Los Angeles: Bobbi Kristina Brown's organs have reportedly begun to shut down, but her father Bobby Brown wants to continue keeping her on life support.

21-year-old Bobbi Kristina, who has been hospitalised since she was discovered unresponsive in her bathtub at her Georgia home two weeks ago, is experiencing organ failure, TMZ reported.

According to family sources, because several of Bobbi Kristina's organs are shutting down, it does not matter if her father Bobby Brown withdraws life support.

At a candlelight vigil, Bobbi Kristina's aunt Tina Brown said that her niece's condition was "progressing" and that she was "getting better."

While she was said to have experienced an improvement in brain function at one point, her condition has since declined.

Due to his religious views, Brown has reportedly maintained that he will "do what it takes" to keep his daughter alive, even if that means if she remains on life support with little possibility of recovery.

The mysterious circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina's condition, including evidence that she had sustained facial injuries, have led police to open an investigation to determine whether foul play was involved, with the probe centering on her longtime love interest Nick Gordon.

Bobbi Kristina's mother, the late singer Whitney Houston, passed away three years ago this week, when she was discovered unconscious in a bathtub in her Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11, 2012. 

The coroner listed heart disease and cocaine as contributing factors to her death.
