is targeted at Nick Gordon who was taken in and raised by Whitney Houston when he was only 12 years old.

The romantic relationship between Kristina and Gordon was subject to much scrutiny from not only the public but their family as well. There is also a restraining order against Gordon by Kristina’s aunt, who is also the executor of Kristina’s trust fund. Gordon was said to have threatened the aunt to increase Kristina’s allowance according to Yahoo News. Gordon and Kristina’s marriage is speculated to be illegitimate which goes against what the couple told sources at E! News.

The tragedy mirrors the death of Bobbi Kristina’s mother three years ago on February 11, 2012. According to CNN, Houston was also found in her bathtub and her death was ruled an “accidental drowning” by the coroner with contributing factors such as heart disease and cocaine. Bobbi Kristina’s family asks for prayers and privacy as they deal with this hard time.
