Bobbi Kristina Brown’s anguished relatives are agreeing on something. Both families have agreed the time has come to take Bobbi Kristina off life support but want to wait until Wednesday (February 11) so she can pass on the same date as her mother, Whitney Houston, sources told The NY Post.
Bobbi’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, floated the idea of a Feb. 11 passing 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, Georgia, home on January 31. The Brown and Houston families have been arguing since Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital. However, 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.”
Tyler Perry, who’s a close family friend, brokered a peace treaty 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.”
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.”
As previously reported, authorities in Roswell are currently investigating the events that led up to Bobbi Kristina being found facedown in the bathtub of her home. The police probe is focusing on Nick Gordon, who has a history of domestic violence.. Authorities also are investigating drugs found in the home. When Bobbi Kristina was found, she had injuries to her face, including her mouth.
