Bobbi Kristina's beau Nick Gordon speaks out after rehab

Bobbi Kristina Brown's beau Nick Gordon has resumed his social media presence following a stint in rehab.

"Back like I left something," he posted following a lengthy hiatus. More recently he posted the "serenity prayer" that recovering addicts may be familiar with.

Nick entered rehab after an interview with Dr. Phil that turned into an intervention. Dr. Phil said Nick Gordon was “high as a kite” during the interview, which was conducted in Atlanta.

“You’re out of control," Dr. Phil told Nick. "Get some help because if you don’t, you know you’re going to wind up dead.”

Nick evidently took his advice. His brother Jack Walker recently told “Extra’s” AJ Calloway that he'd turned his life around.

“He’s been off of drugs for almost seven weeks,” Walker said. “He’s actually surprised that he stayed, to be honest with you, he’s like I’m proud of myself for staying I didn’t think that I’d be able to do it, he’s not the same person he was when he went in.”

Nick's relationship with Bobbi Kristina's family members didn't exactly warm up when he went on television, though. Bobbi Kristina’s aunt blasted Nick's visit with Dr. Phil.

Bobbi Kristina, 22, has been hospitalized since a Jan. 31 medical emergency.
