Bobby Brown is not planning to take daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown off life support anytime soon. Sources said Brown will “never, ever” turn off Bobbi Kristina’s life support as long as she’s still breathing.
“Let me tell you this now: Don’t believe any reports that Bobby is going to take her off life support,” a Brown family source told People May 28. “He’s never going to do that. I don’t think he’ll ever go there. If there’s a 2% chance, a 1% chance, a 0.1% chance, he will keep hope alive.”
The Brown family was responding to reports that Brown, Cissy Houston and her daughter-in-law Pat Houston were planning to turn off Bobbi Kristina’s life support soon because her health has not improved at all.
But the Houstons and Browns both slammed the reports, insisting they won’t let Bobbi Kristina die. “It’s background noise,” said an insider. “Bobby hears these reports, and it’s annoying to him. He hates that people are just waiting for his daughter to die.”
The speculation has been snowballing ever since Cissy Houston, the mother of Whitney Houston and grandmother of Bobbi Kristina, had revealed that Bobbi’s condition has remained unchanged since she first went into a coma on Jan. 31.
Bobbi Kristina Has Irreversible Brain Damage: Will Never Recover
Bobbi Kristina has suffered irreversible brain damage and will never fully recover, said Houston. “She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all,” said Cissy, 81.
Cissy is praying for a miracle, but said she’ll be at peace if Bobbi Kristina dies. “She’s not gone yet, but whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her,” said Houston. “It’s his territory, and I understand it.”
Cissy gave the dire health update shortly after her daughter-in-law, Pat Houston, and former son-in-law, Bobby Brown, were named co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina by a Georgia judge. Pat, the wife of Cissy’s son Gary Houston, and Bobby Brown, the father of Bobbi Kristina, are jointly responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s medical care and needs.
Until the ruling, Bobby Brown was solely in charge of making medical decisions regarding his daughter.
When Whitney Houston died in 2012, she left her $20 million estate to Bobbi Kristina, her only child. Whitney’s will stipulated that if Bobbi Kristina died, the estate would pass to her mom, Cissy, her brother Gary Houston and his wife, Pat. Singer Bobby Brown, who divorced Whitney Houston in 2007, gets nothing from Bobbi Kristina’s estate.
Bobbi Kristina, 22, is out of her medically induced coma but has irreversible brain damage and is unresponsive. While Bobbi may be able to live a long life despite the extensive brain damage, experts say a full recovery is impossible.
Bobbi Kristina remains on life support, which includes a ventilator and feeding tube. Brown was found unconscious and face-down by her friend Max Lomas in the bathtub of her Georgia home on Jan. 31, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported. Lomas called 911 while Nick administered CPR.
In February, doctors tried to take Bobbi Kristina off the drugs that had kept her in a medically induced coma but quickly aborted the plan after she started having violent seizures.
Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was recently released from drug and alcohol rehab after admitting he had tried to commit suicide twice since her hospitalization. An emotional Gordon vowed to kill himself if Bobbi Kristina dies.
