Report: Nick Gordon Checks Into Rehab
Yesterday, we told you about the explosive appearance that Nick Gordon recently made on “The Dr. Phil Show.” In case you missed it, the pre-recorded episode served as emergency intervention staged by Gordon’s birth mother, Michelle. Nick, however, was reportedly under the impression that it was just going to be a simple interview. During the episode, Nick not only opens up about the passing of Whitney Houston and the bathtub incident involving Bobbi Kristina Brown, but he also admits to substance abuse.
It has also been reported that Nick expressed during the episode that he would commit suicide if Bobbi Kristina doesn’t pull out of the coma she’s been in for the past month. If true, this would be the second time the 25-year-old publicly talked about taking his own life. Days ago, he made similar comments on Twitter.
Unsurprisingly, his mom says that he suffers from depression. According to TMZ, shortly after the taping of the episode, Nick checked into rehab. Its currently unclear what facility he’ll be receiving treatment at and how long he will be staying.
Though I initially felt that Nick’s Dr. Phil appearance would play out like a train wreck, perhaps some good can actually come out of this. Hopefully, he will stick with the rehab program long enough to receive the help that he needs.
The episode airs Wednesday, March 11.
