Nick Gordon is NOT taking legal action to be able to see Bobbi Kristina Brown in the hospital, despite a claim from her cousin Jerrod Brown. See statement and video below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Brown remains on a ventilator in Atlanta in a medically-induced coma, though there have been conflicting accounts as to whether she’s improving. With the exact cause of Brown’s medical emergency still unknown, suspicion has grown around Gordon, who was previously believed to be her husband, until a lawyer for Bobby Brown said last week that the two never actually married.

Though Brown’s mother Whitney Houston raised Gordon like a son, he clashed with both the Houstons and the Browns in the wake of the superstar’s death, with Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law, even taking out a restraining order against him at one point. Now Jerrod Brown, who has been posting updates on Facebook throughout this ordeal, confirms that Gordon is not currently allowed to visit his girlfriend in the hospital.

“He’s taking legal action in that matter to get visits to see Krissy right now,” Jerrod tells Atlanta’s NBC 11Alive news station. He further claims he’s been in contact with Gordon, serving as a liaison of sorts between him and the Browns. “We sit there and we talk about several things — how he’s dealing with the situation, what he would like my family to know, and what he would love for Krissy to know, and that is that he loves Krissy and he’s just waiting for her to wake up,” says Jerrod.

But in a statement released Thursday night, attorneys for Gordon say it is NOT true that he is taking legal action to gain hospital access. “In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like it to be clear, he is not. Mr. Gordon’s only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina,” say his two lawyers. “He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon. Despite the incredible public interest, we ask and hope that this request can be resolved privately by Mr. Gordon and the family.”

But how is Gordon doing? Jerrod claims, “To be honest with you, Nick is feeling very emotional right now behind all of this. He’s pretty torn, he’s pretty torn up about everything that’s going on.” The criminal investigation into what happened between Brown, and whether Gordon committed any foul play, is ongoing, though police have not publicly named him as a person of interest. Previous reports have said Brown and Gordon had a history of domestic violence, and officials were trying to find out why she had facial injuries when she was taken to the hospital.

“At this moment right now, I’m not in the business of pointing fingers. [The public] is about guilty until proven innocent. Well, right now, everybody’s innocent until proven guilty to me,” says Jerrod, adding, “The only thing I really care about is the well-being of my cousin.” In the on-camera interview, Jerrod also denies the family plans to remove life support, saying, “We wouldn’t do that,” and claims they want to take her off the ventilator to breathe on her own.

Still, he acknowledges, “The act of her being well again would definitely be a miracle.” Watch below. Gossip Cop will have continue to have updates.
