I don’t know if you guys saw Dr. Phil’s “interview” with Nick Gordon yesterday, but it was…bad. I didn’t expect it to be good, but I certainly didn’t expect it to be this horrible either. Nick’s girlfriend, Bobbi Kristina, has been in a coma since February, and remains in critical condition at Emory University hospital. Nick has not been a allowed to see Bobbi Kristina, and according to his mother, the separation has taken a toll on him.
Nick has even gone so far as to say that he “hates” Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s father for not allowing him to see his girlfriend.
“He cannot bear not being with Krissy, by her side,” his mom told Dr. Phil. “He’s dealing with it by drinking.” According to Nick’s mother, the 27 year old has also attempted to take his life several times.
During the taping of the show, Dr. Phil told Gordon: “Nick, you’re out of control. You’ve threatened suicide. You deserve to get some help because if you don’t, you know you’re going to wind up dead.” And THAT is when things went from “interview” to “intervention.”
According to US Weekly, after Gordon left the set, his mother Michelle Gordon began to talk about what allegedly happened the night Bobbi Kristina ended up face down in their bathtub. According to Michelle, Nick and Bobbi Kristina had gotten in a fight, and Nick had left the room. When he returned, he found Bobbi Kristina in the bathtub.
As of now, the interview Dr. Phil had originally scheduled has been postponed. Hopefully Nick can get the help he needs. This is a mental health issue, and it definitely needs to be addressed. From the outside looking in, it seems like he and Bobbi Kristina had a toxic, co-dependent relationship in which they both partook in some serious drugs and alcohol abuse. This is a really unfortunate and heartbreaking situation.
