Bobbi Kristina Brown?s fight to stay alive finally ended after five months of being in a coma since January this year. According to a statement from family members, the 22-year old, only daughter of superstars Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston died Sunday in a hospice she was transferred to last month.
“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” the statement said. “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.”
Brown was found unconscious in a tub early this year by Bobbi Kristina?s supposed husband and a male companion. Her singer mother also died in a tub after accidentally overdosing in 2012.
