Nick Gordon, his mother Michelle and Dr. Phil
The Beverly Hills coroner who received the body of the late legendary singer, Whitney Houston, after she drowned from a drug overdose in a hotel bathtub, is disputing claims her unofficially adopted son, Nick Gordon, gave her CPR in an effort to save her life.
Gordon's mother made the claim on the "Dr. Phil Show" stating, "When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, 'Mom, why couldn't I do it? I couldn't get air into her lungs.'"

However, the Beverly Hills coroner stated, "As far as I know, the bodyguard and the personal assistant pulled Whitney out of the bathtub, but they did not perform CPR. They called downstairs telling them to call 911 and Beverly Hills Police Department was on-scene in less than five minutes."

Gordon is also claiming he gave CPR to Houston's daughter, his girlfriend, Bobbi Kristina Brown, after finding her face down and unresponsive in her bathtub, after a drug overdose. The two had been fighting that morning and Gordon cleaned up blood before the police and paramedics arrived. The couple's drug dealer, Max Lomas, disputes Gordon's claim, stating he was the one who called 911 and gave Bobbi Kristina CPR.

Coroner Disputes Claims That Nick Gordon Performed CPR on Whitney Houston
10:30 AM PDT, March 09, 2015 - ET now has some background information on the recent bombshell claim that Nick Gordon administered CPR to the late Whitney Houston when she was found unconscious at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A. on Feb. 11, 2012.
Gordon's mother Michelle made the claim during Dr. Phil's intense sit-down with the 25-year-old Gordon, which airs Wednesday, March 11.
"When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, 'Mom, why couldn't I do it? I couldn't get air into her lungs,'" she said about her son's traumatic experience.
However, according to the Coroner Investigator that handled Whitney's case, no such information was relayed to her. Typically the investigating personnel asks questions to find out of how long the person was down and what life saving efforts were attempted.
"As far as I know, the bodyguard and the personal assistant pulled Whitney out of the bathtub, but they did not perform CPR," the Coroner Investigator told ET in a statement when asked if she was aware of any CPR attempt by any person present in the hotel room at the time. "They called downstairs telling them to call 911 and Beverly Hills Police Department was on-scene in less than five minutes."
A source close to Bobby Brown also tells ET that they'd never heard of Gordon performing CPR on Houston, and "do not believe this story at all."
In a new preview of Dr. Phil's sit-down with Gordon, the troubled partner of Bobbi Kristina is clearly distraught as Dr. Phil and his mother stage an intervention. According to the show's press release, he "battles drug and alcohol addiction."
