Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the pop stars Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, who set off a media frenzy after she was found unconscious in a bathtub on January this year, died yesterday aged 22.
Her death was confirmed by a statement from the Houston family representatives.
Ms. Brown, who grew up in the shadow of her parents’ fame and tumultuous relationship and was the sole heir to her mother’s estate, was found in her townhouse in a suburb of Atlanta on back in January, and placed into a medically induced coma. The circumstances were reminiscent of those surrounding her mother’s death; Ms. Houston, who was found submerged in a hotel bathtub in the year 2012.
Ms. Houston was one of the greatest pop stars of the 1980s and ’90s but her career deteriorated as she and husband at that time, Mr. Brown struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, and their marriage ended in 2007.
Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown was born on March 4, 1993, in Livingston, N.J., and attended Edison High School in Edison Township. Conflicting news reports and family statements about Ms. Brown’s condition swirled for months. She was placed into hospice care on June 24.
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” her family said in a statement confirming her death on Sunday.
