Bobbi Kristina

Nick Gordon Says Drugs Did Her In

... Not Him

7/5/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-bobbi-kristina-nick-gordan-tmz-getty-01Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon has not said a word about the bathtub incident that apparently will prove fatal, but TMZ now knows Nick's story ... that he did nothing to harm Bobbi Kristina and drugs did her in.

A member of Bobby Brown's family recorded Nick on February 21, 3 weeks after Bobbi Kristina was rushed to the hospital. Even though Nick didn't know he was being taped, the call was legally recorded because Georgia is a 1-party state.

Nick says, "I'll tell you the honest truth, Krissy, she was under a lot of stress and we were all doing drugs and you know, all, all drinking, bro."

And then he said this: "She just did too much man. She, listen, listen bro. I will officially stay from bath tubs forever, I'll tell you that."

He then rails on those who think Bobbi Kristina's injuries prove he tried to kill her, saying, "When Krissy wakes up she'll tell the truth to everybody. Everybody will feel stupid as f***... You know Krissy got in an accident 2 days before this happened and the man is in critical condition right now." 

He then warns the family, saying, "If they take her off that life support, the police are going to have to take me down bro."

Gordon is considered a person of interest in the case, and if Bobbi Kristina dies it will become a murder investigation.

Kourtney Kardashian had her game face on Saturday, but it's all for show because she's livid at Scott.

Kourtney posed with daughter Penelope in Malibu, as baby daddy Scott Disick partied thousands of mile away in Monte Carlo with celeb stylist Chloe Bartoli.  As we reported, Kourtney is boiling over with anger because she's convinced Scott and Chloe are hooking up.

The Kardashian blames it partly on Chloe, partly on what she believes is Scott's losing battle with substance abuse, and partly just plain on Scott.

Brandi To Joanna

I May Be a Real Bitch

But So are You

Brandi Glanville has unveiled her defense in the defamation case Joanna Krupa filed against her ... Joanna's at least as much of a bitch as her, so she should shut up.

As we reported, Joanna's suing Brandi, claiming she was defamed when Brandi told Andy Cohen her vagina smelled like fish.

Brandi says in new legal docs what she's doing is nothing compared to Joanna's campaign of bitchiness, saying Joanna taunted her on Twitter by giving her the finger after the Hard Rock in Tampa cancelled Brandi's personal appearance.

And Brandi says Joanna has publicly ridiculed her, claiming she was a drunk and a racist with a "little brain" ... and she's trailer trash.

It gets worse. Brandi notes Joanna had the audacity to wear a "TEAM RIMES" tank top in public. 

Anyone heard the expression, "A pox on both of your houses?"

0619-abby-ryder-fortson-getty-01Pint-sized Abby Ryder Fortson is making tons of dough while tearing up Hollywood … starring in 3 TV shows and making a superhero leap to the big screen.

Abby's crushing the casting process ... also booking gigs on ABC’s “The Whispers,” Amazon’s “Transparent,” and the Marvel movie “Ant-Man.” We mentioned she's 7, right?

Mom and Dad are working actors too, but at this pace ... Abby will be handing them allowance soon.

‘Americans’ Actor

Matthew Rhys Selling L.A. Bachelor Pad

7/5/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701_miracle_mile_mathew_rhys_primary"The Americans" star Matthew Rhys is ditching his LA bachelor pad for the Atlantic, TMZ has learned.

The 3-bedroom, 2-bath Mediterranean home hit the market for $1.3 million … not much more than the $1.26 mill Rhys dropped on it in 2008 with his “Brothers & Sisters” dough.

There’s a guesthouse and nice yard for entertaining, but the pad’s real draw is its walk score … blocks away from great restaurants, an organic supermarket and celeb fave The Grove.

As for why he's dumping the place ...  we’re told he’s never around. Rhys films the hit FX series between D.C. and NYC, plus his girlfriend/'Americans' co-star, Keri Russell, is also out there and long distance relationships ... never fun.
