Bobbi Kristina’s Aunt Slams Dr. Phil for Allowing Nick Gordon on His Talk Show
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Nick Gordon has been very vocal on Twitter about Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization, and it’s one of the reasons he was able to book an appearance on “Dr. Phi.”
However, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Leolah Brown, is upset he was able to nab an appearance on the talk show, so she wrote the following statement on Facebook:
With all due respect, Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobby Kristina Brown. We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit.
If Nick Gordon does not have the courage to speak with my brother Bobby Brown and/or law enforcement about what happened the day my niece’s body was found in a bathtub, he does not deserve to have a platform to speak to anyone of your caliber until this investigation is concluded.
Keep in mind officers have not confirmed Nick is under investigation for attempted murder.
In related news, Gossip Cop claims Nick allegedly got violent with some Dr. Phil staffers during taping:
As Gossip Cop reported, Gordon sat down with Dr. Phil for what he believed would be an interview about Brown but was actually an intervention staged by Dr. Phil and Gordon’s mother Michelle, who said she feared for her son’s life due to his drug use and alleged suicidal thoughts. The filming took place at an Atlanta hotel, where Gordon was allegedly so drunk and high, he was unable to walk on his own and was instead pushed around on a luggage cart.
Gordon was allegedly incoherent for much of the interview, with TMZ sources blaming a combination of alcohol and Xanax. The site claims, however, that when Gordon realized the meeting was an intervention, he became violent and allegedly punched two “Dr. Phil” staffers. Ultimately, as Gossip Cop reported, Gordon entered a rehab facility after the taping.
According to CBS, the full “Dr. Phil” interview, which is slated to air on Wednesday’s episode, features Gordon discussing the “severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering” since Whitney Houston’s death and Brown’s medical emergency. The meeting is described as “emotionally charged,” with Gordon deemed “out of control.” TMZ previously reported that during the taping, Gordon threatened to kill himself if Brown did not recover.
