Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, has died three years after he was found liable for her death.
Gordon's attorney, Joe Habachy, confirmed his death to CNN but did not provide details on the cause. He was 30.
"My heart is heavy today after learning that my long time client Nick Gordon died ... while I cannot speak to the specific circumstances of his death, I can say that it's been truly heartbreaking to have witnessed first hand the total devastation that drug addiction has wreaked upon a group of young friends, all of whom were loved and had immense potential," Habachy said in a statement Wednesday.
Gordon was taken in by Whitney Houston when he was 12 years old and raised alongside the singer's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Gordon and Brown became romantically involved after Houston's death in 2012, and tensions between the Gordon and Houston families over the relationship were part of the storyline on Lifetime's short-lived reality show "The Houstons: On Our Own."
Their relationship was thrust into the spotlight after it became public, followed by the death of Brown after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015. She remained in a coma until her death six months later.
An autopsy declared that drug intoxication and immersion in water were the cause of the pneumonia and brain damage that ultimately led to Brown's death.
No criminal charges were filed against Gordon but he was found legally responsible for Brown's death in a civil case and in 2016, was ordered to pay $36 million to the estate of his late girlfriend.
