Nick Gordon's visit with Dr. Phil called "explosive"

The Dr. Phil show publicists are billing Wednesday's visit with Bobbi Kristina's beau Nick Gordon as "explosive."

The Dr. Phil show released this publicity photo to promote Nick Gordon's appearance. The interview was conducted recently in Atlanta.

Nick is "despondent and desperate" as Bobbi Kristina, who just turned 22, remains hospitalized.

The visit starts as an interview and becomes an intervention. Dr. Phil "offers him the treatment he desperately needs as he battles depression and drug and alcohol addictions," the show advertises.

"With his mother Michelle having flown to Atlanta to be at his side, Gordon expresses the severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering since Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in January, and also over the tragic loss of legendary singer Whitney Houston three years ago," the promo reads.

Here are some quotes from the visit:

“I lost the most legendary singer ever and I’m scared to lose Krissy. I want to let all you guys know I did everything possible in the world to protect them.” – Nick Gordon.

“Nick, you’re out of control. You’ve threatened suicide. You deserve to get some help because if you don’t, you know you’re going to wind up dead.” – Dr. Phil to Nick Gordon.

“Nicholas is at a breaking point. He cannot bear not being with Krissy by her side. He’s dealing with it by drinking. I’ve begged him to stop and it doesn’t help.” – Nick Gordon’s mother Michelle.

The episode airs Wednesday. Check DrPhil.com for local listings.
