Nick Gordon’s mother, Michelle Gordon, said in a statement on July 27 that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death had devastated her son and the rest of their family.
Bobbi Kristina Brown died on July 26 at the age of 22. She had been in a coma since being found face down and unresponsive in a bath at her Atlanta home on January 31.
She was found by Nick Gordon in the bathroom of their home in Atlanta.
“Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they’ve been apart,” she said.
“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.”
A police report described Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death as a “drowning” although it is unclear what led to it.
Bruising was found on the front of her body at the time. Authorities later said Whitney Houston’s daughter had sustained injuries in a car crash several days earlier, adding they were not the result of foul play.
Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said the time that had elapsed since the incident that led to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death would “complicate” its effort to reconstruct events.
It said the initial portion of the post-mortem had been completed and there were no signs of “an obvious underlying cause of death”, no significant injuries and no previously unknown medical conditions.
The cause of death would not be announced until all tests have been conducted, it added, saying that could take “several weeks”.
Nick Gordon, 25, is currently estranged from the Houston/Brown family as the mysterious circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death are under investigation. According to new reports, Nick Gordon learned of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death “just like everyone else did, from the Internet”.
Nick Gordon was still in Florida with his mother at the time the news broke and he is not welcome at Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral service.
Nick Gordon has entered rehab after revealing his suicidal thoughts during an interview with Dr. Phil.
Dr. Phil McGraw sat down with Nick Gordon for an emergency intervention that will air on Wednesday, March 11, on Dr. Phil, to talk him through his various issues, including drug and alcohol abuse and panic attacks he has been experiencing in the wake of girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown’s hospitalization.

“As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance,” Michelle Gordon told Dr. Phil, Nick by her side, 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,” Michelle Gordon says.
“My heart is full of angry after the Browns have shut me out,” Nick Gordon tweeted on February 25, referring to his repeated claims that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family has barred him from visiting his girlfriend in the hospital and he has been doing everything he could to see her.
“They don’t even know her. Sabotage.”
Bobby Brown’s camp, meanwhile, has said that Nick Gordon “declined” the chance to visit under conditions put forth by the family.
“Happy Birthday baby I wish I was there with you to hold you and be by your side,” Nick Gordon tweeted on March 4.
