Nick Gordon is publicly asking the family of music scion Bobbi Kristina Brown for permission to visit his girlfriend at an Atlanta medical facility.

"Despite his strong desire to see Bobbi Kristina," Gordon's attorneys, Randall M. Kessler and Joe S. Habachy, said in a statement on Monday, "Nick has respected the families' wishes for over three months and has refrained from visiting or from pursuing access to her through the courts. He has asked through counsel many times privately and now asks both the Browns and the Houstons, please let him see her."

Brown, 22, the daughter of singer Bobby Brown and the late pop star Whitney Houston, has been unresponsive since Gordon and a friend found her on Jan. 31 in a bathtub in the suburban-Atlanta town house she and Gordon shared.

Bobby Brown's attorney, Christopher Brown, said on Feb. 21, "Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit." Gordon's attorneys responded that they had "advised him not to meet" the family's conditions.

Kessler added at the time that Gordon had offered several times to meet privately with Bobby Brown to discuss the issue. "Those offers have also been rejected," he said.
