Bobby Brown Wants Nick Gordon Locked Up, Doesn’t Believe Whitney Houston Died of Drug Overdose
Nearly three years after Bobbi Kristina’s death, Bobby Brown feels justice hasn’t been served in regards to his daughter’s passing. Although her ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon was ordered to pay her estate $36 million in her wrongful death case, Brown feels that wasn’t enough.
"Because he's still walking around free," Brown told Rolling Stone. "Justice? If he was locked up somewhere where somebody can rape him. That's just how I feel. He raped me by taking my daughter away."
Elsewhere in the interview, Brown told the magazine that he didn't think Houston died from drugs.
"She was really working hard on herself to try to be a sober person and, um [pauses] she was a great woman," he said, before his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, interjected herself into the conversation.
Brown believes that drugs may have played a part but it was not the exact cause of Houston's demise. When asked what did he think attributed to her death if it wasn't drugs, Brown replied, "Just being broken-hearted."
For the record, an autopsy report concluded that Houston died on Feb. 11, 2015 due to "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."
In addition, the autopsy report stated that "[Whitney] possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications and alcohol." Her body was discovered face down in the Beverly Hills hotel room bath tub with a "bloody purge coming from her nose."
The beloved pop icon was 48 at the time of her death.
