Los Angeles: Singer Bobbi Kristina Brown's father has questioned her cousin Jerod's statements about her ill health in public, calling him an "unauthorised member" of the family.
The 21-year-old daughter of late Whitney Houston has been under doctors' care since January 31, when she was found lying unconscious in a bahttub at her home, reported Us magazine.
While the rest of the family members have sought privacy on her health, Jerod has been quite open about it.
Kristina's father Bobbi released a statement through his lawyer, saying, "At this time it is requested that the media cease speaking with unauthorised members of the family. The integrity of the events that led to the hospitalisation of Bobbi Kristina must remain uncompromised.
"...Various members of the family have provided media interviews, however, none of them are approved visitors to see Bobbi Kristina. None of them have firsthand knowledge of Bobbi Kristina's treatment and the medical staff at Emory University Hospital has not communicated with them."
Mentioning Jerod in his statement, Bobby said people should not attend any praying meet organised by him.
"In particular, Jerod Brown aka Jerod Carter aka YF Kennedy, continues to makes statements and appear on television, however, he has not had any communication with Bobby Brown or the Houston family.
"He must be disregarded. Please do not attend any 'meet and greet' organised by Jerod Brown as he is unable to provide access to Bobbi Kristina or information on her condition. This is a criminal investigation and we do not need this side show," he said.
This statement comes a few days after Bobby's lawyer issued one slamming a few media publications for alleged false reporting on Kristina's case.
