Bobbi Kristina Brown passes away

DULUTH, Ga. -- Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away.

The 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston had been unconscious after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Roswell home on Jan. 31.

Bobbi Kristina was rushed to North Fulton Hospital. She was later transferred to Emory University Hospital and placed in a medically-induced coma. In March, she was transferred to a nearby medical rehabilitation center. Despite months of treatment, she never regained consciousness.

The family announced on June 24 she was moved to hospice care.

"She is finally at peace in the arms of God," her family told NBC News in a statement. "We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

A lawsuit was recently filed by Brown's conservator and accuses Nick Gordon of abuse and claims he took money from her without authorization.

On Monday, Nick Gordon's mother, Michele Gordon, issued a statement saying:

The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family. Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they've been apart. Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time.

Whitney Houston was also found in a bathtub; her cause of death was ruled an accidental drowning.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner released a statement Monday morning about Bobbi Kristina's passing, saying it will take some time to determine her cause of death:

The death of Bobbi Kristina Brown has been reported to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office in accordance with state death investigation laws requiring investigation of known or suspected non-natural deaths. Because the events at her home leading to her death occurred in Fulton County (Roswell), her death has been reported to the Fulton County Medical Examiner for determination of the cause, manner, and circumstances of her death. Despite the long interval between her being found unresponsive and her death, an autopsy will still be necessary to further evaluate possible causes of death or contributing factors.

The time which has elapsed between the initial event on January 31st and her resulting death will complicate reconstruction of the events surrounding her initial unresponsiveness. Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging. However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.

No further information will be available from the Fulton County Medical Examiner at this time, and additional lab testing may take several weeks. The Roswell Police Department continues its investigation into the circumstances preceding and surrounding the time of the original incident leading to her death. Media are referred to the Roswell Police Department which will be informed of the medical examiner's progress and findings.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, known as Krissi, was born in Livingston, N.J. The daughter of two musicians, she also tried to make it in the music business. Her parents' 14-year marriage, which was featured in the 2005 Bravo reality show Being Bobby Brown, ended in 2007.

Krissi was featured in the 2012 Lifetime special, The Houstons: On Our Own.
