Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has ‘irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive,’ according to her grandmother – despite Bobby Brown claiming she was awake at the weekend.

The 22-year-old was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Saturday 31 January after reportedly spending between two and five minutes facedown under water.

Bobbi was placed in a medically induced coma in early February and has been unresponsive ever since.

Now Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy Houston - the mother of the young star's late mother Whitney Houston – says she's suffered irreversible brain damage.

‘I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive,’ Cissy said in a statement.

She claims only a "miracle" will improve her granddaughter's condition and appeals for fans to pray for her family.

‘Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a life time truly saddens me,’ she adds. ‘We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers.’

Cissy’s comments come after father Bobby Brown said that she was awake in a concert on Saturday, ‘I can say today, Bobbi is awake," Brown told the audience at Dallas' Verizon Theatre. 'She's watching me.’

Bobbi’s aunt Tina Brown also seemed to confirm on Facebook that she was no longer on life support saying:

‘Yes, she woke up and is no longer on life support!!!!!:):)’ Bobby's sister wrote. ‘God is good!!thanks for your prayers, still a process, but she is going to be ok:):):):).’

Bobbi’s sad circumstances have scary echoes of her mother Whitney Houston who was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11 2012 - a coroner ruled her death was caused by accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine as contributing factors. Bobbi was found in the bath just days before the three year anniversary of her mother’s death.
