Bobby Brown is bringing his family together to celebrate Bobbi Kristina’s birthday as she continues to fight for her life.
Today is Bobbi’s 22nd birthday, and TMZ.com reports that her father is going to mark the occasion by holding a vigil at the hospital where she’s being treated. Sources close to the situation have said that Bobby is inviting his family out for the event, which he’s been planning for a few days.
Whitney Houston’s side of Bobbi’s family has been at the hospital pretty consistently, but the Browns haven’t really been allowed in her hospital room much. Supposedly only Bobby and his wife Alicia Etheridge have been to Bobbi’s bedside since she was found unconscious in a bathtub in late January.
This vigil will be the first time more of the Brown family will be able to come in, but the hospital is only making this exception because this is how Bobby wants to celebrate his daughter’s special day.
There’s no word on whether Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick Gordon will be welcome to attend the vigil, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if he went to the hospital today.
Of course, Nick might be too busy prepping for his fast-approaching sitdown with Dr. Phil.
According to TMZ, Nick will recount the events that led up to Bobbi’s tragic accident on “Dr. Phil” in just a few days. The TV life coach will also chat with Nick about his struggles with Bobby during the interview.
Nick might want to watch what he says, though, as he is the focus of a criminal investigation and anything he says can be used against him.
