Nick Gordon, the boyfriend to the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, the late Bobbi Kristina Brown has been ordered to pay $36 million to her estate.
A Judge passed the judgment against Gordon on Thursday as a result of a wrongful death suit filed by her family.
In September, Gordon was found legally responsible for Brown’s death after she was found face down and unresponsive in the bathtub of their shared home in Atlanta. An autopsy declared that drug intoxication and immersion in water were the cause of the pneumonia and brain damage that ultimately led to the 22-year-old’s death.

This ruling forces Nick Gordon to pay any of his future earnings to the estate of Brown. Her father, singer Bobby Brown, after the ruling issued a statement expressing his happiness “I am pleased with the outcome of today’s court proceedings. I do know that Mr. Gordon will be unable to slander my daughter’s name in the future or obtain any benefits from the use of Krissy’s name.” He said
He also called on the authorities to criminally charge Gordon in his daughter’s death. “The delay in that matter is of great concern to me and my family,” the singer said. “We need for District Attorney Howard to act now.”
