Judge Orders Late Bobbi Kristina’s, Nick Gordon To pay $36 million To Her Family

Nick Gordon, the ex-boyfriend of late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, was ordered to pay $36 million to her family after being deemed ‘legally responsible’ for Bobbi Kristina’s death when he didn’t show up in court for the hearing.

Bobbi Kristina died in July 2015, six months after she was found unresponsive face down in a bath tub at her suburban Atlanta townhouse in January 2015. She was 22.


The lawsuit accused Gordon of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and transferring money from Brown’s account into his own without authorization as causes.

UsToday reports that after testimonials from Bobby Brown, and friends of Bobbi Kristina, Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford, assessed the damages and losses related to the January incident to determine the value of Bobbi Kristina’s life.

The judge awarded more than $36 million, broken down as:

  • $1.575 million for money taken from the account, including alleged stolen rings
  • $250,000 in punitive damages
  • $1.37 million for assault and battery
  • $13.8 million for pain and suffering as a result of assault
  • $4.2 million in punitive damages
  • $15 million for present value of life

“We intend to pursue, with all vigor, the full collection of the judgment, The defendant will not escape justice nor ever profit from his misdeeds. We hope that in some small way this will allow Krissy’s family to continue their quest for peace. Domestic violence is a horrible reality in our society and Bobbi suffered such horrific pain and degradation at the hands of Nick Gordon, the man she loved and trusted. No one should suffer the way she did and the judge sent a strong message in the award of punitive damages that this despicable behavior is inexcusable and will not be tolerated.” said lenda Hatchett, a representative of the Brown estate.

Bobbi Kristina’s died since January 2015, no one, including Nick Gordon, has been charged with a crime.
