Nick Gordon never got a chance to reunite with Bobbi Kristina Brown after he was banned from her bedside in February, and he learned about her death on the internet, just like the rest of the world. Now, he's begging permission from Bobby Brown to attend her funeral on Saturday in Atlanta and get some closure on the tragedy. According to TMZ, Gordon sent Brown and Pat Houston, who is managing funeral arrangements, an impassioned email seeking their blessing to say his goodbyes to his former girlfriend.
"I'm begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance," he allegedly wrote, adding, "Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."
The 25-year-old, who is a "person of interest" in a homicide investigation of Brown's death, was seen looking somber outside of his Florida home just hours after the music scion passed. His mother Michelle Gordon was at his side. He wore his engagement ring around on a chain around his neck.

"The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family," Michelle said in a statement on July 27. "Nick loved and cared for Krissy deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they've been apart. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time."
Last month, Gordon was sued for $10 million by Brown's conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, on her behalf. Court documents allege that Gordon assaulted Brown hours before she was found unresponsive in her bathtub on January 31. The suit also claims Gordon withdrew more than $10,000 from Brown's bank account without her permission while she lay unconscious in the hospital.
