By, Crystal S. Kauffman, Staff Writer


Sunday- July 26th, 2015- According to AFP, Bobbi Kristina Brown died at age 22, after being found unconscious in her bathtub at her Roswell, GA. Home. She was found submerged face down in her bath tub on January 21st, 2015, by Nick Gordon and Max Lomas. No one is sure how long she was submerged in the water, but she was placed in a medical coma soon after being placed in the hospital. She never regained consciousness after six months, so recently the Brown and Houston families agreed to place her in a hospice care faculty.

The families put their differences aside and remained by her side, until she took her last breath on Sunday. She is the only child of powerhouse singer Whitney Houston and pop singer Bobby Brown, who raised her beneath their loving wings. According to AFP, celebrities stopped by the funeral, while friends and family came to pay their respects to this beloved young woman. However, even at the funeral these two families cannot stop feuding, so I boxing gloves are going to be tightened when it comes to Bobbi Kristina’s estate.

Nick Gordon is three years older than Bobbi Kristina, but Whitney Houston raised him just like he was her own child. According to USA Today, Nick and Bobbi Kristina had a fight and later that morning she found in bathtub with face swollen and a missing tooth. Nick claimed they were married, but they were never legally married and the allegations of him abusing Bobby Kristina have infuriated the family. The family had an injunction placed against him, so he could not visit Bobbi Kristina and they stopped his access to her money.

The police want to know how one of her teeth got knocked out and why she had bruises and a swollen face. According to USA Today, the District Attorney in Fulton County is looking into the case from an investigative standpoint and trying to figure out why this young lady lost her life at such as young age. However, Nick is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from Bobbi Kristina’s estate on the same day that she was found unresponsive in the bathtub. However, Bobbi Kristina is now at peace and she has been reunited with her mother Whitney Houston.

Songstress Whitney Houston was also found dead in a bathtub of an overdose about three years ago, but Bobbi Kristina didn’t have drugs in her system. Many people have said that the circumstances between the two deaths are strangely frightening.However, according to Black Media Scoop, the family is asking for privacy and prayers while they say a final good-bye to their loved one. Bobby Brown stayed by his daughter’s side and he is utterly devastated by losing his little girl.

Hopefully, each family member can find peace amongst themselves in the wake of the beautiful young woman’s tragic death. According to ABC, Bobbi Kristina was laid to rest next to her mother in Westfield, New Jersey. At this time, the investigation into her death is still open, so hopefully there will be some tough questions answered as the case moves forward. For now, the family just wants to mourn privately, while cherishing every moment they spent with Bobbi Kristina.
