Los Angeles, June 27 (IANS) Singer-actor Bobby Brown is struggling to cope with the news that his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to a hospice, says his New Edition bandmate Johnny Gill.
“State of mind? In a nutshell, not good. Not good. We just had a conversation yesterday. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy,” Gill told etonline.com of Bobby.
Earlier this week, a $40 million lawsuit was filed by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, claiming that her boyfriend Nick Gordon controlled her by limiting who she could interact with.
The lawsuit also accuses Gordon of prior domestic violence, including, “punching (Bobbi Kristina) in the face, knocking out a front tooth, and dragging her upstairs by her hair”.
Gill said that he’s withholding judgement on these allegations until it’s all sorted out.
“We at the end of the day have to sit still until everything is completed to be able to make a full assessment of how to deal and what happens next,” he said.
“But it’s a lot, a lot that’s going on. A lot,” he added.
As for how much Brown knew of what was going on with his daughter and Gordon, Gill admits that his band mate’s bond with Bobbi Kristina wasn’t too strong.
“It was no secret that Bobby and Bobbi Kris had an estranged relationship for a certain period of time,” Gill said. “One Father’s Day, it was a few years back, she called and he was just so over the top and elated that she had reached out. They started from that point to rebuild that part of their relationship.”
Bobbi Kristina, who turned 22 on March 4, has been on a ventilator in a medically-induced coma since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31. She’s now residing at a Georgia hospice care facility.
A source close to the family shared that the only daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston and Bobby is now off all medications and could pass away at any moment.
