Houston daughter in bathtub drama

The daughter of late singer and entertainer Whitney Houston was found unresponsive in a bathtub today and taken to a hospital, police said.

Bobbi Kristina Brown was found by her husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend and given cardiopulmonary resuscitation, said officer Lisa Holland, a spokeswoman for the Roswell Police Department in the north Atlanta suburbs in Georgia.

When police arrived, they gave Brown additional care until she was taken alive to North Fulton Hospital.

The incident remains under investigation, police said.

Brown is the only daughter of Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown.

Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel bathtub on February 11, 2012, in Beverly Hills, California. The 48-year-old Houston had struggled for years with cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her behaviour had become erratic.

Authorities examining Houston's death found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the hotel suite. They concluded that Houston accidentally drowned. Heart disease and cocaine use were listed as contributing factors in Houston's death.

Over her career, Houston sold more than 50 million records in the United States alone. Her voice, an ideal blend of power, grace and beauty, made classics out of songs like Saving All My Love For You, I Will Always Love You, 'The Greatest Love of All and I'm Every Woman. Her six Grammys were only a fraction of her many awards.

Houston had her first number one hit by the time she was 22, followed by a flurry of number one songs and multi-platinum records.

Houston left her entire estate to her daughter.
