He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends. "GOD WHY I DID I HAVE TO LOSE MY BROTHER ON NEW YEAR'S", he wrote.

Gordon protested his innocence and insists he did everything he could to resuscitate the 22-year-old budding singer after finding her unconscious at their Alpharetta, Georgia home.

Almost four years after the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, her ex-fiance, Nick Gordon, has died in Florida of a reported drug overdose. "I will be forever grateful that my God afforded a small moment at the very end of Nick's life, and I was able to hold his hand as he journeyed on".

According to the Daily Mail, Gordon suffered a series of heart attacks on Wednesday and was admitted to the intensive care unit at Altamonte Springs Hospital in Florida, where he was later pronounced dead.

Gordon's lawyer, Joe S. Habachy, also spoke to People magazine, saying he was saddened to see the demise of his client though "drug addiction". Many people suspected Gordon of foul play in Bobbi Kristina's death.

An Atlanta judge ruled in 2016 that Gordon was civilly liable for Brown's drug-related death after he failed to appear in court. Houston was placed into a medically induced coma and died six months later. An autopsy showed that she had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body, but the medical examiner couldn't determine if she killed herself, if someone else killed her or if her death was accidental.

Gordon was never charged in the case, but he was found responsible in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Gordon wore a large tattoo of Houston's face on his arm and called the singer "mom", but the music superstar never fully adopted him or included him in her will. Houston died in 2012 after she drowned in a bathtub.

A multimillion-dollar civil suit filed by the conservator of Bobbi Kristina Brown's estate alleged that Gordon had physically abused Bobbi Kristina Brown - including knocking out teeth and dragging her up stairs - and had controlled her and had taken a significant amount of money from her without permission.
