Bobbi Kristina Brown has spent more than a month in a medically induced coma since being found unconscious in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia home. Now her boyfriend, the one she referred to as her husband, Nick Gordon, has entered rehab for drug and alcohol problems.
It was announced earlier this week that Nick Gordon would be filming an episode of The Dr. Phil Show. It seems the show's host, Dr. Phil McGraw, was able to convince Nick Gordon that he needed to go to rehab in light of recent tweets the doctor deemed suicidal.
The episode on which Nick Gordon appears is scheduled to air next week. Gordon has been distraught over not being allowed to visit Bobbi Kristina Brown in her hospital room. Bobby Brown and other members of Bobbi Kristina's family have banned him from her bedside. Do you think Nick Gordon shared all of this with Dr. Phil as they filmed next week's episode?

Bobby Brown hasn't made any direct statements to the media of late, but has issued a few through one of his attorneys. He made it quite clear in a recent statement that when Nick Gordon tells authorities exactly what happened to Bobbi Kristina Brown, he will consider allowing him to visit her in the hospital.
Authorities have maintained since the tragedy that Nick Gordon is under investigation. No one can say for sure how Bobbi Kristina Brown wound up facedown in the bathtub. It's likely that someone knows what she was doing in the hours leading up to her discovery there, but no one has yet come forth.
Do you think Nick Gordon going to rehab is a strong indication that both he and Bobbi Kristina Brown had drug and alcohol issues? Might a stint in rehab prevent him from meeting a similar fate?
Will you tune in next week to see Dr. Phil convince Nick Gordon to go to rehab?
