Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of late singing legend Whitney Houston, was fighting for her life on Monday (2nd Feb) after she was pulled unconscious from a bathtub over the weekend, her family said.

The 21-year-old’s boyfriend and a friend found her non-responsive in the bathtub of her home near Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday in an incident with eerie echoes of her mother’s drowning in a Los Angeles tub in 2012. According to People, police have declined to comment on whether illegal substances were found in the home Brown shared with her longtime love, Nick Gordon.

“Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family,” the Houston family said in a statement provided to US media.

There has been no official word of Brown’s condition, but several US media outlets including CNN and the TMZ.com entertainment news site have cited family sources as saying she was in a medically induced coma.

“We are asking you to honour our request for privacy during this difficult time,” the family statement added. “Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support.”

Whitney Houston died in February 2012 when she was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on the eve of the music industry’s annual Grammy Awards show. Coroners concluded she died by accidental drowning, with cocaine use and heart disease as contributing factors.
