Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of actor and singer Bobby Brown and the late singer Whitney Houston, has died at the age of 22.
“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 Houston family said in a statement.
Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub six months ago in her Roswell, Georgia, home by a friend and her boyfriend, Nick Gordon. She was rushed to a nearby hospital and was placed into a medically induced coma by doctors for her own safety. Brown remained unconscious, her condition in flux, until she was taken off medication and moved into hospice care.
She spent her last few weeks in the hospice and passed away peacefully, according to her family.
As the news began to spread, celebrities and other prominent personalities in the music industry took to Twitter to express their grief and condolences for the Brown family over their tragic loss.
