Nick Gordon to pay $36 Million to the Estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown
Nick Gordon was found liable in the amount of $36,256,918 in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by Bobbi Kristina’s estate this past September. That ruling came after he failed to appear for a mandatory court appearance in Atlanta, despite the fact that he had no legal counsel and chose to represent himself in the civil case. Like they always say, a man who represents himself has a fool for a client.
A day after the verdict was read, lawyers for the Brown family are made it clear that they intend to do everything in their power to get the full judgment out of Gordon. Craig Terrett, the attorney for Bobby Brown, tells DailyMail.com that, “We intend to enforce the judgment against Gordon. Our first step will be to retain a collections attorney to pursue all available avenues.” He added that, “We understand that collecting the full judgment will be difficult but we want to make sure he never profits from her death. When he finally climbs out from under the rock that he is hiding under, we will be there to greet him.”
Nick Gordon has not been seen nor has be bothered to show up to any of the hearings regarding the civil case. He actually hasn’t been seen out in public since September. Getting the money is going to hard because Gordon is currently employed and pretty much has been since he and Bobbi Kristina were together. Following the death of Bobbi Kristina, he did manage to make some money doing the talk show circuit.
The attorney, Terrett, also told The Daily Mail that now that the wrongful death lawsuit has been settled, he and the family are hoping that criminal charges will be filed. He said, “We are also hopeful that District Attorney, Paul Howard, will see this as an opportunity to complete his investigation and bring criminal charges against Nick Gordon.”
This story is just tragedy all around. Nick Gordon has been acting super shady about the death of Bobbi Kristina. It has been suggested that he did want not want to show up to the civil trial because he would have to testify under oath and he did not want to give the state any addition evidence against him in the death of Bobbi Kristina. We highly doubt that the Brown estate will ever see a dime of that money.
