The man Whitney Houston's daughter calls her husband has said he is seeking permission from Bobbi Kristina Brown's family to visit her in hospital.
Nick Gordon said in a statement through his lawyers, Randy Kessler and Joe Habacy, that he hopes his request will be granted.
Bobbi Kristina was found face-down and unresponsive in her bathtub in Alpharetta, Georgia, on January 31. The 21-year-old's family said she has been "fighting for her life" at Emory University Hospital.
Gordon's lawyers said their client "desperately" wants to see Bobbi Kristina. The statement said he has not tried to return to the hospital and risk a public confrontation.
Bobbi Kristina is the only daughter of singers Bobby Brown and Houston.
Brown's lawyer has not responded to numerous requests seeking comment.
