Bobby Brown's lawyer has blasted reports suggesting the R&B veteran's family is shooting a reality TV show about his daughter Bobbi Kristina's ongoing health battle, insisting editors should be "ashamed to publish such nonsense" on the eve of her 22nd birthday. Sources told TMZ.com on Tuesday (03Mar15) the New Edition star's two sisters, brother and their kids are in the early stages of filming a show about their lives.
The series will reportedly include details about Bobbi Kristina's fight for her life as Whitney Houston's only child remains in a coma at an Atlanta, Georgia hospital following a near-drowning incident at her home on 31 January (15).
The insiders insisted My Prerogative singer Brown was not directly involved in the project, but that hasn't stopped his legal representative, Christopher Brown, from slamming any suggestion that his client approves of the reality show.
His statement reads: "Yet again, TMZ has chosen to engage in false news reporting. There is no Brown family reality show that is in production which chronicles Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina or the medical emergency she presently faces at Emory Hospital.
"These reports are irresponsible and Warner Brothers, as the owner of TMZ, should be ashamed to publish such nonsense, particularly one day before Bobbi Kristina's birthday.
"Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Brown are dealing with enough right now. The fact that TMZ/Warner Brothers has decided to inject negativity into their lives at this critical time is plain insanity."
Bobbi Kristina Brown turns 22 on Wednesday (04Mar15).
Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown remains in a medically-induced coma, despite reports suggesting doctors attempted to wake her up this week (beg23Feb15).
The 21 year old, the only daughter of Houston and New Edition star Bobby Brown, has been in the coma since 31 January (15), when she was rushed to a hospital in Georgia after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home. Reports suggested doctors had brought her out of the coma on Wednesday (25Feb15), but it has now emerged that medics instead tried to take her off certain medication to see if they could provoke a response from Brown, according to TMZ.com.
Reports vary regarding her reaction, with some publications stating she was unresponsive while others suggest she suffered seizures. Doctors are believed to have to put her back on the medication, and she reportedly remains in a coma and on life support with no change to her condition.
Doctors treating Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter Bobbi Kristina have brought the 21 year old out of the medically-induced coma she was placed in at the beginning of the month (Feb15). The aspiring actress was admitted to hospital in Georgia on 31 January (15) after her partner Nick Gordon found her face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at the home they share in Roswell, and she has been fighting for her life ever since.
Now reports suggest she's no longer in a coma, but remains on life support.
A family source tells People.com, "There will be a sign of hope, and then nothing. Every day, we wonder if this will be the day that we get good news... We're all hoping and praying that this will give us some answers.
"We're hoping for a significant change soon, but we know that it may not change anything."

Tina Brown, who is singer Bobby Brown's sister, was taken to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday (22Feb15), according to reports.

Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon has risked jeopardising his chances of visiting his hospitalised partner after publicising a series of nasty text messages exchanged with her father Bobby Brown, in which he accuses him of bad parenting. The New Edition star's daughter with Whitney Houston remains in a medically-induced coma in an Atlanta, Georgia hospital after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at the Roswell home she shares with Gordon in January (15).
Gordon claims he has been banned from seeing his girlfriend by the Brown family, but the singer's attorney insists the 22 year old has been invited to visit, as long as he agrees to "meet the terms" outlined by her concerned relatives.
Now Gordon has taken to Twitter.com to blast Bobby Brown by revealing a screenshot of a recent text exchange, in which he suggested Brown is in no position to decide what's best for Bobbi Kristina because he barely knows her.
The messages in the snap Gordon shared online on Monday (23Feb15) read: "Man to man I love your daughter... I don't know why you won't let me see her... Your daughter is going to hate you when she wakes up. It's not like you know her anyways (sic). What's her favorite color? What's her favorite smell, movies, food. You don't know."
The post has since been deleted from Gordon's Twitter page, but he continued ranting about the situation online, insisting Bobbi Kristina would want him by her bedside and claiming he is willing to agree to Brown's demands if he can see his girlfriend every day.
He writes, "I can't wait till she wakes up and dismiss (sic) all of the negative thoughts. There is a reason why her mom made me promise to look after her. If Bobby can guarantee me that I can see her 24/7 I'll meet the conditions".
He also revealed his "only regret" was not finding Bobbi Kristina sooner so he could try to resuscitate her.
He then continued to slam her relatives, claiming they have been sending him "death threats" to scare him away in a bid to lay claim to Houston's fortune, tweeting, "I have to remain strong for me and @REALbkBrown... Bobby seen his daughter 4 times in the last 5 yrs (years) Now him and his family want Whitneys $$$ (money) which belongs to Krissi or Cissy (Houston, Whitney's mother) (sic)."
And Gordon has dismissed rumours alleging he has refused to co-operate with police detectives, who have launched a criminal investigation into his girlfriend's near-drowning incident, adding, "I've talked to the cops (with) no lawyer. If Roswell Detectives know how to do there (sic) job everything is cool."
Bobbi Kristina Brown's partner Nick Gordon has accused her father Bobby Brown of turning down every opportunity for the pair to discuss hospital visitation. Bobbi Kristina, the 21-year-old daughter of Brown and late singer Whitney Houston, has been in a medically-induced coma in a Georgia hospital since she was found unresponsive in a bath tub in January (15).
Gordon claims he had been banned from seeing his partner by her family, but Brown's attorney fired back over the weekend (21-22Feb15), accusing Gordon of turning down opportunities to visit.
However, Gordon's lawyer has now continued the war of words, alleging Brown has made no attempt to meet Gordon to discuss the issue.
A statement released by Gordon's team, reads, "Bobby Brown has consistently prohibited Nick, who Bobbi Kristina would want by her side, from being there. Per his own words, Mr Brown has only 'offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina' if Nick were to meet certain conditions, conditions that we, his attorneys, have advised him not to meet, particularly in light of Mr Brown's inability to guarantee access... But in an effort to do all he can to visit, Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Mr. Brown privately to discuss his request in person, rather than through lawyers. Those offers have also been rejected. We hope Mr. Brown has a change of heart."
Gordon writes on Twitter.com, "I can't wait till she wakes up and dismiss all of the negative thoughts (sic). There is a reason why her mom made me promise to look after her... If Bobby can guarantee me that I can see her 24/7 I'll meet the conditions."
A further statement from Brown's attorney adds, "Due to Mr. Gordon's failure to place in tangible form his understanding of the events that lead to the hospitalisation of Bobbi Kristina, there is no reason for any additional discussion with him... It appears that Mr. Gordon did not want his understanding of the facts to be subject to the truthful examination of various experts or Bobby Brown himself... Mr. Gordon has every right to remain silent and not share his version of the events with Bobby Brown. We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to this investigation."
Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon turned down the chance to visit her in hospital, according to her father Bobby Brown's attorney. The 21-year-old daughter of New Edition star Brown and late singer Whitney Houston was found unresponsive in a bath tub at the Georgia home she shares with Gordon last month (Jan15) and has since been in a medically-induced coma in hospital.
Gordon recently went public with claims he has been banned from visiting his partner while she fights for her life, but Brown's lawyer has now dismissed his allegations, insisting Gordon turned down the chance to see Bobbi Kristina.
In a statement, Brown's attorney Christopher Brown writes, "To address the continued and never ending... requests for comment about Mr. Gordon's requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit...
"We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers."
Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has undergone a tracheotomy to prevent infections in her breathing tube. The 21 year old has been in a medically-induced coma following her hospitalisation on 31 January (15), when she was found unresponsive and face down in a bathtub at the Roswell, Georgia home she shares with her partner Nick Gordon.
She underwent the surgery on her windpipe on Wednesday (18Feb15), but her condition remains unchanged.
A family source tells People.com, "The tracheotomy is a different place for the tube to go. Everything else remains the same. It's a waiting game. The family is hoping and waiting.
"It's a normal procedure to have the tracheotomy because if you have a breathing tube down there for a long time, it can cause an infection."
The insider adds, "She is still critical and we don't know what the outcome will be. No one is giving up on this kid."
Brown's family members, including father Bobby Brown and grandmother Cissy Houston, have been holding a bedside vigil for the youngster ever since her hospitalisation.
The tracheotomy was performed two days after a lawyer for singer Bobby Brown dismissed "false" reports suggesting his daughter would be taken off life support this week (begs16Feb15).
Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon is "desperately" trying to visit Whitney Houston's daughter as she remains in a coma after her family reportedly asked him not to see her.

While Bobby Brown and the Houston family have stayed by Bobbi Kristina's side at Atlanta, Georgia's Emery University Hospital, Gordon has confirmed reports he has been barred from visiting his longtime love.
On Wednesday (18Feb15), a statement issued by Gordon's attorney Russell M. Kessler reads: "Nick has been trying, privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively. He has respected the family's wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation.
"But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted."
