Nine months after Bobbi Kristina Brown's tragic death, her controversial boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is finally telling all in an interview with Dr. Phil on Thursday and Friday.

In a new preview clip, he admits that the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown turned to hard drugs following her mother's tragic drowning and overdose death in 2012.

"It got really bad after Nippy passed away," he confesses to the TV doctor, using his adoptive mother's nickname. "It's unfortunate, but at the time that's the only way we knew how to deal with what had happened."

Less than three years later, Brown was discovered unresponsive in her bathtub following a drug bender. After remaining in a coma for more than six months, she finally passed away on July 26. 2015 at just 22.

Gordon, 25, says he drowned his sorrows in alcohol and the prescription pill Xanax during the painful ordeal, which led to a filed intervention with Dr. Phil and a trip to treatment.

"I could not deal with what was happening to Krissi. It mentally broke me. That's the lowest point of my life right there," a clear-eyed Gordon reveals in the video. "Rehab was something I needed. I'm thankful that I got that opportunity."

Of course, Gordon still has plenty of tough times ahead. Brown's conservator slammed him with a lawsuit last October, accusing him of injecting her with drugs and beating her before the tragedy.

He has sworn he had nothing to do with her death.

"The truth is that Nick tried to save Bobbi Kristina's life," his lawyers revealed in a statement earlier this year.
