Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend begs to see her


Nick Gordon hasn't given up badgering and begging to see Bobbi Kristina Brown, his erstwhile girlfriend still lingering in a Georgia rehab facility after suffering severe brain damage.

Gordon issued a statement Monday through his lawyer, Randall Kessler of Atlanta, that once again expressed his frustration at being blocked by her relatives from seeing her.

Bobbi Kristina, 22, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston, was found unresponsive and face down in a bathtub in the Roswell, Ga., home she shared with Gordon on Jan. 31, and has been in a coma for most of the last three months.
