Nick Gordon has been found legally responsible for the death of 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown after failing to show up to a scheduled court date, E! News reports.

This comes shortly after BK’s estate filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Nick; the suit alleged that she died after the two had a violent altercation and he injected her with a “toxic” mixture.

According to the judge in the case, Nick admitted guilt through omission after failing to show up to court on multiple occasions.

In a statement, Bobbi’s legal team explained, “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.”

Bobbi’s father, Bobby, released his own statement expressing his feelings about the outcome.

“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.”

Bobbi passed away back in July 2015 after spending seven months in a coma.
