Bobbi Kristina Brown was an American reality television star, media personality, and singer who lived from March 4, 1993, to July 26, 2015. She was the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, both singers.
Brown wanted to follow in her parents’ footsteps and become a singer, actor, and dancer. She performed in a number of television shows and specials as herself, including a role on Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse in 2012.
Brown was discovered unconscious in a bathtub in her home on January 31, 2015. Brown died on July 26, 2015, at the age of 22, after being in a coma for nearly six months.
According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office, an autopsy in March found her death was caused by drug intoxication and immersion in water, but it was not clear whether it was intentional or accidental.
Bobby Brown, Kristina’s dad blamed his daughter’s ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon for her murder, as well as his ex-wife Whitney Houston’s death three years previously.
In an interview on Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk, the Grammy-winning singer said, “[Nick] was the only one there [in] both situations; with my ex-wife and my daughter, and they both died the same way.”
Gordon was found liable for Bobbi Kristina’s death in a civil case in 2016, though he was never charged criminally. On January 1, 2020, he died of a heroin overdose.
Brown’s estate sued Gordon for wrongful death, stating that he beat her up following a “cocaine and drinking spree. They also mentioned that ” Gordon allegedly served Brown a “toxic concoction” that caused her to pass out.
