LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — “Dr. Phil” will air what the TV show is describing as an “intervention” conducted with Nick Gordon, the partner of hospitalized Bobbi Kristina Brown .
In a release Thursday, the show said Gordon and his mother, Michelle, described him as haunted by what happened to Brown and the similar tragedy that befell her mother, the late Whitney Houston.
Brown, the daughter of Houston and singer Bobby Brown, was discovered face-down in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31. She remains on life support in an Atlanta hospital.
“Dr. Phil” spoke with Gordon and his mother in Atlanta on Thursday about Bobbi Kristina for an episode scheduled to air March 11. (KCAL9, 3 p.m.)
Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in about a foot of water in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton hotel on Feb. 11, 2012, just before a Clive Davis pre-Grammys party.
“As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance. When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, ‘Mom, why couldn’t I do it? I couldn’t get air into her lungs,’ ” his mother said. “He won’t let go of the guilt.”
Gordon said he has suffered mental anguish and panic attacks since Brown was found, and over Houston’s death.
Bobbi Kristina turned 22 Wednesday.
