Speculation that Bobbi Kristina Brown might be taken her off life support early Wednesday, the third anniversary of her mother Whitney Houston's death, was reaching a fever pitch Tuesday, even as Bobby Brown's nephew was saying his cousin was "getting better" and the singer's attorney was lashing out at false reports and noting that "God is hearing our prayers."

"Brown family sources" reportedly told TMZ on Tuesday that both sides -- the 21-year-old is the only child of the late Houston and Bobby Brown -- had agreed that Bobbi Kristina would not recover after being found unconscious in a bathtub at her home on Jan. 31 and should be taken off life support.


She's been hospitalized in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator since she was found.

However, a source "inside the hospital" told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the family still "has a decision to make."

And a "family source" told Gossip Cop that the report about letting the daughter go on the anniversary of her mother's death was "not true at all."

Hundreds of people attended a prayer vigil for Bobbi Kristina held Monday night just outside of Atlanta.

"We support the candlelight vigil for Bobbi Kristina," Bobby Brown's attorney Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen told the Los Angeles Times in a statement Tuesday. "The Brown family is amazed by the love and support from all that attended."

However, the lawyer continued, "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."

The lawyer did not respond immediately to a request from The Times to be more specific about which reports he was calling into question.

"This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence," he continued in the statement, after naming a handful of media outlets whose reporting was based on unnamed sources.

Police have not released further details about the circumstances under which Bobbi Kristina Brown was found, citing an ongoing investigation, the Associated Press said. Days ago, TMZ reported that there was an active criminal investigation going on related to the possibility of domestic violence between Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon (whom she called her husband but attorney Christopher Brown said last week was no such thing).

Gordon has not said anything publicly since Bobbi Kristina was found.

Back in the world of identified sources, Shayne Brown, Bobby Brown's nephew, said in a sit-down "Entertainment Tonight" interview posted online Tuesday, that Bobbi Kristina was "getting better. We just ask for people to continue to pray."

In that same interview, Tina Brown took responsibility for a family fight that erupted in a hotel last Thursday, which was her brother Bobby Brown's 46th birthday.

"I was upset, you know, I've been dealing with my niece and her being in the hospital," she said. "It was just a lot of emotions and I had a drink and I was frustrated and I was trying to make a point and I threw a glass. Unfortunately, it hit my son ."

Indeed, Shayne Brown had stitches visible on his forehead. Police were called to the scene, but no arrests were made.


Mother and son said they had "barely" paid attention to media coverage of the situation.
