Nick Gordon has some nerve!
What makes the public appearance so outrageous is that the perp failed to appear in court on Friday to hear the verdict. We guess Mr. Gordon has no f*cks to give despite the serious nature of this case!
Despite the heap of trouble he's in, N.G. appeared nonchalant as he picked up drinks from a local gas station. The 26-year-old donned a casual white t-shirt and sneakers for the occasion.
As for the legal sides of things, a lawyer who is NOT representing Nick explained to ET Online:
"As I understand it — and I am not representing Gordon — he did not have a lawyer for this civil case and because he failed to respond or to appear, the court simply granted Plaintiff's requests to assess liability. To me, that does not establish that he did anything wrong. It is not a decision on the merits."
… well, why didn't Gordon show up to court given the circumstances, then? If the controversial guy believes himself to be innocent, then why didn't he dispute the suit?
Ugh, our heads are spinning!
So, do YOU think Nick is responsible for Bobbi's passing?

Bobby Brown believes justice has been served.
The judge explained that, because of Nick's absence, anything Bobbi's estate said was automatically admitted by omission.
After the decision was revealed, the late singer's famous father told People he was incredibly satisfied with the outcome, saying in a statement:
"I am pleased with the outcome of today's court proceedings. All I ever wanted was answers relating to who and what caused my daughter's death. Today's judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon. Now I need to process all the emotions I have and lean on God to get me and my family through this."
A source close to the family told the outlet that, while it's nice knowing justice was served, they will never stop grieving Bobbi's untimely death, saying:
Nick Gordon has been found "legally responsible" for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown after not showing up in court on Friday.
As you know, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home in January 2015, and remained in a coma for six months. Toxicology reports showed that drugs were in her system, and she was taken off life support in July 2015.
According to local news reports, Gordon's absence from the court's hearing regarding the $50 million wrongful death civil suit has rendered him responsible — and now a jury will decide the damages against him later today.
Reporter Jennifer Leslie has been providing updates from the scene:
After so much heartache, the Brown family finally has some happy news!
Along with a pic of himself grinning from ear to ear, the Every Little Step singer shared:
What horrific and haunting details.
Per Lomas' shocking account, Nick and Bobbi had been fighting all night long over allegations of cheating. The pal also alleged that the trio had taken drugs prior to the tragic drowning.
While we've heard allegations of discord between the couple before, this recent retelling of that fateful night paints a more detailed picture of what really went down.
Bobby Brown isn't holding anything back!
Since there's SO many bombshells in his memoir Every Little Step, here are what we found to be the most shocking excerpts about his life with the music icon — from drug use in front of their daughter Bobbi Kristina to slapping Whitney after a fight with their drug dealer:
As you may know, there's A LOT of controversy surrounding the death of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and on Tuesday night her dad opened up a bit more about his thoughts on the matter during an interview with 20/20!
However, during the FULL interview, the 47-year-old ended up opening up about his abusive relationship with his ex-wife as he talked to Robin Roberts, saying that he did indeed hit Houston once while he was "trying to maintain sobriety." Woof.
Of course the songwriter says that any reports that claim he is a "woman beater" or "violent toward" Whitney are "just lies" as he dished:
