Despite her having been in a coma for the past seven months, the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown comes as a shock and tragic loss to the world…

In a sad and ironic twist of fate, 22-year-old Bobbi was found unconscious in a bathtub earlier this year, in a manner reminiscent of the way her famous mother, Whitney Houston, died just three years ago.

She lived a similar life to her troubled mother – thrust into the spotlight at a young age, experimenting with drugs and alcohol, involvement in toxic relationships, and erratic behaviour in her final days.

Like mother, like daughter? Take a look back at the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown in pictures…
