Cissy Houston, the grandmother of Bobbi Kristina Brown and the mother of legendary singer Whitney, has spoken publicly for the first time about her granddaughter's condition, saying there isn't much hope
Cissy Houston, the grandmother of Bobbi Kristina Brown and the mum of legendary singer Whitney, has spoken publicly for the first time about her granddaughter's condition. She was giving the latest update on Bobbi – who has been in a coma for the past two months – during a radio interview.
When asked how Bobbi was doing, Cissy said: "She's the same. And you know, still not a great deal of hope."

The 81-year-old also reiterated that Bobbi had been moved to an Atlanta rehabilitation facility in March.

Speaking to New York station WBLS, Cissy added that while recovery seems unlikely, she has put her faith in God.
"We're praying," she said. "I give it to God one time, because I know he's able, and I cannot change a thing. So I'm asking everyone to pray to the Lord, who we know can do something about it. If he works a miracle, thank God. If it happens the other way, I'm all right."
Previous reports have claimed that the Brown family were divided on whether Bobbi should be moved from hospital to rehab, with her dad Bobby allegedly holding off the decision.

Bobbi was hospitalised in late January, after being found at home in her bathtub in an unresponsive state. While the family have not given many updates about the 22-year-old's condition, it is believed that Bobbi has been in a coma and on life support since her admission.
The Browns have been keen to dismiss claims that the singer's condition is deteriorating. Her aunt Leolah revealed last month that "her baby" had been opening her eyes.
"There are so many signs showing us that she will be okay," Leolah told Atlanta's Fox 5 TV station. "In spite of what people are saying over the internet, Krissi is fine. She's opening her eyes, and there's a few more things that she's doing, but Krissi is doing well right now. She is."
