Bobby Brown wants Nick in prison

Bobby Brown thinks Nick Gordon should be in jail over the death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.

The 'Two Can Play That Game' singer was left devastated when 22-year-old Bobbi - his daughter with late ex-wife Whitney Houston - died in July 2015, six months after she was found unresponsive in her bathtub and wants Nick prosecuted for his involvement.

He said: "I think he should be in prison."

In September, Nick was found legally responsible for her passing after he failed to show at two civil wrongful death hearings.

And Bobby is determined to get justice for his daughter and will tell TV host Dr. Oz: "We're not after any money."

In 2012, Bobby's ex Whitney died from accidental drowning, with drug use a contributing factor, with her lifeless body discovered in the bath of her hotel suite.

Because of the circumstances of Whitney's death, Bobby, 47, always knew there was something suspicious about their daughter Bobbi - who had a mixture of marijuana, alcohol, a cocaine-related substance, sedatives, anti-anxiety medications and morphine when she was found unconscious - also being discovered in a bath tub.

He recently said: "My daughter was afraid of tubs because of what happened to her mom. So I know she wouldn't have gotten in the tub.

"I mean it's crazy because the tub wasn't even full of water. It had a dustpan in it, in the bottom of the tub."

Following the ruling against Nick, his former lawyer insisted it was "without merit" because the decision was made simply based on Nick's failure to show at two hearings.

Randy Kessler said: "As I understand it - and I am not representing [Gordon] - he did not have a lawyer for this civil case and because he failed to respond or to appear, the court simply granted Plaintiff's requests to assess liability.

"To me, that does not establish that he did anything wrong. It is not a decision on the merits."

Following the decision, a jury will now be tasked with deciding what damages Nick will have to pay to the late star's estate.
