Over the weekend, Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was rushed to an Atlanta hospital after being found face down in her bathtub in her home. Now it is being reported that the 21-year-old is brain dead.
According to reports, she has "lost oxygen to her brain for too long."
While details are slowing emerging, her father, Bobby Brown, has issued a statement asking that the public respect their privacy during this tough time.
“Privacy is requested in this matter," the 45-year-old singer said in a statement to E! News. "Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”
Though she is breathing with the help of a ventilator, it has been confirmed that Bobbi Kristina is not in a medically induced coma, which was previously reported.
A family source told People that her father is "inconsolable."
"This is his worst nightmare. Losing Whitney [Houston] was hard, but this is a million times worse, and to lose her in the same way would devastate him."
The source also revealed that Bobbi Kristina's recovery is possible but it would be a miracle if it happened.
