Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, told Dr. Phil McGraw he has attempted suicide twice and will kill himself if Bobbi Kristina dies.
Gordon checked into rehab for drug and alcohol abuse after Dr. Phil staged an intervention at his mother’s request, Examiner reported. Gordon has been severely depressed as a comatose Bobbi Kristina hovers near death on life support.
Gordon will appear on the March 11 episode of the “Dr. Phil Show,” where McGraw confronts Nick about his suicidal thoughts, drug and alcohol abuse while coping with Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization.
“Your son, left to his own devices, will be dead inside a week,” Dr. Phil told Nick’s mom, Michelle Gordon.
Gordon, 25, told Dr. Phil he has been drinking heavily and abusing the prescription anxiety drug Xanas following Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization.
Gordon’s mother told Dr. Phil she’s worried for her son’s life. “As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance,” she said.
Nick’s mother approached Dr. Phil about the intervention after a tweet he sent indicated he was considering suicide. “I’m so hurt I wanna do myself in, I know I have to strong,” Gordon tweeted March 3.
Nick’s depression has spiraled out of control as the bitter feud between him and Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, has heated up. Brown won’t allow Gordon to visit Bobbi Kristina unless he speaks with police about the circumstances leading up to her drowning.
Nick: ‘I Miss Krissi So Much!’
Nick told Dr. Phil he’s furious with Brown for not allowing him to see his girlfriend. “I hate Bobby Brown!” Gordon shouted. “I miss Krissi and Whitney so much! I want them back.”
Bobbi Kristina’s health outlook remains grim as she remains on life support in a medically induced coma. Doctors recently tried to take Bobbi Kristina off the drugs that have kept her in a coma for more than a month but quickly aborted the plan after she started having violent seizures.
The comatose Bobbi Kristina now lingers near death on life support, which includes a ventilator and feeding tube. Brown has been in a coma on life support since Jan. 31, when she was found unconscious and face-down by her friend Max Lomas in the bathtub of her Georgia home. Lomas called 911 while Bobbi’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, administered CPR.
A criminal investigation is underway focusing on the suspicious circumstances preceding her drowning. Police are investigating whether foul play was involved after injuries were found around Bobbi Kristina’s face and mouth and bruising was discovered in her chest area.
Gordon could be charged with attempted murder if police find evidence suggesting he had tried to murder Bobbi Kristina.
Nick Being Investigated for Murder and ‘Foul Play’
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt, Leolah Brown, announced on Facebook that Gordon is under investigation for “attempted murder,” saying there is “strong evidence of foul play.” Leolah addressed her post to Dr. Phil, Examiner reported:
With all due respect,
Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobby 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.
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.
