Nick Gordon is making progress in rehab. The 24-year-old, whose girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly remains in a coma in an Atlanta rehabilitation facility, is said to be coping better after seeking professional help a month ago for feeling so overwhelmed by Bobbi Kristina's situation.
A source told People magazine: "Nick is responding well to rehab treatment with no relapses. The quiet time is good for him. He needed it."
Nick is said to be doing well after receiving professional help
Concern for Nick's wellbeing was raised in March when he admitted that he has been contemplating suicide following Bobbi Kristina's hospitalisation.
Troubled Nick made the confession during an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw. When asked if he had thought about taking his own life he replied: "If anything happens to Krissy, I will."
Nick also opened up to the doctor about the "severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks" he has experienced since his friend discovered Bobbi Kristina in a bathtub in late January.
As well as discussing his 22-year-old love, Nick also expressed his pain at having lost his adoptive mum Whitney Houston – who was also his partner Bobbi's mother.
"I lost the most legendary singer ever and I'm scared to lose Krissy," he said. "I want to let all you guys know I did everything possible in the world to protect them. I can't lose Krissy, I can't. I've been praying. I wake up in the middle of the night.
Bobbi Kristina's future remains uncertain
"I miss Krissy and Whitney so much, I want them back," he added.
At the time Nick checked himself into rehab, a source spoke to People about how he was coping.
"He is very distraught over what is going on," they told the US publication. "He really wants to see her [Bobbi Kristina]. He is upset about a lot of things."
