Nick Gordon's memorial for Bobbi Kristina Brown

05 August 2015, 10:03

Los Angeles - Nick Gordon visited a beach to pay his respects to Bobbi Kristina Brown.

The boyfriend of the 22-year-old aspiring actress - who tragically passed away after six months in a coma - spent the Friday of her funeral at the couple's ''favourite place'', after he was allegedly banned from attending the service.

His mother Michelle Gordon told PEOPLE magazine: ''Nick went to the beach with me on Friday during the services.

"He said the beach was always their favourite place to go, so he decided that he would honour her at a place that they both loved."

Meanwhile, Nick allegedly begged Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown and aunt Pat Houston to let him attend the funeral.

An email to the pair reportedly read: "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. Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."

When Bobbi Kristina passed away, Michelle released a statement on behalf of her son, insisting he "loved and cared for her deeply".

It read: "The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family. Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they've been apart.

"Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time."
