Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is fighting for her life after being found face down in her bath, her family have said.

Police were called to the aspiring singer's house in Georgia on January 31, which they said in a brief report was in response to the 21-year-old "drowning".

Now, according to the Daily Mirror her family have broken their silence with this statement: "Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family.

"As her father already stated, we are asking you to honour our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."

Bobbi Kristina, whose parents are RnB star Bobby Brown and the late singer Whitney, is now in hospital where the swelling on her brain has reduced and she is said to be able to move her eyes.

She was found face down and unresponsive in the bath at her home by her boyfriend Nick Gordon, 23, and a friend who the police have identified as her ex Max Lomas, 24.

Nick is reported to have given her CPR and Max apparently called for an ambulance.

Investigators are still looking into how she ended up underwater for what is thought to be between two and five minutes.
