nick gordon talks bobbi kristina drowning

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:

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.PrinceSad SadFamilyAddictionControversy

Get the details here.

Following Prince's sad passing, everyone has been speculating about what exactly caused the legendary singer to meet his untimely end.

And since it could take weeks for the star's autopsy results to come back, rumors are running rampant about his cause of death.

In the week before he died, the musician's plane had to make an emergency landing. While his rep insisted it was because he was feeling ill with the flu, other reports claim the artist had overdosed on Percocet.

Prince's Sister Tyka Nelson Files Docs To Become The 'Special Administrator' Of His Estate Amid News Of No Will

| Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.PrinceSad SadFamily

We can't say we're surprised.

According to legal docs, Prince's only full-blooded sister Tyka Nelson has filed to be the "special administrator" of his estate. It's a common move when the deceased has no will or an executor of their estate.

Declaring her position as "special administrator", Tyka stated:

"I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form."

Well, it kinda of makes sense the legend wouldn't have a will considering he was only 57-years-old when he passed.

If you're wondering what a "special administrator" means, it basically allows the person to make decisions as to how the estate will be divided and managed. At this time, T.N. has listed herself and the singer's half-siblings John, Norrine, Sharon, Alfred, and Omarr as beneficiaries. The icon also has two half-siblings who are deceased — but under Minnesotan law their family members aren't entitled to any assets.

In an interesting turn of events, the estranged sis also went on to add in her filing:

"The decedent has heirs whose identities and addresses need to be determined."

Hmm… what does this exactly mean? Does Prince have family members that we don't know about?

As for who will serve as the official administrator of the estate, Ms. Nelson named Bremer Trust, National Association. Bremer has worked for the musician for years and is very knowledgeable with his financial affairs.

We're interested to see how all of this will play out considering Tyka was estranged from her brother for a long time. We'll keep you updated as we receive more information.
