Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of tragic pop star Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, died Sunday at a hospice center in Georgia, her family said.
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the Houston family said in a statement.
It has been six months since the 22-year-old Brown was mysteriously found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home.
Over that half-year, she has been cared for at four facilities, including Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital, where she was put in an induced coma.
She passed away while surrounded by her family at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Ga.
Bobbi Kristina grew up in the spotlight and wanted to walk in her mother’s footsteps. But other than an appearance on a Tyler Perry sitcom, she was relegated to the sidelines.
She was only 18 years old when her superstar mother met a fate that would foreshadow her own, dying in a bathtub in her Beverly Hilton Hotel suite in February 2012 at the age of 48. Officials blamed Houston’s death on cocaine and drug-related heart disease.
“She wasn’t only a mother,” Bobbi Kristina later told Oprah Winfrey. “She was a best friend.”
After her mother’s death, Bobbi Kristina inherited an estate estimated to be worth nearly $115 million, but was reportedly despondent.
Just eight months later, she was engaged to her childhood friend Nick Gordon, who went into rehab for two months earlier this year.
