They raised him like he was her own child and if you've been paying attention, Whit spoke of him rather often.
During one of Whitney's last interviews she told GlobalGrind: "I also have my godson; he is going to be 22, a well-balanced young man, that I took care of," she candidly told us.
Nicholas also had his own share of trouble when he pulled out a gun in order to get Bobbi Kristina away from an ex-boyfriend who sold pictures of her to the National Enquirer.
According to reports:
Lomas (Bobbi Kristina's ex) and Gordon – who told police he was Krissi’s brother – were angered after seeing Krissi driving with three male friends and followed them in Gordon’s car to a Chevron gas station.
At the gas station, Lomas allegedly beat up one of Krissi’s friends. Gordon admitted to police he waved a gun in the air during the fight.
Police later found a Glock 19 handgun in his glove compartment.
Krissi was handcuffed and cited as a minor in possession of alcohol, Nick Gordon was charged with pointing a pistol at a person and Lomas was charged with battery.
On a lighter note, Nicholas appears to be a regular 22-year-old, who tweets quite a bit. His Twitter page reads as a young man having fun and enjoying life. Tweets like, "Some ppl are just more comfortable on the sideline," explain why we don't see him as much as we see Bobbi Kristina.
Others tell us he likes to party, chill with his homies, likes women with pretty feet, and drinking out of red solo cups!
We wish him all the best as he grieves over the death of his adoptive mother.
