Bobbi Kristina Brown’s ex-fiancé Nick Gordon ‘had black fluid coming from his mouth’, according to a released 911 dispatch audio.
TMZ has reported that before paramedics arrived, a dispatcher is heard saying in the 911 call: “Black stuff is coming out of his mouth and he is not breathing.”
The 30-year-old reportedly died of a suspected overdose on Christmas Day.
The black fluid coming from his mouth and nostrils is reportedly consistent with an opioid overdose, which is more commonly known as heroin.
Gordon reportedly suffered a series of heart attacks after the overdose and later died at Altamonte Springs Hospital.
Gordon’s lawyer, Joe Habachy, told Fox News that he was ‘working hard’ to clean up his act, though he didn’t go into specifics surrounding Gordon’s death.
Habachy said: “My heart is heavy today after learning that my long time client Nick Gordon died at the young age of thirty.
“While I cannot speak to the specific circumstances of his death, I can say that it’s been truly heartbreaking to have witnessed first hand the total devastation that drug addiction has wreaked upon a group of young friends, all of whom were loved and had immense potential.”
The lawyer continued: “Despite all of the incredible challenges Nick faced over the last few years I can honestly say that he 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.
“My heart goes out to the family and friends Nick leaves behind and to any other families dealing with the losses and heartache caused by drugs.”
His brother Junior Walker wrote on Facebook : “God why did I have to lose my brother on New Year’s. All I can do is cry.”
Bobbi Kristina died in 2015 aged 22 after being found unresponsive in a bathtub – three years after her music icon mum Whitney’s death.
Mr Gordon was found legally responsible for her death in a civil case, but never faced any criminal charges.
