Nick Gordon begs Bobbi Kristina's family to let him visit

Bobbi Kristina Brown's beau Nick Gordon says in a newly released statement that he's stayed away out of respect for both sides of her family but now implores them to let him visit.

Bobbi Kristina's dad Bobby Brown and aunt Pat Houston have been named her co-guardians; presumably they'd both have to OK the visit.

Bobbi Kristina has been hospitalized since a Jan. 31 medical emergency and her grandmother, Cissy Houston, has said the 22-year-old is "not progressing at all."

"Despite his strong desire to see Bobbi Kristina, Nick has respected the families' wishes for over 3 months and has refrained from visiting or from pursuing access to her through the courts," read the statement, issued by Nick's attorneys. "He has asked through counsel many times privately and now asks both the Browns and the Houstons, please let him see her."

Nick has begun reaching out following a stint in rehab after an interview turned intervention on the “Dr. Phil” show.

Dr. Phil said Nick Gordon was “high as a kite” during the interview, which was conducted earlier this year 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.

It’s unclear how warmly Nick might be received by his girlfriend’s family, though. Bobbi Kristina’s aunt blasted Nick’s visit with Dr. Phil.
