The former fiancé of Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly had “black stuff” coming out of his mouth during an alleged overdose that led to his death. TMZ revealed a 9-1-1 dispatch call earlier this week, with the 9-1-1 operator saying in the clip, “caller advised black stuff coming out of his mouth and he is not breathing.”
TMZ reports that the 30-year-old went into cardiac arrest and had black liquid coming out of his mouth on New Year’s Day. Someone called the police in Maitland, Florida. Police went to the Sheraton Hotel in the early hours of Wednesday morning and discovered Gordon dead in his hotel room, WKMG news reported.
The outlet claims Gordon was subsequently taken to the Altamonte Springs Hospital, where authorities pronounced him dead not long after. His attorney, Joe. S. Habachy confirmed that Nick had passed away, but only insinuated drugs may have played a role.
In a statement to the aforementioned news station, Nick’s lawyer stated he couldn’t comment on the circumstances surrounding his client’s death, however, he noted it was “heartbreaking” to see the intimate circle of friends slowly die from drug addiction.
Habachy went on to say that Nick worked very hard at trying to stay clean and definitely wanted to live the rest of his days in happiness and sobriety. Habachy expressed his condolences and support for any families out there dealing with a drug-addicted family member or friend.
Reported by The Daily Mail, the outlet claims Gordon was a notorious drug abuser, but it’s not 100% certain how he died. Famously, Nick was there with Bobbi Kristina Brown when she died back in January of 2015 at age 22.
Authorities discovered Kristina unconscious in her bathtub. In a toxicology test, it was later revealed she had a variety of narcotics in her system, including prescription drugs, alcohol, in addition to morphine and cocaine. Following six months in a coma, she passed away.
Bobbi was the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. Coincidentally, Whitney Houston drowned in a bathtub in February 2012.
