Bobbi Kristina died at the age of 22 after she was found unconscious in a bathtub, spending six months in a medically induced coma before she tragically passed away. Her mother Whitney, who had long battled addiction, died just three years earlier after she too was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

At the time of Bobbi Kristina's passing, her father released a statement to Entertainment Tonight, writing: "Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honour her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."

"We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."
