The boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown has been found legally responsible for her death.
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter was found unresponsive in a bathtub in early 2015 and died that summer. A medical examiner determined drug intoxication and water immersion ultimately led to her death.

Brown's estate filed a multi-million dollar wrongful death lawsuit against her boyfriend, Nick Gordon. The suit alleges Gordon physically abused Brown and gave her a drug cocktail that caused her brain damage. Gordon's legal team has denied the allegations.
Because Gordon has failed to show up for multiple court dates, a judge in Georgia held him legally responsible for Brown's death.
"It's absolutely reprehensible that he's thumbed his nose at the court," a judge in the case said.
A jury will still have to decide the amount of damages Gordon will have to pay.
