Just days after Bobbi Kristina was taken off of life support and transferred to hospice care, her best friend is speaking out about her toxic relationship with boyfriend Nick Gordon.
Alex Reid, told E! News that Bobbi Kristina confided in her on numerous occasions that she was afraid of Gordon and that he was physically abusive. “Krissi was physically abused by Nick on a number of occasions and she told me about some of them,” explained Reid who met Bobbi Kristina two years ago in Los Angeles. “I never witnessed anything…she would FaceTime me every time she was distraught, when something has just happened or show me a bruise.”
“One time I remember she called me for three hours,” Reid continued. “She was hyperventilating. I could barely understand what she was saying because she was so distraught. When she could finally get the words out she told me he had been physically abusive. He had hit her in the face and thrown her against a wall.”
Reid says she begged Bobbi Kristina to leave Gordon, but she wouldn’t listen. “There were things I knew that she couldn’t tell anyone else. She didn’t feel comfortable confiding in her family because she loved him and she didn’t want them turning against him, more than they already had. She loved him and was loyal to him despite the abuse.”
According to Reid, just three weeks before Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home, the 21-year old called her sobbing that Gordon had struck her before she locked herself in her deceased mothers closet to get away from him.
“She was sobbing. Nick had hit her and she was scared,” explains Reid, recalling the conversation. “She was very upset. She didn’t know what to do. It was as if, she didn’t have anyone else to turn to. It was heartbreaking.”
Georgia police have said that they are zeroing in on a suspect and have launched a full investigation into what happened in Bobbi Kristina’s home on Jan 31. Reid told E! News that she is willing to help in any way she can. “There are things that I know that no one else does. And I hope that by speaking out I can help the investigation in some way.”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
