RadarOnline.com has obtained shocking text messages that show Bobbi Kristina Brown was desperately reaching out for help in the days before she was found facedown in a bathtub last January.
One disturbing exchange with a trusted friend shows the 22-year-old aspiring singer was living in fear of her violent boyfriend Nick Gordon, 25.
“Hey baby I miss you so much. Sorry I’ve been working so much lately. I saw you called me last night,” Brown’s pal texted.
“Hey babe boo boo. Yeah I’m sad …It’s about Nick … ” replied Brown, who used the nickname Krissi Lovebug.
The friend responded: “God … What’s wrong now baby? He doesn’t deserve you boo.”
Brown replied: “Yeah I just seriously don’t know what to do about him. You know how he is. I care about him but I’m so sick of the fighting and him telling me what I can and can’t do. Plus what I found out … I’m devastated … I need my BFF baby love.”
Brown’s loved ones claim to Radar that Gordon was a jealous lover who often beat her senseless.
“Krissi was referring to Nick’s violent outbursts that turned physical and abusive, all of which were aimed at her,” a source tells Radar. “She was also upset that he’d text and flirt with other women, and she suspected that Nick was cheating on her.”
Brown had planned to seek “safe haven” at a friend’s home, continued the source.

“She was very depressed and taking a lot of Xanax [a prescription mood elevator and relaxant] and wanted desperately to get away from him because she believed he had snapped.”
As Radar reported, Gordon has been slammed with a mega-million dollar wrongful death lawsuit. He could also face possible murder charges when Brown dies.
