Nick Gordon and the Inheritance of Whitney Houston’s Estate: A Growing Controversy
The death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of late pop icon Whitney Houston, remains shrouded in controversy. As the only person present in the house at the time of Brown’s death, her former boyfriend, Nick Gordon, has been under investigation for any possible involvement in it. However, more recently, attention has shifted to a potential motive for Gordon’s involvement – the inheritance of Whitney Houston’s fortune. This article explores the controversy surrounding Gordon and his potential inheritance of Houston’s estate.
Gordon and Brown’s Relationship
Gordon and Brown were engaged and had a tumultuous relationship. While Houston raised Gordon as an adopted son, Gordon’s close relationship with the singer’s only child raised some eyebrows. In the days following Brown’s death, Gordon made several public appearances, including on Dr. Phil, in which he appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Gordon’s Monthly Allowance
Amid the ongoing investigations into Brown’s death, it has been discovered that Gordon has been receiving a monthly allowance from Houston’s estate for some years. According to reports, in the will Houston left behind, Gordon was not named as a beneficiary nor did she leave him any money. Yet, Gordon allegedly received a monthly allowance of $5,000 from Houston’s estate until it was terminated in March 2020.
Gordon’s Legal Team’s Claims
Gordon’s legal team maintains that the money was gifted to him by Houston before her death, and it was merely a continuation of that arrangement. However, Brown’s conservator has countered this claim, stating that Gordon was never legally married to Brown, nor was he legally the executor of Houston’s estate, and hence, had no claim to the money. Furthermore, according to reports, Gordon made attempts to access Brown’s bank accounts after her tragic death.
Gordon’s Arrest and Violation of Restraining Order
Adding to the suspicious circumstances surrounding Gordon, he was arrested in 2020 for domestic violence against his girlfriend. This arrest led to an automatic violation of the restraining order that had been put in place by Brown’s conservator, preventing Gordon from ever coming near Brown’s estate.
Bank Account Withdrawals
As the investigations continued, it was discovered that while the couple was together, Gordon used Brown’s credit card without her knowledge and consent. According to the conservator’s lawsuit, Gordon withdrew approximately $11,000 from Bobbi Kristina Brown’s bank account, which Gordon tried to justify by claiming that it was a loan.
These allegations and suspicions raised by this case go a long way in painting Gordon in a negative light. The fact that he was receiving a monthly allowance from Houston’s estate, allegedly without any legal basis, raises serious concerns about the estate’s management. The rest of Houston’s family have vehemently denied any claims that Gordon was due to inherit any part of the estate, and investigations continue into whether or not Gordon was involved in Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death.
The result of these investigations could have far-reaching implications for the future handling of the estate and the Houston family’s legacy if there is any truth in allegations that Gordon sought to access Whitney Houston’s fortune through underhanded means.
In conclusion, the investigations into Nick Gordon’s potential inheritance of Whitney Houston’s estate have raised more questions than answers. The circumstances surrounding his relationship with Brown and his access to Houston’s estate raise serious concerns. The investigations into Gordon’s involvement in Brown’s death are ongoing, and it remains to be seen if there is any truth to allegations that he tried to access Houston’s fortune through underhanded means. Ultimately, the outcome of these investigations could have far-reaching implications for the Houston family’s legacy and the future management of the estate.
