Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Brown
Nick Gordon was reportedly "volatile" during his interview with Dr. Phil.
The 64-year-old psychiatric expert, who recently flew to Atlanta to stage an intervention for the 25-year-old star, admits Nick wasn't sober during their upcoming TV special, but he is now seeking treatment in a rehab facility.
He also claims Nick is dealing with "an enormous amount of guilt and pain" as his girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown continues to fight for her life at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after being found unresponsive in her bathtub on January 31.
Dr. Phil joined Nick's mother, Michelle, to stage the intervention, which was captured on camera and is set to air on CBS in the US tomorrow (11.03.15), according to UsMagazine.com.
Asked about how Nick is doing, he said: "[He was] clearly in an altered state of consciousness. I asked him if he was sober, and he said 'No.' "
But he insists the meeting was successful, adding: "[It] got [Nick] safely tucked away and into rehab."
Bobbi Kristina's aunt, Leolah Brown, recently slammed the upcoming TV show, claiming Nick is being investigated for "attempted murder" and it could interfere with police investigations.
Writing on Facebook, she said: "Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobbi Kristina Brown.
"We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit."
