A judge in Atlanta has ordered Nick Gordon, former partner of Bobbi Kristina Brown, to pay $36 million in a wrongful-death case against him, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Brown was found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her home in January 2015, and was in a coma for six months before her death. Witnesses in the case claim that Gordon gave Brown a "toxic cocktail" that rendered her unconscious. The medical examiner's office was unable to determine how exactly Brown had died. Gordon has not been charged with a crime, though he was found legally responsible for Brown's death in September after he repeatedly failed to meet court deadlines in the civil suit.
