The Daily Mail, who broke the story, shared that 30-year-old Gordon “had a series of heart attacks after he was rushed into intensive care in Florida amid New Year’s celebrations.”
However, doctors at Altamonte Springs Hospital were unable to revive him.
An insider told the publication:
“It’s early days but the suggestion is he was taking drugs with friends and he passed out. They drove him to the hospital, took him inside and then left him there.”
Gordon rose to notoriety during his time as Whitney Houston‘s “adopted son” and subsequently the fiancée of her daughter Bobbi Kristina.
The latter union was fraught with reports of abuse and, when Bobbi died aged 22 in 2015 (after being found unconscious in a bathtub with drugs in her system), a civil court found him legally responsible for her death. Although criminal proceedings were never brought.
More recent times saw Gordon make headlines for allegedly abusing his then-girlfriend.
