Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly not being taken off life support after all, Bobby Brown releases new statement

Bobbi Kristina Brown will apparently not be taken off life support at the stroke of midnight on Wednesday after all.
An unidentified source close to the Brown family told E! News there's no truth to reports that Bobbi Kristina, 21, will be taken off life support on the third anniversary of her mother Whitney Houston's February 11 death.
In addition, Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown released a statement blasting other inaccurate reports in circulation regarding his daughter's condition and alleged family struggles.
"We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina. The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended," Brown's attorney Christopher Brown told E! News of the Monday night prayerful gathering in Georgia.
"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 U.K.'s Daily Mail 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."
Bobbi Kristina remains hospitalized and on life support 10 days after she was found face down and unresponsive in her home's bathtub. She was found by her friend Max Lomas and then her longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon attempted to revive her before she was rushed to the hospital.
As the investigation continues, additional details have surfaced that lead officials to question whether Bobbi Kristina had been a victim of foul play prior to the bathtub incident. Gordon has a history of domestic violence and drugs were found in the home. Also, according to CNN, Bobbi Kristina was discovered with injuries to her face, including her mouth.
"This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence," Christopher Brown continued in the statement on behalf of his client. "We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supported the vigil for Bobbi Kristina. God is hearing our prayers."
Last week, a family insider told E! News that Bobbi Kristina "is not brain dead, and the Houstons and the Browns are not fighting."
After Whitney's death, Bobbi Kristina, Gordon and several other family members starred on The Houstons: On Our Own, a reality series which aired on Lifetime in 2012.
