Amidst increasing amounts of scrutiny, Nick Gordon has finally broken his silence to say he is praying for girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown’s recovery.
Speaking through attorney Randy Kessler in a statement to People, Bobbi Kristina’s self-described husband asked for space and privacy. The attorney added, “Mr. Gordon’s only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina. He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon.”
However, he did set the record straight about Bobbi Kristina’s cousin’s claim Nick is battling the Brown and Houston family’s hospital ban of him. The lawyer explained, “In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like it to be clear, he is not.”
In the interview where cousin Jerod Brown said Nick was trying to find a way to see Bobbi Kristina, he also said Nick is “pretty torn up about what’s going on.”
“I’m in contact with Nick — to be honest with you, Nick is feeling very emotional right now behind all of this,” Jerod told Atlanta’s 11Alive. “We sit down and talk about things he wants my family to know and what we would love for Krissi to know, and that is that he loves her and is just waiting for her to wake up.”
Many others in the Brown and Houston families aren’t on as good of terms with Nick: Not only did aunt Marion Houston obtain a temporary restraining order against Nick last year after he allegedly sent her threatening messages, but he is suspected of foul play for his involvement in Bobbi Kristina’s medical emergency.
