Bobbi Kristina Brown's father and aunt have been appointed co-guardians of the ailing daughter of singer Whitney Houston.

Lawyers for Bobby Brown and Pat Houston issued a joint statement saying Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh appointed them to have joint responsibility in decisions related to Bobbi Kristina's care and medical needs.

The statement also says lawyer Bedelia Hargrove was appointed conservator to oversee Bobbi Kristina's assets, including her rights and legal claims.

The decision comes after Ms Brown, 22, was found face down and unresponsive in the bath at her Georgia home on January 31, nearly three years after Houston, 48, was found dead under bath water at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Bobbi Kristina has been moved to an undisclosed location since being released from a hospital in March.

Her lawyer Christopher Brown said in April that Bobbi Kristina had opened her eyes.
