Attorneys for Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, said in a statement Sunday that they have advised him not to meet "conditions" that Brown's father, Bobby Brown, has set for Gordon if he wishes to visit the 21-year-old in the hospital.
"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," Gordon's attorneys, Randall M. Kessler and Joe S. Habachy said. The statement did not elaborate on what the conditions were.
The statement said Gordon has "repeatedly offered" to meet with Brown to speak in person, rather than through lawyers, but Brown has denied his plea. "We hope Mr. Brown has a change of heart," the statement said.
The statement followed an earlier statement from Bobby Brown's lawyers, which said Gordon's claims that Brown is preventing him from visiting his girlfriend's bedside are false. "Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit," the statement said. "We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to this investigation," Brown's lawyers added.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston, was found unconscious in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31. Police have said that Gordon was performing CPR on Brown when first responders arrived. Gordon was taken in by Houston at the age of 12, but he was never legally adopted, and after her death, Gordon and Brown allegedly became engaged. Bobby Brown adamantly insists that the two are not married.
