The mystery of Nick Gordon has become darker. Once a 12-year-old boy abandoned by his mother, and then rescued by Whitney Houston, Gordon was raised with Bobbi Kristina as if the two were brother and sister. But then, after Whitney’s death, the grief-stricken young teen seemed to find comfort in her unofficial brother. However, when the two announced that they were engaged, family turmoil followed.

Now, after Bobby Brown has announced that the two are not legally married despite Bobbi Kristina’s social media posts referring to Nick as her husband, the family is not allowing Gordon in the hospital room where she has been unconscious since January 31, reported the New York Post.

Nick’s lawyers emphasized that although he wants to be with Bobbi Kristina, he is respecting the family’s desires.

“Nick has been trying, privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively,” stated his lawyers, Randall M. Kessler and Joe S. Habachy. “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.”

Gordon, together with a friend, discovered Bobbi Kristina lying face-down in a bathtub, a discovery that paralleled the death of her mother, Whitney. Police are calling it a criminal investigation.

Bobbi Kristina allegedly has experienced domestic abuse and violence from Nick, which has reportedly put Gordon at the center of that investigation.

But what of Bobbi Kristina’s social media postings that she was married to Nick? Not so, insist both Bobby Brown’s lawyer and the Houston family, according to TMZ.

“Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon,” said Bobby’s attorney.

Moreover, as for speculation that Nick would receive a fortune if Bobbi Kristina passed away, no such legal documents support that claim, said Houston family members.

The support for rumors of domestic violence between Bobbi Kristina and Gordon were substantiated by a neighbor, reported the New York Daily News.

A 911 recording unveiled reports of a violent dispute outside the 21-year-old’s home. That fight occurred only a few days before she was discovered unconscious.

In addition to those allegations of domestic violence and abuse, new reports have emerged indicating that Bobbi Kristina also struggled with drug addiction, as the Inquisitr reported.

On the same morning that she was discovered, sources allege that she was under the influence of drugs. In addition, those insiders claim that Bobbi Kristina regularly took cocaine and Xanax as well as heroin and drank heavily.
