Brown, 22, was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta area home on Jan. 31. She underwent surgery to replace her breathing tube with a tracheotomy tube in February.

The statement added the Houston family thanks "everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."

Brown is also the daughter of singer Bobby Brown. He, along with Pat Houston, were appointed co-guardians of Brown last month.

Whitney Houston was found unresponsive in a bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012, and later died. Pat Houston, the musical icon's sister-in-law and manager, was appointed administrator of the trust fund Whitney Houston set up for her daughter.
