Nick Gordon has admitted that he has been contemplating suicide following the hospitalisation of his girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown. The troubled man was speaking in an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw, but their meeting soon turned into an intervention when the doctor could see how troubled Nick was.
New clips from the pre-recorded interview show Nick confessing that he has tried to take his own life.
"If anything happens to Krissy, I will," said Nick, who was being supported by his biological mother Michelle.

Nick also expressed his pain at having lost his adoptive mum Whitney Houston, who was also his partner Bobbi's real mum, and at the possibility of losing his girlfriend.
"I lost the most legendary singer ever and I'm scared to lose Krissy," said Nick. "I want to let all you guys know I did everything possible in the world to protect them. I can't lose Krissy, I can't. I've been praying. I wake up in the middle of the night."
"I miss Krissy and Whitney so much, I want them back," he was heard saying in another segment.

Dr. Phil urged Nick to "man up" and seek professional help, prompting him to break down again. "I've been so strong for so many people for so long, so please don't tell me to man up," said Nick.
When Dr. Phil suggested he go to rehab, Nick, who admitted to drinking heavily and taking xanax, declared that he would. He was reported to have checked in to a facility on Sunday.

While it was previously thought that he and Bobbi were married, a lawyer for the Brown family confirmed that the heiress "is not and never has been married to Nick Gordon".
The man in question has a strained relationship with his girlfriend's family, and has been taking to Twitter to demand that the Browns let him visit Bobbi in hospital. Whitney's daughter was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home in late January. She is currently on life support.
The full interview with Nick will be aired on Thursday.
