Bobbi Kristina Brown has been placed into a medically induced coma after she was found unconscious in a bathtub.
Whitney Houston’s daughter was rushed to a hospital near Roswell, Georgia, yesterday after her husband Nick Gordon found her face down in the tub, People.com reports. According to TMZ.com, doctor placed her in the coma due to swelling of the brain.
TMZ also reports that her father Bobby Brown arrived at the medical facility last night with Tyler Perry right behind him, and they have been at Bobbi’s bedside ever since. Tyler had been traveling from Los Angeles to Atlanta when he heard about Bobbi and he immediately offered to fly Bobby out with him.
There is still no word on what caused Bobbi to pass out yesterday, but People reports that she is in stable condition in ICU, where she has been placed on a ventilator.
“She’s pretty good right now, she’s around family,” Bobbi’s cousin, Jerod Brown, told Sky News. “We’re just praying for a speedy recovery, that’s it.”

Sadly, doctors have revealed that Bobbi’s condition is actually getting worse. Reportedly, her brain function is much lower than normal. While medical professionals do encourage her supporters to continue praying, but they warn that things are not looking good for her.
