CityPress - - News - – Staff re­porter

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend has begged her fa­ther for an in­vi­ta­tion to her fu­neral. The 22-year-old daugh­ter of the late songstress Whit­ney Hous­ton and her ex­hus­band, Bobby Brown, died in a US hos­pice this week af­ter six months in a coma.

Nick Gor­don has re­port­edly sent an email to Brown, say­ing he “needs to say good­bye” to Bobbi Kristina.

US en­ter­tain­ment web­site TMZ re­ported that in the email, copied to Bobbi Kristina’s aunt and fu­neral or­gan­iser Pat Hous­ton, Gor­don wrote: “I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am de­stroyed that she is gone. I need to say good­bye.

“I’m beg­ging you both to please put your dif­fer­ences aside and al­low me this chance. Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there.”

How­ever, Gor­don is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by po­lice in con­nec­tion with the death of Bobbi Kristina, who was buried next to her mother yesterday.

Bri­tish tabloid the Daily Mail re­ported that Gor­don al­legedly bought drugs for Bobbi Kristina on the day she was found face down in the bath at her home in Jan­uary, and now pros­e­cu­tors want to charge him with in­vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter.

Mean­while, well-known singer and Hous­ton’s aunt Dionne War­wick is re­port­edly fu­ri­ous that Pat Hous­ton is al­legedly plan­ning a sweet 16-themed fu­neral for Bobbi Kristina, and threat­ened to boy­cott the event.

The fam­ily is also re­port­edly at odds over her $20 mil­lion (R253.73 mil­lion) in­her­i­tance.

“Dionne is plan­ning a trip and threat­en­ing to not at­tend the fu­neral be­cause Pat Hous­ton is tak­ing over, even though she should be mak­ing de­ci­sions with Bobby [Brown] and not do­ing it on her own,” the Daily Mail re­ported.
