We are revisiting the timeline of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death, followed by Gordon’s in this post from February 2018.
Nick Gordon was found liable for the death of girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown back in 2016 and was then ordered to pay her estate $36 million in damages. Although that verdict pleased her father, Bobby Brown, it still wasn’t enough consolation for the heartbroken parent.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the former New Edition member says Gordon should be behind bars for causing and/or contributing to Bobbi Kristina’s death.
When asked what real “justice” would look like, Brown had this to say:
“Justice? If he was locked up somewhere where somebody can rape him. That’s just how I feel. He raped me by taking my daughter away.”
See the Q&A below:
In 2016, Nick Gordon was ordered to pay $36 million to the estate of your daughter. Do you feel there has been justice related to her death?
No, not yet.
Because he’s still walking around free.
What does justice look like to you?
Justice? If he was locked up somewhere where somebody can rape him. That’s just how I feel. He raped me by taking my daughter away.
