Nick Gordon causes 'problems' for Bobbi Kristina Brown

Nick Gordon causes 'problems' for Bobbi Kristina Brown

Nick Gordon caused "problems" in Bobbi Kristina Brown's life.

The former boyfriend of the late aspiring actress - who tragically passed away this year at the age of 22 following six months in a coma - made things difficult for the star, according to her aunt Pat Houston, who filed a restraining order against Nick last year.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "Where the world saw that she was angry and mad at me, she was texting me all along.

"I really tried to show her [that] I'm going to do this to let you know that you don't have to be afraid of anything. I got you. External attraction can really cause problem."

Meanwhile, Nick is at the centre of a $40 million lawsuit after Bobbi Kristina's estate claims he is responsible for her death after he "injected" her with a "toxic mixture".

A statement from the estate reads: "Bobbi Kristina died after a violent altercation with the defendant [Nick Gordon] after which he placed her in the bathtub unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture."

However, Nick has vehemently denied any wrongdoings, with his lawyer insisting the claims have "several unsupported conclusory, untrue, criminal accusations that Defendant Nicholas Gordon committed acts that he simply did not do."
