Our hearts continue to break for Bobbi Kristina’s family. While Bobby revealed that his daughter is ‘awake’, Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy is ‘destroyed’ over the claims of the seemingly good news due to the fact that Bobby may be giving ‘false signs of hope,’ a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Things have appeared to look up for Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, now that she is “awake” and no longer on life support. However, Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy Houston, 81, is still praying for a miracle. After Bobby Brown, 46, revealed his daughter was awake, Cissy is hurting even more because she feels she “can’t go through the ups and downs” all over again, as Bobbi fights to fully recover. Here’s what we EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Cissy Houston On Bobbi Kristina Brown ‘Awake’ Claims — She’s ‘Destroyed’
“Bobby saying Bobbi Kristina is awake is something we all wish for and want to be true but Bobby’s hurting Whitney [Houston]’s side of the family, especially the elders, with false signs of hope,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It killed Cissy to see Bobbi lying in that hospital bed lifeless. It nearly destroyed her. It was beyond excruciating for Cissy to sit and listen to doctors tell her that her granddaughter wasn’t going to make it.”
So heartbreaking. While Bobbi has been taken off life support, Cissy is still praying for a miracle to happen after Bobbi was found unconscious in a bathtub on Jan 31. She admitted in March that there’s not much hope for her recovery, and it sounds like Bobby giving people hope is making the situation even harder for her.
“It took her months of searching her soul and finding comfort in letting go of Bobbi after knowing there was nothing doctors could do,” our insider continues. “She’s finally in that place and Bobby is now saying she’s awake. Cissy can’t go through the ups and downs with this. Not again. She’s old and doesn’t have enough fight in her to go through one more emotional roller coaster.”
Poor Cissy. It sounds like she had finally come to terms with losing Bobbi, and Bobby is only getting people’s hopes up by saying she’s awake when we’re still not sure when Bobbi will make a full recovery, if at all.
After Bobby revealed at his April 18 concert in Grand Prairie, Texas that his daughter was “awake”, Bobbi’s aunt, Tina Brown, posted a statement on Facebook that Bobbi was off life support. However, she also stated that Bobbi’s recovery is still “a process.”
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Bobbi and her family during this difficult time.
