Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, remains in a medically induced coma after moving to an Atlanta rehab facility earlier this week. According to sources, the “reality” of the situation is “sinking in” for the family.
Bobbi Kristina, 22, was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home on Jan. 31. Hospitalized at Emory University Hospital, the aspiring singer was placed in a medically induced coma due to swelling of the brain. In mid-February Bobbi Kristina suffered a seizure as doctors tried unsuccessfully to wean her off of the coma-inducing medication. She’s currently using a breathing tube with no change in her condition.
Now almost two months since her hospitalization, Bobbi Kristina is reportedly at an undisclosed medical rehab facility in Georgia. According to TMZ, the facility is for “long-term care.” And while Bobby Brown has remained optimistic about his daughter’s recovery, sources reveal to People magazine that the situation “hasn’t gotten any easier for him.”
“It has gotten harder,” the insider dished. “He really thought she’d be better by now, that there would be some change. There hasn’t been any sign of improvement since this happened.”
Bobbi Kristina’s family has remained at her side throughout the entire ordeal, but the source added that “reality is really sinking in.” The stress of the situation has led to reports of feuding between the Brown’s and Houston’s. Earlier this month, Bobby Brown’s sister, Leolah Brown, claimed that Whitney Houston’s sister, Pat Houston, was responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s condition. Others claim that Pat Houston is fighting with Bobby Brown over whether or not to remove Bobbi Kristina from life support. However, another insider is denying any trouble within the family.
“Bobby is the decision maker,” the insider explained to People. “Pat has been by Bobbi Kristina’s side this whole time and is not butting heads with Bobby. Pat will support any decision that Bobby makes about his daughter.”
While Bobbi Kristina continues to fight for her life, new reports of drug use are coming to light. Friend Stephen Stepho admitted to Radar Online that he helped Bobbi Kristina and her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, obtain narcotics. Gordon has allegedly entered rehab after admitting to addiction issues during an appearance on “The Doctor Phil Show.”
