Bobbi Kristina Brown’s last boyfriend before her passing, Nick Gordon, has been arrested after current companion, Laura Leal, accused him of beating her this weekend. This is their second major domestic dispute.
People reports Gordon, 29, was arrested in Florida on a domestic battery charge Saturday morning. Gordon told police upon their arrival to his home that Leal ripped his shirt and threw a bottle at him, describing her as “crazy.” He claims her attack was unprovoked while admitting they both had been drinking before the altercation.
Leal claims she picked Gordon up from a bar and that he punched her in the face while she was driving. He also allegedly pulled her hair and “stated to her that he should make her wreck the vehicle,” according to the police report.
Officers found Leal with a slightly swollen bottom lip, which included dried blood. While they took photos of her injuries, she refused medical treatment, the report reads.
Gordon was released on a bond of $500 and is due back in court April 6.
Previously, Leal had Gordon locked up on domestic battery and false imprisonment charges after filing a police report alleging he beat her and locked her in her home.
Bobby Brown is currently hoping to have Gordon arrested for the death of daughter Bobbi Kristina. He also gave a statement on Gordon’s current case through attorney Christopher Brown, who told TMZ the New Edition singer is open to helping Leal through the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity House.
“Domestic violence killed my daughter … I do not want to see any more families destroyed at the hands of domestic violence and I do not want any more women to suffer like my daughter did.”
