He is said to have suffered multiple heart attacks after he was rushed to Florida hospital during the new year celebrations.
1 Gordon's brother, Jack Walker Jr., shared the news by writing, "GOD WHY I DID I HAVE TO LOSE MY BROTHER ON NEW YEARS", and adding, "All I can do is cry". Although he has been followed closely by police for a while, he was never charged in relation to the death of Whitney Houston's daughter.
Megastar Whitney Houston took Nick in when he was just 12, and raised the youngster alongside her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Bobbi Kristina Brown's ex-fiancée Nick Gordon has died from a suspected drugs overdose.
"We are devastated by the loss of my attractive brother. This is a tragic ending to Nick's troubled life". She was placed in a medically induced coma and died six months later. Rest in peace, Nick Gordon.
An autopsy of Bobbi Kristina Brown found several narcotics and prescription drugs in her body, including marijuana, alcohol and medications used for sedation or to treat anxiety.
Apparently a man who claims to be Gordons brother said that he died of an overdose and head "black stuff" foaming out his mouth. Gordon failed to appear for two hearings in the civil case in Brown's death, and her family won by default, according to CNN.
Gordon's attorney, Joe Habachy, confirmed his death to CNN but did not provide details on the cause. He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends, Nick's battle in life was not an easy one.
Gordon and Bobbi Kristina went public with their romance shortly after Houston's death.
In an exclusive 2017 interview with DailyMail.com Leal described how Gordon held her captive in his mother's former home in Sanford, Florida before savagely beating her up after a night of drinking. Nick Gordon was ordered to pay $36 million to Bobbi's family.
