ABC News obtained a statement from Nick Gordon’s brother, “We are devasted 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 forever be 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”.
According to Hot 97.1, he died in New Year’s Day because of a drug overdose.
Gordon has always been a controversial figure in the life of the Brown- Houston’s. Back in 2015, Gordon and a friend told the police they found his alleged fiance, Bobbi Kristina in the bathtub of her Sandy Springs home and immediately used CPR on her.
A lawsuit claims Gordon placed her there. Bobbi Kristina passed away nearly six months later. Another lawsuit filed against Gordon in Fulton County court accused him giving Brown a “toxic cocktail” and then placing her face down in a bathtub the day of Brown’s death. Her manner of death remains a mystery still to this day. Claimed as “undetermined”, because investigators can’t conclusively say whether her death was accidental or intentional.
Nick Gordon has been residjng in Florida since Brown’s death. He passed away at 30 years old.
