Before Bobbi Kristina Brown was found facedown in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga., home on Jan. 31, she was having problems with her beau, Nick Gordon, a friend is now claiming.

“Pretty soon after we met she started telling about the times [Nick] had been physically abusive and it just kept escalating,” Alex Reid, one of the 22-year-old’s closest friends, tells E! News’ Giuliana Rancic.
“It just kept getting worse and worse… He was known to choke her. Throw her on the walls, punch her in the jaw. Just unbelievable stuff. It was really this off-the-handle temper… He just couldn’t control himself.”

This comes shortly after text messages allegedly sent by Bobbi Kristina revealed she was fighting with Nick prior to her accident.
Earlier today, July 2, it was reported by Radar Online that Steven Stepho, who claims to have sold drugs to Nick and Bobbi, was found dead of a suspected overdose.
