Eight days ago it was reported that Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive in a bathtub. She was rushed to a hospital, where she was placed in a medically induced coma and placed on life support.

On Thursday TMZ reported that Bobby Brown has been told that there is nothing more that doctors can do for his 21-year-old daughter and that he should withdraw her from life support.

According to the gossip site, Brown has refused to make the decision today, which is also his birthday, and wants to be given until after the weekend, in hopes that Bobbi Kristina will recover.

TMZ notes that Bobbi Kristina was initially taken to a hospital in Roswell, Ga., but was moved Tuesday to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, which is known for its highly touted neurological department. It is there that doctors have reportedly told Brown that the situation doesn't look hopeful. 

People magazine is also reporting that family members have come to the hospital in the last few days to say their goodbyes.

"Her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."
