Bobby Brown has released his first statement to the media since Bobbi Kristina Brown was rushed to the hospital this past Saturday. His daughter was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Georgia. Brown’s attorney, Christopher Brown, released a statement on behalf of the singer. “Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.” The only information the attorney would confirm regarding Bobbi Kristina is that she was taken to a local hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

Bobbi Kristina’s mother, Whitney Houston, was found unconscious in a bathtub on February 11, 2012. Houston lost her life due to the incident and her death was ruled an accidental drowning. There are still conflicting reports regarding Bobbi Kristina’s condition, but CNN reported yesterday that she is in a medically induced coma. Roswell Police Department’s public information officer, Lisa Holland, reported that Brown is “alive and breathing.” Some stars have offered their love and support for Bobbi Kristina on social media. Missy Elliott tweeted, “Still Praying 4 Bobbi Kristina I see sum ppl making jokes. She lost her mom thats (sic) tougher than u may think 2 deal with.” Songwriter Diane Warren tweeted, “I hope Bobbi Kristina gets the help she needs Poor thing, almost 3 yrs to the day her mom passed and the same thing almost happened to her.”Bobbi Kristina’s cousin, YF Kennedy, spoke to E! News yesterday as he was heading to the hospital.

Kennedy told E! News that he didn’t know why Brown was unresponsive. “We don’t know what happened yet. We don’t know why she was unresponsive. Krissi doesn’t do drugs,” said Kennedy. He also added that Brown is pursuing a music career and that she’s been working out. Additionally, he addressed how hard this time of year is for Bobbi Kristina because of her mother’s unexpected death, “It’s a rough time lately with the anniversary. So this is a blow to the family. She’s still been going through the grieving stages but is trying to keep her spirits up.” Bobby Brown, Tyler Perry, and other family members are at the hospital by Bobbi Kristina’s side.
