ATLANTA, Georgia-Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late pop singer Whitney Houston, and R&B singer Bobby Brown, died July 26 at a hospice facility in Atlanta, Georgia surrounded by family, including Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, and the younger Brown's father.


The 22-year-old aspiring singer, who friends say was still grieving the loss of her mother,  who died three years ago, was reportedly found face down in the bathtub by her boyfriend Nick Gordon, 30, and a friend in their Roswell, Georgia, home on Saturday morning, Jan 31. She never regained consciousness .

Gordon performed CPR before paramedics arrived. She was later transported her by ambulance to North Fulton Hospital, an Atlanta area hospital.

Police are still investigating, sources said.

Brown's funeral will be held Saturday, August 1 in Atlanta, and she will be buried next to her mother at the Fairview Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey, though arrangements are still pending.

She was the sole heir of Whitney Houston's $20 million fortune. and last year received $1.2 million shortly thereafter, the first of three installments from the trust fund her mother left her. She would have gotten 30 percent more at the age of 25 and the remainder of her inheritance upon turning 30.

Houston and Bobby Brown were divorced, and Houston's will is reportedly airtight with the remainder of the fortune, now at a reported $20 million to be spit between Houston mother Cissy and the Houston's two brothers, a clause applicable because  Bobbi Kristina had no children and was not married.

In town for a pre Grammy Awards party, Houston was found dead in her guest room at the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, California on Feb. 11, 2012. The official coroner's report says that the pop icon accidentally drowned in the bathtub, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as the causes of death. (www.clevelandurbannews.com) /(www.kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com
