Nick Gordon has returned to Twitter for the first time since the death of longtime girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown. The 22-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown died July 26 after being unresponsive for nearly six months. Gordon, 25, made his Twitter account private June 25 amid reports he had been sued by Brown’s conservator, Bedelia C. Hargrove, for contributing to her wrongful death. He has since made the account public, but he has remained silent -- until now.

Gordon took to Twitter Monday to express his feelings of loss. He shared how much he misses Brown and her mother with his followers in two brief messages. He called his former girlfriend his “best friend,” adding he still loves her and wishes he could bring her and Houston, who was 48 when she died in February 2012, back.

Gordon visited Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, Aug. 17, where the women are buried side-by-side. He reportedly was flown there “by some generous friends,” though no names were given. Shortly after he was granted an opportunity to say a proper goodbye to Brown, it was reported he had been paid for gravesite photos. It was believed an unnamed publication offered Gordon $40,000 to get the shots, all of which Page Six reported was going toward his legal fees. Sources told the publication Gordon was “broke” and could not afford a suitable legal team to fight the wrongful death suit against him.

One week before he was flown to New Jersey, Brown’s conservator filed an amendment to a pre-existing lawsuit. In it, she claimed Gordon gave Brown a “toxic cocktail” before putting her facedown in the bathtub in the Atlanta townhouse they shared. The amendment also included disturbing details of the alleged abuse Bobbi Kristina suffered at Gordon’s hand.

Gordon’s lawyers released a joint statement shortly after news broke that he may have received a paycheck for visiting Brown at Fairview Cemetery, slamming the reports as false. Both attorneys went on to call the lawsuit "baseless" and slanderous to their client. His reps further backed the statement from his lawyers, saying any reports Gordon had been paid to visit Brown's burial sight were "completely fabricated."
