Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away on Sunday, and her family is currently busy making preparations for her funeral, which is expected to take place in Georgia on Saturday. However, one person who may not be allowed to attend is her longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon.
According to TMZ, Gordon is so desperate to attend Bobbi Kristina’s funeral that he has sent an email to her father, Bobby Brown, begging for his permission. The gossip site has seen the email, in which Gordon writes, “I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye.”
Gordon is not exactly in the family’s good books right now as police continue to investigate the circumstances leading up to Bobbi Kristina’s death. Gordon realizes this, but he hopes the family can put their differences aside and allow him a “chance.”
“I’m begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance,” Gordon’s email to both Bobby Brown and Pat Houston reads — he copied Pat on the email because she’s apparently the one who is making the funeral arrangements.
“Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there,” he added.
It remains to be seen whether Nick will be allowed to attend Bobbi Kristina’s funeral, but the Daily Mail reports that there’s a lot of fighting going on behind the scenes. Pat Houston has reportedly planned a “sweet sixteen-themed funeral” for her niece, something that Whitney Houston’s cousin, Dionne Warwick, is not happy about.
“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 and not doing it on her own,” a source told the publication.
“Dionne resents Pat acting like she is the head of the Houston family when in reality she married into the family. Also everyone knows that Bobbi Kristina and Pat didn’t get along well after her mother died because she was trying to run her life and tell her what to do with the money she inherited.”
The source added, “Pat wants to have a ‘sweet sixteen’ theme funeral, but Dionne feels that is stupid and disrespectful to Bobbi Kristina.”
