The Associated Press is reporting that police officers were called to the home of Bobbi Kristina Brown for a domestic dispute just a week before she was found face down in the bathtub of her Georgia home.
A 911 call reveals one of Brown’s neighbors reported the domestic dispute on Jan. 23.
In the call, a man who identified himself as a security guard at the gated community where Brown lives told a dispatcher that one of Brown’s neighbors reported a fight at Brown’s address.
The guard said the neighbor reported people “hitting each other and swinging” outside the townhome. The guard did not give descriptions of how many people were fighting or who they were. The Associated Press requested a copy of the police report and 911 recording but the materials were not provided.
It is unclear if the 21-year-old was involved in the dispute. Brown, who is the only child of late singer Whitney Houston and R&B artist Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive on Jan. 31 by a friend and her alleged husband, Nick Gordon. Despite reports that family members plan to take her off life support on the anniversary of her mother’s death, the Brown family released a statement Tuesday blasting the media for “egregious and false” stories.
“We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended. 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.” Brown added.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing. The AP has not been able to independently confirm the investigation is a criminal one, although local news outlets have reported it as such.
Three years ago today (Feb. 11), Whitney Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel — an eerie parallel to the incident that led to her daughter’s current hospitalization. Authorities concluded Houston accidentally drowned and listed heart disease and cocaine as contributors.
