There have been new statements released in recent celebrity news, surrounding the late Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. She is currently in critical condition at a hospital in a medically induced coma. Bobbi Kristina’s family say that, despite his recent remarks on social media, Nick Gordon was actually offered the opportunity to visit his celebrity love in the hospital. According to UsMagazine.com, Gordon’s lawyer said, “He has respected the family’s wishes and for that reason alone has not returned to the hospital and risked a public confrontation. But he desperately wants to be with the one he loves and continues to hope that his request will be granted.” Bobby Brown, R&B singer and father of Bobbi Kristina, wants nothing, but for his daughter to get well. “We continue to request privacy in this matter. We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers,” he said.

Tragedy isn’t isolated to celebrity love birds Bobbi Kristin and Nick Gordon. What are some ways to cope when your partner is ill or injured?

3. Remember talking helps: No matter what the situation is, remember that talking helps. Whether you need to vent to your friends and family or seek out advice – do it!

There is always someone out there who will listen, and you need to use your voice and let everything out. You will feel much better after!
