THERE IS CONFUSION as to whether or not Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of deceased music legend Whitney Houston, has awoken from a coma.

The 21-year-old was placed in a medically induced coma after being pulled unconscious from her bathtub in January. The circumstances of the incident were similar to the 2012 death of Houston.

On Saturday night, her father Bobby Brown told an audience that “Bobbi is awake. She’s watching me”.

This was followed up by a Facebook post from Brown’s sister Tina, who said that Bobbi was “no longer on life support”.

Doctors had reportedly told the family that there was little hope that she wake from the coma.

US celebrity gossip site TMZ this evening reported that the Houston family was adamant that nothing had changed and that there was still only the “occasional eye blink”.
