Nick Gordon, the ex-boyfriend of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter, was ordered to pay million to her family after being deemed 'legally responsible' for Bobbi Kristina's death.ATLANTA — After months of ignoring a civil lawsuit filed against him by Bobbi Kristina Brown's family, her ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon was ordered Thursday by a Fulton County judge to pay the family million for her wrongful death.
"The defendant will not escape justice nor ever profit from his misdeeds. They also said that Gordon is "heartbroken" and called the suit a "fictitious assault."Autopsy results released in March 2016 indicated multiple drugs were involved in Brown's death by drowning, including marijuana, alcohol (ethanol), benzoylecgonine (a cocaine-related substance), benzodiazepines (medications used for sedation or to treat anxiety) and morphine.
We hope that in some small way this will allow Krissy’s family to continue their quest for peace.”“Domestic violence is a horrible reality in our society and Bobbi suffered such horrific pain and degradation at the hands of Nick Gordon, the man she loved and trusted," Hatchett added. But the medical examiner couldn't determine if she killed herself, if someone else killed her or if her death was accidental.
Gordon has not been charged criminally in the case.
He failed to appear for two hearings in the civil case against him regarding Brown's death, and her family won by default.
He was not in court Thursday when the judgment was entered."I am pleased with the outcome of today's court proceedings," he said.
