There’s nothing more doctors can do for Bobbi Kristina — and they’ve told Bobby Brown it’s time to withdraw life support … TMZ has learned.
Family sources tell us the decision is now in Brown’s hands — but we’re told he’s refusing to make the painful choice today, and instead wants to wait until after the weekend.
The timing could not have been worse. Today is Bobby Brown’s birthday.
We’re told Brown has been hopeful his daughter can beat the odds because someone in his extended family battled out of a coma after 8 days.
Bobbi Kristina was moved to Emory University Hospital Tuesday because the facility has a world class neurological department, but it appears doctors have determined there’s no hope.
Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically-induced coma since Saturday, when she was found face down in her bathtub.
11:45 AM PT — There are reports that Bobbi Kristina was taken off life support … but TMZ has been told by sources close to the family that these claims are absolutely false.
We are also told that Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother Cissy has still not seen her but plans are in place to get her to Emory University Hospital as soon as possible.
We could never imagine what it would be like to be forced to make the decision on whether or not to take a loved one off of life support. Being a parent forced with the decision to pull the plug on your own child must be even more difficult. It’s extremely heartbreaking and no one should ever have to go through that.
This morning, Twitter was abuzz with the unfortunate news that Kile Glover, son of Tameka Raymond and Ryan Glover, was removed from Life Support, 14 days after he was involved in a tragic jet ski accident that left him brain dead. Although Kile hadn’t shown any brain activity since the accident on July 9th, loved ones have been praying for a miracle in the last few weeks in hopes that he would soon recover. Unfortunately, today, celebrities who were close to the Raymond and Glover family, including Atlanta radio DJ’ Gregg Street and Frank Ski, sent out their condolences, confirming that Kyle was taken off of life support:
DJ GreggStreet: Lil RG is an angel now, Ryan, Tameka, Usher, and the whole Glover family we gotta make him proud.
FrankSki: Crying! I will miss you Kyle! Trying to be strong for my foundation trip today. Sometimes life is so unfair.
Kim Zolciak: Prayers to Tameka Raymond and family. NO mother should have to bury their child. Such a sad situation.
Valiesha Butterfield: Completely heartbroken. Fly angel fly. Our prayers are with the entire Glover family. Love you @TamekaRaymond.
This is such a tragedy. Condolences to the entire family during this very difficult time.

Our prayers continue to be with Usher Raymond’s ex-wife’s son Kyle who is still on life support. His insurance will likely expire soon, meaning doctor’s will be forced to take him off.
Check out what TMZ is reporting:
Usher’s ex-wife — Tameka Raymond — will be forced to take her 11-year-old son off life-support as early as next month, TMZ has learned, all because his insurance coverage is about to expire. Sources close to the family tell TMZ … Tameka has not lost hope that her son, Kyle Glover, can make a drastic recovery … despite doctors declaring him brain dead last week following a jet ski accident. We’re told she is telling friends … she still believes in miracles. According to our sources, Tameka can only keep Kyle on life-support as long as her insurance company agrees to pay … otherwise she doesn’t have the funds to cover the enormous hospital bills. We’re told the insurance company hasn’t set a specific deadline, but they’ve made it clear … they’re only willing to shell out coverage for a couple months … tops. Our sources say that Usher — who helped raise Kyle for several years — has been incredibly supportive in this difficult time… but has NOT offered to pay for any medical bills. We’re told Tameka does not see him as a viable financial option. As TMZ first reported, Kyle was struck in the head by a jet ski while inner tubing on Lake Lanier — doctors declared him brain dead days later.
