Nick Gordon has been found liable for the death of Bobbi Kristina. And a judge is demanding he fork over $36 million. How SWAY? Get the details and watch Bobby Brown’s testimony inside…
Things have gone from bad to worse for Nick Gordon.
An Atlanta judge has found Nick Gordon liable for the death of his late girlfriend Bobbi Kristina. He’s being ordered to pay a whooping $36 million in the wrongful death case brought against him by her estate.
You'll recall, Bobbi K was found submerged under water and unresponsive in a bathtub inside her home in January 2015, eerily similar to how her mother Whitney Houston died just before the 2012 Grammy Awards in Beverly Hills.
Since Nick failed to meet court deadlines in the civil suit, Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford awarded damages of $36,250,000. According to an emailed statement, the judge’s order said that means the conservator of her estate wins by default since he didn’t meet the deadlines.
We’re scratching our heads as to how Nick will be able to pay this massive amount of money.
During today’s hearing Bobbi K’s father Bobby Brown took the stand to testify in the civil case saying his daughter had unlimited earning potential before Nick helped take her life. Bobbi K’s sister LaPrincia Brown also took the stand. Nick was NOT in court today.
TMZ broke down how the judge came up with the amount:
-- Conversion (stealing funds/assets) at $1.5 mil with punitive damages of $250k
-- Assault and battery/medical damages at $1.3 mil, plus $4.2 mil because Gordon was under the influence of drugs and alcohol
-- Pain and suffering at $13 mil
-- Loss of life at $15 mil, including her net worth and future potential income
According to Dontaye Carter, a spokesman for Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, Bobbi Kristina’s death is still under criminal investigation.
