As Bobbi Kristina Brown lingers near death in hospice care, speculation is mounting that Bobbi Kristina is already dead and her family held a secret funeral service for her.
The death rumors started after a hearse was spotted outside Bobbi Kristina’s hospice facility on July 16. Adding to the speculation are multiple reports confirming Bobbi Kristina’s aunt and co-legal guardian, Pat Houston, cleaned out her townhouse.
A neighbor said Pat and her husband, Gary Houston, brought a moving van and emptied out the townhouse Bobbi Kristina had lived in boyfriend Nick Gordon before her hospitalization in January.
“The Houstons brought moving vans and filled up an entire dumpster with trash,” a neighbor told People July 23. “I was concerned about her little dogs, so I went over to inquire. The Houstons assured me they were being loved and well taken care of. The townhouse was cleaned out because no one was living there.”
Bobbi Kristina has been unconscious since Jan. 31, when she was found face down in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia, townhouse.
Brown, 22, was moved to hospice care in June after doctors determined she suffered irreversible brain damage and nothing more could be done to help her medically.
Bobbi Kristina Will Be Buried Next To Mom
Insiders say Bobbi Kristina’s family has already chosen her headstone and grave site near mom Whitney Houston in New Jersey.
Because the graves around Whitney Houston are already occupied, source said Bobbi Kristina’s remains will likely be placed on top of Whitney’s coffin so mother and daughter can rest together in eternity.
While family friends, including Tyler Perry, insist Bobbi Kristina is still alive, rumors are flying that she is already dead, and her family has been covering up her death to prevent a media circus as they mourn. The emergence of a fake funeral video has added to the rumor mill.
Perry asked fans to pray for Bobbi Kristina and show respect toward her grieving family. “It’s heartbreaking to think that even in a time like this, this child is still not allowed any peace,” Tyler wrote on Facebook. “I assure you, the family will issue an official statement if something changes. Until then, can we just pray for Krissi, and the Houston and Brown families?”
Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was recently served with a $10 million lawsuit alleging he beat and robbed Bobbi Kristina during their relationship. Gordon is currently living in Florida with his mom.
Bobbi Kristina’s family claims Nick punched her in the throat and face, choked and threw her against the wall. Sources say Gordon knocked out Bobbi’s front tooth shortly before she was found face down in her bathtub in January. A criminal investigation is pending.
Update: Bobbi Kristina died July 26, the Houston family announced in a statement:
“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family. 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.”
