This whole situation is just a tragedy.
Aside from his legal troubles, we hear Nick Gordon is very much affected and saddened by the death of his girlfriend Bobbi Kristina.
A source revealed about Gordon:
"You can say what you want about him and Bobbi Kristina, but he really did love her very much, and is devastated that she is gone."
Gordon was like a son to and raised by Whitney Houston, and he began a romantic relationship with Bobbi Kristina in 2012, though there were a lot of ups and downs.
They appeared to be happy, even referring to each other as husband and wife on social media, but in 2014, Bobbi Kristina's aunt, Pat Houston, took out a restraining order on Gordon.
After Gordon was the one who found his 22-year-old girlfriend unresponsive and face down in a bathtub at their Georgia townhouse, the Houston family members banned Gordon from seeing Bobbi Kristina. This may have actually made things worse as another source reveals that:
An insider shared:
"He is holding it together more than you'd expect. He knew it was coming. Of course he's very emotional, but at the same time, he knows that Krissy is in a better place now."
How sad. We can't imagine the pain he must be going through right now.
The insider continued:
She was just 22 years old.
Bobbi Kristina had been unresponsive since January, when she was found face down in a bathtub. Her family moved her to hospice care as her condition deteriorated. She was preceded in death by her mother, who died in February 2012.
A message on the Official Whitney Houston Facebook page read:
"It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers.
As Bobbi Kristina would say: 'The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.'"
Our hearts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time. Below are more stars who share our sentiments:
Such tragic news.
We report with heavy hearts that Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away at the young age of 22.

In March, a still-unresponsive Bobbi Kristina was transferred to a rehab facility. On June 23, her family made the decision to move her into hospice care, issuing a statement, saying:
The Australian actress took to Twitter to express her frustration with gun control in the United States, saying that in light of the shooting, American lawmakers really need to take notes from her native country, writing:
So, so sad.
Trainwreck director Judd Apatow has just weighed in with a statement released Friday afternoon on the Louisiana theater shooting that has claimed two lives in addition the shooter's, and injured nine others.
Speaking to reporters, Apatow said:
"One of the reasons we make these movies is because the world can be so horrifying and we all need to laugh just to deal with it. So to have this happen in a room where people were smiling and laughing devastates me. My thoughts and love go out to the victims and anyone touched by this madness or any madness. We, as a country, need to find a way to do better."
Our thoughts continue to be with those families, friends, and loved ones in Lafayette, Louisiana.
