Bobbi Kristina Brown’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, passed away at the age of 30 after he was rushed to the hospital on January 1 due to a series of heart attacks.
According to his lawyer, Joe Habachy, he was saddened by the loss of his long-time client who died at a young age of 30. He said he couldn’t speak about the actual cause of his death, he witnessed the devastation that drug addiction can cause among his young friends who were loved and had great potential.
He added that despite the challenges that his client faced over the years, he could attest how Nick worked hard to stay sober and how much he wanted to make his family happy and t have a healthy life. He concluded by saying that his heart goes out to his family and friends whom he had left behind as well as to those families who are also dealing with the losses and heartaches brought about by drug addiction.
Meanwhile, Gordon’s brother Junior Walker wrote on his Facebook asking God why he had to lose his brother on New Year’s Day. He also shared a photo of the two of them when they were still little with a caption saying that all he could do is cry.
Gordon became famous after dating Bobbi Kristina Brown, Witney Houston’s only daughter whom she shared with Bobby Brown. She was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in Atlanta in January 2015. She died six months after she was put on a medically induced coma.
A judge found Gordon legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s death though he was never criminally charged. Her conservator filed an alleged $50 million lawsuit claiming that she died because of violent altercation with Gordon after he put her in the tub while she was unconscious after injecting her with a toxic mixture.
Gordon was ordered to pay $36 million in damages but he denied those allegations against him and insisted that he wasn’t involved in her death, claiming he was 100% innocent.- Advertisement -
In March 2018, Gordon made headlines once again after he was arrested for violating a no-contact order which was placed following an incident of domestic violence with Laura Leal, his girlfriend. However, he wasn’t charged after Leal recanted her statement.
Nick Gordon sought treatment in rehab and even worked as a landscaper in Orlando, Florida.
