Bobbi Kristina Brown ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon passed away on Wednesday following a reported drug overdose, this according to his brother, Jack Walker Jr., who spoke to People to announce the news. Nick Gordon was only 30 years old. His death comes just four years after the passing of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown‘s daughter who was found unresponsive in the bathtub of the Georgia townhouse she shared with Gordon. Sources told The Daily Mail he suffered a number of heart attacks on New Year’s Day and was rushed to Altamonte Springs Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit in Florida where he later died.
Nick Gordon’s brother expressed his sorrow over his passing on social media writing, “GOD WHY I DID I HAVE TO LOSE MY BROTHER ON NEW YEARS” and “All I can do is cry.” He continued in a separate post by stating, “I love you so much big brother I hope you heard me talking to you at your bedside you are with me and I can feel it I love you I love you I love you watch over me and your nieces.”
“S— wasn’t suppose to go like this … you were [my] best friend and I never in a million years thought I’d be writing this for my ACE I was there through every step we all love you no matter what and we’ll all stay strong for you, New Years didn’t have to start like this and you just told me you HAD to see me for New Years but I’m blessed I got to talk to you last night you will forever be my best friend nobody will ever take your place,” he later added.
Nick Gordon’s sudden passing comes just three years after he was found liable in Bobbi Kristina Brown’s wrongful death case. As a result, the judge ordered him to pay a whopping $36 million. His relationship and legal woes didn’t stop with Bobbi Kristina either. As The Blast reported, Nick Gordon was arrested in 2018 after his girlfriend, Laura Leal, accused him of a physical altercation. According to the police report, she stated he struck her in the face and pulled her hair while she was driving. However, she later changed her tune and “denied being struck or touched against her will.”
