Lawyer: Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend prohibited from hospital visits

Bobby Brown's attorney once again denied Nick Gordon's assertion that he was prevented from visiting Bobbi Kristina Brown in the hospital.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is the 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. She has been in a medically-induced coma since being found unresponsive face-down in a tub on Jan. 31. She is being treated at Emory University Hospital.

On Sunday, Gordon's attorney, Randall Kessler, released a statement saying:

Bobby Brown has consistently prohibited Nick, who Bobbi Kristina would want by her side, from being there. Per his own words, Mr. Brown has only "offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina" if Nick were to meet certain conditions, conditions that we, his attorneys, have advised him not to meet, particularly in light of Mr. Brown's inability to guarantee access.

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend was offered hospital visit, attorney says

Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend has declined the chance to visit her in the hospital, Bobby Brown's attorney said.

In a statement released Saturday, Christopher Brown, Bobby's Brown attorney, blasted media reports of Bobbi Kristina Brown, saying, "The numerous fictional reporting involving Bobbi Kristina continues and Bobby Brown's request for privacy clearly has not been heard by all members of the media. Unfortunately, sensationalism remains high as various news affiliates appear determined to undermine the criminal investigation with its erroneous reporting."
