This is really sad to hear.

Bobby Brown has dealt with a lot of tragedy over the past few years.
Just a month before the one-year anniversary of Bobbi Kristina's death, Bobby sat down with Robin Roberts to talk about the tragic loss of his daughter and the sad parallels with Whitney Houston's untimely death in 2012.
In the emotional sit down, which will air next Tuesday on ABC, the father couldn't help but break down while opening up about Kristina's drowning accident.
He cried out:
Fans are getting the chance to snag their own part of Whitney Houston's legacy.
As you surely know, the music legend passed away back in 2012 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 48.
Now, dozens of the New Jersey native's personal items (think: wedding dress, countless awards, jewelry, debit cards, a passport, etc.) are being put up for auction through Heritage Auctions on June 24 and 25.
The sale is even expected to rake in a minimum of $500,000!
Most of the personal items will begin bidding for $500-$1,000, while her gorgeous Marc Bauer wedding gown she wore to say "I do" to Bobby Brown will go for at least $3,500.
Other items from her wardrobe include various red-carpet dresses and a custom leather bomber jacket inscribed with her nickname, "Nippy." Amazing!
Some of the awards that will be up for grabs include: The 1988 American Music Award for I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the multi-platinum plaque from her 1986 debut album, several Grammy nomination certificates, and a 1993 Billboard Music Award for I Will Always Love You.
Garry Shrum, head of Heritage's Entertainment and Music Memorabilia division, dished on working with the Houston family:
"We gave them some ideas, they gave us some ideas, and we came up with this 119-piece collection that's basically a retrospective of Whitney from the beginning. From when she first started singing after she left being a background singer for Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls. We have her passport from the beginning, all these various awards and outfits, all kinds of cool and groovy things."
In case you're looking for a present for us, we wouldn't mind a few of these things… that's for sure!

This is so intense.
On Wednesday, Nick Gordon opened up about his late love Bobbi Kristina's tragic drowning which led to her eventual death months later. How sad!
As you may know, back in January 2015, the R&B scion was found face down and unresponsive in the bathtub — which is eerily similar to the same way her mother Whitney Houston died. In a sit down with DailyMail, Nick emotionally talked about what exactly went down the hours before B.K.'s passing and about their drug use as a couple.
"I blame myself for not getting to Krissy quick enough that day. I can't blame myself for another addict's addiction but I feel like I failed her. She didn't make it. I wish she got help. I wish she got my spot [in rehab]. I did not protect her the way that I was supposed to – even if it was from herself."
In case you forgot, Nick sought treatment after Dr. Phil held an intervention for him last year. The late celebutante's fiancé is slated to appear on the celebrity doctor's show again this Thursday and Friday.
In addition to his addiction problems, Nick has been under intense scrutiny for his actions surrounding Krissy's tragic accident. While the police cannot determine another person was involved in causing Bobbi's death, her father Bobby Brown is convinced that Nick is to blame for her demise. Gordon has since called this lawsuit "bullsh*t".
In regards to the hours leading up to Miz Brown's death, Nick explained:
While there is a lot of speculation around Bobbi's boyfriend Nick Gordon possibly being involved in her death in some way, an autopsy report found no evidence that he was involved.
Gordon's legal team already responded to the findings, but the 20-year old is still looking to clear his name as he's set to appear on Dr. Phil again.
Bobbie's boyfriend previously sat down with the good doctor shortly after his girlfriend was found unconscious and had an incredibly emotional interview where he threatened suicide. This time around, things are just as intense as Phil asks the young man straight up if he murdered Bobbi Kristina!
Ch-ch-check out a preview for Gordon's interview with Dr. Phil (below)!
The book titled Every Little Step will be released this June — just weeks before the one year anniversary of B.K.'s tragic death at the age of 22.
The 47-year-old told ABC News on Friday:
"Writing this book has been a therapeutic process for me. Getting it all out has allowed me to move on with my life."
In addition to sharing stories about his life and career in the memoir, Bobby will also sit down for an at-length interview with Robin Roberts for a special edition of 20/20 — also set to air in June.
While this is certainly a very touchy subject considering Bobbi's death is still under investigation, we are very curious to see what her father has to say.
Will U be picking up a copy, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Nick Gordon is feeling pretty happy, right now!
As we reported, Bobbi Kristina's released autopsy report proved the R&B scion died due to a combination of drowning and drug intoxication. It has also been concluded that it can not be determined if someone was involved in her tragic incident.
Of course, since many have speculated that Nick was somehow involved in B.K.'s untimely passing, this update comes as a huge relief to the late starlet's man.
While speaking to DailyMail, he noted:
Bobby Brown is not doing so well.
Obviously, Mr. Brown was NOT happy considering his daughter's July 26 passing is still an open investigation. It's a common practice in potential murder cases to not reveal sensitive details to the public… it's just a bad idea.
On the other hand, some media outlets felt it was their first amendment right to have access to the docs.
Voicing his opposition to the media's opinion, the singer stated:
"First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl. For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter's autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family."
The musician's lawyer echoed his client's message, adding:
