Updated Feb. 10, 2015, 12:58 p.m. EST: According to US Weekly, a family source stated that Bobbi Kristina would not be taken off life support on the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death.
After Bobbi Kristina Brown’s two weeks in a medically induced coma, her family has agreed to wait until Wednesday to take her off life support so that she can die on the same date as her mother, Whitney Houston, according to the New York Post.
A family source told the Post it was Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, who came up with the idea, and even though the families of Houston and Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, have disagreed on several issues, they agreed on the Feb. 11 date, according to the newspaper. The source says both families realize that there’s nothing else they can do for Bobbi Kristina.
“This is the only thing they can agree on—that she’s gone [brain-dead], and there’s nothing more [that] can be done for her,” the source told the newspaper.
The source also told the Post that Tyler Perry took part in having both families make peace with each other, and is helping them make funeral arrangements.
“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.
Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in a bathtub Jan. 30 by a friend and the man Bobbi Kristina called her husband, Nick Gordon. The Brown and Houston families have been keeping vigil at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
Last week Bobby Brown, through his attorney, reported that Gordon and his daughter never officially married. Also, police are now investigating suspected foul play. CNN reported Monday that bruises were found on Bobbi Kristina’s face and mouth, and cops are looking into the possibility that a domestic dispute occurred before she was found unconscious.
As the three-year anniversary of Houston’s death approaches, it’s sad to know that the Houston and Brown families may have to grieve another loss.
