Oprah Winfrey

Chokes Up over Bobbi Kristina

2/6/2015 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020615_oprah_launch_v2Oprah Winfrey was on the verge of tears as photogs told her that Bobbi Kristina will probably not make it.

The first photog got the facts wrong, but eventually Oprah got the gist ... that doctors have recommended Bobby Brown withdraw life support ... something he will not do, at least for now.

Oprah just stops as she hears the news, and you can see the emotion build.

She was coming out of Lucques in West Hollywood and spent a fair amount of time chatting with photogs. She also had an opinion about the timing as we come up on the 3rd anniversary of Whitney Houston's death.

11:45 AM PT -- There are reports that Bobbi Kristina was taken off life support ... but TMZ has been told by sources close to the family that these claims are absolutely false.

We are also told that Bobbi Kristina's grandmother Cissy has still not seen her but plans are in place to get her to Emory University Hospital as soon as possible.

update_grey_gray_bar

There's nothing more doctors can do for Bobbi Kristina -- and they've told Bobby Brown it's time to withdraw life support ... TMZ has learned.

Family sources tell us the decision is now in Brown's hands -- but we're told he's refusing to make the painful choice today, and instead wants to wait until after the weekend.  

The timing could not have been worse. Today is Bobby Brown's birthday.

We're told Brown has been hopeful his daughter can beat the odds because someone in his extended family battled out of a coma after 8 days. 

Bobbi Kristina was moved to Emory University Hospital Tuesday because the facility has a world class neurological department, but it appears doctors have determined there's no hope.

Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically-induced coma since Saturday, when she was found face down in her bathtub.

Suge Knight

Witness' Frantic 911 Call

'He Ran Over Two Guys'

2/5/2015 1:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Suge Knight 911 Call

Suge Knight has a new problem ... the woman who frantically called 911 seems to support the police theory that Suge intentionally ran over his victims.

The 911 caller is clearly unraveled as she describes what she saw last Thursday from start to finish. What's especially important ... she says Suge and one of the victims were fighting and then Suge "pull back and pushed forward and run him over."  

It's not crystal clear, but it seems she's saying Suge hit the guy intentionally.

Listen and decide for yourself.

There's lots of stress ... as we reported there's a feud brewing between Bobby's family and Whitney's. But we're told so far Alicia is handling it well.

Our sources say Suge has now been moved to Long Beach Memorial where doctors have put him on blood thinners ... but it's clearly a serious situation.

Suge won't be able to make a fast break ... he's been handcuffed to the bed and is under 24/7 watch.

Bobby Brown

Somber Walk

To Visit Bobbi Kristina

2/4/2015 10:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

A somber Bobby Brown showed up at Emory University Hospital Wednesday to visit his daughter Bobbi Kristina ... who is still in medical peril after Saturday's near drowning.

Bobby did not answer the photog's questions about his daughter's condition. As we reported, her signs improved earlier in the week -- Bobbi Kristina's brain swelling went down and her eyes are showing some movement. But doctors say they can't predict the outcome since she was without oxygen for somewhere between 2 and 5 minutes as she lay face down in her bathtub.

Bobbi Kristina was transferred to Emory Tuesday because the hospital is renowned for treating brain injuries.  

Bobby is also dealing with family drama. We're told he and his family are not getting along with Whitney Houston's relatives, and he also has beef with Nick Gordon.

Bobbi Kristina has been moved to another hospital to get the best neurological treatment available in the area ... TMZ has learned, and the move is not without bitter family drama.

Family sources tell TMZ ... Bobbi Kristina is at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA which is considered one of the top facilities for neurological problems. She was at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, GA near her home where she was found face down in a bathtub Saturday.

It looks like the move could intensify a brewing feud between the families of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. We're told the families are bickering over who gets access to the part of the hospital where Bobbi Kristina is receiving treatment.  

As one source put it, "The Houston family is sick of the Brown family acting up, as they always do."

Bobbi Kristina

Never Married Nick Gordon ...

According to Bobby Brown

2/3/2015 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Bobbi Kristina was never ever Mrs. Nick Gordon ... at least that's what her father Bobby Brown is claiming.

According to Bobby's attorney ... "Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon." For once, the Houston family agrees with Bobby Brown ... telling TMZ, Gordon and BK never officially wed.

Further, we're told by Houston family sources ... there are no legal documents that would allow Gordon to get any of the Whitney Houston fortune Bobbi Kristina inherited -- if she passes.

The fake marriage revelation flies in the face of several statements Bobbi Kristina and Nick both made on camera back in early 2014. 

 

Shortly after the alleged wedding ... Bobby was visibly shocked when we broke the news to him, and he doubted it was true.

In this case, Daddy did know best.

Suge was in the lockup area next to the courtroom when he began experiencing chest pains. But it appears it's not his heart ... it's his nerves.

This is the second time Knight has been taken to the hospital while in police custody -- he passed out in a jail cell last November as a result of a blood clot. 

Suge pled not guilty. If convicted Suge faces life in prison for the death of friend Terry Carter.
