Bobbi Kristina's ex-fiancé, Nick Gordon died on New Year's day after he was rushed to a hospital for what was is believed to be a drug overdose after partying with friends.


Nick Gordon, the former fiancé to Bobbi Kristina, died on New Year’s day. Sources told Daily Mail, Gordon suffered a series of heart attacks before his friends rushed to an intensive care unit in Florida.

His exact cause of death has not been confirmed yet, however, it is believed he had been taking drugs when he passed out, and his friends dropped him off at a hospital and drove off. His younger brother Jack Walker Junior took to Facebook to share the tragic news.

At the time of his death, Jack was by Nick's side as doctors tried but ultimately struggled to revive him. In part of another message confirming his brother's death, Walker revealed:


"I love you so much big brother I hope you heard me talking to you at your bedside you are with me and I can feel it I love you I love you I love you watch over me and your nieces."

Nick had a long history of drug abuse. He was the unofficially adopted son to Whitney Houston. Having been raised along with her daughter, Bobbi, they made headlines when the two started dating and got engaged.

In the years following Whitney's death from drowning in a bath, Bobbi would follow the same path when she died face down in a tub with a cocktail of drugs in her system on January 31, 2015.
