Nick Gordon is said to be in ‘a dark place’ after being found legally responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina back in September.
A default judgement was made against Nick after he failed to show up to court for a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina’s estate. It’s unclear at this point how much money he’ll be required to pay — but it could be $50 million.

Gordon, 26, currently lives as a recluse in Florida, a source told People on Thursday.
“He doesn’t have that type of cash, so you can’t get blood from a stone,” the source said. “But it bothers him that there’s this perception that he is responsible for her death, because he’s not. He feels like everyone has made him a scapegoat, and it’s not fair.”
“He’s not doing well at all,” the source added. “He is low energy, just really unhappy. He knew that it was a big deal for him to appear in court, but he just couldn’t do it. So he skipped it and the judgment was entered against him. He’s just in a dark place.”
Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta home in January 2015. She died six months later in hospice care.
In a legal filing, Bobbi Kristina’s estate claimed she died following “a violent altercation [with Gordon]” that left her “battered and bruised, with a tooth knocked out … after which he placed her in the bathtub unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture.”
Gordon’s attorneys urged Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard to acknowledge there was no evidence of wrongdoing in Bobbi Kristina’s death.
