Bobbi Kristina has passed away at the age of just 22-years-old.
The daughter of singing legend Whitney Houston was admitted into hospital in January 2015, after being discovered unresponsive at her home. She was placed in a medically-induced coma. And she never regained consciousness.
A representative of the family has said that she passed away surrounded by her loved ones, and was “finally at peace in the arms of God”.
The statement said: “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. 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.”
Naturally world-renowned stars, from both the music and entertainment industries, have taken to social media to pay their respects and dedicate tributes to Bobbi.
Back in 1993, her mother Whitney told Rolling Stone magazine that “having Bobbi Kristina … I could never do anything that could top that. There’s been nothing more incredible in my life than having her.”
Sam Smith shared a touching throwback picture of Whitney with a young baby Bobbi, with the caption: “The most heartbreaking tale. May you both rest in peace, and find the happiness and contentment you couldn’t find in this world, in the next. My love and thoughts with all their family and friends on this sad night xx”
