Nick Gordon ordered to pay Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family 36 million dollars
Nick Gordon has being ordered to pay more than $36 million to the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown, two months after he was found legally responsible for her death.
The daughter of Bobbi Brown and the late Whitney Houston died in July 2015 at age 22 after being in a coma for months. She was found face down and unconscious in a bathtub in a Georgia home she shared with Gordon, who she often called her “husband” and who her mother had helped raise.
Nick denied any wrongdoing and was never charged with a crime. Bobbi’s estate filed a $50 million wrongful death civil lawsuit against him.
Bobby said in a statement: “I am pleased with the outcome of today’s court proceedings,”
I do know that Mr. Gordon will be unable to slander my daughter’s name in the future or obtain any benefits from the use of Krissy’s name,”
Finally, I do need for the District Attorney’s Office to step up and begin the criminal prosecution of Mr. Gordon.
The delay in that matter is of great concern to me and my family. We need for District Attorney Howard to act now.”
The $36 million includes $15 million for present value of life, $13.8 million for pain and suffering and $1.37 million for assault and battery. The lawsuit had alleged Bobbi Kristina “died due to a violent altercation” with Gordon, “after which he placed her in a bathtub, unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture.
We intend to pursue, with all vigor, the full collection of the judgment,” Bobbi Kristina’s estate’s attorney, R. David Ware, said in a statement to E! News. The defendant will not escape justice nor ever profit from his misdeeds. We hope that in some small way this will allow Krissy’s family to continue their quest for peace.”
Bobbi Kristina was Houston’s only child.
