The family of Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, say they are moving her to a terminal care facility, as she remains in a months-long coma.
The 22-year-old was found face down and unresponsive in her bathtub in her Atlanta, Georgia home on January 31. She was revived by emergency crews but lost significant brain function.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, (her) condition has continued to deteriorate,” Brown’s aunt, Pat Houston, said in a statement on Wednesday.
“As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
Brown’s accident drew eerie parallels with the death of her mother, who was found face down in a bathtub in a Los Angeles hotel on February 11, 2012, on the eve of the Grammy Awards.
A final coroner’s report said Houston may have overdosed on drugs and alcohol before drowning.
Brown is also the daughter of singer Bobby Brown. He, along with Pat Houston, were appointed co-guardians of Brown last month.
Pat Houston, the musical icon’s sister-in-law and manager, was appointed administrator of the trust fund Whitney Houston set up for her daughter.
A lawsuit filed on Wednesday against Brown’s partner, Nick Gordon, accused him of being physically and emotionally abusive towards Brown, misrepresenting the nature of their relationship and taking money from her without authorisation.
Bedilia Hargrove, a court-appointed conservator for Brown, sued Gordon in Fulton County Superior Court and is seeking at least $US10 million ($A12.99 million) in damages.
Gordon is accused of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion.
The complaint says after Brown was in a medically-induced coma, Gordon stole more than $US11,000 from her bank account.
Calls to Gordon’s lawyer weren’t returned.
