Nick Gordon was allegedly drunk and violent during an intervention staged by Dr. Phil last week, before the boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown entered rehab.

As Gossip Cop reported, Gordon sat down with Dr. Phil for what he believed would be an interview about Brown but was actually an intervention staged by Dr. Phil and Gordon’s mother Michelle, who said she feared for her son’s life due to his drug use and alleged suicidal thoughts. The filming took place at an Atlanta hotel, where Gordon was allegedly so drunk and high, he was unable to walk on his own and was instead pushed around on a luggage cart.

Gordon was allegedly incoherent for much of the interview, with TMZ sources blaming a combination of alcohol and Xanax. The site claims, however, that when Gordon realized the meeting was an intervention, he became violent and allegedly punched two “Dr. Phil” staffers. Ultimately, as Gossip Cop reported, Gordon entered a rehab facility after the taping.

According to CBS, the full “Dr. Phil” interview, which is slated to air on Wednesday’s episode, features Gordon discussing the “severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering” since Whitney Houston’s death and Brown’s medical emergency. The meeting is described as “emotionally charged,” with Gordon deemed “out of control.” TMZ previously reported that during the taping, Gordon threatened to kill himself if Brown did not recover.

Meanwhile, Brown’s aunt Leolah Brown posted an open letter to Facebook on Saturday, blasting Dr. Phil for giving Gordon “a platform to speak to anyone of your caliber” and “a platform to spin this situation to his benefit” as the investigation into what caused Brown’s health crisis continues. Gossip Cop has reached out to Gordon’s lawyer for comment on the allegations. We will continue to have updates.
