Los Angeles, June 27 (IANS) Baseball player Nick Gordon has claimed that his late girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown struggled so much with her mother Whitney Houston’s heartbreaking death, she even grew “terrified” of bathing.
Houston and her daughter both passed away after being found unconscious in a bathtub, just three years apart, and Gordon was there on both occasions.
“She (Bobbi Kristina) was too terrified to bathe alone after Whitney passed, we both were. It’s why this is so messed up,” Gordon told The Sun newspaper, reports mirror.co.uk.
Bobbi Kristina spent six months fighting for her life in a coma after she was discovered face-down in a bathtub at the start of 2015.
She died on July 26 of that year, and an autopsy has since ruled that a fatal cocktail of marijuana, alcohol and anxiety drugs led to her drowning.
Now Gordon has claimed he was there when both her, and her mother, passed away – and insisted he gave Bobbi CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) until the ambulance arrived.
“She wasn’t breathing so I gave her mouth-to-mouth. Three minutes in she spat out some water and that motivated me to keep going. It was the hardest and saddest thing I have ever done,” he said.
