Bobbi Kristina Isn’t Getting Any Better

Unfortunately, there’s no good news to report about Bobbi Kristina‘s health at the moment. The last we heard, Bobby Brown was telling everyone his daughter was “awake”, though he clearly only meant that metaphorically, and then he applied for guardianship over her estate. That title was given to him and Cissy Houston jointly, and it seems necessary since Cissy revealed this weekend that there have been no improvements in her granddaughter’s condition.

“She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all,” Houston told Entertainment Tonight‘s Kevin Frazier on Saturday. “She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her… I have nothing to do with that. That’s His job. It’s His territory, you know? And I understand it.”

Houston will perform Saturday evening at McDonald’s Gospelfest in New Jersey, singing “The Blood that Jesus Shed for Me.” She tells ET that the songs’ lyrics hold special meaning to her today.

“Way back on the cavalry,” she quotes, “The blood that gives me strength from day to day shall never lose its power.”

Well, the whole thing is, you can keep a person on life support for years when they’re still a vegetable. They’re medically alive, but they’re not alive in any other way. Eventually, that difficult decision may have to be made by the family. That’s not for any of us to decide when that is, of course, but this tragedy needs some form of conclusion so they can try to begin and find peace and closure.

Bobby Brown Wants Guardianship Over Bobbi Kristina’s Estate

Things are still very touch-and-go in Bobbi Kristina‘s world. Despite statements from her father, Bobby Brown, that she was awake and “watching him”, the truth is that she’s still very much in the medically induced coma doctors placed her in back at the end of January, when she was found face-down in her bathtub at home. It’s incredibly sad, and chances are she’s just not going to make it, but before the Houston and Brown families can come to an agreement on what to do, Bobby wants to get his hands on his daughter’s estate.

From NBC 11:

Bobby Brown has filed for guardianship over Bobbi Kristina Brown’s estate.

Bobbi Kristina, the 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was placed in a medically-induced coma after being found unresponsive in a Roswell home on Jan. 31. Last month, she was moved from Emory University Hospital to DeKalb Medical Center.

David W. Long, the attorney for Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother Cissy Houston released a statement saying:

This is a family matter involving sensitive information. We hope to resolve this in a manner that is respectful of Bobbi Kristina’s sensitive health information. The Houston family has always looked out for the best interest of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The family has done so all of her life and will continue to do so. We trust that others have the same objective.

Yikes. Please do not let this man have ANY control over anything of Bobbi’s. He was barely there throughout her life and I don’t trust him not to squander every last penny she owns. And why would he be filing for this now? Yes, I know it could be that both sides of the family are starting to accept her fate, but it just seems seriously tacky. I know it has to be dealt with, but I think Bobby’s a sleazeball and this whole thing is a mess.

Bobby Brown Tells Crowd “Bobbi Kristina Is Awake”

bobbi kristina bobby brown

Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically induced coma since January 31, when she was found face down in her Atlanta home’s bathtub. We pretty much know by now that she will never recover or awaken — her organs don’t want to function on their own and chances are, she sustained some pretty irreparable brain damage during the ordeal. While I completely respect the family’s refusal to let her go just yet, I do think it’s pretty weird that Bobby Brown performed a concert this weekend and told fans that Bobbi is awake… kinda?

From TMZ:

Bobby Brown stunned his audience during a concert Saturday night, when he told the crowd, “Bobbi is awake.  She’s watching me.”

It’s unclear what Brown is really saying.  On the one had, if you take the first comment at face value it seems he’s saying Bobbi Krisina is out of the coma she’s been in since January 31st.

But when Bobby says, “She’s watching me,” it makes it sound like something other than consciousness.

Bobby made the comment at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas.

I think we can all agree that Bobbi is not “awake” in the literal sense of the world. The Houston family would be shouting that from the rooftops in joy if that were the case. Obviously he was being figurative and must feel like Bobbi is acting as his angel or watching OVER him.

Nick Gordon’s interview with Dr. Phil was predictably awful

nick gordon dr. phil In case you have a life and/or enough self-respect to have missed watching Nick Gordon‘s interview-cum-intervention with Dr. Phil yesterday, don’t worry – I’m here to tell you what an unsurprising trainwreck the whole thing was. Not because I watched it live either, of course, but the internet is a miraculous place where things are available roughly five seconds after they air, so here we are. Before we get to the video, here are a few… erm, highlights? Or at least a few things to note, at the very least. – Nick was drunk when he turned up for the interview. Dr. Phil was aware of this before the cameras started rolling but decided a paycheck was worth more than his dignity, so the interview went forward. At one point, Nick says, “You’re gonna ask… I’ve been drinking. I have been doing Xanax… I’ve been sober besides that.” – Nick’s mom claims that Nick has tried to kill himself by taking pills and insists that he would never have hurt Bobbi Kristina. – At one point, Nick shouts “I hate Bobby Brown!” – At another point, he begins playing a Whitney Houston song on his phone and sobbing. Yikes. Really don’t even know what to say about this giant mess. Every single person involved in this should be ashamed of themselves for various reasons… but here ya go.

