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.
I'm so hurt I wanna do myself in, I know I have to strong

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.

It looks like the rumors were true. Earlier today, CBS confirmed reports that Nick Gordon will be appearing on a special episode of “Dr. Phil.” The news was officially announced in a press release sent out by the network.
The episode will apparently serve as an intervention for a “distraught and out of control” Nick, who will be joined by his mother, Michelle. During the sit down where Phil will attempt to provide the treatment Nick “appears to so desperately need,” the troubled 20-something will open up about his struggles with drugs and alcohol.
Michelle will also reveal that Nick has been struggling with guilt since Whitney’s passing.
“As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance,” she tells Phil in a clip, according to Us Weekly. “When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, ‘Mom, why couldn’t I do it? I couldn’t get air into her lungs.'”
“He won’t let go of the guilt,” she continued.
The emotional episode is set to air Wednesday, March 11.

According to TMZ, Nick Gordon will sit down for an interview with Dr. Phil to finally divulge information on what happened the day he found Bobbi Kristina facedown in her bathtub.
As the story goes, the TV psychologist is meeting up with Gordon in the next few days to set up a formal interview. Not only will Gordon talk about that fateful and frightening day, but he will also reportedly discuss his issues with Bobby Brown and the Brown family, and their decision to keep him from Bobbi Kristina during this harrowing time.
Interesting enough though, Gordon has avoided speaking with police as of late about the goings-on of the day Bobbi Kristina was found, and what took place before she got in the tub. So it’s interesting that he would want to be so open with Dr. Phil when the things he says in their chat could be used against him (unless he pleads the fifth the entire time, and in that case, he might as well sit down somewhere). But then again, Gordon has been behaving odder than usual as of late. From calling out Bobby Brown and his parenting skills to telling his followers he has contemplated suicide recently (“I’m so hurt I wanna do myself in, I know I have to [sic] strong”), he has been letting it all hang out online. So with that in mind, letting it all hang out on TV really isn’t that surprising. However, it’s not a good look for a man who wants everyone to believe he genuinely cares for Bobbi Kristina.
Nick Gordon Goes From Pleading To See Bobbi Kristina To Attacking Bobby Brown On Twitter: “Dude Is A Joke”
We told you over the weekend that Nick Gordon was claiming that he had been prohibited from seeing Bobbi Kristina at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. He took to Twitter to plead for the chance to visit with her. In fact, he said that being able to talk to and touch Bobbi Kristina could make all the difference.
“Let me in the hospital to see my girl and let her hear my voice SHE WILL WAKE UP!!!”
“If she hears MY voice let me massage her, play her favorite music I believe it will help. If you ask Bobby anything abt he cannot answer”
But Bobby Brown’s lawyer issued a statement saying that Gordon kept himself from seeing her by not complying with what the family wanted, including talking to police:
“Let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit. Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe.”
Since then, Gordon has spent much of Sunday night and Monday afternoon lashing out at Bobby Brown and his family. He started off calm:
And then he just started airing people out:
And it went downhill from there:
He even claims that he is the one who encouraged Bobbi Kristina to work on her relationship with Brown:
Gordon also spoke about his regrets and his times with both Bobbi Kristina and Whitney.
While I can understand Gordon’s frustration, I don’t see how trying to blast Bobby and the family is going to get him any closer to Bobbi Kristina. If he has nothing to hide, he should try and comply so that he can be near her, because this isn’t helping anything.
The situation surrounding Bobbi Kristina is just getting messier and messier by the minute.
Nick Gordon, the boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina, took to twitter last night to tell the world he has not been allowed to see Bobbi Kristina. Gordon tweeted,

