Bobby Brown is tired of the news media speculation about the condition of his 21-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, currently in an Atlanta hospital. Through his lawyer, Christopher Brown, he’s released the following statement to address the speculation and rumors that have been rampant in the days since Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhouse.
“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.
“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.
The Brown family has been virtually under siege since Bobbi Kristina was found and various news media reports about her condition and what happened before she was found have been speculative, unconfirmed and conflicting. So far, aside from the family statements, there has been no other information.
Some outlets have reported that Tyler Perry, who flew Bobby Brown out to Atlanta on his plane and Bow Wow, a friend of the family, have been by Bobbi Kristina’s bedside. The Daily Mail, cited as one of the media outlets that have provided false reports, did have photos of Cissy Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, and Pat Houston, her aunt, visiting Atlanta’s Emory Hospital, where Bobbi Kristina apparently remains in a coma.
Bobby Brown’s wife, Alicia Etheredge, has her own legal problems. Etheredge, who is pregnant with her second child with Brown, is facing an arrest warrant due to a no-show in court in November. Etheredge was due in court for a probation hearing stemming from a 2006 DUI charge. She pled guilty and received 5 years probation, but had her probation revoked several times. It was revoked again after her no-show and there is currently a $10,000 bench warrant pending.
