Nick Gordon has been found responsible for the death of his ex Bobbi Kristina Brown after failing to show up for court on Friday.
A hearing had been scheduled for 9:30am at Atlanta’s Fulton County Superior Court to hear motions pertaining to the wrongful death suit filed last October by the estate of Bobbi Kristina against Gordon and for a judgment to be entered in the case, but he decided to skip the proceedings.
Judge T. Jackson Bedford said of Gordon, who had elected to represent himself in the case: ‘I do not like people thumbing their nose at the court.’
A jury will now hear the case and decide on the damages owed by Gordon to the estate, who had been seeking $50million in their lawsuit.
Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, passed away at the age of 22 on July 26, 2015.
She spent the final six months of her life in a medically induced coma after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home.
