Nick Gordon, the ex-boyfriend of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina who was found liable in her 2015 death, died on Wednesday at the age of 30. Gordon’s brother, Jack Walker Jr., confirmed his death to People. While an official cause of death has yet to be revealed, Walker Jr. told People that Gordon suffered a drug overdose in Florida.
“We are devastated by the loss of my beautiful brother,” Walker Jr. said in a statement. “He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends. Nick’s battle in life was not an easy one. I will be forever grateful that my God afforded a small moment at the very end of Nick’s life, and I was able to hold his hand as he journeyed on.”
Gordon lived with the Houston’s as a teen and subsequently began dating Bobbi Kristina. The two were engaged in 2012, though they never legally married. Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Atlanta home in 2015; she spent nearly six months in a coma before her death at age 22 at a hospice care facility. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office ruled the death a combination of drug intoxication and immersion in water.
Prayers to his family.
