Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved to hospice care Wednesday after spending months in the hospital, according to The Associated Press. On the same day, one of Brown’s conservators filed a lawsuit against the 22-year-old’s partner, Nick Gordon, accusing him of abuse and theft.

In a statement Wednesday, her aunt Pat Houston said the condition of Whitney Houston’s daughter had worsened. “Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” the statement read. “As of today, she has been moved into hospice care.”

Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta-area home Jan. 31. According to TMZ, Brown’s family consulted a brain specialist who told them she has “no hope” of emerging from her coma.

“We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now,” said the statement.

Brown is also the daughter of singer Bobby Brown. He and Pat Houston were appointed co-guardians of Brown.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday against Brown’s partner, Nick Gordon, accused him of being physically and emotionally abusive toward Brown, misrepresenting the nature of their relationship and taking money from her without authorization.

Bedilia Hargrove, a court-appointed conservator for Brown, sued Gordon in Fulton County Superior Court and is seeking at least $10 million in damages. Gordon is accused of assault, battery, infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion.

The complaint says after Brown was in a medically-induced coma, Gordon stole more than $11,000 from her bank account. Calls to Gordon’s attorney weren’t returned.

Whitney Houston was found unresponsive in hotel bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012 and died shortly after. Pat Houston, the musical icon’s sister-in-law and manager, was appointed administrator of the trust fund Whitney Houston set up for her daughter.
