A friend of Bobbi Kristina Brown said police have questioned Brown’s boyfriend about bruises on the young woman’s chest after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub January 31.

Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston, remains in a medically induced coma in a neuro intensive care Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.

Monday night, friend Daphne Barak said that Nick Gordon, Brown’s boyfriend, told her that the bruises were a result of him performing CPR on her.

Gordon could not be reached for comment.

The investigation is focusing on everyone who was in the house the night before the incident and on people who had contact with Gordon, according to a source with knowledge of the probe.

Police are exploring all avenues to find out how and why Brown ended up facedown in her bathtub with unexplained injuries to her body, the source said.

“Immediately, from the beginning, they asked him about injuries to the chest,” Barak told HLN’s Nancy Grace, adding that Brown is “very tiny.”

Barak has been in close contact with the couple for more than a year, she said, adding that she believes Gordon and Brown were very much in love.

“These two young people — he was everything for her, she was everything for him… they really were everything to each other …,” Barak said.

Last week, a source close to the Brown family told CNN that Brown has injuries that need to be explained, but there have been no details disclosed publicly about the nature of those alleged injuries.

“I’m praying for her,” Barak said.
