Bobby Brown and wife Alicia Etheredge have welcomed a new baby daughter to their family. Ethridge gave birth to the baby at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Saturday. This is Brown’s sixth child, and second with Etheredge whom he married in 2012. The couple’s first is five-year-old son Cassius, reports ET Online. The news is bittersweet, as Bobbi Kristina, Brown’s daughter with Whitney Houston, has remained in hospice care since mid-June. In January, the 22-year-old was found unconscious in her bathtub and put in a medically-induced coma.


Brown struggled through a July 4 performance in Atlanta last week, forgetting lyrics and telling fans he was in a “different zone.” Other members of Brown’s family have been banned from visiting Bobbi Kristina after news that a “deathbed photo” was being shopped around for more than $100,000. According to TMZ, hospice security claims a Brown family member took the pic. Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, wrote a long Facebook post defending her family, saying that the picture of her niece, “was taken when NO other Brown was around her.”

The headline, like the previous Jez one “Bobby Brown Performs, Forgets Lyrics, While Bobbi Kristina In Hospice” makes it seem as if he’s not supposed to be doing those things while she’s dying. There is a definite negative tone, as if the man is supposed to constantly be at her bedside on a death watch.

Those who have cared for a dying loved one know that however fraught or mundane the moments might be, a dying person is going to die on their own timeline. When my Dad was lingering, we took turns providing hospice at home, but meanwhile, life went on. We had to work, people were conceived or born or whatever. You can be a supportive person to your dying relative but at the same time, you can’t divorce yourself from the whole non-dying world, because it’s still spinning.

I don’t give two shits about Bobby Brown, but I’m starting to really resent the “Bobby Brown Does Such and Such While Bobbi Kristina In Hospice” headlines. If he commits suttee, would that be enough for Jezebel?
