Nick Gordon was the ex-fiancé of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown and he passed away at the age of 30 from an overdose on New Year’s Day in Florida. He suffered a series of heart attacks after the alleged drug overdose and later died at Altamonte Springs Hospital.
Gordon’s attorney Joe S Habachy confirmed his client’s death in a statement Wednesday to The Associated Press. The Atlanta attorney did not give a cause of death or say where it occurred.
“My heart is heavy today after learning that my long-time client Nick Gordon died … while I cannot speak to the specific circumstances of his death, I can say that it’s been truly heartbreaking to have witnessed the total devastation that drug addiction has wreaked upon a group of young friends, all of whom were loved and had immense potential,” Habachy said in a statement Wednesday.
Furthermore, Nick Gordan’s death comes nearly five years after Brown, the daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015. She died after six months in a coma.
Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away on July 26, 2015, and she was an American reality television personality, media personality, and singer. She was the daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.
Brown died from lobar pneumonia on July 26, 2015, after being in a coma for nearly six months. In a subsequent development, Gordon, who was later found guilty by a civil court in Ms. Brown’s death and ordered to pay 36 million dollars to her estate, died in Florida from several heart attacks after a heroin overdose on January 1, 2020.
How old was Nick Gordon? He was 30 years old during the time of his death and at the age of 12, Nick was taken in by Whitney Houston and raised alongside the singer’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
His brother, Junior Walker, mourned his death in a Facebook post, writing, “God why did I have to lose my brother on New Years.” “All I can do is cry,” the post continued. Gordon’s brother, Junior Walker, said he’d just talked to him the night before.
Gordon wore a large tattoo of Houston’s face on his arm and called the singer “mom,” but she never fully adopted him or included him in the will.
“Despite all of the incredible challenges Nick faced over the last few years I can honestly say that he worked hard to hold his head up and stay sober and that he genuinely wanted a happy healthy life with his family more than anything else,” Habachy said in a statement.
