Judge Orders Nick Gordon to Pay Bobbi Kristina’s Estate $36 Million
It's been nearly two years since Bobbi Kristina was tragically found unresponsive in her Atlanta home's bathtub, leading to her fall into a coma for 6 months, and later passing away in July 2015.
The estate of the late daughter of Whitney Houston filed a wrongful death lawsuit against her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, shortly after her death. The case has finally been closed, and the family is able to put the legal hardship behind them, but Gordon is about to come into some serious financial woes.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford has ordered Gordon to pay $36,250,000. million to Bobbi's estate, after it was ruled in September that he repeatedly failed to meet court deadlines in the civil suit. His neglect to meet deadlines led to the conservator of her estate to win by default.
Attorney David Ware commented on the closing of the case, stating, “There was an urgent need, in my mind, to get justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown and that’s why I took the case. We intend to pursue, with all vigor, the full collection of the judgment. We hope that in some small way this will allow Krissy’s family to continue their quest for peace.”
For the past year, Bobbi Kristina's family has publicly been sharing their beliefs that Nick Gordon was responsible for the incident that killed her. They accused Gordon of giving her a "toxic cocktail" before he put her face-down in the water of the tub. He has not been charged as of yet for any involvement in her death. What are your thoughts on Gordon paying Bobbi Kristina's estate?