Is Nick Gordon being investigated for the attempted murder of Bobbi Kristina?

bobbi kristina nick gordon

Well, this is insane. Bobbi Kristina, who is still fighting for her life in hospital with pretty much zero chance of ever regaining consciousness, was apparently super in love with the man who was never actually her husband, Nick Gordon. It turns out, Nick might have been not only abusing her regularly leading up to the tragic incident that found her face down in her bath tub, but he may actually have been directly involved in that incident. According to Leolah Brown, Bobbi’s aunt, Nick is being investigated for her attempted murder!

Here’s what Leolah wrote on Facebook (of course):

“Dr. Phil, With all due respect, Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobby Kristina Brown.

“We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit.”

“If Nick Gordon does not have the courage to speak with my brother Bobby Brown and/or law enforcement about what happened the day my niece’s body was found in a bathtub, he does not deserve to have a platform to speak to anyone of your caliber until this investigation is concluded. Respectfully, Leolah Brown.”

Well, that’s pretty damning. Is it true? Who can say – but the police do want to speak to him. That being said, one would think if it was for attempted murder, he wouldn’t have a choice NOT to speak to them, so I don’t know if this is actually happening. Was Nick Gordon involved? I would have to say yes, obviously.

In any case, speaking of that Dr. Phil interview that’ll be on this week, we have a preview clip and if this doesn’t look like the fakest, most ridiculous bullshit I’ve ever seen, I don’t know what does:

Nick Gordon is taking his “mental anguish” over Bobbi Kristina to Dr. Phil

nick gordon dr phil

Nick Gordon won’t talk to police or Bobby Brown about what really happened with Bobbi Kristina before she was found face down in her bathtub at the end of January, leading to her being placed in a medically induced coma with little chance of survival. So who will he talk to? Dr. Phil, of course! That’s right – he’s taking all that “mental anguish” and cashing in on some TV time (and probably actual cash, since you know he’s getting paid for this bullshit) by opening up about his feelings for a total quack, as you do.

Here’s the scoop from People:

The episode airing Wednesday, per a CBS press release, will see Dr. Phil McGraw “offering Gordon the treatment he appears to so desperately need as he battles drug and alcohol addiction.”

Also appearing on the segment will be Gordon’s mother, Michelle.

“As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance,” says Michelle in her segment with Dr. Phil, according to the release.

Gordon, 22, will open up about the “severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks” he says that he has been experiencing ever since finding Bobbi Kristina, now 22, face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31.

“He won’t let go of the guilt,” reads Michelle’s statement.

Yeah, okay. I mean, sure, maybe he does love her – so much so that he had allegedly been abusing her for years. He’s a drug addict and so is Bobbi Kristina, only her life is the one that’s been lost and he’s the asshole trying to make money off the whole thing. He’s so desperate to see Bobbi, but not willing to meet the very few conditions he’d need to in order to see her, so I’m not buying this bullshit. The only things Dr. Phil did by having Nick on his show is a) give him more publicity and b) buy him more drugs.

Nick Gordon doesn’t want the police to see his home security footage

bobbi kristina nick gordon

While Bobbi Kristina remains in a coma in a hospital with failing organs and not much hope of ever waking up, the Houston and Brown families have been working to keep Nick Gordon, Bobbi’s fake-husband and possible abuser from seeing her. The police are also said to be investigating him for possible domestic violence, and Nick has been doing everything he can to avoid that questioning. He refused to speak to police in exchange for being allowed to see Bobbi, and he even went so far as to file a restraining order against the police to keep them from getting a hold of private security footage of his and Bobbi’s house. Which, you know, is not at all condemning!

However, Nick seems to have had a change of heart, since he likely realised that being scared shitless to let police see what actually went on in your house when your girlfriend nearly drowned to death (and pretty much did, if you look at it from another angle) probably doesn’t cast him in the best light.

After Gordon’s lawyers Joe S. Habachy and Randall M. Kessler filed the documents, however, a new statement to Us Weekly reveals that Gordon has since changed his mind, in an effort to comply with the police investigation.

“To protect his client’s interests, Mr. Habachy filed the Temporary Restraining Order. However, Mr. Gordon has since elected to dismiss the claim in an effort to help Roswell PD speed up their investigation,” the statement to Us reads.

In the initial filing, Gordon’s lawyer claimed that “The Search Warrant violates the Fourth Amendment in that it is overly broad and seeks private data ‘without limitation,’ and fails to narrowly limit the scope of the data sought by date or other characteristics.” The decision to seek a temporary restraining order came after Gordon received notice from Nest Labs that it had “received ‘legal process’ for data and documents related to the account and that it intended to comply.”

Huh. I don’t see anything good coming from any of this, to be honest. Why is this guy such an asshole and what exactly does he have to hide? Also, if he bought himself some extra time before turning over this footage, can’t he have theoretically destroyed the incriminating bits to spare himself?
