The Brown family has been plagued with sorrow and grief for years.
The late Houston who was an iconic songstress was married to the senior Brown until 2007.
She and Brown had a tempestuous 15-year marriage that was plagued by drug abuse, violence and infidelity.
She died on February 11, 2012, from accidental drowning in a bathtub after taking cocaine and Xanax. The coroner also ruled heart disease as a contributing factor.
Three years after her death, Brown and Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown also died in a tragic manner.
The 22-year-old was found unresponsive and unbreathing in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia home.
She died six months later at a hospital where she was being treated.
An autopsy showed that drug intoxication and immersion led to the pneumonia and brain damage that killed her.
Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick Gordon was found liable in a civil case for her death. He was taken in by the late Houston as a child. He developed a relationship with Bobbi when she was a teenager and he was in his 20s.
Gordon died in January this year. Toxicity report stated that he died as a result of heroin toxicity.
“He worked hard to hold his head up and stay sober and … he genuinely wanted a happy healthy life with his family more than anything else,” Gordon’s attorney, Joe Habachy, said. “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.”
