"I'm asking you both for your blessing in regards to me attending Krissi's funeral," he wrote. "I do not want to cause any trouble or commotion so I'm emailing you privately in advance."

"I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye," continued Gordon, imploring the family to "allow me this chance."

Before she died, Nick Gordon was Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend. Although the two were not legally married, ET obtained footage showing Gordon still wearing his wedding band on his finger, along with Bobbi Kristina's ring around his neck.

While facing a civil lawsuit from Bobbi Kristina's conservator, Gordon has hired a high-powered legal team, including Jose Baez -- lead defense attorney for Casey Anthony, who was found not guilty of first degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, in 2011.
