Nick Gordon’s cause of death has been revealed. According to an autopsy report, Nick Gordon’s cause of death was heroin toxicity. The manner of his death was listed as accidental. At the age of 30, Nick passed away on New Year’s Day, three years after he was found responsible for the death of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston’s only child.


The report documents declared that Gordon was found unresponsive and in cardiac arrest. He was administered Narcan and was hospitalized for seven hours and was declared dead.

In an interview during his death, Gordon’s attorney shared that his heart felt heavy after learning that his long-term client passed away at the age of thirty. His attorney hasn’t spoken specific details during that time but said that it’s been truly heartbreaking to witness the total devastation of drug addiction among a group of young friends who have immense potential.

The pop icon, Whitney Houston helped raised Nick Gordon, who Bobbi Kristina often referred to as her husband. In 2016, Gordon was found responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s death and was charged more than $36 million subsequent to a civil wrongful death filed by her family against him.

In 2015, the 22-year-old  Bobbi Kristina died after being in a coma for six months since she was found unconscious in a bathtub in a home she shared with Nick in Georgia. Her cause of death was listed as Lobar pneumonia caused by Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and water immersion combined with mixed drug intoxication.

Nick denied the accusations against him and was not charged with the crime relating to Bobbi Kristina’s death. On the other hand, Bobbi Kristina’s family prevailed in their civil case by default against Nick as he failed to appear for two hearings.

While Bobbi Kristina was in the hospital, Nick appeared on Dr. Phil and shared about suffering from drug and alcohol addiction and opened up on his mental health. Nick them underwent rehab. After Bobbi Kristina’s death, he appeared again on the show and opened up that they were using drugs regularly and was an unfortunate thing that it was the only way they knew to deal with what happened.


Nick Gordon also opened up regarding his rehab and said that it was something he needed and was thankful he was given the opportunity.
