Nick Gordon Consistently Prohibited by Bobby Brown from Visiting Bobbi Kristina, Say Attorneys


LifetimeBobby Brown has “consistently prohibited” Nick Gordon from being at the side of his partner, Bobbi Kristina Brown, as she remains hospitalized in Georgia, Gordon’s attorneys said Sunday.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, has been in the hospital surrounded by family members ever since Gordon and a friend found her unresponsive at her Roswell, Georgia, home.

“Bobby Brown has consistently prohibited Nick, who Bobbi Kristina would want by her side, from being there,” Gordon’s attorneys, Randall Kessler and Joe Habachy, said in a statement.

Gordon’s attorneys continued that Brown has only “offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina” if their client meets Brown’s conditions, which they advised against, “particularly in light of Mr. Brown’s inability to guarantee access.”

“But in an effort to do all he can to visit, Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Mr. Brown privately to discuss his request in person, rather than through lawyers,” the statement read. “Those offers have also been rejected. We hope Mr. Brown has a change of heart.”

Brown’s attorney said on Saturday that Gordon was offered a chance to see Bobbi Kristina.

“To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon’s requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit,” said Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC, legal counsel for Bobby Brown.

The statement did not elaborate on what those visitation terms were, but added, “We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to this investigation. Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe.”

Shortly after Brown, 21, was found face-down in her tub, her father’s lawyer stated that she and Gordon were not married despite the couple announcing a marriage on social media and to reporters last year.

Gordon and Brown got together romantically shortly after the death of Brown’s mother, Whitney Houston, in 2012. Before that time, Gordon lived with Houston and her family for almost a decade.

After Brown was discovered by Gordon in her home on January 31, she was taken to North Fulton Hospital, but then moved to Emory University Hospital days later.
