Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, died on Sunday July 26 at the age of 22 in a palliative care center in Atlanta. In a statement, her family said she was “asleep in peace, in the hands of God.”
Saturday, January 30 hospitalized after being found unconscious in a bathtub, the girl could not be revived there. Placed in an artificial coma by doctors, Bobbi Kristina has been brought back to life despite the efforts of neurosurgeons of Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Aged only 22, the young woman had already seen it all: drugs, family dramas, professional delusions and the controversy surrounding her relationship with Nick Gordon, her half-brother, raised with her by her mother, Whitney.
A tragic fate between drugs and alcohol
Born on March 4 in Livingston, New Jersey in 1993, she was the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. High gleams between aggressive American tabloids and dark through its famous and tortured parents, the young Bobbi Kristina has not had the sweetest life possible. She was 14 when her parents divorced in 2007 after revelations about mother’s drug use and constant infidelities of her father. This divorce pushed to the front of the stage as the separation of her parents was sordid.
Alternating stays with her father and grandmother, when her mother was in rehab, small Bobbi Kristina spent her childhood tossed into the spotlight. Sometimes her mother, Whitney, took her on tour with her. Between tours, the immediate family is trying to offer her a semblance of normal life she will never have. In 2011, the National Enquirer published a photo of the girl with the white powder on the face. Bobbi Kristina later explained that it was a magazine sold mounting by one of her ex.
The young woman has really slipped over the last three years. She seemed to fall into the same through her mother: drugs, alcohol, unbridled nights. Heir to a fortune estimated at $ 20 million at the death of her mother, Bobbi Kristina was placed partly under the tutelage of her grandmother, until her 21 years. Inefficient guardianship if one believes the relatives of the girl, who had never hidden her dangerous behavior and addiction. During the episodes of the reality show Houston, “On Our Own”, broadcast on the Lifetime channel and devoted to her family after the death of Whitney, Bobbi Kristina was seen sometimes dive into alcohol. She also often appeared drunk on the screen. This reality show was supposed to start her musical career. A failure.
The shadow of her mother, Whitney
Bobbi Kristina knew she looked like her mother terribly. At Halloween, she even confided to a relative that she knew how her mother had died and had learned a lot from past mistakes. When the death of her mother is pronounced, it is in the hotel lobby, and collapses in the hours following the announcement. Emergency taken to Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, she is being treated for stress and anxiety. It will emerge in a few days later, for the funeral of her mother. A ceremony during which witnesses have drunk and drugged view. Devastated by the death of her mother, the young woman faced the same demons that her parents. The difference is that, unlike her parents, she had to get used to living under media pressure.
In January 2014, she reveals her engagement to Nick Gordon, her half-brother, despite the disapproval of her grandmother, Cissy Houston. Love, the couple crossed the tragedy was the death of Whitney Houston together: for better and for worse. Expelled several times from her apartment to night noise recent months, the couple gave entertainments to the end of the night, where alcohol and drugs were the ingredients for a successful evening, they said.
This Saturday 30 January, just days before the anniversary of the death of her mother, the fate of Bobbi Kristina has changed. A dramatic outcome that is reminiscent of the circumstances of the death of her mother, Whitney Houston, who died February 11, 2012. The singer was found lifeless in the bathtub of the hotel room in Los Angeles, just a few days the Grammy Awards. The autopsy concluded she had drowned accidentally, especially after taking cocaine and then she suffered from heart disease.
