Nick Gordon was finally able to pay his last respects to girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown, recently flying to New Jersey to visit her grave. The once aspiring actress died July 26 after having been unresponsive for nearly six months. Her death has been linked to a Jan. 31 incident in which she was found face down in a bathtub full of water. Gordon, 25, who the Brown and Houston families reportedly blame for Bobbi Kristina's death, was barred from seeing the 22-year-old following the incident.
People magazine reported Gordon's trip was paid for "by some generous friends," but did not provide names. He is said to have gone last Monday to Fairview Cemetery, where both Bobbi Kristina and her mother Whitney Houston are buried side-by-side.
As we previously reported, Gordon was barred from visiting Bobbi Kristina in each of the facilities at which she was held in the nearly six months leading to her death. He pleaded with the family, specifically her father, Bobby Brown, on several occasions, asking to be allowed to see her one last time to no avail. Bobby Brown, 46, eventually released a statement regarding Gordon's pleas, claiming he had been granted the opportunity to visit if he agreed to certain stipulations. The statement claimed he refused to comply and suggested Gordon did not want to see her as badly as he claimed. Following Bobbi Kristina's death July 26, the family reportedly barred Gordon from attending both the Alpharetta, Georgia, service and her final burial in New Jersey. He instead said his goodbyes with his mother, Michelle Gordon, at a beach.
Gordon's cemetery visit comes 10 days after he was accused of having contributed to her death. According to reports, Bobbi Kristina's conservator filed an amendment to a lawsuit originally filed in July against Gordon that claims he provided Bobbi Kristina with a "toxic cocktail" before putting her in the bathtub. The amendment also details physical abuse Bobbi Kristina allegedly suffered during her relationship with Gordon.
Gordon's lawyers have since addressed the claims, dismissing them as false. His lawyers, Joe Habachy and Jose Baez, released a statement in which they called all claims made in the lawsuit "baseless" and slanderous. The statement went on to say Gordon was left "heartbroken" after losing his longtime girlfriend.
