Nick Gordon has broken his silence for the first time since he found his girlfriend, Bobbi Kristina Brown, unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31. Gordon says he is praying for her, and denying reports that he is taking legal action to be able to see her after Brown's cousin Jerod Brown told the local news that Gordon was pursuing legal means after being barred by Brown's family.
"In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like it to be clear, he is not," attorney Randy Kessler says in a statement. "Mr. Gordon's only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina. He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon."
Kessler adds: "Despite the incredible public interest, we ask and hope that this request can be resolved privately by Mr. Gordon and the family."
As speculation continues as to what caused Brown, 21, to wind up face down and unconscious in her bathtub, on Thursday it was revealed that Whitney Houston's and Bobby Brown's daughter was involved in a car accident just four days prior to her hospitalization.
According to police, Brown was driving a Jeep Liberty when she lost control on January 27, crossing lanes into oncoming traffic. She hit another vehicle, which resulted in injuries for both the driver she hit and a passenger in her Jeep.
The Associated Press also reported on Thursday that Gordon had called 911 in July 2013, telling police that Bobbi fell and was unresponsive. The officer noted in the records that she was "disoriented."
Gordon, who is under criminal investigation for unexplained injuries found on Bobbi's body, has not returned to visit her at Emory for reasons that are not clear. Two days after Brown was admitted to the hospital, marijuana residue was found in a car in which Gordon was traveling, though no charges were filed over it and it's not clear whether or not Gordon is responsible for the residue.
Roswell Police also confirmed on Wednesday that Gordon and Brown's neighbor reported a domestic dispute at their address one week before Bobbi was found face down in the bathtub.
