It’s been two years since Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of singer Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was found unconscious in her bathtub. After several months of medical treatment, the 22-year-old was pronounced dead.
After her death, the public desperately searched for someone to blame. Reports for her cause of death were mixed; some claimed suicide, while others insisted accidental causes.
Georgia courts ended that speculation last September when a judge ruled that Brown’s longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was “legally responsible” for her death.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the suit claimed Gordon was responsible for “assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress” as well as meddling in Brown’s personal finances.
The suit alleged that Gordon gave Brown a “toxic cocktail,” rendering the young girl unconscious. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that marijuana, alcohol, a cocaine-related substance, benzodiazepines, and morphine were found in her system at the time of death.Maury Phillips/Getty Images
Courts ordered Gordon to pay $36 million in damages to the Brown estate.
Seven months later, Gordon is making headlines once again.
On Saturday, TMZ reported that Gordon was taken into police custody in Sanford, Florida, on charges of domestic violence and kidnapping his current girlfriend.
Sources close to the victim told TMZ that Gordon assaulted his girlfriend to the point of hospitalization after an argument.
According to TMZ, Gordon started “punching and hitting her and refused to let her leave” after the girlfriend voiced concerns with his behavior at a local sports bar.
Police reports claimed that the girlfriend was only able to leave the premises after waking up Gordon’s mother, who shares her home with Gordon. Gordon’s mother then drove the victim to her sister’s house. She was taken to the hospital soon after.
People confirmed that the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report filed by Laura Leil alleging Gordon held her in her own home after beating her Friday night.
Authorities added that Gordon’s bond was set at $15,500 — $500 for the domestic battery charge and $15,000 for the false imprisonment charge.
