Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston, remains hospitalized and on life support six days after she was found unconscious in her bathtub and her cousin, Jerod Brown, also known as YF Kennedy, says “doctors don’t see any hope for change” in her condition.
He made his comments in a Facebook post published on Thursday, in which he also called for fans to continue praying for the 21-year-old’s recovery.
“Hey y’all, a few of you all have been messaging me, commenting under photos about her condition…Though it seems the odds are against her, though doctors don’t see any hope for change, though we might want to play detective and find out how she got there, though it looks impossible for her to stand again STILL PRAY FOR BK #StillPrayForBK Campaign starts NOW!” he wrote.
Bobbi Kristina’s partner Nick Gordon’s friend found her face down in a filled tub in her Georgia home on Saturday, Jan. 31, almost three years after Houston was found in a similar manner in a Beverly Hills hotel room. The iconic pop star and The Bodyguard actress was pronounced dead on the scene, at age 48.
Gordon attempted to perform CPR on Bobbi Kristina before paramedics arrived and she was taken to a hospital. Her father and Houston’s ex-husband, singer Bobby Brown, and other loved ones rushed to her bedside following the incident.
She was put on a ventilator to help her breathe. Her family said in a statement days later that she “is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family.” She remains in a comatose state.
On Wednesday, YF Kennedy told E! News that Bobbi Kristina is “still fighting” and that doctors had said that she had been opening her eyes.
“She blinked her eyes, she did do that, family friend and rapper Waka Flocka Flame’s mother Debra Antney told Extra in an interview posted on Wednesday. “She’s not out of danger.”
“She’s a fighter. She’s going to come through,” she added. “She’s got that Brown blood in her. She’s got that Houston blood in her.”
On Thursday, a source told E! News that Bobbi Kristina is “not brain dead,” contrary to recent reports.
Also on Thursday, Bobby marked his 46th birthday with his wife Alicia Etheridge, who is pregnant with his sixth child, and other family members.
“I know it’s been a rough one uncle B, but as a family we will get through it,” YF Kennedy said on Facebook. “Happy Birthday uncle Bobby. #PrayForBK #StillPrayForBK.”
He also posted an update early on Friday.
“6:33 am #StillPrayForBK,” he wrote.
