"This is his worst nightmare: Losing Whitney Houston was hard, but this is a million times worse, and to lose her in the same way would devastate him,” a family source told People Sunday of the “Every Little Step” singer, who’s been flanked by family friend Tyler Perry at Bobbi’s bedside.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the 21-year-old was first taken to Atlanta’s North Fulton Hospital, with a nurse telling MediaTakeOut.com that she was brain dead after she reportedly went without oxygen for an extended period prior to being recovered from a bathtub. She was later moved to a different hospital in the area, her father’s lawyer Christopher Brown told the NY Post early Monday.
The source said that the family presented a united front holding vigil for Houston and Brown’s daughter, as “everyone is holding hands, praying, hoping for the best.
“Everyone knows where things are at,” the source told the magazine, adding that doctors have said that while possible, a full recovery would be a miracle.
In related news, Roswell Police Department spokeswoman Lisa Holland told Us Weekly that “there were no drugs out in the open” when authorities searched Brown’s home in the wake of the Saturday morning incident, when police were summoned to her home at around 10:20 a.m. ET by a friend named Max.
"We don't leave any stone unturned, so the police took a search warrant on the home,” Holland said. “Before the warrant, initially when the police went into the home there were nothing there that indicated that anything out of the ordinary happened.”
On Twitter, musical stars such as Lady Gaga, Missy Elliott and M.C. Hammer all sent their well wishes to Brown and her family during the tough time.
The tragic twist of fate comes nearly three years after her mother’s Feb. 11, 2012 death at 48 in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton. Bobbi stayed mum a few weeks back when asked about the Lifetime biopic of her mother had aired.
