Since the untimely death of his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown in 2015, pop singer Bobby Brown vowed to make sure her former boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was held accountable. In light of the recent allegations that Gordon attacked his current girlfriend,
TMZ reports that speaking on behalf of Bobby Brown, attorney Christopher Brown stated that the “Don’t Be Cruel” singer is extending help to Gordon’s girlfriend, Laura Leal, who for the second time, contacted police after Gordon reportedly attacked her.
The latest incident reportedly occurred on Saturday night as the pair left a bar in the Seminole, Florida, area. Leal told authorities that Gordon pulled her hair and smacked her in the face several times. Gordon was arrested on a domestic violence charge. He was released on $500 bail and due back in court next month.
Brown is offering Leal services through the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity House, a “24 hour crisis intervention, emergency transitional shelter,” according to its website. The non-profit organization was created in 2015 by Bobby Brown, in an effort to help victims of domestic abuse.
“Domestic violence killed my daughter … I do not want to see any more families destroyed at the hands of domestic violence and I do not want any more women to suffer like my daughter did.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Gordon was arrested last June when Leal accused him of hitting her and locking her in their shared home on Friday night. According to authorities, Gordon was arrested inside a clubhouse near the couple’s Sanford residence.
The case was later dropped when Leal reportedly became dissatisfied with the legal process and didn’t cooperate with pursuing charges.
Gordon, whose been living in the Florida area since 2015, was found legally responsible last year for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston. Bobbi Kristina passed away on July 16, 2015, after fighting for her life for months inside several hospitals and then ultimately, a hospice center.
Bobbi Kristina’s official cause of death was listed as cardiac arrest. According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office, she had a mixture of marijuana, alcohol, morphine and other drugs in her system, which led to pneumonia, and ultimately, cardiac arrest. Gordon was accused of administering the dangerous cocktail of drugs to Bobbi Kristina.
Gordon has long been suspected of physically and emotionally abusing Bobbi Kristina, yet he was never criminally charged for the alleged abuse or for her death. He was found legally responsible for her death after he failed to appear in civil court to answer charges. In November 2016, a Fulton County, Georgia, judge ordered Gordon to pay $36 million in damages to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family.
