While Bobbi Kristina’s current condition remains unknown, there is one thing that’s clear: Bobbi Kristina and her “husband” Nick Gordon were never actually married, ABC News reports.
“We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina,” Christopher Brown, legal counsel to her father, Bobby Brown, said. “To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”
This news comes just a few days after Gordon and a friend found Bobbi Kristina unconscious in a bathtub at her home. Since then, she has been hospitalized, placed under an induced coma and is still unresponsive. Her family, including her father, have been keeping vigil by her side.
Bobbi Kristina has had to defend her relationship with Gordon since the beginning. She surprised everyone when just eight months after Whitney Houston’s death, she began dating the man believed to be her brother. A few months later in 2013, Bobbi Kristina posted a picture of their wedding bands on Twitter and wrote that she and Gordon were “happily married.”
Bobbi Kristina refers to Gordon as her “loving” and “incredible” husband on Instagram, where she’s even written her last name as “Gordon.” Despite the publicity of her relationship and her hospitalization, her family is requesting privacy at this time while Bobbi Kristina fights for her life.
“We continue to request privacy in this matter,” Bobby Brown said in a statement. “Please allow for our family to deal with this matter and give Bobbi Kristina the love and support she needs at this time.”
