The episode airing Wednesday, per a CBS press release, will see Dr. Phil McGraw “offering Gordon the treatment he appears to so desperately need as he battles drug and alcohol addiction.”
Also appearing on the segment will be Gordon’s mother, Michelle.
“As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance,” says Michelle in her segment with Dr. Phil, according to the release.
Gordon, 22, will open up about the “severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks” he says that he has been experiencing ever since finding Bobbi Kristina, now 22, face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31.
“He won’t let go of the guilt,” reads Michelle’s statement.
Banned from the hospital by the Brown family, this isn’t the first time that Gordon has chosen a public venue to air his grievances and to beg to see his girlfriend. “Let me in the hospital to see my girl and let her hear my voice,” he Tweeted on Feb. 21. “SHE WILL WAKE UP!!!”
Following his pleas, Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, released a statement through his lawyers claiming that “Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit. Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe.”
Gordon’s lawyers responded in a statement of their own: “Per his own words, Mr. Brown has only ‘offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina’ if Nick were to meet certain conditions, conditions that we, his attorneys, have advised him not to meet, particularly in light of Mr. Brown’s inability to guarantee access.”
Brown’s lawyers fired back once again, implying that Gordon needed to explain exactly how Bobbi Kristina drowned before the Brown family would consider letting Gordon visit her bedside.
Nick Gordon’s appearance on The Dr . Phil Show airs Wednesday, March 11 (check local listings).
