Bobbi Kristina Brown has died at the age of 22 on Sunday six months after she was discovered unconscious at her home. The daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found in a bathtub and has been in an induced coma and on life support since.

Bobbi Kristina turned 22 years old on the 3rd of March while unresponsive and her mother Whitney died in similarly tragic circumstances after accidentally drowning in her bathtub. She was moved to Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia late last month after spending the majority of that time in hospital.

Bobby Brown released a statement through his lawyer saying "Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.

A statement posted to the Whitney Houston Facebook page read "It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers. As Bobbi Kristina would say: 'The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face."

A post mortem will be carried out in the coming weeks to gain more insight into the exact cause of Bobbi Kristina's death. Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office have said that although the duration of the coma will "complicate" matters, "an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death."
