There is once again a ton of misinformation about Bobbi Kristina happening today.
All we really know for sure is that she has been moved out of Emory. While reports indicate that she is being moved to an Atlanta facility, I just really think she may have been flown to New Jersey. We have been talking about that here for quite awhile. And there was no attempt to remove Krissi from anything. The events of the past couple of weeks have been all about preparing her body with ports for he family to keep her lungs and heart working. Continue reading
“In a national television exclusive, Dr. Phil conducts an emotionally charged intervention with Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon, offering Gordon the treatment he appears to so desperately need as he battles drug and alcohol addiction.
“With his mother Michelle at his side, Gordon expresses the severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering since Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in January and over the tragic loss of Whitney Houston three years ago.
Will he accept Dr. Phil’s offer for help?” Continue reading
Edited: Nick Gordon says he did CPR for 15 minutes and regrets he did not get to Krissi earlier.
” Nick Gordon CPR for 10-15min responding officer didn’t take over until EMS came it’s like re living my worst nightmare!!!!
Go take a peek at Nick’s twitter. He does have a point about BB.
Despite there being nothing substantial to report on Bobbi Kristina’s condition, local news continues to run story after story. I get it. People are interested. But do we really need to know every little detail and rumor no matter how inconsequential or accurate? Here are the broad strokes.
On Wednesday two things happened. First, as the three-week point neared, Krissi was prepared to be moved to a long-term care facility. Doctors at Emory performed a tracheostomy on Krissi. This is a common procedure when someone is expected to be on life support a long time. The breathing tube down the throat has a tendency to become a source of infection over time. A hole is cut in the trachea to attach the artificial breathing machine to the patient. It’s easier to keep the area clean. This information became know to the public on Thursday. While I was out running errands I heard the story on the radio. It seems that they also swapped out the feeding tube as well. All of this indicates that Krissi will soon be moved to a long-term care facility.
Also on Wednesday, Nick Gordon’s attorney made the following statement on his behalf, “Nick has been trying, privately; to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively. He has respected the family’s wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted.” Continue reading
Nick Gordon’s Facebook
Nick Gordon posted a picture of his new tattoo on his Facebook page on Valentine’s day. The very large tattoo of Krissi’s name is shown above. Interesting that the last name is not included. Continue reading
UPDATE: Despite TMZ’s “family sources” about organ failure, etc.. all of these speculations about what is happening inside the hospital about the details are unreliable. The fact of the matter is, Krissi lost oxygen to the brain for way to long to recover. It’s sadly a matter of time at this point. There will only be one outcome in the situation. No matter what random details sites throw out there, it is what it is.
On Thursday night Randy Kessler and Joe Habachy on behalf of their client, Nick Gordon released the following:
In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like it to be clear, he is not. Mr. Gordon’s only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina. He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon. Despite the incredible public interest, we ask and hope that this request can be resolved privately by Mr. Gordon and the family.
So I guess Nick is admitting he is not married to Bobbi Kristina. He is denying the interview by Jerod Brown is true or accurate. So Nick is not trying to visit Krissi. Or can’t legally visit Krissi.
More infighting with the Brown family today. Both Bobby Brown’s attorney, Christopher Brown and Bobby Brown himself seem to have made public statements today. Does that strike anyone as odd? If you have an attorney speaking to the press for you, why would you issue your own statement? Continue reading
Another Brown family member, 21 year old Jerrod Brown, Krissi’s cousin gave and interview today. And an accident report was released from an accident Krissi was involved in was released.
Nick Gordon is taking legal action in an attempt to get to visit Krissi in the hospital. He is currently not allowed to visit her. The last time he was allowed to visit was the Sunday after drowning occurred on the 31st of January. Some have asked about previous suicide attempts for Bobbi Kriss and there have been reports of them over the years despite her Aunt claiming she would never hurt herself. For some reason today, the incident where Nick called 911 in July 2013 saying she had fallen and was unresponsive is being mentioned in news stories. In that incident she was found disoriented and taken to the hospital. There have been other incidents.
Also today, reports surfaced that Bobbi Kristina was in a car accident that sent two people to the hospital four days before she drowned.

The condition of Bobbi Kristina Brown is big news in Atlanta and big money for some major tabloid websites. Right now we are all waiting it out. When will the family remove life support? Will Nick Gordon or Max Lomas face any criminal charges? So while we wait, people speculate. That speculation becomes rumor. Those rumors become “information from a reliable source” that appears in my inbox each morning. First the rumor was they would remove life support on Bobby Brown’s Birthday, now the rumor is that they will remove life support tomorrow on Whitney Houston’s death date. I honestly can’t believe anyone is paying these sorts of things any mind whatsoever. The family is dealing with a horrific situation. They are trying to come to grips with the fact that two hospitals have told them there is nothing more that can be done and Bobbi Kristina has minimal brain activity and is being kept alive through artificial means.
In these types of situations there are always people who see the inevitable decision that must be made more quickly than others. Some family members want to keep praying and hoping and sitting with the body of their loved one. Eventually, the person who is making the healthcare decision will have to give the okay to remove the life support. Bobby Brown appears to be the person who is making those decisions and he is struggling. He is not trying to figure out a cool date for the tombstone. He is trying to accept the situation. No one knows when he is going to do that. He may do it today, tomorrow, or a month from now.
My personal belief is the time will come soon. In theory, the concept of sitting beside your brain dead family member forever seems plausible. But it is not. The hospital will not allow it, and life will not allow it. Bobby Brown has a pregnant wife. Cissy Houston is an older woman with her own health concerns who will need to go back to her home and her doctors and her life. Pat Houston is rumored to be having blood pressure concerns from all the stress. This cannot go on much longer. The living must take care of themselves and move forward. Continue reading
UPDATE: NEWEST POST IS HERE
UPDATE: WSB Channel 2 is reporting that the injuries that the police found suspicious are on Bobbi Kristina’s face and mouth.
“A source close to the investigation says injuries to Bobbi Kristina’s face and mouth have Roswell police concerned and investigating further. Police are also looking into suspected drugs found in a home in the 9000 block of Riverbend Manor in Roswell.”
The family continues to remain at the hospital. I also heard to day that Pat Houston was treated at the hospital for extremely high blood pressure and is suffering physically from the stress of the situation.
Local CBS46 News is reporting that Bobby Brown is adamant about not removing Bobbi Kriss from life support. A purported close family friend, Monica Palmer, who has been in the hospital did an interview with CBS46 tonight. She says that Bobby Brown is convinced that prayer will save is daughter. Though Bobby himself was not caught by paps at Emory, Tyler Perry showed up today and Cissy was there for several hours other sources report.
Monica Palmer says the family is “sober but hopeful.” Monica, the *cough* “close family friend” *cough* says she thinks he is ” a father in pain.” No really? Thanks for going on TV to share that with us Monica! She admits she has no idea what Bobbi Kriss’s condition actually is. Um, I can help with that, doctors have said she doesn’t have enough brain activity to sustain a positive existence. But please, carry on Monica. Continue reading
I don’t usually like to refute other blogs information. However, I am being asked if the family has made the decision to take Bobbi Kristina off of life support. It has been clear to me for some time that there will not be a positive ending to this situation. There is not enough brain function for Bobbi Kristina to make a full recovery, or any recovery.
The family has been quoted by anonymous sources all day today and these sources tend to conflict with each other. Some say Bobby Brown is fighting with the Houstons. Some say he is fighting with Nick Gordon. Other sources say everyone has come together. Credible local news reports in Atlanta say that there has been increased activity regarding visitors to Bobbi Kristina today. Reporters have interpreted that as people coming to pay their last respects. Continue reading
