Dr. Phil tells Nick Gordon he's "out of control" and must seek help

Did you watch Bobbi Kristina's beau Nick Gordon share all on Dr. Phil today?

“Nick, you’re out of control," the no-nonsense Dr. Phil told him at one point. "You’ve threatened suicide. You deserve to get some help because if you don’t, you know you’re going to wind up dead.”

Nick's mother Michelle joined him.

"Nicholas is at a breaking point," she said. "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."

Dr. Phil recommended rehab to the volatile Nick, who appeared high strung and very emotional during the interview, which was conducted in Atlanta.

Following the encounter Dr. Phil revealed that he though Nick was "high as a kite" the whole time.
