Update: Bobbi Kristina ‘fighting for her life’

(Reuters) – The daughter of late pop star Whitney Houston is fighting for her life two days after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at her suburban Atlanta home, her family said on Monday.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, Houston’s 21-year-old daughter with singer Bobby Brown, was rushed to a hospital in Roswell, Georgia, Saturday morning after her husband and a friend found her in the tub and her husband performed CPR.

“Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family,” the Houston family said in a statement. “As her father already stated, we are asking you to honour our request for privacy during this difficult time.”

Citing an unidentified source close to the family, CNN reported she was in a medically induced coma and breathing with the help of a ventilator.

Her brain function will not be known until doctors reduce the sedatives she is receiving, the source told CNN.

Tara Landy, a spokeswoman for North Fulton Hospital, declined to comment on Brown’s condition.
