UPDATE: Bobby Brown’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, released a statement Monday to clarify that “Bobbi Kristina’s condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement.”

“Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life,” Christopher said in the statement. “However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come.”

In the same press release, Bobby’s wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, added that her husband “made an attempt to correct the negative comments he must endure on a daily basis from both family and the public regarding his daughter’s medical condition.” “He is encouraged by the steps that Bobbi Kristina has made since her hospitalization on January 31, 2015,” she said. “She has made it out of the ICU, opened her eyes, and started a rehabilitation that will be long and hard.”

ORIGINAL STORY: Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was admitted to the hospital Jan. 31 after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub, but Bobby Brown told fans at a Saturday night concert that she’s now awake after being in a rumored months-long coma.

“I can say today, my baby’s awake,” Bobby said, according to a video obtained by TMZ. “She’s watching me.”

Bobbi Kristina’s family has mostly kept quiet on her condition, but issued a statement in early February to say that Bobbi Kristina was “fighting for her life.” 

Bobby Brown’s lawyer did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
