The late Bobbi Kristina Brown’s ex-fiancée Nick Gordon has died from a suspected drugs overdose, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed.
Sources said Gordon, 30, had a series of heart attacks after he was rushed into intensive care in Florida amid New Year’s celebrations.
DailyMail.com understands his loved ones were informed of his death early today after doctors were unable to revive the prolific drug abuser.
‘God, why did I have to lose my brother on New Years,’ Nick’s brother Junior Walker wrote on Facebook.
He also posted a touching family photo of the two siblings as little boys, adding: ‘All I can do is cry’.
Gordon is notorious for the 2015 death of Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, who spent six months in a coma after she was found unconscious in a bathtub with a slew of drugs in her system.
Her controlling ex-fiancée never faced criminal charges but was held legally responsible for her wrongful death in a civil case.
‘It’s early days but the suggestion is he was taking drugs with friends and he passed out. They drove him to the hospital, took him inside and then left him there,’ said an insider.
‘Whatever you think of Nick and his lifestyle, it’s terribly sad that his supposed friends just dumped him and drove away.’
Gordon is thought to have been living with friends in recent months after his mom moved to Hawaii.
He had split from on-off girlfriend Laura Leal, whom he was accused of attacking on several occasions leading to several arrests for domestic abuse.

In an exclusive 2017 interview with DailyMail.com, Leal described how Gordon held her captive in his mother’s former home in Sanford, Florida before savagely beating her up after a night of drinking.
However she later dropped charges of domestic violence, battery and false imprisonment insisting she was as much to blame for the dust-up as he was.
‘Laura is absolutely devastated. They were seeing less of each other recently because they wanted some space,’ the source added.
‘But she cared deeply for him and was in a state of shock when she got the phone call.’
Bobbi Kristina spent six months in a coma and never recovered after she was found submerged in a bathtub with drugs in her system and bruises to her chest in July 2015.
