The site says outlets began reporting the news after her father, Bobby Brown, used the word “awake” to describe his daughter while on stage over the weekend. “There’s been a lot of confusion about what he meant, and Gossip Cop has exclusively learned the sad truth that Bobbi’s status is unchanged,” the site reported Monday.
During Brown’s Saturday gig in Texas, he emotionally told the crowd, “I can say today, Bobbi is awake. She’s watching me.” The audience cheered, and many outlets interpreted the performer’s remark to mean that Bobbi had emerged from the coma she’s been in since late January. Bobbi’s aunt Tina also fueled speculation, writing on Facebook, “[Bobbi] woke up and is no longer on life support!!!!!:):)God is good!!thanks for your prayers,,still a process,but she is going to be ok:):):):).”
But according to Gossip Cop, both Brown’s words and Tina’s post were not accurate. The site quotes a “source close to the family” who says, “Her condition has not changed since she was admitted to the hospital.”
The 22-year-old has been in a medically-induced coma and on life support for nearly three months since being found unresponsive in her bathtub in Georgia in January. Doctors tried to bring her out of the coma weeks later, but she began to have seizures and she was returned to a sedated state.
