Bobbi Kristina Brown is on a ventilator as she remains in a medically-induced coma one day after being found unconscious in the bathtub. And, according to one report, the outlook is bleak.

As Gossip Cop reported, Brown’s husband Nick Gordon and a friend found her face down in a tub in their Georgia home on Saturday. He performed CPR before paramedics took over, and Brown was rushed to North Fulton Hospital, where she has been in the intensive care unit.

According to TMZ, the situation did not improve overnight. Sources tell the site that doctors have determined Brown has “significantly diminished” brain function. That said, her condition is considered stable, and the medical team has not indicated that Brown’s family should give up hope.

What exactly happened on Saturday remains in dispute. As Gossip Cop reported, no drugs were found in Brown’s home when police executed a search warrant, but at least one outlet has claimed she overdosed. The incident comes nearly three years after Brown’s mother, Whitney Houston, drowned in a hotel bathtub the night before the Grammy Awards.

Since her hospitalization, Brown’s father, Bobby Brown, has flown from Los Angeles to be by her side, where members of Houston’s family have also gathered. In a statement released Sunday afternoon, he says, “Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.” A lawyer for the New Edition performer further notes that though Brown is still in the hospital, “no additional information will be forthcoming.” Gossip Cop will have updates.
