On July 16, 2015, Bobby Brown‘s world was rocked when he lost his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, at 22 years old — and to this day, the “My Prerogative” singer feels BK’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, wasn’t served the justice he deserved. Those who followed the devastating story know Nick was found legally responsible for Bobbi’s death in October when he failed to show up for a court date.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Bobby explained what he would like to see happen. “Justice? If he was locked up somewhere where somebody can rape him. That’s just how I feel. He raped me by taking my daughter away,” he told the publication, adding he doesn’t think Nick was punished harshly enough “because he’s still walking around free.”
Bobbi’s estate slapped Nick with a wrongful death lawsuit, which stated he injected his girlfriend with a “toxic” mixture amid a violent altercation. “We have said all along that we believed Nick Gordon was responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown. This judgment confirms our belief. Mr. Gordon had every opportunity to appear in court and attempt to clear his name. He declined.” She first entered a medically-induced coma in January 2015 after being found unconscious in a bathtub — eerily similar to the death scene of her mother, Whitney Houston, in 2012.
Her father also released a statement at the time, reading, “I am pleased with the outcome of today’s court proceedings. All I ever wanted was answers relating to who and what caused my daughter’s death,” he said. “Today’s judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon. Now I need to process all the emotions I have and lean on God to get me and my family through this.” Our continued thoughts are with the family.
