Bobbi Kristina Brown’s life-support has been turned off, DailyMail.com has learned.
The 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston was found face down in a bath-tub at the Roswell, Georgia townhouse she shared with partner Nick Gordon on Saturday.
Her father Bobby Brown, whose birthday is today, is at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta hospital with friends and relatives.
‘The plug on Bobbi Kristina has been pulled,’ a police source with knowledge of her medical condition told DailyMail.com.
It is possible for a patient to survive despite artificial assistance being withdrawn.
She was moved to the Atlanta hospital from North Fulton Hospital on Monday. She had been placed in a medically-induced coma and was reported to be breathing with the help of a ventilator.
During tests for brain activity, she briefly opened her eyes and doctors found ‘minimal’ improvement in her brain function.
Houston died in a bathtub from an ‘accidental’ drug overdose almost exactly three years ago, in tragically similar circumstances.
Authorities found a dozen prescription drug bottles in her Beverly Hills Hotel suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors, but concluded that she accidentally drowned.
A doctor told the family that nothing more could be done for her, People magazine reported.
‘Everyone is coming to the hospital to say goodbye,’ a family member told the magazine.
‘Bobby has been crying nonstop since yesterday,’ the source added. ‘We are grieving.’
The devastating news comes as a friend of Bobbi Kristina’s claimed he was the one who called 911 after finding her in the bathtub on Saturday – not her ‘husband’ Nick Gordon.
Max Lomas, who has previously been arrested on drug distribution charges, claims Gordon was ‘elsewhere in the residence’ and it was he who removed her from the tub.
Lomas’ lawyer told Access Hollywood on Wednesday that it was his client ‘who began the process of hopefully helping her recover.’
‘Max was actually the one that found her and he’s the one that removed her from bathtub and called 9-1-1, and Max is the one who began the process of hopefully helping her recover,’ said Phillip Holloway.
According to Holloway, the experience was traumatic for his client.
‘He was terrorized. It was absolute pure panic, and he was frightened for his friend, his close friend who was not breathing and did not appear to show any signs of life. He’s petrified,’ Holloway said. ‘And he wanted to get her the help that she so desperately needed at the time.’
According to Holloway, Gordon arrived in the bathroom he started CPR on Bobbi Kristina as Lomas did not know how to conduct life-saving measures.
‘Max assisted in the best of his ability – he’s not trained in CPR – but he’s the one who removed her from the bathtub and called 9-1-1,’ Holloway said. Daily Mail
