(7/27) Bobbi Kristina Brown to Be Buried with Whitney Houston, Longtime Boyfriend Learned of Her Death from the Internet

ET reports that Bobbi Kristina Brown will be buried next to her mother, Whitney Houston.

Bobbi Kristina passed away on Sunday, July 26 at the age of 22, nearly six months after she was found unconscious in her bathtub. Though it was alleged that she was under the influence of drugs on the morning of the inciting incident, the exact cause of her unresponsive state and death still remain unclear.

On Monday July, 27, a representative from the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed to the Associated Press that an autopsy will be performed in an attempt to tie up loose ends.

“Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging,” the statement read. “However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.”

A source close to the family now tells Entertainment Tonight that Bobbi Kristina’s body will be flown to New Jersey to be buried alongside of her mother after funeral services in Georgia have concluded. Houston’s only child was only 18 years old when she passed away due to a cocaine overdose. According to reports, Bobbi Kristina was sedated and hospitalized after suffering a hysterical breakdown in response to her mother’s death.

Houston’s Facebook page paid tribute to the R&B legend’s daughter an hour after the news of her passing had broke.

It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks…

UsWeekly reports that Bobbi Kristina’s longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon was informed of her death “just like everyone else did, from the Internet” while in Florida with his mother. Bobby Brown banned Gordon from hospital visits and will be denied entrance to funeral services. A source tells People that he is “very upset”.

“You can say what you want about him and Bobbi Kristina, but he really did love her very much, and is devastated that she is gone.”

Gordon was served with a hefty lawsuit earlier in July from Brown’s conservators that accuses him of domestic abuse and withdrawing funds from her account. However, he was instructed by his lawyers not to open the paperwork because they were served on a Sunday, which is illegal in Florida.

The daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga., home on Jan. 31.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has died at age 22. She had been found unconscious in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga., home on Jan. 31 and rushed to a nearby hospital. She died in in a long-term care facility in Atlanta, according to reports.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” a rep told The Hollywood Reporter. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

Bobbi Kristina, an aspiring singer, was discovered by her longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and friends on Jan. 31. Once transferred to the medical facility, she was placed on a ventilator and had reportedly stabilized before her brain functions began to diminish substantially.

Brown was the only child of Houston and Brown, who divorced when she was a teenager. She was also part of a long dynasty of performers; her maternal grandmother was the gospel singer Cissy Houston, and Whitney Houston was the cousin of Dionne Warwick. Brown shared her relatives’ musical aspirations; she did duets with her mother many times before Houston’s passing, including on Houston’s album One Wish: The Holiday Album and during a high-profile, televised concert in Central Park. She also appeared on the Lifetime reality show The Houstons: On Our Own.

In 2014, Brown said she married Gordon, a longtime friend who had lived with the Houstons as a child and whom Brown had referred to as a “big brother” previously. After the media speculated about the nature of their union, and if Gordon had been adopted by Houston, Brown retorted on her Facebook, page, saying, “My mom never adopted him. In fact, mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating. My mom knows me better than any of you.” Later, her family said the two never actually got married.

Brown’s untimely death shares a tragic similarity with her mother’s passing; Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012, at age 48. The death was caused by accidental drowning, heart disease and cocaine use.

After Brown was found in her bathtub, her cousin YF Kennedy told E! News that the family wasn’t sure why she had been found unresponsive. “Krissi doesn’t do drugs,” he said. “She hasn’t been drinking or doing drugs and she’s cut down on cigarettes. She’s been trying to get her music together and keep her voice clean. Her voice is so beautiful.”

He added that Brown had struggled with the upcoming anniversary of her mother’s death. “She’s still been going through the grieving stages but is trying to keep her spirits up,” he said. “She’s been going to the gym every day with her husband and trying to be happy. She swims a lot.. It’s a rough time lately with the anniversary… This is a blow to the family.”
