Bobby Brown Tells Crowd “Bobbi Kristina Is Awake”

Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically induced coma since January 31, when she was found face down in her Atlanta home’s bathtub. We pretty much know by now that she will never recover or awaken — her organs don’t want to function on their own and chances are, she sustained some pretty irreparable brain damage during the ordeal. While I completely respect the family’s refusal to let her go just yet, I do think it’s pretty weird that Bobby Brown performed a concert this weekend and told fans that Bobbi is awake… kinda?

From TMZ:

Bobby Brown stunned his audience during a concert Saturday night, when he told the crowd, “Bobbi is awake.  She’s watching me.”

It’s unclear what Brown is really saying.  On the one had, if you take the first comment at face value it seems he’s saying Bobbi Krisina is out of the coma she’s been in since January 31st.

But when Bobby says, “She’s watching me,” it makes it sound like something other than consciousness.

Bobby made the comment at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas.

I think we can all agree that Bobbi is not “awake” in the literal sense of the world. The Houston family would be shouting that from the rooftops in joy if that were the case. Obviously he was being figurative and must feel like Bobbi is acting as his angel or watching OVER him.

Nick Gordon won’t see Bobbi Kristina or talk to police

Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s fake-husband-actually boyfriend Nick Gordon has been banned from the hospital where she’s currently in a coma, and he’s also under investigation by police for being an abusive prick. While Nick’s playing the part of the aggrieved lover rather unconvincingly, he’s not willing to meet Bobby Brown‘s demands for being allowed to see his beloved: talk to the police about the allegations against him.

From TMZ:

Brown lawyer says, “To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon’s requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit.”

The lawyer won’t say what “term” Gordon must meet, but it’s pretty apparent.  TMZ broke the story there’s a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when she was rushed to the hospital, and Nick is the target of the investigation.  Seems obvious … Brown wants Nick to talk to cops.

The lawyer certainly hinted he wants Nick to sit down with police, saying, “We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to the investigation.”

As far as we know Nick has not been interviewed by police and the investigation is ongoing.

Nick made a public plea Saturday night to allow him in the hospital, claiming he’s the one who can bring his girlfriend back to life, but Brown’s lawyer scoffs, saying, “Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe.”

Yikes. This whole situation is just awful all around and has no chance of ever getting any better. But how on earth is Nick being investigated, and yet he’s allowed to refuse to speak to police? Isn’t that… not optional at this point? What the hell kind of investigation is this, anyway?

If this asshole had nothing to hide, he’d be more than willing to speak to police, whether or not it was a condition of his ability to see his girlfriend. Fuck off with this dude.

Bobby Brown hopes God will save Bobbi Kristina

bobby brown bobbi kristina

Despite reports that began circulating yesterday that Bobbi Kristina‘s family had decided to turn off her life support machines, this is apparently NOT the case, and Bobbi is still alive, though barely. Yesterday was her father Bobby Brown‘s birthday, and he spent it at Bobbi’s bedside, hoping for a bit of a miracle. While doctors have told him the situation is pretty much hopeless, Bobby hopes that God will save his daughter.

From TMZ:

Bobby Brown is adamant … he doesn’t want to take his daughter Bobbi Kristina off life support because he believes in God-driven miracles.

Bobby’s feelings are not shared by doctors, who have advised him she will not improve and pulling life support is an appropriate action. But Brown and his family — who are deeply religious — believe doctors cannot account for miracles … miracles the family has seen before.

We’re told Bobbi Kristina’s condition has remained the same since Monday morning … her brain functions are minimal and there has been no improvement.

Family sources say this has been an ongoing discussion and they believe Brown could come around to the doctor’s point of view as time goes on … but as of late Thursday he’s not budging.

When his daughter was transferred to Emory University Hospital Tuesday Brown was hopeful the renowned staff could do something, but the fact that there’s been no change is what doctors believe is the handwriting on the wall.

