Brown con­fided in friend

Texts re­veal her fears

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

BOBBI Kristina Brown was des­per­ately reach­ing out for help only days be­fore she was found un­con­scious in a bath­tub, re­ports say.

Ac­cord­ing to Radar Online, the 22- year- old daugh­ter of singer Whit­ney Hous­ton was liv­ing in fear of her boyfriend, 25- year- old Nick Gor­don, for months be­fore the tragic evening in Jan­uary.

She al­legedly con­fessed this to a trusted friend – who de­clined to be named – only days be­fore the tragic night that has seen her fight­ing for life.

“Hey baby I miss you so much. Sorry I’ve been work­ing so much lately. I saw you called me last night,” Brown’s friend texted.

“Hey babe boo boo. Yeah I’m sad … It’s about Nick …” replied Brown.

The friend sent a mes­sage ask­ing what was wrong: “God … What’s wrong now baby? He doesn’t de­serve you boo.”

Brown replied: “Yeah I just se­ri­ously don’t know what to do about him. You know how he is. I care about him but I’m so sick of the fight­ing and him telling me what I can and can’t do. Plus what I found out … I’m dev­as­tated … I need my BFF baby love.”

Sources close to Brown claimed that Gor­don’s “vi­o­lent out­bursts that turned phys­i­cal and abu­sive ... were all aimed at her”.

“She was also up­set that he’d text and flirt with other women, and she sus­pected that Nick was cheat­ing on her.”

Brown had planned to seek “safe haven” at a friend’s home, the source said.

Gor­don has since been in­ves­ti­gated by po­lice af­ter they found fa­cial in­juries on Brown, and slammed with a mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar law­suit. He also faces a po­ten­tial mur­der charge once Brown passes.

Bobbi Kristina, the only child of Hous­ton and singer Bobby Brown, has been in a med­i­cally in­duced coma since she was found un­re­spon­sive in a bath­tub in her Ge­or­gia home on Jan­uary 31. Re­ports in­di­cate she and Gor­don had a fight an hour be­fore she was found.
