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.
I have no desire to be the first to report, and no joy in reporting when the life support has been removed. It will happen. There will be a funeral. There will be an outcome of the criminal investigation. I will report all of that when the facts are clear. In the meantime, I’ll continue to provide a daily update if there is anything at all to report.
Today there were statements by Leolah Brown, Bobby Brown, and Bobby Brown’s attorney.
Today, Leolah Brown, Bobby Brown’s sister is making some publicity appearances. Today she told FOX5News in Atlanta that Krissi is improving. “We know that she’s opening her eyes, that’s true. She’s opening her eyes and there’s a few more things that she’s doin’. But Krissi is doing well right now.” Reporter Aungelique Proctor asks incredulously, The doctors have told the family she is improving???” Leolah says, ” Yes mam.”
In another clip from an interview with Leolah she says, ” I’m very hopeful that everything will be alright with Krissi. Ummm there are so many signs showing us that she will be okay. In spite of what people are saying over the Internet, Krissi is fine.”
You really have to see the interview to understand what is going on here. Leolah is in denial. Leolah is also one who loves an interview. She interviewed with Dr. Drew after Whitney’s death and had a conspiracy theory that Whitney was murdered. She also said that Krissi was in danger of the same fate. Leolah was also at the vigil for Bobbi Brown last night. Leolah also posted a long post on Facebook last night implying that we all need to get right with Allah and mentioning Louis Farrakhan because we never know when our time will come. It seemed like she was trying to come to terms with the inevitable.
Proctor, “So what about this notion that tomorrow is the day the plug will be pulled so that she and her mother will symbolically be together forever?” Leolah, ” No… I haven’t even seen that personally….in the media… but I’ve been hearing about it. My phone has been ringing. People have been calling me telling me, it’s in the paper. It’s this and that, but that’s not what I’m getting. ” Proctor states that Leolah, “has never met Nick Gordon but she knows Bobbi Kristina loves him” If Leolah said that in an interview, she sure didn’t show it on camera. What she did say was, “When I first heard…uh that he was in the picture, …like where did Nick come from? I worked with Whitney. I lived in the home and he was never there. I never saw Nick. I lived in Bobby and Whitney’s house. I took care of Krissi. I never ever seen Nick.” Proctor, “So this notion that she almost adopted him, he’s lived in her house since he was 12.. not true?” Leolah shakes her head and says “No.”
Sidenote: Leolah and Bobby were long gone by the time Nick showed up at Whitney’s house.
Leolah told the Proctor that when all is said and done and everything is revealed she believes there will be criminal charges in this case.
Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant told media today, “We are still investigating. Can’t say that it’s going to lead to charges. Can’t say it’s not.”
In other news today, the 911 tape on the domestic disturbance call from January 23rd has been released. The security guard at the gated townhouses called to report that people where hitting each other outside their (Bobbi and Nick’s) residence. When the police came, there was no one home.
“We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended.” Said Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC, legal counsel for Bobby Brown. “However the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time. In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Daily Mail (UK) citing, police sources, family sources and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be “first” has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.” Brown added.
Bobby Brown made this statement today.
“We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for Bobbi Kristina. God is hearing our prayers.” Said Bobby Brown.
Those are all the sad facts from today. I’ll keep you updated as needed.
