Bobby Brown Responds to Reports Nick Gordon Not Allowed to See Bobbi Kristina
Brown's lawyer: "Gordon was offered an opportunity to visit Bobbi Kristina."
— -- Bobby Brown's lawyer says that his daughter's partner, Nick Gordon, was offered a chance to see her as she is being treated at a hospital in Georgia, despite Gordon's reported complaints about being kept away.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of pop icons Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, has been at the hospital surrounded by family members ever since Gordon and a friend found her unresponsive at her Roswell, Georgia, home.
“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.”
The statement Saturday night from Brown's lawyer followed tweets from an unverified Twitter account with more than 30,000 followers claiming to be Gordon's. The tweets purported to be Gordon begging to see his partner.
Gordon's lawyer, Randall Kessler told ABC News last week, "Nick has been trying privately to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively. He has respected the family’s wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted.”
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 Jan. 31, she was taken to North Fulton Hospital, but then moved to Emory University Hospital days later.
“We continue to request privacy in this matter," Brown's statement added. "We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers."
