Breaking: Bobbi Kristina Brown Dead at 22…

The following is a breaking story, please check back for ongoing updates.  Last updated: 8:30 pm PT.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the sole child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has now been pronounced dead at the age of 22.  The death was confirmed by an official statement from the Houston family, issued on Sunday.  On January 31st of this year, Bobbi Kristina entered a medically-induced coma after being found unconscious in her bathtub.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

Statement from the Houston family.

The situation bears an eerie resemblance to the death of Bobbi Kristina’s mom, Whitney, who died after a drug-induced drowning in a bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2012.  Whitney’s death, which happened immediately prior to the the Grammy Awards that year, spiked viewing for the awards show and sparked a resurgence in Whitney’s recording sales and overall viewing.  Tragically, Whitney essentially killed herself through self-destructive drug abuse, though the cause of death for Bobbi remains unclear months after the incident.

Bobbi, a celebrity kid whose brief life included reality show stints, was the sole heir to the Whitney Houston estate.  That includes monstrous recording, licensing, and related royalties.  It remains unclear if a will existed; most likely, it didn’t, and Bobbi reportedly suffered massive brain damage and unconsciousness following the January 31st incident.

    You are vile and stupid times ten.

    Google “Bobbi Kristina car accident”.

    Her bathtub tragedy was 2 days after declining treatment after a car accident. Her eventual demise was a little more medically complicated than “a junkie like her Mom.”

    Pig. You’re just a pig.

    I sure hope that she didn’t do anything to promote music piracy or Paul will skewer her corpse.

      If you’re referring to Josh Greenberg, then this isn’t the right comment thread. As it relates to Bobbi, this is mainly just sad. I’m not sure this young woman really had an opportunity to evolve into her adult life, she was 22.

        You are one messed up individual, Paul. You’ve got compassion for someone that you didn’t know, and had done nothing other than be born to someone with talent (nothing against Bobbi Kristina as she was young), but you vilify someone who started a company, employed people and caused an industry to think (as opposed to remain still and stupid in a time a change). What a piece of work, you are. Unsubscribe.

          I disagree with that characterization entirely, and frankly, disagree with the presumption that I should only assumed some glossed-over, angelic and only partially-accurate account of Mr. Greenberg’s legacy. I won’t do it.

            Your response has only confirmed my comment. Game over, Paul, game over.

          “but you vilify someone who started a company, employed people and caused an industry to think “
          Yeah, well, the Mafia also starts companies, employs people, and causes people to think ( mainly about how to put them in jail ).

    “Whitney House?” Use a spellchecker, or at least re-read your articles before posting them.
