Nick Gordon has apparently sent an email to Bobby Brown, begging to be allowed to attend Bobbi Kristina Brown's funeral.

The daughter of Bobby and late singer Whitney Houston tragically passed away on Sunday, after spending almost six months in a coma.

A funeral will be held on Saturday, but it's thought her family don't want Bobbi's former boyfriend, who was taken in by Whitney as a child and raised as her brother, to attend. There's speculation he had something to do with her being found face down and unconscious in her bathtub in January after rumours emerged he had been abusive towards her.

A lawsuit has been filed, in which Bobbi’s conservators accuse him of domestic violence and claim he physically attacked her on the night she was found, January 31, the day when Bobbi had apparently arranged to meet a friend to discuss her future with Nick.

But according to TMZ, Nick has now sent an email to Bobbi's father and her aunt Pat Houston, begging for the chance to say farewell.

According to the website, he wrote: "I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye.

"I'm begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance.

Police said the 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown was taken to a hospital Saturday after she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in a suburban Atlanta townhome.

An initial autopsy has been carried out to find out the cause of death, but so far it appears to have been inconclusive. Her body was released for the funeral on Tuesday.

Friends and family will pay their respects at the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, after which she'll be buried in the Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey next to her late mother Whitney.
