Nick Gordon, the ex-boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown (daugther of Whitney Houston), has passed due to a drug overdose at the age of 30.

“We are devastated by the loss of my beautiful brother,”, “He leaves a void in the hearts of my family and his friends. Nick’s battle in life was not an easy one. I will be forever grateful that my God afforded a small moment at the very end of Nick’s life, and I was able to hold his hand as he journeyed on.”

“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,” Nick Gordon's attorney Habachy stated.

“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,” Habachy continues. “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.”

Sources told The Daily Mail that Gordon had suffered a number of heart attacks on New Year’s Day and was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit at Altamonte Springs Hospital, where he eventually died.

Walker Jr. expressed his heartbreak on Facebook shortly after the devastating news, first writing “GOD WHY I DID I HAVE TO LOSE MY BROTHER ON NEW YEARS” and “All I can do is cry.”

This morning TMZ has obtained the audio from the night that Nick Gordon passed away and the audio does reveal some very disturbing details about his death. 

Apparently a man who identified himself to be Gordons bilogical brother said that he died of an overdose and head "black stuff" foaming out his mouth. According to TMZ "Black discharge is sometimes related to a "foam cone" that comes out of the mouth and nostrils after an opioid OD."

A toxicology report is expected to be released within the next couple of weeks.
