Singer Bobby Brown took media outlets and gossip tabloids to task for false and deceptive reporting on the status of his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Brown called out gossip tabloid TMZ and British newspaper tabloid Daily Mail as the worst offenders in the spread of false gossip and innuendos about his daughter's condition.
Whitney Houston's only child was found floating face down in a bathtub at her Roswell home 2 weeks ago. SHe was unresponsive -- meaning no heartbeat and not breathing -- when emergency responders arrived on the scene.
Brown released a statement today through his attorney, accusing TMZ and other media outlets of spreading false information in a race to be the "first".
In particular, TMZ reported falsely that, the Brown and Houston families decided to take Bobbi K. off the ventilator on Feb. 11 -- the 3rd year anniversary of singer Whitney Houston's drowning death in a hotel bathtub. Incredibly, other media outlets ran with the story as if it were fact.
"The false reports that continue to appear in print and on the internet are egregious, false and will be dealt with at an appropriate time," the statement read.
Bobby added: "In particular, the false reporting of TMZ, The National Enquirer, The Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Daily Mail (UK) citing, police sources, family sources and Bobby Brown himself, will receive my attention. The desire to be 'first' has clouded the judgment of many reporters as they forgo accuracy. This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.”
Brown asked for privacy and he thanked everyone who attended last night's vigil for Bobbi Kristina in Riverdale, GA.
"God is hearing our prayers," he said.
