Nick Gordon’s Dr. Phil interview turns into an “emotionally charged intervention,” according to a preview for the show posted to YouTube on Friday.
The preview for the episode, which will air on Wednesday, depicts a tearful Gordon. Gordon tells Dr. Phil that he wants Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown back, and that he hates Bobby Brown. When Dr. Phil brings up Gordon’s battle with drugs and alcohol, Gordon eventually walks out. Gordon’s mother is present during the interview.
Leolah, Bobby Brown’s sister, spoke out in a Facebook post Saturday after the Dr. Phil preview was posted. Leolah claims that Gordon is being investigated for “attempted murder” and that there is “strong evidence of foul play.” She addressed the post to Dr. Phil, asking him not to give Gordon a “platform to spin this situation to his benefit” until the investigation has come to a close. E! has also confirmed that Gordon has checked himself into rehab.
The interview will air while Bobbi Kristina remains in the hospital. Gordon has been vocal via Twitter about not being able to visit her in the hospital. He wished her a happy 22nd birthday via Twitter last week, and his relationship with Bobby Brown remains on the rocks.
