ET's Kevin Frazier sat down with Dr. Phil to discuss his interview with Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon that turned into an "emotionally-charged intervention."

"I went to Atlanta to interview Nick," Dr. Phil told Kevin. "When I got there the interview became an intervention."

According to Dr. Phil, warning signs began before the cameras started rolling.

"It comes time to do the interview. He's not there," Dr. Phil recalled. "I go knock on his door, and he opens the door and freaks. He starts yelling, screaming."

Dr. Phil does not believe that Nick was sober for the interview, where Nick's mother Michelle was also present, and he described Nick's erratic behavior.

"He would go from being able to talk like we're talking right now to just all of a sudden collapsing and just wailing, and then he would pull out his phone and turn on a Whitney [Houston] song and just start crying," Dr. Phil said. "What he's saying is, 'Look, I feel a huge amount of guilt here.'"

"My pain is horrible," Gordon told Dr. Phil in their interview. "My heart hurts. I have panic attacks."

Nick also addressed suicide threats that he reportedly made, telling Dr. Phil, "If anything happens to Krissy, I will."

In the interview airing Wednesday, Dr. Phil offers Nick guidance as, according to the show's press release, he "battles drug and alcohol addiction." Nick stormed out of the sit-down and subsequently checked into rehab.

"My first consideration is I don't want him dead. I don't want him overdosed," Dr. Phil said. "I want to save this kid's life ... At this point we do have him in rehab. How long he stays? We'll see."
