Nick Gordon, the boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, is seeking treatment for his drug use, TMZ reports.

Gordon reportedly checked himself into rehab shortly after an interview with Dr. Phil last week during which he threatened to kill himself if his girlfriend’s condition worsened. The interview, which is being called "an intervention,” is set to air this week.

Brown, the 22 year old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has been in a medically induced coma since she was found unconscious in her bathtub on January 31. Last week, it was reported that she was “under the influence” of drugs prior to the incident, and had been “in and out of rehab” for months.

Her increased substance abuse reportedly coincided with the impending three-year anniversary of her mother’s death. Houston died with cocaine and a low level of Xanax in her system in 2012, following a long struggle with drug addiction.

According to a recent source, Brown’s condition has not improved and she is showing “absolutely no signs of life” in recent days. Since her hospitalization, Gordon has been suffering from “severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks” the source said.

Throughout the ordeal, Gordon has been feuding with Bobby Brown over his right to visit Bobbi Kristina in the hospital. “My heart is full of angry after the Browns have shut me out they don’t even know her. Sabotage,” he tweeted last week. “Whitney told me to protect and I did with no help.” 

Police are also investigating the possibility of a physical altercation between Gordon and Bobbi Kristina the night she was found unconscious, TMZ reports. According to multiple sources, the couple had a “history of violence.”
