Update 03/04/2016: Official cause of death for Bobbi Kristina Brown has been determined. Bobbi’s death is very similar to her mother’s, Whitney Houston, passing – drowning and drug intoxication according to TMZ.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Death

The daughter of big time sensations Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown had a less-than-normal life as a result of her parents’ world-renowned fame. Tragically, nearly six months after having spent time on life support, Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away on Sunday, July 26 , 2015.

In January, after she was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Atlanta apartment by her boyfriend Nick Gordon, the 22-year-old was brought to North Fulton Hospital and then moved to Emory University Hospital.  She was put in a medically induced coma for several months, only to be taken off life support in April and transitioned to hospice care.  Police declared her condition was caused by drowning and continue to investigate her death as a criminal case.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” confirmed Kristen Foster, who is a spokesperson for the Houston 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.”


The Bobbi Kristina Brown incident remains an ongoing investigation by the Roswell Police Department.  In the wake of Bobbi Kristina’s death, results from the autopsy are expected to reveal more details, crucial to the investigation.  The expected length of time for the return of autopsy results was not provided by the medical examiner, but he estimated processing may take several weeks.  The autopsy is expected to be difficult since Bobbi Kristina has been unresponsive since January.  “Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging,” stated personnel from the medical examiner’s office.  “However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.”

Nick Gordon Hears About Death and Gets Served

Although Bobbi Kristina and Gordon never officially married, she would often refer to him as her husband.  Despite their close relationship, he was estranged from the Houston family due to the investigation of the incident.  According to US Magazine, Gordon was in Florida with his mother when he found out she died.  “Nick is devastated that Bobbi has passed,” a source told US.  Gordon is supposedly not allowed at the funeral.  US also reported that in July, Gordon was served papers for a lawsuit in Florida by Bedelia Hargrove over accusations involving Bobbi Kristina.  The accusations involved pulling the girl’s hair, taking money out of her bank account without her approval, and knocking her teeth out.  His lawyer suggested he not look at the papers since he was served on a Sunday, which is unlawful in Florida.

While Bobbi Kristina Brown was known as the daughter of a legacy, the late Whitney Houston, she wanted to work on her own singing and acting career in honor of her mother.  Bobbi Kristina appeared in reality TV shows “Being Bobby Brown” in 2005 and “The Houstons: On Our Own” after her mother’s death in 2012.  It wasn’t until 2012 that she guest-starred on Tyler Perry’s comedy series “For Better or Worse.” However, she was unable to live out her dreams when her life was tragically cut short.  Bobbi Kristina gained much attention on her social media accounts, posting well over 11,000 Tweets and getting 164,000 followers.  She will always be remembered as a daughter, family member, aspiring singer and actress.
