We're so confused by what Nick Gordon's mom said about Whitney Houston's death

There's another new story line in the Bobbi Kristina Brown case that just isn't adding up.

During an interview with Dr. Phil, Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and his mother shared some stories that don't make any sense at all.

Nick's mom, Michelle, reportedly told the TV host that Nick was with Whitney Houston the night she died, in February of 2012, and that he found her unconscious and tried to administer CPR.

"As we sit here right now, my son's life hangs in the balance," Michelle said. "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.' He won't let go of the guilt."

But that claim doesn't make any sense. According to the autopsy report, Whitney was found Feb. 11, 2012, facedown in a bathtub full of water at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The report also says she was found by her assistant and bodyguard, who pulled her out of the water and asked hotel staff to call 911.

That isn't the only weird thing about the upcoming Dr. Phil interview, which is set to air March 11.

According to Extra, the interview will also serve as an intervention of sorts for Nick, who reportedly tells Dr. Phil about his mental anguish, guilt and panic attacks he's suffered since Whitney died and since Bobbi Kristina, his longtime girlfriend, was found in a similar manner: facedown and unconscious in a bathtub in her Atlanta, Georgia, home.

Bobbi Kristina has been hospitalized and kept in a medically induced coma in Atlanta since the incident. Tensions have been apparent between Nick and Bobbi Kristina's family and Nick has been unable to visit Bobbi Kristina in the hospital. Conflicting reports have claimed it's because the family won't let him, while others have said it's because he doesn't want to or refused to follow conditions set forth by Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown.
