Stars pray for daughter of Houston

ATLANTA - Celebrities are offering their support and prayers for Whitney Houston’s daughter, who authorities say was recently found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in a suburban Atlanta townhome.

Police said 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown was taken Saturday to a hospital in the northern Atlanta suburb of Roswell, Georgia.

La Toya Jackson is one of several celebrities who used Twitter to express her support Sunday.

“Let’s All Send Love Light & Prayers to Bobbi Kristina Brown!’’ Jackson tweeted. “Wishing Her A Healthy & Speedy Recovery!’’

Singer-songwriter Missy Elliott said on Twitter that she’s also throwing her support behind Brown. “Still Praying 4 Bobbi Kristina,’’ Elliott tweeted in part.

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

Lindsey Harber, a spokeswoman at North Fulton Hospital, where police say Houston’s daughter was taken, declined comment.

“I can’t confirm she’s even there,’’ Harber said Sunday.

Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, along with a friend, found the woman in a bathtub on Saturday, Roswell police said in a statement. The friend called the emergency dispatcher while Brown’s husband performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the woman because they did not believe she was breathing nor had a pulse, said Officer Lisa Holland, a Roswell Police Department spokeswoman.

Police gave Brown additional care before she was taken to the hospital, Holland said.

The townhome is in a subdivision near a bend in the Chattahoochee River, about 20 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.

Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012, in Beverly Hills, California. The 48-year-old Houston had struggled for years with cocaine, marijuana and pills. Authorities examining Houston’s death found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the hotel suite. AP
