FROM WIRE REPORTS
To say Nick Gordon – who’s not at all liked by both the Bobby Brown and Houston clans and is supposedly under investigation for foul play regarding Bobbi Kristina being found face down in a bathtub of water – has some serious issues of his own is, well, an understatement.
That’s easy to see in his recent interview with Dr. Phil. In fact, Nick’s mother did a lot of the talking, and told Dr. Phil McGraw her son was deep into booze and Xanax. Gordon was so jacked up he could barely form sentences.
“Your son, left to his own devices, will be dead inside a week,” Dr. Phil warns Gordon’s mother in a pre-taped interview that aired on “Dr. Phil’’ on March 11.
Plenty of tears
The interview turned into an intervention when McGraw confronts Gordon about his drinking and drugging.
“I want you to go straight to rehab,” the daytime talk show host says, as Gordon becomes agitated with the direction things are going and walks out. He reportedly even punched two “Dr. Phil’’ staffers.
Gordon also sobbed over the loss of Whitney Houston, who was like a mother to him, as well as Bobbi Kristina, the woman he called his wife even though they were never legally married.
“I miss Krissi and Whitney so much. I want them back,” Gordon said through tears. He also declared, “I hate Bobby Brown” when asked about Bobbi Kristina’s father who has banned Gordon from visiting her in the hospital since her near-drowning incident on Jan. 31.
‘Volatile’ and distraught
McGraw said Gordon was “volatile” and emotionally distraught during the taping…and was clearly not sober.
He said Gordon entered a rehab facility immediately after the taping last week, which McGraw and the show described as an “intervention.”
Gordon felt “it was his job to protect Krissy, as he calls her, and that he obviously had failed,” and he’s distressed over being banned from her bedside, McGraw said.
Gordon’s attorneys have said that Bobby Brown has consistently denied Gordon permission to visit her in the hospital. A lawyer for Brown said that Gordon was offered a potential opportunity if he agreed to certain conditions.
