Apparently Bobby Brown was an emotional mess Saturday when he belted out to a concert crowd that daughter Bobbi Kristina was awake. In a statement to the New York Daily News, both Brown’s wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, and his attorney, Christopher Brown, said that Bobbi Kristina has improved but is still on life support.
“He is encouraged by the steps that Bobbi Kristina has made since her hospitalization on Jan. 31, 2015. She has made it out of ICU, opened her eyes, and started a rehabilitation that will be long and hard,” Etheredge-Brown said in the statement to the Daily News.
“We will hold on to all the blessings God gives us to help her at this time, and we look forward to her having a relationship with her unborn sister as our family grows in love and faith,” she said. “I just wish my husband could deal with this most painful and difficult time with people surrounding him who fully support and pray for Bobbi Kristina’s recovery and only her recovery. Life is the most precious thing that we all have.”
Brown’s attorney also said that Bobbi Kristina is making strides. “Bobbi Kristina’s condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement,” Christopher Brown (no relation) told the Daily News.
“Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life,” he said. “However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process, and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."
Although the Browns and their attorney have spoken positively about Bobbi Kristina’s condition, the family of Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s mother, is being more cautious.
An unnamed Houston-family source told TMZ that Bobbi Kristina’s condition remains the same, saying that she’s still in a coma and has made only slight eye movements. “She’s in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility,” the source told TMZ.
Bobbi Kristina has been in a coma since Jan. 31, when she was found unconscious in a bathtub.
