Oprah Winfrey was nearly brought to tears when informed Bobbi Kristina Brown is on life support and could soon be removed. The media icon was leaving Lucques in West Hollywood when she was met by paparazzi, one of whom asked for her thoughts on Brown’s medical crisis. Watch the video below.

“Do we know how she is right now?” asked Winfrey. When she was given (a somewhat convoluted) update on Brown’s dire status, the former talk show host took a long pause and seemed emotional, although she pointed out that Tyler Perry has been more involved with the family in recent years.

Winfrey said, “Tyler’s been really close to the family, Tyler was really supportive of [Brown’s mother] Whitney [Houston] when she had her troubles… and I know he’s been instrumental in trying to help Bobbi Kristina, too, but I hadn’t heard [how grave Brown’s condition is].” She added, “There aren’t any words right now,” later saying, “It’s a sad time. What a tragic thing.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, the 21-year-old Brown remains on life support in a Georgia hospital after being found unresponsive in her bath tub last weekend. Doctors have reportedly advised the family that little can be done for her at this point. We will have updates.
