For the first time in weeks, Bobby Brown is speaking out about his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
The focus for his family, he said, is on her care and the ongoing investigation into what precipitated her Jan. 31 hospitalization.
“I am making decisions with [Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law] Pat Houston and we are working together for the medical care of my daughter,” he said in a statement to ABC News. “Right now we are focused on Bobbi Kristina’s medical prognosis and the criminal investigation. These are the priorities for us. Whoever had a hand in causing my daughter’s injuries needs to be brought to justice.”
Added Christopher Brown, an attorney for Bobby Brown, “Bobbi Kristina is not going home to die, as numerous news affiliates and websites have reported.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, was found unresponsive in a bathtub nearly five months ago and, after spending several weeks in the hospital, was moved to a rehabilitation facility in March. In April, her maternal grandmother, Cissy Houston, said that she had “irreversible brain damage” and “remains unresponsive.” However, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, Bobby Brown’s wife, said that her husband had been “encouraged by the steps that Bobbi Kristina has made.”
“She has made it out of ICU, opened her eyes, and started a rehabilitation that will be long and hard,” Etheredge-Brown said in late April. “We will hold on to all the blessings God gives us to help her at this time.”
