Nick Gordon Pleads to Attend Bobbi Kristina’s Funeral
Memorial services have been planned for this weekend at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, for Bobbi Kristina Brown, and Nick Gordon has reached out to father Bobby Brown and aunt Pat Houston to ask for their permission to pay his last respects after her family banned him from visiting Bobbi Kristina in the hospital.
In an email sent on Thursday, July 30, 2015, and obtained by People, he writes, “I’m asking you both for your blessing in regards to me attending Krissi’s funeral. I do not want to cause any trouble or commotion so I’m emailing you privately in advance.”
“I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye. I’m begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance. Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there. Please consider this?”
“You are both in my daily prayers. I know you are suffering. May God bless you both and heal your hearts. God bless, Nick Gordon.”
Bobbi Kristina’s body is expected to be flown to New Jersey after Saturday’s funeral so she can be buried next to her mother at Fairview Cemetery on Monday, August 3, 2015.
Houston, who was laid to rest next to her father, John Russell Houston, died in similar circumstances in the bathroom of a Beverly Hills hotel suite in 2012, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
Gordon is facing a $10 million lawsuit from Bobbi Kristina’s court-appointed conservator, who filed papers in June 2015 and accused him of assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The papers also allege Gordon transferred money from his girlfriend’s account without her permission while she was comatose in an Atlanta-area hospital.
