BOBBI Kristina Brown, the daughter of late music legend Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, has died, surrounded by her family, at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia.

She was 22.

"She is finally at peace in the arms of God," the Houston family said in statement to ET.

"We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub on January 31.

She was then taken to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia, where she was put on a ventilator to assist her breathing.

She was later placed in a medically induced coma at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital.

Nearly two months later, she was moved to a rehabilitation center, where she remained until June 24, when she was moved to the hospice center.

"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," Pat Houston told ET in a statement that day.

"We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."

Her maternal grandmother Cissy Houston previously admitted she had suffered "irreversible brain damage" and wasn't "progressing at all".

Her cousin, Jerod Brown, revealed this weekend that she had been lying in her hospice bed with a framed picture of her "guardian angel" Whitney by her side.

He claimed she was "full of life" and excited about her future just 72 hours before she was rushed to hospital from the home she shared with her boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, he opened up about Bobbi's state of mind shortly before the incident that left her in a coma. "She wanted to release her first single, to get on with her own music projects for her mum.

"Bobbi's mum was her guardian angel, and she wanted to make her proud. That was her mission."

But he also admitted that Bobbi had been masking her deeper pain.

He claimed: "She was very depressed. She would call me often and say she was dealing with her mum. She would say, 'She's heavy on my heart.'"

He also claimed that he would often help his cousin during times she was feeling suicidal and "talk her down from it".

Whitney Houston died in February 2012 after overdosing on prescription drugs and cocaine. She was found unresponsive in a bath tub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, the day before the Grammy Awards.

A coroner later ruled Houston died as a result of drowning and accidental overdose.
