Five months after she was discovered unresponsive in her bathtub, Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to hospice care.

The daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston was found face-down in a tub in her Atlanta home on Jan. 31, almost three years after her mother’s body was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Now, though, Brown is being moved once more — and the prognosis doesn’t look good

“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” Brown’s aunt, Pat Houston, said in a statement on behalf of the Houston family on Wednesday. “As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.” Read more…
