Bobby Brown and Nick Gordon release counter statements about Bobbi Kristina Brown visitation
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/23/2015
Bobby Brown has spoken out about Nick Gordon's claims he's been denied the chance to visit his longtime girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown at Emory University Hospital while she remains in a coma and on life support.
Gordon's lawyers expressed last week how Gordon has been trying privately to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively.
"He has respected the family's wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted," Gordon's lawyers had toldUs Weekly.
On Saturday, February 21, Gordon tweeted his urgency to spend time with Bobbi Kristina.
"Let me in the hospital to see my girl and let her hear my voice SHE WILL WAKE UP!!! @REALbkBrown @YFKennedy," Gordon tweeted. "If she hears MY voice let me massage her, play her favorite music I believe it will help. If you ask Bobby anything abt he cannot answer."
Bobby's legal counsel Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC released a media statement almost immediately afterwards suggesting Gordon is fabricating lies.
"To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon's requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit. We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to this investigation," Christopher said, according to Us.
"Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe. The numerous fictional reporting involving Bobbi Kristina continues and Bobby Brown's request for privacy clearly has not been heard by all members of the media. Unfortunately, sensationalism remains high as various news affiliates appear determined to undermine the criminal investigation with its erroneous reporting."
Christopher concluded the statement by continuing to "request privacy in this matter" and thanking everyone for their support.
"God is hearing our prayers," Christopher added on Bobby's behalf.
Bobbi Kristina underwent a tracheotomy last week in order to prevent an infection from her breathing tube. She was found face down and unresponsive on January 31 in her home's bathtub. She remains in critical condition.
On Sunday, February 22, Gordon's lawyer Randall M. Kessler also released a statement in response to Bobby's latest comments.
"Bobby Brown has consistently prohibited Nick, who Bobbi Kristina would want by her side, from being there," Kessler countered.
"Per his own words, Mr. Brown has only 'offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina' if Nick were to meet certain conditions, conditions that we, his attorneys, have advised him not to meet, particularly in light of Mr. Brown's inability to guarantee access."
Kessler went on to say, "But in an effort to do all he can to visit, Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Mr. Brown privately to discuss his request in person, rather than through lawyers. Those offers have also been rejected. We hope Mr. Brown has a change of heart."
