Bobbi—’At Peace’ At 22


Bobbi Kristina Brown, age 22, died on July 25.

She was the only child of the pop stars Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, who set off a media  frenzy after she was found unconscious in a bathtub on Jan. 31.

 Her death was confirmed by a statement from the Houston family provided by their representatives. She passed away outside Atlanta in the hospice care facility where she’s been since June 24 when her family decided to take her off all meds. According to news reports, a specialist told the family there  was no chance of recovery.

“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” her family said in a statement confirming her death.

She was the sole heir to Ms. Houston’s estate, widely reported to be about $20 million, which was put into a trust to be paid out in installments to Ms. Brown. People magazine reported in March that Ms. Brown’s uncle and aunt, Gary and Pat Houston, were in charge of managing the trust.

Survivors include her father; her grandmother, the singer Cissy Houston; and her uncle and aunt.

According to TMZ, “The D.A. has been gearing up for a murder case, and her boyfriend Nick Gordon would be their first person of interest. Police said there were bruises on Bobbi Kristina’s face and body after Gordon and a friend, Max Lomas, found her in the tub.”
