Nick Gordon pleaded with Bobby Brown and Pat Houston for a chance to say goodbye to Bobbi Kristina Brown, however on Saturday at the funeral for Whitney Houston's daughter, he was nowhere to be seen.

Bobbi Kristina's life was celebrated at a funeral outside of Atlanta Saturday morning at the St. James Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. Grandmother Cissy Houston, aunt Pat Houston, father Bobby Brown and his wife Alicia Etheredge, and other members of the Brown and Houston families were present at the invitation-only funeral.

Nick Gordon was Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend and was raised for several years by Whitney Houston. At one point in time Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon referred to one another as husband and wife, but Bobby Brown claims no evidence was ever found that determined his daughter married Nick Gordon.

Guests for Bobbi Kristina Brown's funeral were led to the church in a motorcade procession escorted by local police officers. Fans and others not invited to the funeral lined the streets outside the church. Several streets in either direction were closed off to traffic, meaning fans walked in or arrived in the hours before the streets were closed.

Nick Gordon was named in a multi-million dollar civil suit just a couple of weeks ago, alleging he contributed to injuries that led to Bobbi Kristina Brown's death. In addition to not being allowed to say goodbye, he now must contend with being sued by her conservators.

Bobbi Kristina's body will next be flown to New Jersey, where she will be laid to rest on Monday beside Whitney Houston at a cemetery near Cissy Houston's home.

Do you expect Nick Gordon will find his way to New Jersey to say goodbye to Bobbi Kristina following her burial?
