It’s been nine months since the passing of Bobbi Kristina, and now, the late star’s ex, Nick Gordon is recalling the months leading up Krissi’s death.

In an interview set to air on April 28 and 29th, Gordon sits down with Dr. Phil to talk about his relationship with his late “wife.” During the sit down, Gordon opens up about BK’s drug abuse and how Whitney Houston’s passing took a toll on Bobbi’s health wellbeing.

“It got really bad after Nip [Whitney] had passed away,” he says. “It was unfortunate but at the time it was the only way we knew how to deal with what had happened.”

Bobbi was found unconscious inside a bathtub full of water in January 2015 inside her Georgia townhouse. Bobbi died six months later on July 26 while in hospice care.

It was immediately unclear what led to the aspiring singer’s hospitalization, but there was speculation that Gordon had something to do with it considering the pair’s toxic relationship. According to Bobbi’s conservator, Nick drugged Bobbi, causing her to drown.

“Regardless of what everybody thinks, I made Krissy and Whitney’s last few years on earth as happy as they would be,” Gordon tells Dr. Phil when asked about folks thinking he is an “evil doer.” “I gave them somebody to trust, to talk to, to be there, someone genuine.”

As for whom to blame, Gordon points the finger at Krissi’s father, Bobby Brown. “[Bobby] hurt his own daughter, not me,” Gordon explains. “I was the one there for her while she was dealing with him not being there. He’s not a reasonable person so I’m not planning on talking to him and I really don’t want to.”

Back in March 2015, Dr. Phil attempted to conduct an interview with Nick; however, getting the 20-year-old to be candid was difficult because he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

But this time, things were different. Nick has been to rehab and is a different mental space. “Rehab was something I needed, and I’m thankful that I got that opportunity,” he tells the doctor. “I was drinking so much at the time because I could not deal with what was happening to Krissy. It mentally broke me. That’s the lowest point in my life right there.”


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
