Bobby Brown is a man who has endured far too much tragedy in his life- especially in the last four years. First with the death of his ex-wife and legendary singer, Whitney Houston- a sudden and unexpected passing that shook Bobby, his family, and the world to its core. Then, only three years later, he would lose the daughter he shared with Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown to…eerily similar circumstances.
Both women were found with a concoction of drugs in their systems.
Both mother and daughter were discovered partially submerged in bathtubs.
Both women were in the presence of Nick Gordon at the time of their deaths.
Recognizing these striking similarities, Bobby Brown and the Houston family have been quite vocal regarding their suspicions of Nick Gordon and his involvement in both deaths. Some have alleged he supplied both Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown with the substances that contributed to their deaths. Others believe physical assault was involved in the incident which lead to the death of Bobbi Kristina.
For those who don’t recall or did not know, the relationship between Nick Gordon, Whitney Houston, and Bobbi Kristina Brown is a complex one. Before her death, Whitney Houston acted as godmother to Nick Gordon; because of this, Bobbi Kristina and Nick grew up together, forming a close bond. Following Whitney’s death, Nick Gordon became a confidante and comforter for Bobbi Kristina as she struggled to cope.
That bond grew even deeper from there, leading to their surprising engagement- something Bobby Brown and others questioned and did not support. Unfortunately Bobbi Kristina would never make it down the aisle.
For the first time since the death of Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown has spoken out about his belief that Nick Gordon knows more about the deaths of these two important women in his life than he is letting on. In an exclusive 20/20 interview with Robin Roberts, Bobby said:
“It’s not a mystery to me- the same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney. There is only one person that was around both occasions. He knows what happened. I don’t know what happened that night but he does.”
Brown recently filed a $10 million lawsuit against Nick Gordon for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s wrongful death.
