Nick Gordon checked into rehab shortly after taping a Dr Phil interview on Friday – an interview that was more like an intervention to get him into a treatment facility.
According to TMZ, Gordon was so wasted on drugs and alcohol during the interview that he could barely form coherent sentences. His mother, who did most of the talking, told Phil that her son is severely depressed and has been abusing anti-anxiety drug Xanax as well as alcohol.
In the interview, Gordon reportedly told Phil that he may commit suicide if his ‘wife’ Bobbi Kristina does not wake up from coma. The promo video (below) shows a crying Gordon saying, ‘I miss Krissi and Whitney so much… I want them back!’ and ‘I hate Bobby Brown!’
After Phil told him, ‘I want you to go straight to rehab,’ Gordon replied, ‘I’m done with the interview,’ before getting up and walking out. TMZ reports that on his way out, Gordon punched two of Dr Phil’s staff.
His rehab stay was paid for by Dr Phil’s show.
