Cissy Houston Reveals Granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Has Irreversible Brain Damage

Bobbi Kristina BrownThere's been a lot of conflicting information lately about Bobbi Kristina Brown, which all started with Bobby Brown declared at a concert that his daughter was "awake." That was followed by his sister, Tina, proclaiming on Facebook that Bobbi was no longer on life support and was "going to be okay." But now Cissy Houston, Bobbi's grandmother and Whitney's mom, is speaking out.

Cissy told People magazine:

I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive. Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me.

TMZ also reports that while Bobbi is off life support and breathing on her own, she is still unresponsive and essentially in the same condition. Another report says that she blinks her eyes occasionally.

I can see how Bobby Brown would have taken just this little bit of improvement and said "she's awake." In his mind, maybe she is. Maybe she is aware of what is happening around her, you never know. He probably chooses to treat the situation as if she does.

As for Tina, it's baffling why she would act like Bobbi was going to waltz out of the rehab clinic any minute now, but perhaps too her hopefulness got away with her.

TMZ also reports that it appears that the two sides of the family may have different ideas about how to handle Bobbi's long term future care. Let's hope the family is able to agree upon what to do.

Why do you think the family is saying different things?
