ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon is hopeful that he'll be able to visit her in the hospital soon.
In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, Gordon's attorney, Randall M. Kessler, said he isn't visiting her in the hospital to avoid confrontation with her family.
The statement said:
"Nick has been trying, privately, to do everything he can to see Bobbi Kristina cooperatively. 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."
