Bobbi Kristina Brown was apparently photographed as she laid comatose during her final days at a Georgia hospice. The images surfaced today (Aug. 5) in the tabloid National Enquirer after reports claimed it paid $100,000 for the rights.

Brown, 22, died July 26 at the Peachtree Christian Hospice Center, where the photo appears to have been taken.

TheImproper broke the story Aug. 3 that The Enquirer would likely print the photos.

Initial reports, published by gossip site TMZ, claimed Bobbi Kristina was photographed in her coffin, just like her mother, who died in Feb. 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards.

Bobbi Kristina, however, was pictured in a hospital bed. The photo did not show any signs of life support equipment, suggesting it was taken at the hospice and not the hospital

She’d spent almost six months in an intensive care unit on life support after nearly drowning Jan. 31 in a bathtub at her home. Police are investigating the incident as a possible homicide.
