Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family members have no plans of taking her off life support anytime soon, even though reports suggested that her aunt Pat Houston has been trying to convince Bobby Brown — who is entitled to take all medical decision on behalf of his daughter — to remove the machines.
“You have to put yourself in Bobby’s position,” a family member told the People magazine, adding: “If there was a 1% chance that she was in there, wouldn’t you wait? Your daughter would deserve that.”
Family members, including grandmother Cissy Houston, are hoping that Bobbi Kristina will recover soon. There are, however, concerns of permanent damages to the 22-year-old as she has remained in a medically induced coma for nearly 10 weeks.
“If she’s in there somewhere, and I hope to Jesus that she is, what would happen if she woke up? I don’t know,” the family source said, according to the People magazine, adding: “She hasn’t been walking or even sitting up.”
While some reports suggest that the family is squabbling over Bobbi Kristina’s $20 million inheritance, the source told the magazine that money was not a concern.
“Bobby is not thinking about the money and never has been,” the family source, adding: “I want to think that Pat and Gary [Houston] aren’t thinking about the money either. We all want what’s best for Krissy, and that has never changed. It doesn’t matter if she has $20 million or $2 in the bank. We love her and want her to recover.”
The report follows Bobby Brown’s plans to continue his Australia tour due to a contractual agreement, forcing him to leave his daughter’s bedside. Concert promoters are reportedly holding Bobby Brown, who is also a singer, accountable to the obligations stated in his tour contract despite his daughter’s condition. Bobby Brown, who had earlier canceled a few shows, had asked to cancel more dates, but was denied the request. The dates he is now set to appear on, are expected to make up for his previously canceled shows.
Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in her bathtub at her Atlanta home on Jan. 31 and was admitted at Emory University Hospital. Last month, she was moved to Dekalb Medical facility, where she is in now being treated in a private room.
Investigators are also reportedly questioning her boyfriend Nick Gordon, who has not been allowed to visit Bobbi Kristina.
