Bobbi Kristina Brown: Grandma Cissy Houston at hospital; cousin urges prayer

Cissy Houston arrives at hospital where granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has been comatose since Saturday

Bobbi Kristina Brown's grandmother Cissy Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston, arrived Friday at the Atlanta hospital where the 21-year-old has been on life support since being found unconscious last Saturday.

"Everyone is coming to the hospital to say goodbye," a family member told People on Thursday, adding that dad Bobby Brown had been "crying nonstop" since Wednesday.

Meanwhile, cousin Jerod Brown asked for continued prayers in a Thursday post on Facebook.

"Though it seems the odds are against her, though doctors don't see any hope for change, though we might want to play detective and find out how she got there, though it looks impossible for her to stand again STILL PRAY FOR BK #StillPrayForBK Campaign starts NOW!," he wrote, referring to his relative as "Bobbi Kristina Houston'Gordon."

Bobby Brown was reportedly still reluctant to remove life support as of late Thursday, according to TMZ, despite doctors having told the family they've done all they can.

Further complicating things, police were called Thursday night to the W Midtown Atlanta Hotel in response to an alleged brawl involving a few of his family members after a birthday dinner for the singer, WXIA-TV reported.

Also, coincidentally, word emerged that Bobby Brown's manager-wife Alicia Etheredge is four months pregnant with what will be their second child together and Brown's sixth child in all.

"It's been heartbreaking to see the Houston family in such pain again," music producer Clive Davis told Billboard while gearing up for his annual pre-Grammys bash. Davis is Bobbi's godfather. The third anniversary of Whitney Houston's death -- which happened the day of Davis' party in 2012, in the same hotel where the party is held -- is Wednesday.

Bobbi Kristina's partner, Nick Gordon, and a friend, Max Lomas, found her unconscious in a bathtub Saturday. On Tuesday, Bobby Brown's lawyer said that the couple, both raised by Whitney Houston, had never legally married despite an announcement in January 2014 that they'd wed.

Lomas' lawyer told E! News on Thursday that her client was the one who found Bobbi Kristina unconscious after he knocked on a bathroom door and didn't get a response. "[H]e called for Nick, screamed for Nick, and then he immediately called 911," attorney Ashleigh Merchant said, noting that Gordon had been showing a cable TV technician around the house at the time.

Atlanta's WBS-TV had video of Cissy Hoston's arrival at Emory University Hospital.
