Bobbi Kristina Brown (March 4, 1993 – July 26, 2015)

was an American reality television and media personality, singer, and heiress. She was the daughter of singers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, and her parents' fame kept Bobbi Kristina in the public eye, including her appearances on the reality show Being Bobby Brown. Brown was 14 when her parents divorced and Houston gained custody.[1] When Houston died in February 2012, Brown was named as the sole beneficiary of her mother's estate.
That October, Brown caused controversy within both of her parents' families when she announced her engagement to Nick Gordon, a man she previously considered her "big brother". When the couple announced they were married, Bobby Brown's lawyer released a statement disputing the report.
Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31, 2015; she was kept in a medically induced coma prior to being moved into hospice care. She died on July 26, 2015, at age 22.
It appears not even death can bring Bobbi Kristina Brown's extended family together.
The Brown and Houston families paid their respects to the 22-year-old at her wake Friday night, but did so separately.
The families arrived at different times to the Murray Brothers Funeral Home in Atlanta, Ga. for the private wake, People reports.
The Houston family, including Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy, arrived at 6 p.m.

Bobby Brown, his wife Alicia, with whom he recently welcomed a daughter, and his sisters Tina and Leolah, waited in their their cars until the Houstons left before entering the funeral home.
Both families entered through a back entrance.
Bobbi Kristina's funeral and fortune have been sources of dissent for the Browns and Houstons.
In recent days, Leolah Brown took to Facebook to slam Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston's brother Gary, and is also the executor of the late singer's estate.
Leolah Brown accused Pat Houston of seeking financial gain from Bobbi Kristina's death.
A private, invitation-only funeral is scheduled for today at the Saint James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Ga. Bobbi Kristina's body will be flown to New Jersey to be buried next to her mother in Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, her family said earlier this week.
Bobbi Kristina died Sunday at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Ga., almost six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub. She had been at a rehab facility since March after being cared for previously at Emory University Hospital
