Following the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown on Sunday, July 26, Nick Gordon’s mom, Michele Gordon, spoke out on her son’s behalf on Monday, alleging that he has “suffered greatly” after his longtime love was hospitalized this past January, and he subsequently went to rehab.
“The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family,” Michele said in a statement to Us Weekly on July 27. “Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they’ve been apart. Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time.”
