Bobby Brown's lawyer: Bobbi Kristina Brown has opened eyes

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) — Bobby Brown's lawyer issued a statement Monday saying the singer's daughter has "opened her eyes" nearly three months after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home.

Attorney Christopher Brown said he issued the statement to clarify comments the singer made during a concert over the weekend about his daughter's condition. The statement goes on to say that "there has been improvement" in her condition.

However, it also adds that Bobbi Kristina Brown is just now beginning rehabilitation "and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

Bobbi Kristina Brown is the only child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston.

Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in about a foot of water in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel room Feb. 11, 2012, just before the Grammys. She later died, and authorities concluded she had accidentally drowned. Investigators found a dozen prescription-drug bottles in the suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors to her death.

On Saturday night, an emotional Bobby Brown told concertgoers that Bobbi Kristina was "awake" and "she is watching me."

Bobby Brown's wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, added in the statement that during the concert, Brown "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," Etheredge-Brown said. "She has made it out of ICU, opened her eyes, and started a rehabilitation that will be long and hard."
