'Dr. Phil': To air 'intervention with Bobbi Brown's partner
Mar. 05, 2015
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Dr. Phil" will air what the TV show is describing as an "intervention" conducted with Nick Gordon, the partner of hospitalized Bobbi Kristina Brown .
In a release Thursday, the show said Gordon and his mother, Michelle, described him as haunted by what happened to Brown and the similar tragedy that befell the late Whitney Houston.
Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of Houston and singer Bobby Brown, was discovered face-down in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31. She remains on life support in an Atlanta hospital.
Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in about a foot of water in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton hotel on Feb. 11, 2012, just before the Grammys.
"As we sit here right now, my son's life hangs in the balance. When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, 'Mom, why couldn't I do it? I couldn't get air into her lungs,' " his mother said. "He won't let go of the guilt."
Gordon said he has suffered mental anguish and panic attacks since Brown was found, and over Houston's death.
"Dr. Phil" host Phil McGraw spoke with Gordon and his mother in Atlanta on Thursday about Bobbi Kristina Brown for an episode to air March 11.
