Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Brown
Nick Gordon is in "constant prayer" for Bobbi Kristina Brown and is hoping to be reunited with her "soon".
The 'husband' of the 21-year-old aspiring actress - who is fighting for her life in hospital after being found face down in her bathtub on January 31 - is desperately hoping the star will get better, but insists he is not taking legal action to gain access to her hospital bedside.
His attorneys said in a statement: "In response to reports that Nick Gordon is taking legal action, he would like it to be clear, he is not. Mr. Gordon's only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina.
"He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon. Despite the incredible public interest, we ask and hope that this request can be resolved privately by Mr. Gordon and the family."
The statement comes after Bobbi's cousin Jerod Brown suggested Nick was preparing to seek legal action to gain access to her beside at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, and the family member claimed Nick has not been allowed to visit her in the medical facility.
Speaking about whether Nick has access to Bobbi's hospital bedside, Jerod told news channel 11Alive: "At the moment, he's not. I'm in contact with Nick. To be honest with you, Nick is feeling very emotional right now behind all of this. He's pretty torn about about what's going on.
"We sit down and talk about things he wants my family to know and what we would love for Krissy to know, and that is that he loves her and is just waiting for her to wake up."
Jerod also insisted Bobbi's family would never turn off her life support machine.
He added: "We wouldn't do that to Krissy. I wouldn't want someone to do that to me if I was in that situation.
"The act of being well again would be a miracle. Right now, we have the chance to save Bobbi Kristina and the best way we can save her right now if through prayer."
Nick was unofficially adopted by Bobbi's late mother Whitney Houston 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 insisted they have not tied the knot.
Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC told said in a statement: "We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalisation of Bobbi Kristina.
"To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon."
