Playing Is Bobbi Kristina Brown Really Out of a Coma?

Bobby Brown shocked a concert audience in Dallas on Saturday when he claimed that his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was "awake" after being in a coma for nearly three months.

"I can say today, Bobbi is awake. She's watching me," Bobby said to a stunned crowd.

However, Bobby's remarks are now being clarified.

A source inside the family told ET that Bobbi Kristina is not awake and has not been responsive. Though the breathing tube has been removed, Bobbi Kristina, the source said, remains in a coma and nothing else has changed.

Bobby's lawyer Christopher Brown released a new statement on Monday, saying, "Bobbi Kristina's condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement. Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

Bobby's wife, Alicia Etheridge-Brown, also issued a statement explaining her husband's comments.

"My husband made an attempt to correct the negative comments he must endure on a daily basis from both family and the public regarding his daughter’s medical condition," she said. "He is encouraged by the steps that Bobbi Kristina has made since her hospitalization on January 31, 2015. She has made it out of ICU, opened her eyes, and started a rehabilitation that will be long and hard."

She added, "I just wish my husband could deal with this most painful and difficult time with people surrounding him who fully support and pray for Bobbi Kristina's recovery and only her recovery. Life is the most precious thing that we all have."

Bobby added a brief statement saying, "We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers."
