Bobbi Kristina Brown’s best friend Alex Reid hopes she can help out the investigation surrounding Nick Gordon’s alleged abuse.

In January Bobbi, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, was found face down in her bath tub at home in Georgia.

Since then the 22-year-old has been unresponsive, first receiving care in hospital before recently being moved to a hospice.

Last week it was reported that Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick, who was brought up as her brother after he was taken in by Whitney, was accused of beating her. Now Bobbi’s best friend Alex Reid has added to the claims, but admits she never saw any abuse.

"Krissi was physically abused by Nick on a number of occasions and she told me about some of them," Alex told E! News. "I never witnessed anything... she would FaceTime me every time she was distraught, when something has just happened or show me a bruise."

Alex says it was heartbreaking to witness her friend so scared, and she would often be there to support her.

Prior to her hospitalisation it was thought Bobbi and Nick had married, but it has since come out that that is not the case.

Bobbi’s family have spoken about how they are determined to see justice served, and Alex is hopeful her comments may help.

"I love her. I would never have betrayed her and spoken out before now. But as she lies there, I feel there is no one else to speak on her behalf. I feel like I have to be a voice for her now.

"There are things that I know that no one else does. And I hope that by speaking out I can help the investigation in some way,” she added.
