UPDATE: An earlier version of this post referred to Nick Gordon as Bobbi Kristina Brown's husband. According to a statement from Bobby Brown's lawyer on Feb. 3, the two have never been legally married.

PREVIOUSLY: Bobby Brown has released a statement to E! News following his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown's hospitalization on Saturday.

"Privacy is requested in this matter," the 45-year-old said in the statement. "Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time."

Bobbi Kristina Brown, Bobby Brown's fifth child and the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston, was found unresponsive in a bathtub by Nick Gordon and a friend in the couple's Roswell, Georgia, home.

Both police and a cousin of Brown confirmed to outlets later on Saturday that she was alive. Outlets including TMZ and CNN reported that sources close to the family said Brown was placed in a medically induced coma, but The Huffington Post was not able to verify these claims.

Bobby Brown's lawyer also released a statement regarding the 21-year-old's condition: "The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, is accurate," his lawyer said. "No additional information will be forthcoming."

Authorities are still investigating the circumstances that led Brown to become unresponsive.
