Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has died. She was 22. According to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina passed away at the hospice care facility that she’s been staying at since June 24.
The Houston family announced the news on Sunday afternoon. “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, surrounded by her family,” the statement says. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
At the beginning of 2015, Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a filled bathtub by her longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon, and friend Max Lomas, who attempted to revive her, according to ABC News. Once the paramedics arrived, they performed CPR and rushed her to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell.
Bobbi Kristina was then kept on life support following her near-drowning. Back in March, she was moved to a long-term care facility in the Atlanta area. In June, she was then transferred to the hospice as her “condition continued to deteriorate,” according to a statement made on behalf of the Houston Family.
Bobbi Kristina’s death comes a little more than three years after the death of her mother, Whitney Houston, who was also discovered unconscious in her bathtub. An investigation determined the singer passed away from drowning, and a toxicology report found she had cocaine and other medication in her system.
A month after Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina spoke with Oprah Winfrey about the loss of her mother, saying, “It comes in waves. One minute I could be laughing and happy, but then it will come over me. It’s my mom. I start crying, but then I hear her again, saying, “come on, keep moving.”
