This is so intense.

On Wednesday, Nick Gordon opened up about his late love Bobbi Kristina's tragic drowning which led to her eventual death months later. How sad!

As you may know, back in January 2015, the R&B scion was found face down and unresponsive in the bathtub — which is eerily similar to the same way her mother Whitney Houston died. In a sit down with DailyMail, Nick emotionally talked about what exactly went down the hours before B.K.'s passing and about their drug use as a couple.

He shared:

"I blame myself for not getting to Krissy quick enough that day. I can't blame myself for another addict's addiction but I feel like I failed her. She didn't make it. I wish she got help. I wish she got my spot [in rehab]. I did not protect her the way that I was supposed to – even if it was from herself."

In case you forgot, Nick sought treatment after Dr. Phil held an intervention for him last year. The late celebutante's fiancé is slated to appear on the celebrity doctor's show again this Thursday and Friday.

In addition to his addiction problems, Nick has been under intense scrutiny for his actions surrounding Krissy's tragic accident. While the police cannot determine another person was involved in causing Bobbi's death, her father Bobby Brown is convinced that Nick is to blame for her demise. Gordon has since called this lawsuit "bullsh*t".

In regards to the hours leading up to Miz Brown's death, Nick explained:
