Bobbi Kristina, who was the only child of the late singer Whitney Houston and rapper Bobby Brown, passed away yesterday, some six months after she was found face down in a bathtub of water at her Atlanta, Georgia home.

At the time of her death, the 22-year-old was living with a man she referred to as her husband - Nick Gordon.

 

Mr Gordon is now being treated as a "person of interest" by police who are investigating her death.

Although six months have passed since Bobbi Christina was found in a critical condition in her home, law enforcement sources have told TMZ that they are now confident a post mortem examination will find a direct link between the incident and her death.
