What a relief!
Given the freaky circumstances, RiRi and Elliott were terribly concerned.

This is big news!!
The first ever documentary on Whitney Houston that is being officially authorized by her estate is in the works, with Kevin Macdonald at the helm set to direct!
The filmmaker has apparently been given "unprecedented" levels of access to Whitney's closest family and friends, alongside hours and hours of never before seen video from the singer's life, from childhood all the way through stardom.
The film is also set to include an interview with Clive Davis, the founder and head honcho at Arista Records and one of the chief execs at Sony's music label, who is widely regarded as the man who first brought Houston on to the national scene.
Macdonald, who has already won an Oscar for the powerful terrorism documentary One Day In September, said of his motivation centering on Whitney in the project:
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.
"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:
While there is a lot of speculation around Bobbi's boyfriend Nick Gordon possibly being involved in her death in some way, an autopsy report found no evidence that he was involved.
Gordon's legal team already responded to the findings, but the 20-year old is still looking to clear his name as he's set to appear on Dr. Phil again.
Bobbie's boyfriend previously sat down with the good doctor shortly after his girlfriend was found unconscious and had an incredibly emotional interview where he threatened suicide. This time around, things are just as intense as Phil asks the young man straight up if he murdered Bobbi Kristina!
Ch-ch-check out a preview for Gordon's interview with Dr. Phil (below)!
The book titled Every Little Step will be released this June — just weeks before the one year anniversary of B.K.'s tragic death at the age of 22.
The 47-year-old told ABC News on Friday:
"Writing this book has been a therapeutic process for me. Getting it all out has allowed me to move on with my life."
In addition to sharing stories about his life and career in the memoir, Bobby will also sit down for an at-length interview with Robin Roberts for a special edition of 20/20 — also set to air in June.
While this is certainly a very touchy subject considering Bobbi's death is still under investigation, we are very curious to see what her father has to say.
Will U be picking up a copy, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Teach the children, Bey!
As such, Blue Ivy's momma took part in El Lay's Center for Early Education's 75th Anniversary Gala on Saturday and actually performed a number of songs for the children and partygoers!
But not only did she do her own original music… she covered the one and only Whitney Houston, too!
Bey has done I Will Always Love You before, so while this wasn't a once-in-a-lifetime moment, we sure are jealous we weren't there to experience it.
We think Whitney would be proud.
Ch-ch-check out video of Queen Bey's powerful performance (below)!!!
We always knew he'd be a star!
Dalton Rapattoni is already a front-runner on this final season of American Idol and we can't help but feel slightly responsible for his polished talent.
After being one of the only four contestants actually voted into the finals — as opposed to a Wild Card slot — Dalton went with Imagine Dragon's Radioactive to propel himself into next week.
Let's just say, we're certainly feeling the heat radiating of his body right now! LOLz!
Bobbi Kristina's cause of death has been confirmed.
On Friday, the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office revealed in a statement that Whitney Houston's daughter's death was caused by drowning as well as drug intoxication. How sad.
The statement reads:
