Today marks what would have been the 23rd birthday of Bobbi Kristina Brown – Whitney Houston‘s only child.
Yet, with her passing at the age of 22 last July, today has instead seen the final results from her autopsy unsealed – at the request of several media outlets.
More on the unfortunate story below…
Furthermore, the medical examiner’s office said alcohol, marijuana and drugs used for sedation/to treat anxiety were involved. Despite this insight, it wasn’t possible to decipher whether her death was accidental or intentional – two theories which many have weighed in on.
Speaking on the reveal, Bobbi’s father – singer Bobby Brown – released a statement saying:
“First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl. For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter’s autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family.
Christopher Brown, the Brown family’s lawyer, added:
“While this action is unsettling, we will continue in our efforts in the civil lawsuit and the criminal investigation. Bobby Brown has had to be strong and mourn his loved ones in a fashion that is foreign to most people. So public, so raw, with apparently no end in sight. Hopefully public indictments and prosecution will lead to private healing and closure for Bobby Brown and his family.”
As widely reported, the litigation mentioned refers to the case the Brown’s are pursuing against Bobbi Kristina’s lover Nick Gordon – who is accused of abusing her both physically and emotionally.
No matter how much time passes, the entire Whitney Houston narrative remains one of the saddest tragedies in modern music memory.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
