Bobbi Kristina’s Aunt Urges Dr. Phil to Stay Away From Nick Gordon!
On Saturday, March 7, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, Leolah Brown posted an open letter on Facebook urging Dr. Phil to stay away from Nick Gordon as he is allegedly under investigation for the attempted murder of Bobbi Kristina.
Brown’s open letter follows Gordon’s recent sit-down interview with Dr. Phil—-to air on March 11—where he claims to have suffered intense emotional distress after finding Bobbi Kristina lying unconscious in her bathtub on Jan 31st.
Gordon’s mother, Michelle also appeared in the sit-down, claiming that her son is mentally drained by the tragic incidents surrounding Bobbi Kristina and still suffers with the death of Bobbi’s late mother, Whitney Houston.
"He won't let go of the guilt," Michelle told Dr. Phil in the interview.
In addition to his Dr. Phil interview, Gordon also took to Twitter earlier this week to vent about the pain he is feeling about Bobbi Kristina’s comatose state at the hospital. He even suggested hurting and/or killing himself.
"I'm so hurt I wanna do myself in, I know I have to strong," he tweeted.
Since his interview and his tweets, Gordon has checked himself into rehab, but it seems that Bobbi Kristina’s family—-particularly her aunt, Leolah—-is not buying Gordon’s public grieving.
According to Leolah Brown’s Facebook letter, Gordon is suspected of foul play in the near fatal drowning of Bobbi Kristina.
“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,” Leolah writes to Dr. Phil, adding, “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.”
In a second Facebook message, Leolah Brown also slammed critics and tabloids that have tried to publicly shame and slander her family’s name.
“Don't try to make my family look so bad so that others who are fake and malicious can continue to shine in a dark world! Kick Rocks! The devil has always been a dam liar, a dam thief and a dam murderer! Now let the dam games begin and I promise you I will finish it properly,” she wrote. “I am no longer standing down while allowing my family name to go in the mud while doing nothing about it. I have every right in the world to defend my family. We have children too! Children that see & hear all of the crap they pull. Therefore, I will continue to be a fighter that MY CHILDREN may be as well when I leave here. It is better for one to simply try to correct the differences in YOUR family and leave mine alone. Peace.”
So far, neither Gordon nor Dr. Phil has responded to Leoloah’s letter.
