Bobbi Kristina Brown Update: Nick Gordon Breaks Silence, What Legal Guardianship Means For Bobby Brown

After spending close to two months in an in-house rehabilitation center, Nick Gordon broke his silence last week after posting a cryptic message on Twitter, along with a picture of himself cuddling with Bobbi Kristina Brown. Yesterday, he took to Twitter again, quoting a famous prayer.

Extra reports that Gordon, 26, reached out on April 23 via Twitter for the first time in more than a month. Although his message was short and simple, it indicates that Gordon may now be out of rehab.

“Back like I left something.”

Yesterday, Gordon turned to his spiritual side as he posted a portion of the “Serenity Prayer.” He doesn’t offer any explanation for the prayer, but there is speculation among supporters that he is having a difficult time dealing with Bobbi Kristina’s medical condition, coupled with his recent sobriety.

Last week, Gordon’s younger brother, Jack Walker, said that Gordon was doing well and living sober. Walker also defended his brother, stating that Gordon has always loved Bobby Kristina and would never harm her. However, Gordon still remains under investigation for the January 31 incident that left Bobbi comatose.

Meanwhile, Bobby Brown, 46, continues on with his battle for legal guardianship over Bobbi Kristina’s estate. What does this mean, exactly, and what will happen to Bobbi Kristina? According to Steve Worrall, an estate planning attorney from Marietta, Georgia, it simply means that Bobby Brown wants full control over his daughter’s personal care.

“It would be appropriate for him to apply for guardianship, conservatorship or both. Once (Brown) is appointed as guardian he would have the authority to handle her person. A conservator would have the authority to make financial decisions. Certainly somebody needs to handle her financial affairs.”

While guardianship would allow Brown control over his daughter’s person, conservatorship would allow him control over her finances until she’s able to make decisions on her own. Under Georgia law, a person can be designated a guardian, a conservator, or both, depending upon the case. Worrall states that two terms are often confused.

“The correct terminology is guardianship over her person and conservator over finances.”

Bobby Brown must have at least two sworn petitioners and attend a court hearing before a decision is made. In some instances, the courts may require a background check before granting guardianship or conservatorship.

Bobbi Kristina Brown remains in the hospital after she was found unconscious in a bathtub earlier this year, in her Roswell, Georgia, townhouse. Cissy Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, indicated last week that her granddaughter suffers from global and irreversible brain damage.
