Nick Gordon will pay for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.
E! News confirms that Gordon failed to appear at his scheduled court date and has been found legally responsible for her death.
The judge says Gordon was a no-show on two separate occasions.
Back in 2015, Brown’s estate filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that Whitney Houston’s daughter died after an altercation with her boyfriend.
They said he placed her in a bathtub, injected her with a toxic mixture and left her unconscious.
The suit also accuses him of domestic abuse and illegally transferring money payments into his own account during hospitalization.
“We have said all along that we believed Nick Gordon was responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown. This judgment confirms our belief. Mr. Gordon had every opportunity to appear in Court and attempt to clear his name. He declined,” a statement to E! News from Brown’s legal counsel read.
Brown also gave a statement saying:
“I am pleased with the outcome of today’s court proceedings. All I ever wanted was answers relating to who and what caused my daughter’s death. Today’s judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon. Now I need to process all the emotions I have and lean on God to get me and my family through this.”
No criminal charges have been filed – Gordon is awaiting a trial.