Bobby Brown refuted these claims with a statement. His lawyer stated,
“Let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit. Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe.” His lawyer did not detail what the terms were.
Police officers are treating the situation as a criminal investigation and Nick Gordon has not talked to police officers thus far. Many believe the terms included an interview with police officers.
As for Bobbi, she still remains in a medically induced coma, three weeks after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.
According to her family members, doctors have been attempting to slowly lift her coma. Her breathing tube has been removed, and she will now be ventilated through a hole in her throat.
We’d heard and seen reports that Nick Gordon had yet to visit his partner, Bobbi Kristina in the hospital. But that seemed a little far-fetched, particularly when there were so many conflicting reports coming out and Nick Gordon was photographed at the hospital. Well, it turns out that those rumors are true.
Recently, an attorney for Nick Gordon, Randall Kessler, released a statement on Gordon’s behalf.
“Nick has been trying, privately; to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively. He has respected the family’s wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted.”
I sympathize with Nick and understand that he wants to see Bobbi Kristina, especially during this time. But based on the ongoing criminal investigation, it might be best for him to just wait things out.
We know very little about this whole situation but based on what we do know, do you think the family should allow him to see Bobbi Kristina?
“We Do Not Need This Side Show” Bobby Brown Slams Family For Speaking To Media + Nick Gordon Gets Tattoo Honoring Bobbi Kristina
The Bobbi Kristina story has gone in several directions, many of which we couldn’t have anticipated. With family sources speaking to the media often, it’s hard to know what’s true and what isn’t. While Bobby Brown’s lawyer, one of the only credible sources in this whole situation stepped forward with this update and even a warning to one family member in particular.
“At this time it is requested that the media cease speaking with unauthorized members of the family. The integrity of the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina must remain uncompromised. Various members of the family have provided media interviews, however, none of them are approved visitors to see Bobbi Kristina. None of them have firsthand knowledge of Bobbi Kristina’s treatment and the medical staff at Emory University Hospital has not communicated with them.
In particular, Jerod Brown aka Jerod Carter aka YF Kennedy, continues to makes statements and appear on television, however, he has not had any communication with Bobby Brown or the Houston family,” the statement continues of Brown’s cousin, who has been posting updates on his Facebook page and set up a public vigil in Bobbi’s honor. “He must be disregarded. Please do not attend any ‘meet and greet’ organized by Jerod Brown as he is unable to provide access to Bobbi Kristina or information on her condition. This is a criminal investigation and we do not need this side show.”
Bobby Brown added his own words to the statement, saying of his daughter’s health problems,
“We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers.”
And in other related news, Bobbi Kristina’s partner, Nick Gordon, recently showed the internet his new tattoo featuring her name.
None of us know all of the facts, but we’re continuing to pray for Bobbi Kristina’s healing and recovery.
It’s been two weeks since Bobbi Kristina Brown was discovered face down in the bathtub of her Georgia home. Since the 21-year-old’s hospitalization, quite a bit has been said about her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who is actually the person who discovered her in the tub. We’ve heard everything from speculation that Gordon played a role in the unfortunate incident that landed Brown in the hospital, to reports that he would be pursuing legal action to gain access to the hospital room at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta where Brown remains on life support.
While Gordon has not commented on the investigation, which has been opened against him, he did release a statement through his attorneys to dispel rumors that he’s trying to go through the courts to be allowed into Brown’s hospital room.
“In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like it to be clear, he is not. Mr. Gordon’s only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina,” said Gordon’s attorney, according to Radar Online.
“He remains in constant prayer for his companion,” the statement continued, “and he hopes to be reunited with her soon.”
As previously reported, Brown’s aunt, Leola Brown, says that she’s pretty confident that Gordon had something to do with her niece’s drowning accident.
“I believe that Nick Gordon will be charged with this,” she said in an interview earlier this week. “I hope that he will be charged with this, as well. Soon, I really do. Krissy would never do anything to herself. Everybody in the family knows that. There’s no doubt in my mind. Krissy loved life too much.”
We continue to send our prayers to the Brown and Houston families.

Ever since Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home, there have been a lot of questions about how she ended up that way, Nick Gordon’s involvement in everything, and of course, the marriage between Bobbi and Nick, that according to Bobby Brown’s lawyer, wasn’t ever real. Since all the facts aren’t out and probably won’t be for some time about this tragedy and the confusion surrounding it, we wanted to share some facts about Gordon, who many have said they don’t know much about. Here are 10 things to know and remember about the 25-year-old.
Nick Gordon Was Taken In By Whitney Houston When He Was 12
Though never legally adopted by Whitney, she took Gordon in at a time when, according to The Huffington Post, his “birth mother could no longer care for him.” He was raised alongside Bobbi Kristina for more than a decade. Gordon has said in the past that Whitney “treated me like she gave birth to me,” and he has only called her “mom.”
Looks like Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon might have pulled the wool over all of our eyes two years ago. While the two were on camera telling the world that they got married, Bobby Brown…or Bobby Brown’s lawyer, says that’s just not true.
TMZ reports that according to Bobby’s attorney, “Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”
And the Houston family agrees. The two never officially wed.
Furthermore, sources from the Houston family confirmed that there are no legal documents that would entitle Gordon to Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance from her mother, Whitney Houston.
You may remember that when the media told Bobby Brown that his daughter was married he was visibly shocked and said he didn’t believe it was true.
Turns out, he was absolutely right.
It is interesting that there was never a ceremony. And then back in 2013, there was this odd video of the two of them–primarily Nick– speaking very non descriptively about their actual wedding date and future plans. He kept directing the cameraman to the ring on Bobbi Kris’ finger.
Interesting…and probably for the best.
As for a health update, TMZ has learned that Bobbi Kristina has been moved to Emory University Hospital, in Atlanta, Georgia, to receive the best neurological treatment available in the area.
But apparently, the move was not met without contention. Apparently, the Houston and Brown families are arguing about who will have access to part of the hospital where Bobbi Kristina is receiving treatment.
One source said, “The Houston family is sick of the Brown family acting up, as they always do.”
We’re hoping this is not true, simply because this type of energy is just not conducive to the overall healing process for anyone involved.
We’re still praying for the best outcome for Bobbi Kristina. And hoping that the two families are maintaining their amicability during this time.
