Bobbi Kristina Brown's cousin defends Nick Gordon, says he's been 'exploited'
UPI News Service, 03/16/2015
Bobbi Kristina Brown's cousin Jerod Brown defended the ailing aspiring actress' boyfriend Nick Gordon on Sunday, claiming he has been "exploited" and "ridiculed" by the media.
"For the record: Nick has cooperated with the police department, he has cooperated with my uncle Bobby's request, he has given my family members as much information as he can," Jerod Brown wrote on Facebook days after Bobbi Kristina Brown's aunt, Leolah Brown, said Gordon was under investigation for the attempted murder of her niece.
Speaking on Brown's forthcoming interview with Dr. Phil -- for which he showed up intoxicated and distraught -- Jerod Brown said he had been "exploited on national television with hidden cameras that he had no idea about."
"He has given Kristina CPR which is one of the reasons why she is not dead till this day, he has been ridiculed and accused without any concrete evidence yet he still hasn't gotten the chance to visit his girl," Jerod Brown added. "If everyone truly believes that Nick is the blame for this situation wouldn't you think he would already be locked up by now ª#Facts¬."
Gordon has not been able to see Bobbi Kristina Brown at the hospital because he refuses to comply with her father Bobby Brown's stipulations. She's been in a medical induced coma since she was found unresponsive face down in a bathtub on Jan. 31.
Gordon was the unofficially adopted son of the late Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown's ex-wife. Houston accidentally drowned in a bathtub in 2012.
