Bobbi Kristina Brown , the daughter of Whitney Houston and R&B singer
Bobby Brown, died on Sunday — six months
after being found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Ga.
She was 22.

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

Brown had been hospitalized and in a rehab center since Jan. 31. She
underwent surgery to replace her breathing tube with
a tracheostomy tube in February.

She was rushed to the hospital in late January after her partner, Nick
Gordon, found her face down in the tub and called
911. She was then placed in a medically induced coma and never
regained consciousness.

Her mother, singer Whitney Houston, was found dead in a bathtub the
day before the
Grammy awards on Feb. 11, 2012, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Houston
suffered a heart attack complicated by the use
of cocaine, with which she had struggled for many years. Bobby Brown
was addicted to cocaine, crack and heroin at various times and had
several run-ins
with the law as well as recent DUIs.

Brown and her parents' tumultuous life were chronicled on two reality
series. "Being Bobby Brown" ran on Bravo in

"The duo — occasionally joined by their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who
appears unscarred by that gawkward 1999
'Divas' concert, during which her mother flamboyantly serenaded her —
seem, for all their idiosyncrasies, quite
genuine. With the singers
smoking and tippling and
making really bad jokes, theirs
is not the tidiest of portraits,
but it feels like an honest one,"
wrote Gillian Flynn of "Being
Bobby Brown" in Entertainment

Lifetime's "The Houstons: On Our Own," which ran for one season
starting in 2012,
chronicled Bobbi Kristina Brown's attempts to move forward after her
mother's death and to launch her own
singing career. The show was criticized for being intrusive and
exploiting a family's grief.

Her parents divorced when she was 14, and Bobbi Kristina Brown
inherited her mother's estate. Gordon had lived with
the Houston family since age 12, and Brown had said they were married,
although the family said the marriage was
not formalized. Though Brown
had earlier called him her brother, she responded to critics of the relationship
explaining that he was never officially adopted by Houston.

In addition to her Gordon, survivors include her father, Bobby Brown's
two children from an earlier relationship, her
grandmother Cissy and her aunt and uncle Pat and Gary Houston.
