Earlier this week, Gordon had a sit-down with Dr. Phil in Atlanta, Georgia, and according to TMZ, Gordon went expecting an interview, but it was really an intervention organized by his mother and the famed psychologist.
TMZ reports that during filming, Gordon spoke about contemplating suicide — something he previously tweeted about — if Bobbi Kristina’s situation did not improve. And Gordon’s mother allegedly thinks that her son is battling depression and has been using drugs.
The New York Daily News elaborated on the reports, as a source told them that things are really bad in Gordon’s life right now.
“Hopefully he’s in rehab right now. He got in [a] car from the hotel with his mom,” the source said. “Things got really bad with him. This was about saving his life.”
The source went on to explain that Gordon has reportedly been drowning his sorrows with whiskey and Xanax, and is believed to be seeking treatment for that as well as his suicidal thoughts.
It is unclear where Gordon is seeking treatment and for how long. But if the reports are true, we hope that he gets the help he needs.
