Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon broke his Twitter silence Sunday as the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston remains in the hospital for the third week. Gordon, who could be a suspect in Brown’s accident, took to Twitter to issue a statement over Valentine’s Day weekend.
“Thank you for all your prayers. She is a strong person and will pull through this. Continue to pray for her,” he wrote Sunday, and soon added, “Twice.” It was the first message Gordon, who was the unofficial adopted son of Houston, posted to his unverified Twitter account since Christmas. The message was liked 109 times and shared 59 times.
He also changed his Twitter profile picture to show a new tattoo. His girlfriend’s name, “Bobbi Kristina,” is boldly written across his left forearm.
Even though there were rumors Brown would be taken off life support at the end of the week, her father, Bobby Brown, issued a statement through his lawyer that revealed the contrary: The Browns and the Houstons are not giving up on the 21-year-old aspiring singer.
Brown's attorney Christopher Brown told E! News Monday that there is “nothing happening” and the reports are “false stories.” "We continue to request privacy in this matter," he said in a previous statement to E! News. "We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is healing our prayers."
Brown was rushed to the hospital after she was found face down and unconscious in a bathtub in her Georgia home Jan. 31. It’s an incident that’s eerily similar to Houston’s death after she was found dead in a bathtub in February 2012. Brown’s friend Maxwell Lomas found her and called authorities. Police have not officially named Lomas or Gordon as suspects.
