Bobbi Kristina Brown is still unconscious in hospital and being kept alive with life support machines. Though doctors have reportedly told her father there's nothing more they can do, and that it was time to take her off, the family is praying and keeping hope alive.
New reports are now saying that they have agreed to take her off life support, but want to wait until Wednesday so she can die on the same date as her mother, Whitney Houston. The move is a symbolic way to keep the mother and daughter together for eternity, according to a
Brown family source.
Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy Houston floated the idea of a Feb. 11 death over the weekend during discussions with the Brown family at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, the Post reports.
According to their source, the Brown and Houston families have been bickering since Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital, but they have now come to grips with the fact that she cannot be saved.
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 agonizing choice to finally pull the plug on the young woman was made by both sides.
“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.”
Filmmaker Tyler Perry, who was close to Whitney, played a key role in brokering an uneasy peace 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.”
