While Bobbi Kristina Brown remains hospitalized in Atlanta, her partner, Nick Gordon, is lashing out at her father, Bobby Brown. Gordon claims he’s been prevented from Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, since her hospitalization. But Bobby Brown’s lawyers have a different story, saying “Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit.”
The feud escalated on Monday (Feb. 23) when Gordon took to Twitter and attacked Bobby Brown, calling him an absentee father who is after Whitney Houston’s money and publicity.
Bobby Brown’s lawyers responded to the tweets in a statement, suggesting Gordon has been unable to meet terms that require him to provide information on the events leading up to Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization:
“It appears that Mr. Gordon did not want his understanding of the facts to be subject to the truthful examination of various experts or Bobby Brown himself. Mr. Gordon has every right to remain silent and not share his version of the events with Bobby Brown. 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. At least not desperate enough to inform Bobby Brown, in writing, what happened to Bobbi Kristina.”
However, Gordon’s lawyers said they advised him against meeting these terms, “particularly in light of Mr. Brown’s inability to provide access.” Bobbi Kristina remains in a medically induced coma since being found unconscious in her bathtub on January 31. Police are treating the case as a criminal investigation.
