Whitney Houston's daughter rushed to hospital

Bobbi Kristina Brown and Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston’s teenage daughter was taken by paramedics from the Beverly Hilton Hotel to a nearby hospital Sunday morning, less than a day after her mother was found dead at the same hotel, Beverly Hills police said.

Bobbi Kristina Brown was taken on a gurney in an ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center shortly after 10 a.m., police said. They declined to specify the reason for the medical assistance or to comment on media reports that the young woman, whose age has been variously reported as 18 or 19, had collapsed.
