Cissy Houston Says Bobbi Kristina Remains Unresponsive and Her Brain Damage Is "Irreversible"

Bobbi Kristina Brown may no longer be in a medically induced coma, but she remains unresponsive, her grandmother Cissy Houston tells Us Weekly in a statement.

"I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive," Houston told Us via a statement on Monday, April 20. "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me.  We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time," she concluded.  "Keep us in your prayers."

Cissy’s comments come after Bobbi’s dad Bobby Brown clarified (via his lawyer) his comments he made about her status over the weekend. After telling the crowd during a performance that “Bobbi is awake,” Bobby’s lawyer tells Us Weekly that Bobbi has improved and “will live a long life” but the “quality of her life will not be known for years to come.”
