It’s the first time the world has heard from him since the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death last year but Nick Gordon has revealed what happened in the crucial hours before her death.
In an emotional interview with Daily Mail Online he speaks about his torment over her father Bobby Brown’s ‘abandonment’ of her and her mother, Whitney Houston, told that she self harmed, was truly depressed over two miscarriages but also admits his own sense of failure regarding her and his downward spiral which lead to the fatal incident on January 31 last year.
In an amazing revelation, he claims that Bobbi Kristina almost drowned in a bathtub, once before but was rescued by her mother. Gordon says that it happened the very night before Whitney passed away, in the same way.
He says that ”I blame myself for not getting to Krissy quick enough that day. I can’t blame myself for another addict’s addiction but I feel like I failed her. She didn’t make it, I wish she got help.”
Gordon who had been to rehab says if there was one thing he could change it would be that ”she got my space in rehab.”
Following on from Bobbi Kristina’s death there were a lot of people saying that Gordon was the reason she died, including her father Bobby Brown, who said ”we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon”.
He vehemently denies any wrong doing and dismisses the civil suit as ”bull****” before going on to give his account of what happened.
He says ‘I went out with a couple of buddies of mine earlier that day and we were out having a good time. Krissy thought I was with some other females and that’s when she got upset. She called and said I had to come home.”
Gordon is adamant that is was about 4AM when he finally did get home and saw that Bobbi Kristina was already clearly ”messed up”.
He adds ”‘I saw a couple of bottles of wine. I thought she had just been drinking, maybe smoked a little. She was upset, we got into a little argument and then we made up and went upstairs and lay on the bed for about 45 minutes and did what adults do.’
Once that was over, he didn’t stay in the same room as Bobbi Kristina, he instead ”went downstairs to go and play PS4 real quick and she got up and was doing her own thing. She was getting up and getting dressed.”
It is revealed there were four people in the house at that time; Bobbi Kristina, Gordon, house guest Daniella Bradley and friend Max Lomas.
The timeline of events is not clear but Gordon says that at around 10am ”
‘The Xfinity [cable] guy came and had to do a bunch of stuff in the house and I had my friend Max walk round with him because he had to change all the boxes and I wanted to make sure he’s not stealing anything or taking pictures.
‘So he [Max] walked him into my room to show him the box in there.
‘He knocked on the door and didn’t hear a call from Krissy. He knocked on the bathroom and still didn’t hear a call from Krissy and that’s when he found her in the bathtub. Then he calls my name.’
Gordon stops for a moment before saying ”
‘I’m sorry this is hard. I knew instantly something was wrong. You know there’s a tone; you can hear it in someone’s voice.
‘I ran to my room and then I saw my girl on the floor. It was so traumatising. I dropped to my knees and kept giving her chest compressions and blowing into her mouth.’
There was a moment of relief, he tells, when Bobbi Kristina spat up some water. ‘I thought she was going to come round but that never happened.’
Gordon was speaking on Dr Phil, where he returns for the first time since he was put into rehab by the television counsellor, earlier last year.
Bobbi Kristina, was 22 years old when she was declared dead on July 26 2015, six months after being placed in a medically induced coma. She had ”global and irreversible” brain damage.
Dr Phil airs weekdays on Channel Ten at midday.
