In what is turning into a story more surreal by the day, Bobby Brown’s attorney says that the marriage between 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown (pictured right) and Nick Gordon (pictured left) last year was a sham.
“To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon,” attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement to Atlanta’s Fox 5, according to the New York Daily News.
Further, in what could be descirbed as an ominous tone, the lawyer says that the family is “currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina.”
There have whispers from the beginning that Gordon, 25, and the Houston and Brown family were at odds and have banned the 25-year-old from seeing his “wife,” possibly because Bobbi Kris and he were allegedly feuding in the weeks before her tragic accident—and possibly because of the company he keeps.
There are reports of a restraining order against Gordon, who is apparently barred from getting within 200 feet of the only child of legendary singer Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. It looks like the family intends to keep that order intact – by any means necessary.
Reports The News:
According to an eyewitness at the hospital, Gordon was physically escorted from the room after sneaking up the back stairs to see the woman he calls his wife.
“You could hear scuffling,” the witness said. “About maybe two to three minutes later, they came back with this person and they had their hands on him like holding onto him, and you could see everybody was distressed.
That “person” manhandled by security guards is allegedly Gordon, and the confrontation reportedly went down at the North Fulton Hospital in Roswell on the first night she was admitted. A hospital representative now confirms that Bobbi Kris has now transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta since Tuesday afternoon.
Bobbi Kristina has now been hospitalized for four days since Gordon and a friend, now identified as Maxwell Lomas, found her unconscious in a bathtub on Saturday morning. In what has universally described as “eerie,” Bobbi Kristina’s mother Whitney Houston died in a bathtub around this time three years ago, with a cocktail of drugs in her system.
There are now rumblings that Lomas, the “friend” who discovered Bobbi Kris with Gordon is in fact a drug dealer. According to the News, the 24-year-old Lomas “was arrested last month and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of the generic form of anti-anxiety drug Xanax and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies.”
Lomas was released on Jan. 18 on $15,000 bond, reports the paper.
