Cissy Houston is breaking her silence about the health of granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, who has been in a medically induced coma since January.

“She’s the same,” Houston told New York radio station WBLS in an interview posted online Wednesday. “They’ve moved her now to a place for rehabilitation and, you know, still not a great deal of hope.”

“I’m asking everybody, just pray to the lord, who we know can do something about it,” the mother of the late Whitney Houston said. “If he works a miracle, thank God. If it happens the other way, I’m alright.”

The 22-year-old daughter of Houston and Bobby Brown was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Georgia on Jan. 31.

After being rushed to the hospital, she was placed in a medically induced coma and attached to a ventilator. Brown has since undergone a tracheotomy and doctors began the process of bringing her out of her coma, but reversed course after she began suffering seizures.

She was moved from Emory University Hospital to a rehab facility last week.

As Bobbi Kristina fights for her life, her live-in boyfriend Nick Gordon has repeatedly complained on social media about being barred from visiting her bedside.

On Mar. 11, the “Dr. Phil” show aired a controversial interview-turned-intervention with Gordon, who admitted to alcohol and prescription drug abuse.

“I have been drinking, I have been doing Xanax, and that’s it. I’ve been sober besides that,” Gordon told Dr. Phil McGraw, who then played disturbing behind-the-scenes footage shot the evening before — that showed the 24-year-old slumped over and falling off of a chair. He appeared unable to walk or speak.

Near the conclusion of the sit-down, Gordon agreed to get help and check into Willing Way rehabilitation center, about three hours from Atlanta.
