It’s been a year since the untimely death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, and now her family is finally getting the closure they’ve been looking for.
On Friday, Nick Gordon was found “legally responsible” in the late Bobbi Kristina’s wrongful death suit after he failed to appear in court. News One reports:
“The conservator of Brown’s estate filed a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Gordon in August 2015. The suit accused Gordon of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and transferring money from Brown’s account into his own without authorization. Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, died in August 2015 – several months after being found unresponsive in a tub at her Roswell townhome. Gordon was her longtime partner. Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford said because Gordon has failed to appear twice, anything alleged by the plaintiff is admitted through omission.”
Just a few hours after the hearing, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah Brown told 11Alive, “It’s been a long time. They should have been gotten him. He should have been arrested. He’s ignorant; he’s arrogant. He thinks he’s above the law. He’s not.”
As of Friday, no criminal charges have been filed against Gordon.
