Bobbi Kristina Brown “fighting for her life”
We’re learning more about what first responders found when they got to the home of Bobbi Kristina Brown, Saturday morning.
The 21-year-old, who is the daughter of singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home.
On Monday her family said Bobbi is “fighting for her life” and surrounded by loved ones in a hospital. The 911 call released Monday revealed that the 21-year-old was found unresponsive and face down in her bathtub just after 11 a.m.
Brown’s husband and a friend were the ones to find her and started CPR, but it’s unclear how long she spent without oxygen. Acousin tells NBC News that Bobbi is breathing with the help of a ventilator.
February 11th will be three years since Whitney Houston was found submerged in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel. She was later pronounced dead.
Judge revokes bail for Marion “Suge” Knight
The founder of Death Row Records, Marion “Suge” Knight, is being held without bail in Los Angeles on a murder charge.
A judge yanked knight’s bail Monday. The LA Sheriff’s Department said that a bail commissioner changed knight’s bail from $2 million to “no bail.”
Knight turned himself in Friday in connection with a fatal hit-and-run. His attorney says the rap mogul accidentally ran over and killed a friend and injured another man as he fled attackers on Thursday. Police say he ran them over on purpose and then left the scene.
Witnesses say Knight argued with two men at a burger restaurant in Compton on Thursday. The reasons for Knight’s change in bail include that he’s considered a flight risk and has a criminal past.
He is set to appear in court sometime Tuesday.
