It is so tragic when someone loses their life at a young age. The former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, Nick Gordon, has died at the tender age of 30.
Gordon’s attorney has confirmed the tragic news to The Associated Press and TIME reports. Joe S Habachy said in his statement that he was there with a heavy heart, learning that his client of many years, Nicholas Chad Gordon, had passed away.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the exact cause of Gordon’s death was not confirmed by Habachy. When speaking to E!News, Habachy stated that he could not give specifics surrounding Gordon’s death, but he went on to say that it broke his heart to witness first-hand the total devastation drug addiction has caused so many young people that were loved and had so much going for them.
Habachy went on to say that even though Nick had faced challenges over the years, he put so much work into staying sober, holding his head up high and honestly more than anything else, wanted to enjoy a happy and healthy life with his family. Habachy expressed his sorrow to Gordon’s family and friends and also to those families that have had to endure the loss of a loved one resulting from drugs.
The relationship between Nick and Bobbi Kristina Brown first became public knowledge in 2012. It was the same year that Bobbi’s mom, Whitney Houston, passed away. Whitney was only 48-years-old when she was found dead in a bathtub from an accidental drowning. Reports according to Sky News stated that authorities commented that due to years of drug abuse combined with heart disease played a critical role in her death.
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown took Nick under their wing. There was a time when Nick actually lived with the famous family but was never formally adopted by the pop singer.
Sadly, at the age of 22, Bobbi Kristina Brown was discovered face-down in a bathtub. It was only three years after her mom’s death when Bobbi was found with several drugs in her system. Bobbi died six months later.
Nick was found liable for Bobbi’s death. Even though he was not charged, he was ordered to pay $36 million (R507m) to Brown’s Estate. Nick’s lawyers strongly denied the allegations.
