Nick Gordon’s Mom Stages a ‘Dr. Phil’ Intervention for Son
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon (who she called her “husband”), made an appearance on Dr. Phil for an emergency intervention staged by his mom.
At the request of family and friends who say Gordon’s mental state was spiraling out of control, Dr. Phil flew to Atlanta on Wednesday, the same day as Bobbi Kristina’s birthday, to talk to him.
As evidenced by the latest postings to his Twitter account, the troubled 25-year-old is having a hard time dealing with the pain and heartache he has been experiencing since his girlfriend was placed in coma after being found face down in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga home.
“I love @REALbkBrown so much I admit I’m scared if anything happens to her I don’t know what I would do,” he tweeted on Feb. 25.
Just two days ago, Gordon’s tweets seemed like a desperate call for help when he wrote, “I’m so hurt I wanna do myself in, I know I have to be strong.”
The alarming tweet prompted an intervention set up by his mom.
Gordon believed he was meeting Dr. Phil to conduct an interview to discuss his relationship with Bobbi Kristina and being publicly ‘vilified.’ Instead he found his mother, Michelle, and Dr. Phil united in their mission to save his life.
Michelle said she was concerned about her son’s depression that dates back to the death of Whitney Houston, who was his God mom, and the chemical dependency he has formed.
“Houston’s death three years ago hit Nick hard. Michelle tells Dr. Phil, “As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance,” Michelle told Dr. Phil in a snippet of the interview released by the show. “When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, ‘Mom, why couldn’t I do it? I couldn’t get air into her lungs.'”He won’t let go of the guilt.”
Gordon was also the one to find Bobbi Kristina in an eerily similar state.
Throughout the interview, Gordon reportedly spoke of suicide and was incoherent at times. Since the taping, Gordon has reportedly entered rehab. It is unclear how long he will be in treatment.
The highly-charged intervention will air on Dr. Phil’s show next Wednesday, March 11.
