Cissy Houston arrived Friday afternoon at Emory University Hospital, where Bobbi Kristina, 21, is being treated. She was initially rushed to North Fulton Hospital after being found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan 31.

Her former son-in-law Bobby Brown issued a statement through his lawyer early Thursday afternoon to dispute reports that family members were preparing to say goodbye to Bobbi Kristina.

Early Friday morning, Atlanta Police Department officers responded to a "dispute call" after Brown family members who'd gathered at the Midtown W hotel for a birthday celebration got into a fight.

Coincidentally, Tony and Grammy Award-winning singer Jennifer Holliday, known for her longtime starring role in the Broadway hit "Dreamgirls," expressed both sorrow and outrage at Bobbi Kristina's plight.

“Where are the grown people?” she demanded.


Just in time to answer that question, Cissy Houston arrived. Channel 2 got these photos:
