“ 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 , ” the Atlanta- based Habachy told AFP by email.

In November 2016 a US judge ordered Gordon to pay more than $ 36 million in a wrongful death suit brought by the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

In an eerie repeat of her mother ’ s death , she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Atlanta -area home , while Gordon and a guest were there .

Gordon spent years being raised by Houston in her home and grew up alongside Bobbi Kristina , although he was never formally adopted by the pop singer .

The lawsuit filed by Brown’ s estate said he had lashed out at her in a fit of jealousy that evening after being “ out all night on a cocaine and drinking binge . ”

According to the wrongful death suit filed in Atlanta , Georgia , Gordon gave “ Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage . ”

The medical examiner ’ s office said it was unclear if Brown’ s death was accidental or intentional .

An autopsy determined that she had marijuana , alcohol , cocaine and morphine in her body .

“ Despite all of the incredible challenges Nick faced over the last few years I can honestly say that he worked hard to hold his head up and stay sober and that he genuinely wanted a happy healthy life with his family more than anything else, ” Habachy said .

“ My heart goes out to the family and friends Nick leaves behind and to any other families dealing with the losses and heartache caused by drugs . ”
Whitney Houston was found face down in a bathtub at a Los Angeles hotel in February 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards .
