Nick Gordon did not attend Bobbi Kristina Brown's funeral over the weekend, but a source confirms to E! News he and his mother honored her memory at the beach on the day she was laid to rest.
Michele Gordon confirmed this, telling People, "Nick went to the beach with me on Friday during the services. He said the beach was always their favorite place to go, so he decided that he would honor her at a place that they both loved."
Nick reportedly asked Bobby Brown and Pat Houston for permission to attend the funeral. Per People, he sent an email to both on Thursday asking if they could "please put your differences aside" and grant him their blessing to attend the service.
People reports that as of Friday, Nick had yet to receive a response.
It's no secret, though, that Nick has had contentious relationship with members of Bobbi Kristina's family. He's currently facing a $10 million lawsuit filed by her conservators, in which they accuse him of domestic abuse and stealing money. In response, Nick assembled a legal team to investigate what happened the day Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub.
An initial autopsy completed did not show an obvious cause of death for Bobbi Kristina. On July 27, The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office said in a statement: "Additional laboratory testing will be performed. Subpoenas have been issued to obtain needed documentary information. We do not plan to complete the death certificate or determine a cause and manner of death until all test results are completed and all investigative, medical, and other documentary records are received and thoroughly reviewed. We anticipate that these processes will take several weeks."
