Despite somewhat encouraging news earlier this week, it looks like the end is near for Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown. A family member tells People that the family has been told by doctors that nothing more can be done for the 21-year-old, who was found unresponsive in a bathtub Saturday. "Everyone is coming to the hospital to say goodbye," the source said yesterday, adding that father Bobby Brown "has been crying nonstop since yesterday. We are grieving." A second family member confirms that it doesn't look good, but says, "It's sinking in that this is it, but we're all still praying that God will intervene and heal her body."

Other outlets have reported a similarly bleak prognosis: A source told Fox News yesterday that "it’s now a matter of when the family wants to let go and accept that she’s pretty much not going to make it. They’ve left it up to the family as to how long they want to keep her alive." And TMZ also says this situation looks "perilous," but adds that Bobby Brown is reportedly expecting a daughter with his wife.
