Four years after the death of his ex-girlfriend, Bobbi Kristina, Nick Gordon Joins her in the land of the Dead. Drug Abuse seems to plague the Houston family.
Nick Gordon Died on New year’s day. Three years after he was found liable for her Whitney Houston’s Daughter’s death.
In his case also, the 30-year-old reportedly died of an apparent drug overdose. Sources told The Daily Mail he suffered several heart attacks before being rushed to Altamonte Springs Hospital where he was treated in the ICU before he died.
Whitney Houston raised Nick Gordon as an orphan at the age of 12. She raised him and her daughter. However, Whitney never fully adopted him or included him in her will.
And upon Whitney’s death in 2012, Gordon and Brown made public their love affair. The relationship brewed tensions between the Gordon and Houston families about the appropriateness of the union. However, Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon, were both engaged at the time of her death in 2015.
Gordon was blamed by the Houston family for her death. Accusing him of giving her a “toxic cocktail” before putting her face-down in the water.
Although Gordon was never charged in the case, he was found responsible in a wrongful death lawsuit with an Atlanta judge ordering him to pay $36 million to Brown’s estate.
Grieving On His Death
Speaking Gordon’s death, his attorney, Joe Habachy in a statement on Wednesday noted: “My heart is heavy today after learning that my longtime client Nick Gordon died ... while I cannot speak to the specific circumstances of his death, I can say that it’s been truly heartbreaking to have witnessed first hand the total devastation that drug addiction has wreaked upon a group of young friends, all of whom were loved and had immense potential.”
Also, Nick Gordon’s brother, Jack Walker, Jr. also submitted to People: “We are devastated by the loss of my beautiful brother. He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends. Nick’s battle in life was not an easy one. I will be forever grateful that my God afforded a small moment at the very end of Nick’s life, and I was able to hold his hand as he journeyed on.”
Rest In Peace Nick Gordon.
