As if Bobbi Kristina Brown's story wasn't devastating enough ...
In an interview with Giuliana Rancic, a friend of the 22-year-old, Alex Reid, opened up about the toxic relationship between BK and boyfriend, Nick Gordon, 25.
"Pretty soon after we met she started telling me about the times [Nick Gordon] had been physically abusive and it just kept escalating. It just kept getting worse and worse," she tells E! News co-host Giuliana. "He was known to choke her. Throw her on the walls, punch her in the jaw. Just unbelievable stuff. It was really this off the handle temper."

Just weeks before Whitney Houston's daughter was found unconscious in a bathtub on Jan. 31, Alex claims Bobbi was forced to hide from her live-in boyfriend who had allegedly hit her and left her in tears.
"She would FaceTime me every time she was distraught, when something has just happened or show me a bruise," she added. “One time I remember she called me for three hours. She was hyperventilating. I could barely understand what she was saying because she was so distraught."
This interview comes right on the heels of the release of unsettling text messages that were allegedly sent from Bobbi Kristina to a friend before the incident in January. In the messages, she admits she's "so sick of the fighting" and hostile relationship she shared with Gordon.
