Brown Family Disputes Reports Of Ending Bobbi Kristina Life Support
February 10, 2015 at 11:54 AM (PT)
The imminent fate of BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN continues to be a fountain of controversy as the BOBBY BROWN's lawyer denied multiple media reports that family sources said they were going to pull the plug on BROWN, who has been in a medically-induced coma since her body was discovered in a bathtub (NET NEWS, 2/2), tomorrow, the third anniversary of the passing of her mother, WHITNEY HOUSTON. Furthermore, the family released an official statement alleging "false reporting of TMZ, THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER, THE ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION and the DAILY MAIL (U.K.)."
Reportedly, BROWN family sources told TMZ that "BOBBY has finally made the decision, realizing there is no hope for his 21-year-old daughter to recover. A source connected with HOUSTON's family told TMZ on SUNDAY ... CISSY HOUSTON, WHITNEY's mom, also wanted life support pulled on the anniversary to 'bond mother and daughter for eternity.'" Strangely, TMZ also noted that it could not confirm the latter information, while noting that the NY POST ran it as well. It has since updated the story with BROWN's attorney denial of the family pulling the 21-year-old off life support.
BILLBOARD.COM reprinted the BROWN statement:
"We support the candlelight vigil for BOBBI KRISTINA. The BROWN family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended." Said CHRISTOPHER BROWN of BROWN & ROSEN LLC, legal counsel for BOBBY BROWN. 'However the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the Internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time. In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER, THE ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION and the DAILY MAIL (U.K.) citing, police sources, family sources and BOBBY BROWN himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be "first" has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.'
"'We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for BOBBI KRISTINA. God is hearing our prayers.' said BOBBY BROWN.'
