Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, passed away on (Sunday) July 26th. The 22-year old was being treated at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Georgia. “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,” the Houston family statement read. Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub back in January, and she had been in a medically induced coma for nearly five months. In June, Brown was moved to a hospice facility. Her legendary mother, Whitney Houston, was also found unconscious in a bathtub in 2012. Houston’s death was ruled an accidental drowning.
