Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Brown were never married. A statement confirming this was released to the media by Bobby Brown's lawyer. In light of the recent incident that left Bobbi Kristina Brown in a hospital fighting for her life, it seems her father is intent on setting the record straight.

Access Hollywood reports that the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown is still hospitalized. She was found face down in her bath tub on Saturday.

“We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina," Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC, Bobby Brown's lawyer, said in a statement on Tuesday evening. “To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”

Nick Gordon was raised by Whitney Houston, but she never adopted him. Members of Whitney's family, including her mother and Bobbi Kristina's grandmother, Cissy Houston, never approved of Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina's relationship. Might this be why Bobby Brown had his lawyer release a statement indicating that the two never married? Was he displeased with their relationship as well?

Bobby Brown released his second statement to the media since arriving at Bobbi Kristina's bed side.

“We continue to request privacy in this matter. Please allow for our family to deal with this matter and give Bobbi Kristina the love and support she needs at this time," his statement read.

The Houston family also released a statement on Monday.

"Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family," their statement read. "As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."

Why do you suppose Bobbi Kristina Brown claimed she and Nick Gordon were married? And why is it so important to Bobby Brown for everyone to know that they aren't?
