Last Sunday in a shocking turn of events daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta town home. The events that just occurred sound oddly familiar considering her mother was found almost three years ago to the day, in the same manner before she passed away. Each day comes with new information regarding the condition of Bobbi Kristina, while new details about her marriage take the spotlight. At this point we know that she was moved to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Although we do not know the cause which led Bobbi Kristina to be face-down in a bathtub, we do know a few details…
The bathtub was filled with water, it is unclear how much at this point. She was found unresponsive and unconscious, immediately after she was rushed to the hospital and was put in a medical induced coma. It is still uncertain how long she was under the water before she was found – with that being said, irreversible brain damage occurs about 2-minutes after the brain is deprived of oxygen. This process can be even more damaging if drugs are involved. Drugs and alcohol are suspected to be a part of the cause, since doctors have not released any information we can only speculate.
As of late doctors have been conducting tests on her brain three times a day, in order to see any signs of improvement and brain function. According to TMZ she has been moving her eyes, and the swelling in her brain has gone down almost four times since they found her initial check-in on Saturday. While this is great news, Bobbi Kristina has a long way to go, but this is a step in the right direction. The family released a statement updating the public on how she’s doing:
“Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time.” (Obtained from TMZ)
While she continues to fight for her life, we find out that her estranged marriage to her “brother” Nick Gordon, did not actually happen. Whitney took in Gordon when he was younger, while she did not adopt him legally, he was treated much like a son. You can see why this turned heads when Bobbi Kristina took to Facebook to let the world know she was indeed engaged to Gordon, despite attempts to keep the relationship under wraps.
Where is he in all of this commotion? I do not know, but he is NOT inside the hospital room with his “wife”. Sources report that Gordon was kicked out of hospital room and barred after a heated exchange with Bobby Brown, which Tyler Perry (Brown’s close friend) broke up. Whatever is going on they need to get a load on it, I hope that in all of this Bobbi Kristina continues to improve and remains the main focus as she fights for her life. As more details from this story become public, I will keep you updated!
