On Tuesday morning, many of our hearts sank after Page Six exclusively reported the Houston and Brown families were planning to remove Bobbi Kristina Brown from life support on the anniversary of Whitney Houston‘s death.
The report spread like wildfire among various media outlets as many of us went through an array of emotions.
Bobby Brown‘s attorney, Christopher Brown, is slamming the story and has promised those who are reporting false information from their police and family sources will get dealt with.
We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended.
However, the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the Internet are egregious, false, and will be dealt with at an appropriate time.
In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, and the Daily Mail (UK) citing police sources, family sources, and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be ‘first’ has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.
The statement ended with a note from Bobby Brown saying, “We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for Bobbi Kristina. God is hearing our prayers.”
I would also like to note Roswell police have made it clear that a “criminal investigation” doesn’t necessarily mean there will be an arrest in the Bobbi Kristina incident.
