Bobbi Kristina Brown is now being cared for in a hospice, after her health has continued to “deteriorate”.

The 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston was put in a medically-induced coma, after being found unresponsive at her home in Atlanta, back in January, by her boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

Since then she’s been fighting for her life in hospital, but has now been moved to a “hospice”, as her condition has failed to improve.

Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Pat Houston, broke the news in a statement on Wednesday, thanking well-wishers for their “support and prayers”, but adding: “Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate.

“As of today, she has been moved into hospice care… she is in God’s hands now.”

Earlier this year, it was suggested that she could be getting better, with her aunt even claiming that she had been “opening her eyes”, while her father, Bobby Brown, said during a concert in Dallas that she was "awake".

However, his lawyer later clarified what he meant by his comments, insisting: “Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

In February, a candlelit vigil was held in Bobbi Kristina’s home state of Georgia, attended by hundreds of supporters of the young star, who held torches and sang hymns offered in her name.

Police in Atlanta later confirmed, shortly after she was first hospitalised, that they were launching a criminal investigation into what left Bobbi Kristina submerged for up to 18 minutes in a foot of water, at her home in Roswell, Georgia.
