Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon
Whitney Houston's family insist Nick Gordon has never tried to visit Bobbi Kristina Brown in hospital.
The late singer's relatives have hit back at her 21-year-old daughter's 'husband' after his lawyer, Randy Kessler, released a statement saying his client hasn't been allowed to see the aspiring singer, who is fighting for her life at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after being found face down in her bathtub on January 31.
A Houston family source says they are furious with Nick's lawyer for suggesting they banned him from visiting his ailing girlfriend, and claims he has never once tried to make his way inside the medical facility.
Nick was recently photographed in front of the hospital, but the insider told gossip website TMZ.com that it was just a publicity stunt and he never tried to enter the building.
Nick's lawyer claims his client tried to visit Bobbi and was blocked from doing so, but he also recently stated he has no plans to take legal action to gain access to her bedside.
Bobbi's cousin Jerod Brown previously suggested Nick was preparing to go to court in a bid to be granted access to her.
Nick was unofficially adopted by Whitney when he was 12 years old and he and Bobbi - whose father is Bobby Brown - claimed on Twitter in January 2014 that they had married, but her father's lawyer recently revealed they never legally tied the knot.
Police have launched a criminal investigation to find out what happened to Bobbi, who is said to be slowly making progress despite still being in a coma.