To be honest, I can’t imagine being in such an awful position. It’s been less than a week since this tragedy occurs, so I don’t think it’s unreasonable that Bobby Brown wouldn’t want to pull the plug on his daughter yet, and that he’s holding out for some kind of improvement. I don’t think it’s something you come to terms with easily, and there’s probably no small amount of guilt there, considering Bobby’s own issues with drugs and the way he and Whitney exposed Bobbi to such things from a very young age…

Bobbi Kristina is not in good shape, Bobby Brown releases statement

bobbi kristina bobby brown

Such a sad situation – as you know, Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home on Saturday and has since been placed in a medically-induced coma to help with brain swelling. Things aren’t going well, since according to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina is on a ventilator and doctors have said that her brain function is “alarmingly low” – meaning even if she does wake up, it’s not clear if she’ll be able to function to any degree.

Bobbi’s father, Bobby Brown, released a statement yesterday to US Weekly:

“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”

I know I’ve already said it, but this whole thing is so, so sad. Bobbi Kristina never really stood a chance, did she? I mean, she grew up with two parents who were drug addicts (to the point that they allegedly did drugs around her) and allowed her to be involved in the self-destructive world of substance abuse from an early age. When Whitney died, I think it pushed Bobbi over the edge – they were incredibly close and I just don’t think she could cope.

I hope she makes a turnaround, but if this was intentional, I don’t think there’s anything to keep Bobbi from trying again. Really, really unfortunate all around.

Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina Married Her Brother Lover

bobbi kristina

Last summer, Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina announced that she was engaged to her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon – news that wasn’t so welcome to her father, Bobby Brown, or… anyone else, really. However, we knew it was going to happen and indeed, now it seems it has, since Bobbi posted the following photo on Twitter:


Bobbi Kristina is only 20, so that’s a major red flag and a sign that this thing isn’t really going to last all that long. A lot of people think that the sibling relationship they shared makes their whole relationship problematic, but eh, I’m pretty live and let live in that sense. They’re not related by blood, and even if they were, what’s it to any of us? That’s not to say I’m some huge proponent of incest, but I dunno, it just doesn’t seem that unnatural to me that they would end up together when they grew up around each other. Is it ill-conceived? Sure, getting married to anyone at 20 probably is. That being said, that’s more of a problem here than the fact that he was like her “adopted brother”, I think. That being said, I do think if Whitney was still alive, she wouldn’t be having ANY of it.

What do you guys think?

Bobby Brown Isn’t Too Pleased About Bobbi Kristina’s Engagement

bobbi kristina nick gordon

So, Bobbi Kristina is marrying her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon. In the words of Fred Armisen as Joy Behar, “So what, who cares?” He’s not her ACTUAL brother, and even if he was, that’s kinda nasty but kinda doesn’t affect anyone but them, so I don’t see why everyone is so up in arms about it. One person in particular who’s not too happy is Bobbi’s father Bobby Brown.

TMZ asked Bobby if he was excited for Bobbi’s nuptials, to which he replied:

“I’m not. [But] it’s not a question of whether I like him [Nick Gordon] or not… I just want her to be happy.”

LOL! Here’s a bit more:

Bobby made it clear he doesn’t approve … and reveals that Nick never even called him up to ask for her hand in marriage. The Brown family isn’t exactly the tightest bunch — Bobbi Kristina doesn’t talk to her dad, so why would Nick?

Hmm, very true. Bobby is being a bit unreasonable here and doesn’t really have any room to make demands, but we’ll let him spout off for now.

Bobby Brown Sentenced To Jail

bobby brown dui

Bobby Brown, singer and Whitney Houston‘s ex husband, is sentenced to 55 days in jail for driving drunk. This is his third DUI charge. Yeah.

From TMZ,

Brown was arrested in October after cops pulled the singer over for driving erratically, and smelled alcohol in his ride.

Bobby was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license following the incident. (Brown’s license had been suspended as a result of his previous DUI conviction in 2012. Bobby was also convicted of DUI in 1996.)

Bobby pled no contest to the charges today. He was sentenced to the jail time, plus 4 years probation. He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program.

My God. Seriously, Bobby Brown? Seriously? I mean, I know you’ve never been the moral compass that guides us all, but seriously? Your third DUI?

Do you think he’ll actually wind up spending that many days in jail? Or will it be the revolving door policy as is so common with celebrities? He has until March 20 to turn himself in. In the meantime he has to attend 3 AA meetings per week.
