Following the loss of her daughter in 2012, Cissy Houston is now dealing with another family tragedy as her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, remains in a coma after being found unconscious in a bathtub.
During a new interview, Houston family friend Smokey Robinson, 74, said the gospel singer, 81, is having a hard time coping with the state of her granddaughter's health.
"She's out of it," he said in a new interview. "She's really struggling with all of this."

Bobbi Kristina, 21, was placed in a medically induced coma on Saturday, Jan. 31 — just 11 days before the three-year anniversary of the death of her mother, Whitney Houston — after she was found unresponsive inside her Roswell, Ga. home.
