The death of Bobbi Kristina Brown shook the celebrity world. In a recent development, a judge has ruled Nick Gordon, Bobbi’s boyfriend at the time, responsible for her death. Her family had filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Gordon in 2015 after alleging that he provided Bobbi with a lethal mixture of drugs. Gordon repeatedly failed to show up for his court hearings and, after his no-show-appearance on Friday, the judge finally had enough.
The judge ruled in favor of Bobbi’s family. Any potential damages he’ll be ordered to pay will be determined at a later hearing. But, if Nick’s current behavior is anything to go off of, there’s a good chance he’ll ditch those meetings, too. Honestly, it’s truly a mystery as to what goes through some people’s heads. It’s never a good idea to skip out on court appearances, especially when so much hangs in the balance.
Do you think that Nick Gordon’s frequent court absences speak volumes? Does the fact that he did not show up to court, in some way, convey his guilt in the events leading up to Bobbi Kristina’s demise? Gordon was not criminally charged with her death; however, the family’s original lawsuit, according to NBC News, recalls that several allegations were made, “including that Gordon abused Brown, wanted to steal her inheritance, drugged her with a ‘toxic cocktail’ and then drowned her in a tub of cold water.”
In response to the judgment, Bobby Brown said, “Today’s judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon. Now I need to process all the emotions I have and lean on God to get me and my family through this.”
The lawyer for the Brown estate said, “[…] he’s legally responsible for her death and the only thing left for us now to prove is the value of her life. And we intend to do that.”
