Gordon has died at 30. He had been living in Florida in recent years and "worked hard to hold his head up and stay sober and that he genuinely wanted a happy healthy life with his family more than anything else," his lawyer said in a statement to the Associated Press.
Bobbi Kristina's medical emergency, lengthy hospital stay and eventual death generated a massive outpouring of sorrow, support and headlines.
Tyler Perry, an indispensable family friend to the Houston-Brown family in times of crisis, visited Bobbi Kristina in her final days.
In 2012, Perry arranged for Houston’s remains to be transported via his private plane from California to New Jersey. He then eulogized the late Houston at her funeral.
"Whitney Houston loved the Lord. I know nothing separated her from the love of God,” he said that day. “God was for her, and she is resting, singing with the angels. God bless you, Whitney. We love you so much.”
About three years later, on July 26, 2015, the family announced Bobbi Kristina’s death. She was 22.
“Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully,” a statement said. “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.’”
