Whitney Houston's daughter 'fine' following bathtub drama

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter Bobbi Kristina is said to be "pretty good" and "doing fine" after she was found unresponsive and face down in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Georgia on Saturday (31Jan15).

The superstar offspring was found by her husband Nick Gordon, who performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on her before she was rushed to hospital.


Her cousin Jerod Brown revealed the family is praying for a speedy recovery at her bedside at North Fulton Hospital but did not comment on reports she had been placed in a medically-induced coma.


He tells Sky News, "She's pretty good right now, she's around family. What I do want to say is thanks for all the prayers and support that the fans have been showing Bobbi Kristina. We're just praying for a speedy recovery, that's it. She's doing fine right now. That's all I can give you right now. I'm pretty sure she'll be getting out of there very soon.


Bobbi Kristina's bathtub incident comes just two weeks before the third anniversary of her mother's death. Houston was found unconscious in a hotel bathtub in Los Angeles on 11 February, 2012.


The cause of her death was accidental drowning, and a toxicology report found the singer had a cocktail of drugs, including cocaine, marijuana and Xanax, in her body.


When asked how Bobbi Kristina was coping with the forthcoming anniversary, Jerod said, "She's in good spirits. Of course she goes through the grieving because it's still fresh, but other than that she's doing fine."
