Things are continuing to spiral out of control for Nick Gordon, the 25-year-old longtime love of Bobbi Kristina. Earlier this week, Gordon’s mother organized an intervention with Dr. Phil for her troubled son, and now, TMZ reports that he’s headed to rehab for drugs.
During the visit with Dr. Phil, Nick’s mother revealed that Nick is struggling with drug abuse and depression, pleading, “My son’s life hangs in the balance.” He also reportedly talked about committing suicide during the session.
There are very few details regarding Nick’s treatment, and he has yet to confirm the news himself. Recently, the 25-year-old has been in a public feud with Bobbi’s father, Bobby Brown, who has banned him from visiting the 22-year-old at the hospital.
Nick was on the scene when Bobbi was found facedown and unresponsive in her bathtub at the end of January, and says he tried to administer CPR before paramedics arrived. However, he is also at the center of a criminal investigation involving the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, due to unexplained injuries found on her body when help arrived.
