Nick Gordon, the ex-partner of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, has died. He was 30.
The 30-year-old, who was famously in a relationship with Whitney Houston’s late daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown before her untimely death, passed away in Florida “amid New Year’s celebrations,” the Daily Mail reported. The circumstances surrounding his death have not yet been confirmed.
News of Gordon’s death comes several years after he was ordered to pay over $36 million in the wrongful death suit of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found face down in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31, 2015. After spending nearly six months in a coma, she died in hospice care last July 26, 2015 at the age of 22.
Investigators with the medical examiner’s office were not able to determine exactly how Brown died. An autopsy showed that she had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body, but the medical examiner couldn’t determine if she killed herself, if someone else killed her or if her death was accidental.
On Facebook, Walker Jr. mourned the death of his brother, writing: “GOD WHY I DID I HAVE TO LOSE MY BROTHER ON NEW YEAR’S.”
In another post, he wrote: “All I can do I cry.”
Walker Jr. later shared a lengthier message along with several photos of Gordon. “New Year’s 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,” he wrote in part. “You will forever be my best friend, nobody will ever take your place.”
