Bobbi Kristina Brown continues to fight for her life in an Atlanta hospital, and while her situation remains critical, family sources have denied reports that emerged over the weekend that her "organs are shutting down". "There hasn't been a change in the past week," an unnamed family member confirmed to People magazine. "Nothing at all. It's not like her kidneys are shutting down or anything. There hasn't been any change."

A family member denied reports Bobbi Kristina's condition has deteriorated

Bobbi Kristina was rushed to hospital on 31 January after she was discovered, unresponsive, in her bathtub. Her family, including father Bobby Brown and grandmother Cissy Houston, have maintained a constant vigil by her bedside ever since. Understandably, the situation is starting to take its toll on the 21-year-old’s loved ones. "I think we're all getting on each other's nerves," the insider admitted. "Everyone's under a lot of stress. Bobby doesn't want any part of the drama; he's there for Krissi, not for us." One person who hasn't been allowed to visit Bobbi Kristina in the hospital is her boyfriend Nick Gordon, and according to the source her father won't even mention his name. "We don't talk about him," the family source revealed. "Bobby doesn't mention him at all, ever. We're trying to give positive energy around Krissi, and Nick is not positive energy."

Bobbi Kristina Brown with boyfriend Nick Gordon

Nick has long had tensions with members of the family. Last week he issued a statement dismissing widespread speculation that he will be taking legal action to be allowed to see Bobbi Kristina. "In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like to make it clear, he is not," a statement released through his attorneys read. "Mr Gordon's only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina. He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon." Nick was largely raised by Whitney Houston and grew up alongside Bobbi Kristina, although he was never formally adopted. The couple took their romance public following Whitney’s death in February 2012, sparking concern among her loved ones. Earlier this month, father Bobby issued a statement saying that Bobbi Kristina and Nick were not married – as they had led people to believe last year.
