Nick Gordon lawyers say he "desperately wants to be with" his love Bobbi Kristina Brown

Bobbi Kristina Brown's longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon is apparently missing her terribly and making quiet efforts to be with her.
"Nick has been trying privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively," Gordon's lawyers Randall Kessler and Joe Habachy told ABC News in a statement.
"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 relationship with the Brown family has reportedly been very tense, as he's been at the center of the criminal investigation stemming from late January when Bobbi Kristina, 21, was found face down and unresponsive in their home's bathtub with questionable injuries on her body. Gordon also has a history of domestic violence.
Bobbi Kristina's friend Max Lomas found her in the tub and Gordon, 25, tried to revive her before she was rushed to a hospital in Roswell, GA. She was later taken to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta where she could receive the best neurological treatment. Bobbi Kristina has been there ever since in a coma and on life support.
Gordon and Bobbi Kristina had previously said they wed last year but the legal team for her father Bobby Brown corrected reports by saying the couple is not officially married, ABC News reported.
Kessler released a statement on behalf of Gordon on February 13 shooting down rumors he's taking legal action for rights to be by Bobbi Kristina's hospital bedside.
Gordon and Bobbi Kristina began dating shortly after her mother Whitney Houston died in 2012. Prior to their romantic involvement, Gordon had reportedly lived with Houston and her family for almost 10 years.
