Bobby Brown Posts Tribute to Bobbi Kristina After Nick Gordon Verdict: ‘Daddy’s Got Your Back’

Her guardian angel. Bobby Brown posted a touching tribute to Bobbi Kristina via Instagram on Friday, September 16, just hours after Nick Gordon was found “legally responsible” for his daughter’s death.

“#IGOTEM #Babygirl #daddyalwaysgotyourback💪🏾 #justiceforbobbikristina,” the 47-year-old singer captioned a collage artwork of the father-daughter pair. In it, the proud father can be seen toting his daughter as a toddler and smiling with her as a teen.

On Friday, Bobbi Kristina's former boyfriend Gordon was found legally responsible in her death after he failed to appear in court for a hearing in the wrongful death lawsuit brought against him, Atlanta’s Fulton County Court confirmed to Us Weekly.

“A jury will determine the amount of damages to be awarded to Brown’s conservator,” the statement reads.

Bobby, who has spoken out before about wanting to uncover the truth about Bobbi Kristina’s 2015 death, told Us Weekly in a statement on Friday that he is “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,” he said in the statement. “Today’s judgment tell 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.”

As previously reported, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home in January 2015 in circumstances eerily reminiscent of her mother Whitney Houston’s 2012 death. Bobbi Kristina died on July 26, 2015, after being taken off life support following a medically induced coma. She was 22.

Bobbi Kristina's estate filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against Gordon one month later.
