[Editor's note: This story has been updated to reflect a statement issued by the Brown family on Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 10).]
Following a candlelight vigil by family and fans on Monday night in Atlanta, relatives of Bobbi Kristina Brown are reportedly planning to discontinue life support for the 21-year-old daughter of singer Bobby Brown and late pop icon Whitney Houston.
TMZ reported on Tuesday (Feb. 10) that after more than a week in a medically induced coma, Bobbi Kristina is slated to be taken off life support on Wednesday, the third anniversary of the drowning death of her mother. Like Houston, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the family blasted what it called the "egregious, false" reports about Bobbi Kristina without specifically referring to any particular stories.
"We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended," Bobby Brown's lawyer, Christopher Brown said according to Billboard. "However the false reports that continue to appear in print and on the internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time. In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Daily Mail (UK) citing, police sources, family sources and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be 'first' has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence."
Bobbi remains in the coma at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital and the source reportedly told US, that there is "no truth to [the Page Six story] at a all." Houston was found dead at age 48 in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11, 2012, on the eve of that year's Grammy Awards.
With little hope that Bobbi Kristina can recover, a source close to Houston's family reportedly told TMZ that Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, had agreed with Bobby Brown on the plan to remove life support on the grim anniversary. Spokespeople for Brown and Houston could not be reached by MTV News for comment at press time.
CNN is also reporting that police have focused on Bobbi Kristina's live-in partner, Nick Gordon, in the investigation into her death in an effort to determine how she ended up facedown in a bathtub. Another unnamed source close to the family also told CNN that the aspiring singer sustained injuries before her death that have not yet been explained.
Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the tub full of water in her Atlanta home on January 31, when Gordon and a friend are said to have found her, called 911 and performed CPR until an emergency crew arrived.
