An attorney representing Bobby Brown says the entertainer's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, isn't and never has been married.

Brown's attorney Christopher Brown released a statement Tuesday disputing reports that Bobbi Kristina Brown is married to Nick Gordon. Bobbi Kristina Brown has been hospitalized since Saturday after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at a suburban Atlanta townhome. Gordon and a friend called police.

In 2012 -- following Houston's death -- Brown announced that she was engaged to Gordon. The news was revealed in previews for the Houston family's Lifetime reality series "The Houstons: On Our Own."

In January 2014, Brown tweeted that she and Gordon had exchanged vows: "@nickgordon! #HappilyMarried. SO #Inlove. If you didn't get it the first time that is."

That same month, a representative for the family confirmed to The Associated Press that Brown and Gordon had gotten married, but did not release additional details.

Bobbi Kristina is the only child of Bobby Brown and the late singer Whitney Houston, who was found unresponsive in a hotel bathtub in 2012. Whitney Houston left her entire estate to her daughter.

Brown's family has said she's in a hospital "fighting for her life."
