Bobbi Kristina's cousin plans global prayer tour to raise money for her care

Bobbi Kristina Brown's cousin Jerod Brown says he plans a global prayer tour to raise money for her care.

"I am gearing up for #‎PrayForBK Campaign tour here in the states and will continue overseas (USA, Dubai, Ghana, Asia, London, & Germany)," Brown announced on his public Facebook page. "We will be presenting my uncle Bobby a check to assist with the rehabilitation of Bobbi Kristina."

It's not clear how the planned tour would raise money.

In February, Jerod and Bobbi Kristina's companion Nick Gordon teamed up on a commemorative T-shirt project.

In March, Jerod released a commemorative video that he made in his cousin's honor.

Also in March, Jerod was arrested and charged with false representation to police and driving without a license, according to Atlanta Police Department records; there also was a Gwinnett County warrant stemming from charges of driving without a license and other traffic charges.

Jerod Brown posted this photo with the announcement of his global prayer tour.

Bobbi Kristina, 22, has been hospitalized since a Jan. 31 medical emergency. Anonymous sources cited by Radar Online have suggested relatives are considering bringing her home and are bracing for a final goodbye, but there have been no confirmations by anyone in her family.

Last month a DeKalb County judge named Bobbi Kristina's father, singer Bobby Brown, and her aunt, Pat Houston, as co-guardians, meaning they are jointly empowered to make decisions regarding her care. Atlanta lawyer Bedelia Hargrove was named conservator, meaning she "is responsible for Krissi’s assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims,” a statement issued at the time said.

Earlier this month Bobbi Kristina's aunt Leolah Brown said she had "continued to make progress," an optimistic update directly at odds with assessments Bobbi Kristina's grandmother Cissy Houston has given.
