Our hearts break for Bobbi Kristina’s family. Even though Whitney Houston’s daughter was revived after she was found unconscious in a tub on Jan. 31, doctors are now fearing the worst, as she’s been placed in a medically induced coma, according to a new report.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, has allegedly been placed in a medically induced coma for swelling of the brain, a shocking new report claims. This comes after Whitney Houston‘s daughter was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home earlier today, Jan. 31. Did she overdose on drugs? Here’s what we know.
Bobbi Kristina Brown In Coma: Doctors Fear For Her Life After Possible Overdose
Bobbi Kristina Brown is not doing well, TMZ reports, and doctors are fearing the worst. This is a sad and shocking new development, as just a few hours ago, Bobbi Kristina was stabilized and breathing again.
Doctors are not confirming any details about Bobbi Kristina’s condition at this time, but if drugs were involved (and we’re not saying they were), things may take a turn for the worse.
“When you overdose, the person will go into a coma and then eventually die because the drug will affect areas in the brain that tell your lungs to breathe. So, you will just stop breathing. Most overdoses occur when drugs are combined. The person’s breathing becoming slower, the brain is damaged through lack of oxygen, and eventually the person dies. Early detection signs of overdose are not being able to get a response, very slurred speech, lips turning blue, and slow breathing. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone dies from overdoses. Although, overdoses can cause death immediately,” Steven Orenstein, LMFT, who runs the Neurodevelopmental Learning Institute in Los Angeles, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“It does not look good. We don’t think Bobbi Kristina is going to pull through,” a source close to the family also told us EXCLUSIVELY.
