Why has Bobby Brown, who lost his wife Whitney Houston to drowning and drugs and now watches helplessly as his 22-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown lies unconscious, become the target of Nick Gordon’s anger? Gordon, who grew up with Bobbi Kristina as Whitney’s unofficial adopted son before becoming Bobbi’s live-in lover, has been venting wrath and accusations at Brown.
Now Dr. Phil is seeking to discover the truth about what really happened by staging an intervention with Nick, reported the Huffington Post. Gordon reportedly is addicted to both drugs and alcohol.
During the interview with Dr. Phil, Nick revealed that he has battled anxiety and emotional trauma from both Bobbi Kristina and Whitney’s death. His birth mother, Michelle, attended the Dr. Phil taping and asked for help from the famed psychologist.
“As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance. 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.”
Using social media to express himself, Nick also has posted repeated requests to see Bobbi Kristina, attacking Bobby Brown.
“Bobby you’re just a center fold. You’re doing shows I would be there by her side 24/7 non stop taking care of our baby,” posted Nick, referring to Brown’s shows prior to Bobbi Kristina’s health crisis.
Gordon also declined to be interviewed regarding what happened.
“No time for interviews. Talk about something diff.”
But it was one of the posts in which he expressed suicidal feelings that caused the concern from Michelle.
“I’m so hurt I wanna do myself in, I know I have to [sic] strong.”
But while Dr. Phil and Nick’s mother tried to help the 25-year-old, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah told a very different story, as the Inquisitr reported.
On her Facebook page, Leolah pleaded with Dr. Phil to recognize the fact that Nick Gordon is the focus of a criminal investigation. She also accused Gordon of trying to kill her niece.
“Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobbi Kristina Brown. We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit.”
Leolah also answered the question of why Bobby has blocked Nick from the hospital room, explaining that he has refused to answer questions to help the investigation into what really happened to Bobbi Kristina.
“If Nick Gordon does not have the courage to speak with my brother Bobby Brown and/or law enforcement about what happened the day my niece’s body was found in a bathtub, he does not deserve to have a platform to speak to anyone of your caliber until this investigation is concluded,” she wrote on Facebook.
However, Gordon has now checked into rehab following Dr. Phil’s intervention, according to Us Weekly. The episode will air on March 11.
