While Bobbi Kristina Brown remains at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital with her condition unclear, it seems turmoil is surrounding her hopeful recovery. 

While it came out Tuesday Brown was never actually married to the man she called her husband, Nick Gordon, now People is reporting that tension between Brown and the family of the late Whitney Houston has been building for years and finally resulted in a restraining order last year. 

Bobbi Kristina Brown's Hospitalization: New Details

According to court documents filed in Fulton County, Ga., People reports that Whitney Houston's sister-in-law Marion "Pat" Houston petitioned for a temporary protective order against Gordon in March, 2014. Marion Houston serves as the executor Whitney Houston's trust fund for Bobbi Kristina Brown and claimed Gordon had "made threatening comments and posted photos of guns with the intention of making petitioner fearful for her personal safety. Respondent then posted more photos of guns later and has sent harassing texts." 

The publication also cites a police report from that time, stating that Gordon and Brown "are not pleased with Marion controlling Whitney Houston's estate" and wanted Brown's monthly allowance increased.

It also alleges that Gordon had turned Brown against the family and has made threatening statements to Marion Houston and other family members. The police declined to investigate further, upon review, the site says, but a Georgia court did grant Houston's request last April for a one-year protective order forbidding Gordon to contact Marion Houston or her immediate family. 

Whitney Houston brought Gordon into her home when he was 12 but never officially adopted him. He and Bobbi Kristina Brown made their romance known publicly following the iconic singer's death in February 2012. 

It was Gordon and a friend who found Brown face down in the bathtub at their home over the weekend.
