Nick Gordon: Bobbi Kristina Brown's Husband to Blame For Troubled Star's Woes?

After the late Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in the tub and hospitalized Saturday, many questions have arisen.

Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon

Like her mother before her, Bobbi Kristina Brown has battled substance abuse in the past, but it's unclear exactly what landed her in the hospital.

She is currently under a medically-induced coma, but breathing. Beyond that, her condition and what factors led to it remain unclear at this time.

A drug-related search came up empty in her home, reports say, but a family source knows outsiders will point the finger at her husband, Nick Gordon.

"He'll be the bad guy again," the source said, adding that from the start of their romance, "Nick knew that a lot of the family weren't fans of his."

"He sort of kept her away from some of her family because he didn't want them to say bad things about him to [Bobbi]. It's not exactly his fault."

Nick, who's often referred to as Bobbi Kristina's stepbrother, was raised as part of Whitney Houston's family but never formally adopted by her.

He was infamous for not getting along with members of Houston's family, particularly the late singer's mother, Cissy Houston. The source continued:

"Everyone had a preconceived notion about him, and it wasn't always fair. But he didn't do himself any favors. He was disrespectful a lot of the time."

"Always 'f' this, 'f' that, using language Cissy didn't approve of. To her face. If there's one thing Cissy doesn't stand for, it's people who swear in front of her."

Bobbi Kristina, 21, and Nick's unconventional romance has raised eyebrows over the years. They went public after Houston's death in 2012.

She married Nick Gordon last January, but that didn't entirely thaw the notoriously icy relations between Nick and Bobbi Kristina's relatives.

Still, the family insider cautions pointing any fingers at Nick, especially given the lack of conclusive evidence regarding what happened this week.

"I don't want to blame Nick for any drug use, because that's not fair," they said. "Nick may not be the best influence, but she makes her own choices."

Her father, Bobby Brown, "was blamed for Whitney's drug use, and that always bothered him. She was a grown woman who made her own choices."

"Krissy makes her own choices, too. No one influences her to do anything she doesn't want to do; she's stubborn just like both of her parents."

Not only that, "She said, 'I know how my mother died, and I've learned from her mistakes,'" the source recalls. "She seemed very adamant."

Here's hoping for her full, and fast, recovery.
