Update: During the E! pre-Grammy red carpet show, it was reported that Bobbi Kristina Brown was released from Cedars Sinai. Her symptoms, according to E!, were attributed to a panic attack.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, has reportedly been hospitalized in the wake of her mother’s death.

Beverly Hills Police confirmed to the Post that an ambulance took Brown, 18, from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., where her mother’s body was discovered hours earlier, to nearby Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She was transported at 10:26 a.m. Pacific time for what were described as signs of anxiety.

Houston’s only daughter — herself an aspiring singer and actress — reportedly shared a close relationship with her mom and has been devastated by the sudden death.

It is not uncommon for the grief-stricken to have a strong physical response to their loss. A recent study by the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center indicated that the risk of heart attack and other health problems increases for the bereaved and that the potential for such issues to arise is higher during the immediate days and weeks following a loved one’s death.

Brown was reportedly at the Beverly Hilton when investigators responded to the scene of her mother’s death.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
