Whitney Houston's Daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, Found Unresponsive in Bathtub

Posted: Updated:
NBC News - Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home Saturday before being rushed to the hospital, police said. 

Brown's husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her in the tub before 10:20 a.m. and started CPR, said Roswell police spokeswoman Officer Lisa Holland. Police and rescue personnel arrived at the subdivision, north of Atlanta, and performed life-saving measures before Brown, 21, was brought alive and breathing to the nearby North Fulton Hospital.

Detectives don't believe foul play was involved, and the incident is being treated as a medical investigation, Holland said Saturday afternoon. No further information about Brown's condition was made available. Police were last called to the home on Jan. 23 after a reported "fight," but officers found no evidence when they arrived, Holland said.

Brown's scare comes less than two weeks before the third anniversary of her mother's death. Houston, a seven-time Grammy winner, was found submerged in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills, California, hotel on Feb. 11, 2012. She was later pronounced dead. Brown is also the daughter of R&B singer Bobby Brown.

"Obviously the mother died in this very same manner, with her being found deceased in a tub and again, two years later, this is happening here," Holland told NBC affiliate WXIA. "Obviously we wish this family well, and our thoughts and prayers are with this family."

Houston, 48, had struggled for years with cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her behavior had become erratic. Authorities examining Houston's death found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the hotel suite. They concluded that she accidentally drowned. Heart disease and cocaine use were also listed as contributing factors in her death.

Earlier this month, Lifetime released the biopic, "Whitney," which focused on the "I Will Always Love You" singer's drug use. Houston's sister-in-law, Pat Houston, released a statement blasting the film and said neither her mother, Cissy Houston, or Bobbi Kristina Brown, were consulted.
