Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died on 26 July, over five months after being found unresponsive in her Georgia home.

"Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous among of love and support during these last few months," her aunt Pat Houston said.

Brown was found in her bath tub at her Roswell, Georgia home by her partner Nick Gordon and a friend Max Lomas on 31 January. She was first taken to a local hospital before being moved to the Neurology Intensive Care Unit of Emory University Hospital. In March, Brown was moved to a rehab centre.

When her condition worsened in late June, her aunt announced she had been moved to hospice care.

"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," she said in a statement. "She has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She's in God's hands now."

Rumours of Brown's passing had been circulating for the past few days. On 25 July, her cousin Jerod Brown tweeted a cryptic message, which many took to mean that the family would be updating about her condition soon.

As previously reported by IBTimes UK, Brown's family was reportedly emptying out her townhouse as the family prepared to say their goodbyes.

A neighbour told People: "The Houstons brought moving vans and filled up an entire dumpster with trash about two months ago. I was concerned about her little dogs, so I went over to inquire. The Houstons assured me they were being loved and well taken care of."

According to ABC News, Brown was discovered unconscious nearly the same way her mother, legendary singer Whitney Houston was found three years prior. Houston was found unresponsive in a tub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California right before the Grammy Awards on 11 February 2012. She was 48-years-old.
