Bobbi Kristina Brown's family are not ready to say goodbye, a Houston family source has claimed.

The aspiring actress has been in hospital since 31 January, when she was found unconscious in a bathtub by boyfriend Nick Gordon. The incident occurred at her home in Roswell, Georgia, shortly before the third anniversary of her mother Whitney Houston's death.

Despite being transported to a rehab facility in March after two months at Georgia's Emory University Hospital, the 22-year-old has showed little improvement.

Although things are looking bleak, her family members refuse to "pull the plug" and are still holding on to hope that she will make a full recovery.

"Bobbi Kristina remains completely unresponsive. She cannot communicate. The heartbreak and the pain we feel in seeing her that way is beyond words," says the source, before adding: "No one is trying to pull the plug. No one is saying goodbye."

It had been previously reported that there were plans to move Bobbi Kristina to the house she lived in with her late mother to "die peacefully".

"They are planning to keep her in Georgia and possibly bring her back to the townhouse," an insider told the Radar Online. "That was her home and her mother's home. If they can bring her back it would be great.

"If she's alive, then let her be home and surrounded by beautiful photos of her mother. It's as good as it gets in such a bad situation."

But her father, Bobby Brown, who was married to Houston for 14 years and is currently co-guardian of Bobbi Kristina's estate along with Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, was said to have been against the decision.

"He's never going to do that. I don't think he'll ever go there; if there's a 2% chance, a 1% chance, a 0.1% chance, he will keep hope alive," a source told People magazine.

Earlier in June, Brown's sister Leolah launched a scathing attack against Pat Houston. In her Facebook message, she claimed that Pat wanted Bobbi Kristina dead so that she can inherit the late singer's estate, which is estimated to be worth $20m (£12.63m). She also said that, contrary to reports, Bobbi Kristina's condition is improving.

"If Pat knew the God that I know, instead of trying to inherit my niece's money for her personal gain, she would mind her own business and go find A JOB for herself without continuously working so hard to destroy my niece, beg her for money and get angry when she cannot get it! She would stop using the Houston name for her personal agenda," she wrote.

"ONLY my brother Bobby Brown and my brother Tommy Brown who is Bobbi Kristina's father and uncle, has gotten Bobbi Kristina the best care possible and that she is indeed continuing to improve in-spite of the LIES being told."
