Nick Gordon was banned from Bobbi Kristina Brown’s burial service on August 3, but he took it upon himself to visit her gravesite on August 17, which according to an insider, has upset Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family so greatly that her maternal grandmother, Cissy Houston, broke down in grief.
International Business Times reported that an undisclosed sources indicated that after family members caught wind of Gordon’s visit to the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, Cissy Houston, 81, had an emotional breakdown.
“Only 14 days before Cissy was there to bury her beloved grandchild next to the grave of her tragic daughter, Whitney Houston. Cissy still can’t come to grips with Krissi being dead — and when she heard Nick went there, she collapsed in grief.”
Cissy isn’t the only one affected by the news of Gordon visiting the grave. Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, along with her aunt, Pat Houston, are furious that Gordon gained entry to see Bobbi Kristina’s gravesite, especially since he still remains the primary suspect in the criminal investigation into her death.
“Both sides of the family, including Bobbi Kristina’s dad Bobby Brown and her aunt Pat Houston, are furious that Nick dared to go to the grave after he was barred from her funeral, and before then, from the hospital and the hospice facility where she eventually died.”
To make matters worse, other sources indicate that Gordon accepted more than $40,000 to allow himself to be recorded and photographed while visiting Bobbi Kristina’s grave. Although these rumors haven’t been confirmed, an insider stated that Gordon needed the money to help pay his legal bills. He hired high-profile attorney Jose Baez to represent him in the wrongful death civil lawsuit in which he is accused of stealing more than $11,000 from Bobbi Kristina’s bank account, as well as emotional and physical abuse against her.
Gordon reportedly pleaded with Bobbi Kristina’s family to allow him to attend the funeral services, but after he was denied, an insider indicated that he needed closure for himself, despite the possibility of upsetting her family, who he hasn’t had a good relationship with for many years.
“He needed closure. He knew he had to make the journey to the grave to say goodbye — particularly after he was banned for six months from visiting her in the hospital or paying his final respects to her in the hospice. He said he begged her family to attend her funeral in Atlanta, but was banned from there too.”
There is still no indication as to when Gordon’s civil court date will take place. In the meantime, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family remains mum about it, but “hopes for justice.”
