The Brown’s and the Houston’s are reportedly outraged about the publicity stunt and Leolah Brown, Bobby Brown’s sister, pleads with the public to see Nick for his works.
That being said… on the eve of Gordon’s Dr. Phil appearance, a video of him falling down drunk in an Atlanta hotel has miraculously surfaced. There’s also more footage of Gordon’s television debut, where Dr. Phil tells him to ‘man up’ about the situation prior to shipping him off to rehab.
Details + videos below…
Reporters just so happened to be at the Buckhead Ritz Carlton in Atlanta to capture the video above (insert side-eye).
In the short clip, Nick Gordon seems incoherent and so drunk and/or high that he is unable to walk.
Captured on video barely 12 hours before a dramatic intervention by Dr Phil McGraw Gordon, 25, is shown falling down drunk and being helped to his feet in his hotel, the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead, Atlanta.
The beleaguered fiancé of Bobby Kristina Brown believed he was to be interviewed by Dr Phil the following day. Gordon has now admitted to taking heroin, Xanax and drinking heavily since Bobby Kristina, 22, was found face-down and unresponsive in her bath-tub on 31 January.
He had wanted to tell his story publicly because he felt he was being ‘vilified’ and depicted as a ‘monster.’ (source)
Gordon’s mother ‘Michelle’ states in the interview with Dr. Phil that her son ‘cannot take too much more of not being able to see Kriss. He blames himself. He’s torn up and carrying guilt. He’s dealing with it by drinking. I’ve begged him to stop. I’ve tried to help him but he can’t let go of the guilt.’
Dr. Phil was reportedly scheduled to interview Gordon but due to the criminal investigation, I’m almost positive Nick was advised against it.
Instead, Nick goes forward with the interview but appears on the show in a ‘drunken’ state claiming to be suicidal. Dr. Phil decides that the ‘interview’ is now an ‘intervention’ and conveniently ships Gordon off to rehab.
Dr Phil stated: ‘I don’t think he has any chance of turning this round. Left to his own devices he will be dead within the week.’
Gordon’s mother, Michelle, was by her son’s side as he alternated between compliant and aggressive – at one point threatening to attack camera men as they filmed.
She described her son as ‘at breaking point.’
She said: ‘He cannot take too much more of not being able to see Kriss. He blames himself. He’s torn up and carrying guilt.
‘He’s dealing with it by drinking. I’ve begged him to stop. I’ve tried to help him but he can’t let go of the guilt.’
Leaning towards Gordon’s mother, Dr Phil said: ‘You and I have one mission with one possible outcome and that’s for him to agree to go to rehab to deal with his depression, his guilt…and to get clean and sober.’
He added: ‘His life absolutely hangs in the balance.’ (source)
Here’s a 2nd clip of Nick Gordon on Dr. Phil where he’s told to ‘man up’ about the situation:
Meanwhile, questions remain unanswered regarding just what happened in the early hours of January 31st that led to Bobbi Kristina, ending up face down in her tub.
The Dr. Phil episode airs today at 3pm EST on CBS and is should be quite entertaining. Nick’s stunts & shows and fake tears in the trailers have created quite a buzz and while no one seems to believe him, I’m sure his ‘act’ will be ratings gold for the mid-day talk show.
