Nick Gordon Ordered to Pay Bobbi Kristina Brown's Estate a Massive $36 Million

Nick Gordon was found liable for the death of his late girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown and he has been ordered to pay $36 million to her estate.

The family of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown‘s late daughter sued Gordon in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Bobby argued that his daughter was going to go into the entertainment field and that she had high prospects due to her famous parents.

“She was an entertainer. If you were around her, all you would do was laugh. She told a lot of jokes. She was always the life of the party…and anywhere she went,” Bobby said on the stand. “I know she had the talent to be successful.”
