Bobby Brown plans special gathering for Bobbi Kristina's birthday

2015-03-05 14:02

Los Angeles - Bobby Brown has organised a special bedside vigil for Bobbi Kristina Brown's 22nd birthday.

The 46-year-old R&B star has invited several members of extended family to join him at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta in honour of the occasion, as his daughter continues to fight for her life after being found face down in her bathtub on 31 January.

A source said that while relatives of Bobbi Kristina's late mother Whitney Houston have been at the hospital every day, Bobby and his wife have been the only family members allowed access to the aspiring actress and singer's private room up until now.

The insider told gossip website that the My Prerogative hitmaker arranged for an exception to be made because he wants everyone to be together for his daughter's birthday.

Doctors attempted to bring Bobbi Kristina out of a medically-induced coma last week, but were forced to abandon their efforts after she reportedly started having seizures.

A source close to the family previously admitted: "This is a horrible setback. Everyone was hopeful that this was the sign that she'd turned the corner. We were so optimistic.

"Bobby is taking this so hard; he was sure this was going to be a good day. But please, everyone needs to pray for Krissi. I don't care what religion you are, or if you have no religion at all. Send your thoughts, your prayers, your well-wishes. Send everything you've got. Please."
