Nick Gordon reveals 'Bobbi Kristina' tattoo; attorneys counter rumors

Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend, is back on social media for the first time since she was found

Nick Gordon has stepped out of the shadows for the first time on social media since Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub in their Atlanta-area home.

"Thank you for all your prayers," he said Sunday on Twitter. "She is a strong person and will pull through this. Continue to pray for her."

He also updated his Facebook cover photo to reveal a large, new-looking tattoo reading "Bobbi Kristina" in script on his left forearm.

Gordon -- Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, who grew up under the same roof with her after being taken in, not adopted, by the late Whitney Houston -- had spoken out via his lawyers last week after Jerod Brown, a cousin, said in a radio interview that Gordon was going to take legal action to be allowed access to Bobbi Kristina Brown's bedside. Houston's only daughter has been hospitalized in a coma since Jan. 31.

"He would like it to be clear, he is not," Gordon's attorneys Randy Kessler and Joe Habachy told People on Friday.

"Mr. Gordon's only concern is the recovery of Bobbi Kristina. He remains in constant prayer for his companion and he hopes to be reunited with her soon."

Gordon and a friend were both in the house when his girlfriend was found unresponsive in a bathroom. Police are conducting a criminal investigation of the events that day.

The same day Gordon's lawyers spoke out, the attorney for Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina's father, directly dissed Jerod Brown the same day in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

"Jerod Brown aka Jerod Carter aka YF Kennedy, continues to makes statements and appear on television," said attorney Christopher Brown. "However, he has not had any communication with Bobby Brown or the Houston family. He must be disregarded."

The lawyer referred to Jerod Brown as a "sideshow" with no access to information about the situation.

Another report out Monday saying Bobby Brown would be taking his daughter off life support "this week" were also dismissed as false by Christopher Brown, according to Gossip Cop.
