Click through above to see how Bobbi changed over the years.
As the daughter of pop superstar Whitney Houston and rapper Bobby Brown, young Bobbi was in the public eye right from the very beginning of her life. She was born on 4 March 1993 in Livingston, New Jersey.
Before she’d even turned a year old the little one made her stage debut, having been snapped in her mother’s arms during a 1993 appearance.
Bobbi continued to pop up at showbiz events over the years. In 1996 she joined Whitney at a New York film premiere and the pair even sported matching outfits.
Whitney and Bobby – who got hitched in 1992 – were always thought to have a tumultuous relationship, with rumours of drug use and various disputes surrounding their marriage. The family appeared happy when they posed for a photo in California in 2004 but Bobby and Whitney’s marriage ended in divorce three years later.
Bobbi remained in her mum’s custody, though dad Bobby was awarded visitation rights, and the youngster was frequently snapped out and about with Whitney during her teenage years.
Tragically on 11 February 2012 Whitney was found dead in a hotel bathtub aged 48 following an ‘accidental’ drug overdose, just hours before she was due to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party.
Unsurprisingly, Bobbi was said to be heartbroken and over time the aspiring musician reportedly faced several downhill spirals including dramatic weight loss and drug use.
She appeared to have found happiness when she settled down with boyfriend Nick Gordon in 2012, despite the fact that the relationship was controversial. Whitney had taken Nick in when he was 12, although she never formally adopted him, and Bobbi had even referred to him as her brother.
Bobbi frequently shared snaps with her man on social media and there were rumours that they’d got married.
Tragedy struck the family again though in January 2015 when Whitney’s girl was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub.
After several months in a medically induced coma, Bobbi’s family revealed that she’d been transferred to a hospice on 24 June 2015 due to her failing health.
‘Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,’ Bobbi’s aunt Pat said.
‘As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.’
Tragically Bobbi Kristina passed away on 26 July 2015. Her heartbroken family released a statement saying: ‘She is finally at peace in the arms of God.
‘We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.’
