Celebrities sent their condolences to the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown, which is dealing with its second tragedy in recent years. Her mother, songstress Whitney Houston, died in 2012.
Brown died Sunday at the age of 22. She had been in a coma for about six months after being found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in January.
She died "surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God," Kristen Foster, a representative for the Houston family said Sunday.
