As hundreds of supporters turned out for a vigil in Riverdale, Ga., on Monday night for Bobbi Kristina Brown, Tina and Shayne Brown — sister and nephew to Bobby Brown — remain optimistic about her condition.
"She's progressing," Shayne tells ET's David Begnaud in an exclusive sit-down interview. "She's getting better. We just ask for people to continue to pray."
Bobbi Kristina -- the 21-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and the late music legend Whitney Houston -- was discovered face down in her bath tub on Jan. 31, and was rushed to a hospital in Rosewell, Ga., where she was put on a ventilator and placed into a medically induced coma. She was later transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
Though Tina and Shayne have been at the hospital since day one, they have backed off a bit to give Bobby his space with Bobbi Kristina.
"I’ve been home for a couple of days to let everything just die down," Tina says. "Bobby wanted to spend time with her by himself."
It has been a difficult time for the family, with emotions swirling and media scrutiny, and the tension culminated in a bloody brawl last Thursday night, which caused the stitches on Shayne's forehead. However, the mother and son say the family remains strong.
"At the end of the day though, the family is in good spirits," Shayne says. "Everybody's talking about the bickering and fighting that's going on between the family. At this time right now, we're just-- a lot of emotions are going on. We love each other."
Tina also takes responsibility for the fight. "I was upset, you know, I've been dealing with my niece and her being in the hospital. It was just a lot of emotions and I had a drink and I was frustrated and I was trying to make a point and I threw a glass. Unfortunately, it hit my son," she says.
"That situation was blown out of proportion," Shayne continues. "You see we're here right now. You know what I'm saying? I love her. She loves me. This is my mother. At the end of the day, family goes through things but -- just the family that we come from, it just happens to be publicized to the world."
