It’s been 10 days since Whitney’s only child was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia home. She’s currently being treated in the neuro intensive care unit at Emory University Hospital while Roswell police investigate the circumstances surrounding the tragic incident.
According to Page Six, Cissy Houston suggested removing Bobbi Kris from life support on February 11 and the Brown family reportedly agreed to let her go on the same day as her mother.
Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy Houston floated the idea of a Feb. 11 death over the weekend during discussions with the Brown family at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
The Browns gave their blessing to pull the plug at the stroke of midnight to align the date with the 2012 passing of the legendary singer at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The move is a symbolic way to keep the mother and daughter together for eternity, according to a Brown family source.
Bobbi Kristina, 21, the only child of Houston and singer Bobby Brown, has been in a medically induced coma since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Roswell, Ga., home Jan. 31.
The Brown and Houston families have been bickering since Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital, but they have now come to grips with the fact that she cannot be saved, the source said.
“This is the only thing they can agree on — that she’s gone [brain-dead], and there’s nothing more than can be done for her,” the source said.
The agonizing choice to finally pull the plug on the young woman was made by both sides, the source said.
Filmmaker Tyler Perry, who was close to Whitney, played a key role in brokering an uneasy peace between the families, the source added.
He has already been tabbed to make all the funeral arrangements, the source said.
“You wouldn’t think of him as being someone who’d be a peacemaker, but he’s someone both sides really respect,” the Brown source said.
Perry also has been joined in Bobbi Kristina’s room at Emory University Hospital by record producer Jermaine Dupri and rapper Bow Wow, who are friends with both families and who have helped him calm things down, the source said.
“They’re respected, and both sides know they don’t want to embarrass themselves in front of them,” the source said of the men.
The entire situation is extremely sad. Please continue to pray.
