Nick Gordon Speaks Out Following Bobbi Kristina Brown's Death With Bittersweet Words
It has been almost a month since Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away, but the story surrounding her death continues to be heartbreaking. Of course, one crucial part of the story is how it has affected the people who were close to her, including to her boyfriend, Nick Gordon. On Monday, Aug. 17, Nick Gordon has broke his silence following Bobbi Kristina Brown's death publicly through a Twitter post. Gordon tweeted,
I look at our pics sometimes it makes me smile sometime I cry @REALbkBrown #happymemories. I'm so happy/blessed that I had @REALbkBrown in my life. i will always & forever love you.
Though Gordon's Twitter page is private, Extra shared the tweet on its website.
Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown's daughter passed away on July 26 at the young age of 22, after being in a medically induced coma for several months. Her funeral was on Aug. 1, and a gravesite ceremony was held a few days later. According to Us Weekly, Gordon was reportedly not invited to either ceremony.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed a lawsuit on June 24 (adding an amendment on Aug. 7) in which she accuses Gordon of wrongful death and of giving Brown a "toxic cocktail" of cocaine and alcohol prior to her being found facedown and unconscious in a bathtub on Jan. 31. Gordon has not been charged with any crimes.
In a statement shared with Us Weekly, Hargrove said, "I am deeply saddened by the recent death of Bobbi Kristina Brown. I have filed today an amended complaint against Nicholas Gordon adding a count of wrongful death and for pain and suffering. We will leave no stone unturned in seeking justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown."
A spokesperson for Gordon's lawyer, Jose Baez, released a comment in response to the lawsuit to USA Today, which reads,
The recent lawsuit against Nick is slanderous and meritless. Nick has been heartbroken and destroyed over the loss of his love and it's shameful that such baseless allegations have been presented publicly. Nick has engaged civil counsel and intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously and expose it for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most.
