As you know, Nick Gordon was found civilly liable in September for the untimely death of his girlfriend Bobbi Kristina after being found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta home in January 2015.
On Thursday, a judge ruled Gordon must pay $36,250,000 in civil damages in the wrongful death case, just four million short of what Bobbi’s estate originally asked for — according to AP.
TMZ reports Nick was once again a no-show for court and breaks down the judges ruling as follows:
— $1.5 million for conversion (stealing funds/assets) with punitive damages of $250K
— $1.3 million for assault, battery, and medical damages
— $4.2 million because Gordon was under the influence of drugs and alcohol during the incident
— $13 million for pain and suffering
— $15 million for loss of life, including B.K.’s net worth and future potential income
Now, the matter is whether or not the money will be paid at all…
A criminal investigation remains ongoing, and we will keep you updated as we learn more.
