It was Gordon, 28, who found the 22-year-old face down in the bathtub after a night of partying and arguing and attempted to revive her in scenes that bore a chilling resemblance to the circumstances of her own mother, Whitney Houston’s passing.
Brown’s autopsy revealed she had marijuana, alcohol, a cocaine-related substance, anxiety medication, and morphine in her system, but her manner of death has been labeled ‘undetermined’ as they can’t tell if it was intentional or accidental.
Gordon was held legally accountable for Bobbi Kristina’s death in 2015 after he didn’t show up for a court hearing in the $36million civil suit brought against him by her family.

For Bobbi Kristina, Gordon tells DailyMailTV, it was the beginning of a descent into drug use that spiraled out of control and ended in her death. For him it was the end of a relationship that has long perplexed observers.
Gordon was 17 and Bobbi Kristina 14 when Houston invited him to move into their home in Georgia.
His own mother, he said, ‘wasn’t very good’ at the time. She had left the state to be with another man. He didn’t want to go with her.
He had met Bobbi Kristina at school but both dropped out to be tutored at home after he moved in to the Houston household.
Recalling Houston he said: ‘It was like two or three months after I moved in she began to ask me, “Call me mom.”
‘We immediately clicked. From day one it was a really, really cool relationship so I’ll miss it forever.
‘It was like a mother, son relationship. It really was.’
As for Bobbi Kristina she was like his ‘little wing man’ at first. Gordon described them as ‘the three musketeers.’
And while Bobby Brown was ‘busy creating his other family, his new family with his new wife,’ Gordon claimed to have taken on the role of the man of the house – their ‘protector.’
It was a role for which, in truth, he was ill equipped.
Emotionally and financially he said he was treated, ‘like a prince,’ though today he claims that he definitely gave more than he got – a statement on which he will not elaborate.
Family members have leveled the allegation that the shift of Gordon’s relationship with Bobbi Kristina from siblings to romantic partners was motivated by money.
