A little over a year since the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown and some of the many questions surrounding the tragic passing of Whitney Houston’s baby girl have finally been answered.
11Alive News reports that a Fulton County judge ruled Nick Gordon is “legally responsible” for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death after the defendant failed to appear in court on Friday. The daughter of Bobby Brown and Houston, she was Bobby’s fifth child and the only daughter of Whitney. Bobbi Kristina was only 22 years old when she passed.
The conservator of Brown’s estate filed a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Gordon in August 2015. The suit accused Gordon of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and transferring money from Brown’s account into his own without authorization. The lawsuit sought $50 million in damages.

Earlier this year, Roswell Police confirmed to Channel 2 Action News that her case had become a criminal investigation. Bobbi Kristina also had unexplained injuries after they found her face down and unresponsive in a bathtub. That investigation is ongoing, but Gordon has never been criminally charged.
No word yet on an comment from Gordon on the outcome of the lawsuit.
