If the news that Bobby Brown was attempting to talk his ailing daughter, Bobbi Kristina, health into existence wasn’t heartbreaking enough, the 21-year-old’s grandmother is offering up new information that paints the bleak outlook we’ve grown accustomed to hearing when discussing this three-month long ordeal.
E! News obtained a statement from the Cissy Houston–the mother of the late Whitney Houston–that revealed Bobbi Kristina’s condition is worst than what was initially reported.
“I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive,” she said. “Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me,” Cissy continued. “We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers.”
On April 18, Bobby Brown excited a Texas crowd during his performance when he relayed to them that his daughter “was awake.” She has been in a coma since January 31 when her boyfriend Nick Gordon found her unresponsive and facedown in a bathtub in their condo.
The family attorney also released a statement that read: “Bobbi Kristina’s condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement. Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come.”
