The only child of the late singer Whitney Houston has not been taken off life support or declared brain dead, a family source has said, five days after Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face down in a bathtub at her Georgia home.
The source said media reports that Brown, Houston’s daughter with singer Bobby Brown, had no brain activity were incorrect.
Bobbi Kristina’s cousin, Jerod Brown, said on social media that doctors were not optimistic about the 21-year-old aspiring singer’s chances.
Few details about Bobbi Kristina’s condition have been released. Her family has said she is fighting for her life after being rushed to a hospital in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell last Saturday. Her partner and a friend found her unresponsive in the tub and performed CPR until help arrived, police said.
Houston, a six-time Grammy Award winner and actress who battled substance abuse, drowned in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills in 2012.
Authorities said cocaine use and heart disease contributed to her death at the age of 48.
Her daughter is now receiving treatment at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, according to media reports.
