Nick Gordon says he desperately wants to attend Bobbi Kristina's funeral Saturday, and is openly begging Bobby Brown to let him do so via email.
According to the email, Nick Gordon pleads, "I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye."
Nick is on the outs with Brown's family, as he has been ever since she was found face down in the bathtub in her Georgia home January 31.
With police continuing their sweeping investigation into the death of Bobbi Kristina, he is even more persona non grata ... if that's possible.
Nick, who included Bobby Brown and Pat Houston in his email because she's the one arranging the funeral, goes on, "I'm begging you both."
"Please put your differences aside and allow me this chance."
"Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."
Not so sure about that last guilt-laden plea there, Nick.
Insiders say murder is unlikely, given the lack of evidence or clear motive, but we well could see Nick Gordon charged with manslaughter.
Most members of both families blame Gordon for her death, given their lifestyle and his treatment of her, however she ended up in the tub.
Bobby Brown, ironically, was shunned and blamed by Whitney Houston's family for her 2012 death, which took place in eerily similar fashion.
