Woman who posed as a nurse and gave Bobbi Kristina hospice care faces more charges

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

ATLANTA (AP) — Police say a woman accused of posing as a nurse and giving hospice care to Bobbi Kristina Brown faces identity fraud and other charges.

Roswell Police Department Officer Lisa Holland says Taiwo Sobamowo (soh-BAM’-ah-woh) has also been charged with forgery, theft by deception and practicing as a professional registered nurse without a license. Her former employer, Homestead Hospice, is based in Roswell 20 miles north of Atlanta.

Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, died July 26 at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia. Sobamowo’s employer contracted staff who worked at the hospice center.

Sobamowo was arrested in November and faces similar charges in Forsyth County and Duluth. She remained in jail on Friday. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.
