Following the heartbreaking death of Bobbi Kristina Brown on July 26, the mother of her longtime love, Nick Gordon, has finally spoken out on his behalf.
When Bobbi Kristina Brown was hospitalized in January after being found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub, her ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, 25, had a bit of a breakdown, inclusive of an intervention on Dr. Phil and a stint in rehab. Now, his mom, Michele Gordon, is speaking out on his behalf, alleging that he has “suffered greatly” throughout all of this. Click inside to see what else she said!
“The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family,” Michele said in a statement to Us Weekly on July 27. “Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they’ve been apart. Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time.”
As of now, Nick has been blacklisted by the Houston/Brown families as Bobbi Kristina’s cause of death continues to be investigated. On Jan. 31, he found the 22-year-old unconscious at her Roswell, GA home — the catalyst for her seven-month medically-induced coma.
Nick was served with papers in Florida (where he has been living with his mom) at the beginning of July for a lawsuit alleging he abused Bobbi Kristina. The documents were filed by her conservator Bedelia Hargrove, who has stated that Nick dragged Bobbi Kristina by her hair up the stairs of her home, stole funds from her bank account without permission and punched her teeth out mere hours before she almost drowned to death.
