Gordon entered a facility last month (Mar15) at the urging of his mother, after discussing suicide during a TV taping with U.S. self-help guru Dr. Phil MCgraw, but he has since checked out, according to People.com.

Gordon has been feuding with his girlfriend's father Bobby Brown and members of her family, who have refused to let him visit her since her hospitalisation in January (15), after she was found face down in a bathtub at the Georgia home she shared with Gordon.

He has also been struggling with the loss of Whitney Houston, who informally adopted Gordon when he was younger.

Houston drowned in a Beverly Hills hotel suite bathroom on 11 February, 2012. Her death was drug-related.
