According to theWrap.com, Gordon took to Twitter Saturday night in an effort to gain access to Brown, who has been in a medically induced coma at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta three weeks after she was discovered facedown and unconscious in her bathtub by Gordon on Jan. 31. Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, remains in critical condition.
Soon after the tweet was posted, Christopher Brown, Bobby Brown’s attorney (no relation), sent out the following response:
“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. 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.”
On Sunday, Gordon’s lawyer Randall M. Kessler countered Christopher Brown response with a statement of his own on his client’s behalf:
“Bobby Brown has consistently prohibited Nick, who Bobbi Kristina would want by her side, from being there,” Kessler said.
“Per his own words, Mr. Brown has only ‘offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina’ if Nick were to meet certain conditions, conditions that we, his attorneys, have advised him not to meet, particularly in light of Mr. Brown’s inability to guarantee access. But in an effort to do all he can to visit, Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Mr. Brown privately to discuss his request in person, rather than through lawyers. Those offers have also been rejected. We hope Mr. Brown has a change of heart.”
The tweet and back and forth statements mark the latest development in the situation involving Gordon and Bobbi Kristina’s family.
Despite Bobbi Kristina tweeting that she and Gordon were married (“Happily married. So in love.”), Christopher Brown released a statement in February saying the couple were never united in holy matrimony.
At this time, police are investigating the circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s near drowning as Bobby Brown‘s sister Leolah Brown expressed her belief that Gordon would be implicated.
