Nick Gordon’s life continues in a fiery downward spiral.
Gordon, who was recently found responsible for the death of the late Bobbi Kristina, appeared in court over the weekend after allegedly beating up his girlfriend, Laura Leal.
Leal and Gordon got into an altercation in Florida on Saturday and according to the police report, Leal claims he “unlawfully committed domestic battery by hitting and punching her in the face and the back of the head with a closed fist.”
Per the report, “Gordon stated that he never hit his girlfriend because really cares for her. Gordon also advised that he is the one that was abused and punished. Gordon stated that Laura Leal hit and punched him repeatedly. Gordon stated that Laura Leal is not telling the truth and wishes to press charges on her.”
After taking Gordon into custody, a judge set his bail for $15,500 and ordered him to wear a GPS monitor and to stay far away from Leal. Nick is due back in court in August.
According to the documents, the pair got into an argument after watching the Game 4 of the NBA finals on Friday night. “Leal advised that Gordon was upset because he thought she was trying to hook up with one of his friends,” the report stated. “Leal stated that she would never give Gordon a reason to be suspicious or jealous about being with another man. Leal stated her feelings for Gordon are real but added that the relationship was toxic. Leal says that Gordon wanted her to be honest about wanting to hook up with his friend, but Leal advised when she told Gordon she would never do that to him, he didn’t believe her.”
The report continued, “Leal says that Gordon gave her an option to leave, but advised that when she tried to exercise that option, Gordon became upset and violent punching and hitting her and refused to let her leave. Leal stated that while attempting to leave and communicate with her sister on the computer via Facebook, Gordon took the lap top computer preventing her from communicating with her sister. Leal advised that a few weeks ago Gordon smashed her phone so she had no phone, and says that Gordon then hid his personal cell phone in order to further prevent communication for help.”
That’s when Laura apparently ran to Gordon’s mother, who advised her to get out. After reaching out to her sister for assistance, police were called and Nick was arrested.
Nick, who was officially ordered to pay $36 million to the family for the death of Bobbi Kristina, could have had a much different life.
Gordon was brought in by Whitney Houston when he was just a young boy and was considered a son to the late singer. He grew close with the family and had resources right at the tip of his fingers.
So where did things go wrong? How could a man with ample opportunity become responsible for killing his sister, rather at the time, alleged wife, and now, accused of beating up his girlfriend?
Is Gordon done for good? Will the man, who has admitted to being addicted to drugs, ever live a live of love and compassion?
Nick’s case, meanwhile, comes just weeks before the anniversary of Bobbi’s death. BK died on July 26, 2015, six months after being found unconscious in a bathtub full of water inside her Georgia townhouse. The 22-year-old’s untimely death was eerily similar to her later mother’s, who died on February 11, 2012 after also being found submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism
It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.
For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.
“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.
He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”
James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”
That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”
Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
