Bobbi Kristina Brown Passes Away at Age 22

Following the tragic news of Whitney Houston’s death in 2012, her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown died July 26, 2015 at age 22. The heart-shattering news comes about three years after the passing of her mother, a pop diva, actress and model.

According to a statement released by the Houston Family rep, “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by 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.”

Bobbi’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her face down in a bathtub on January 31, 2015, a similar fate for her mother who was found submerged in a hotel bathtub in 2012 (ruled as an accidental drowning with heart disease and drug use). There has been no indication that drugs played a role in Bobbi’s death, however, but her cause of death is still under investigation. According to various sources, Bobbi did engage in substance abuse leading up to the January incident. After nearly six months of hospitlization under an induced coma, she died in hospice care.

The Life of Bobbi Kristina Brown????????

Bobbi Kristina Brown was born March 4, 1993 to Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. Her childhood was immediately absorbed in media surrounding her parents’ substance abuse and domestic violence issues. Because of her parents’ fame, Bobbi remained in the spotlight for the entirety of her life, from the moment her mother accepted an American Music Award in 1994 while holding little Bobbi on stage to the moment her parents divorced.

When news broke of Whitney Houston’s death, Bobbi was hospitalized due to what people described as her being “overwhelmed.” Bobbi became the sole beneficiary of her mother’s estate and all personal effects. In late 2012, Bobbi announced her engagement to Nick Gordon, claiming their marriage in early 2014. Her father’s lawyer later annonced that the marriage was false, and that Bobbi had never been married to Gordon.

Bobbi has been the main focus of many tabloids and gosspi magazines throughout her teenage years, from stories of reported drug abuse, weight loss, and family relationships. You can view her timeline with everything you need to know about Bobbi Kristina Brown.
