Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family says she’s “in God’s hands now”

After months in the hospital, the late Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is being moved to hospice care.

The 22-year-old has been unconscious since she was found face down and unresponsive in a bath tub in her Atlanta home on Jan. 31. In February, she underwent surgery to replace her breathing tube with a tracheotomy tube, Fox News reports.

And in March, she was transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. There, she turned 22. Tragically, she was still unconscious.

In a statement Wednesday, her aunt Pat Houston said that her “condition has continued to deteriorate” despite medical care at several facilities, being put into a medically induced coma and being placed in a rehab facility. She added that Brown “has been moved to hospice care.”

The family said that they wanted to “thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”

The extent of Brown’s injuries were never made public, according to CNN. Though in April, Brown’s grandmother and gospel great Cissy Houston said that she suffered “global and irreversible brain damage.”

Brown’s father, singer-songwriter Bobby Brown, said in several instances that his daughter had awaken or she was progressing. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, has begged to see her, but the family has continually refused him, according to USA Today.

No one is sure what exactly happened to Brown. Police have been treating Brown’s case as a criminal investigation. Georgia police have not announced any findings or brought any charges against anyone.

Brown’s case eerily echoes that of her mother and legendary Grammy-winning pop vocalist Whitney Houston. Houston was found unresponsive in a hotel bathtub in 2012. She died shortly afterward. Her death was considered an accidental drowning with cocaine and heart disease listed as contributing factors.

Bobby Kristina is the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston. The two divorced after a drug-fueled marriage when their daughter was 14.

Before the accident Bobby Kristina was an aspiring singer known for singing duets with her mother before her death, according to Reuters. In 2003, she recorded a duet of Little Drummer Boy for a holiday album.
