Nick Gordon was allegedly one of the people who discovered Brown face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub early this year. She slipped into a coma and passed away on July 26.
"I'm asking you both for your blessing in regards to me attending Krissi's funeral," he wrote in the e-mail, which People was able to obtain. "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. I'm begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance. Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there. Please consider this?
"You are both in my daily prayers. I know you are suffering. May God bless you both and heal your hearts. God bless, Nick Gordon."
Things have been contentious between Gordon and Bobbi Kristina's family since she went into a coma. At one point, Gordon blasted Bobby on Twitter after Bobby reportedly barred him from visiting Bobbi Kristina in the hospital.
