Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston's daughter, dies

The daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston has died at the age of 22.

Bobbi Kristina Brown had been in a medically induced coma for six months after suffering irreversible brain damage.

Last January Brown, who was the only child of Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, was discovered face down and unresponsive in a bathtub.

She was discovered by her husband Nick Gordon but at the time it is said that she didn’t appear to be breathing and lacked a pulse before emergency services arrived.

A month ago she was moved to a hospice in the city of Duluth, Georgia, after her condition deteriorated.

Her death comes three years after Houston, who battled substance abuse, drowned in a bathtub in Beverly Hills. Cocaine use and heart disease are said to have contributed to her death.

Her daughter was hospitalised twice with anxiety after her mother died.
