Conniving Nick Gordon shamefully hoped to cash in on a secret trove of videos and photos exposing the late Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina's drug-fueled misery, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
Family members' fears over what he might reveal were part of the reason why they slapped the hothead with a $50 million wrongful death suit, sources said. But now that Bobbi Kristina's estate has won the suit, Gordon's sleazy get-rich-scheme is out the window.
"Nick lived with Whitney and Bobbi Kristina for 10 years. Can you imagine how many photos he's taken and the video footage he has of them passed out
on drugs?" an insider told Radar.
"Whitney would sometimes have a crack overdose, fall down, pass out and vomit on herself. Then Nick would have to clean her up."
"Everybody wants to know what he knows. If Nick did a book or movie deal about 'My Life With Whitney,' it could probably bring in $20 to $30 million!"
To prevent that from happening, Bobbi Kristina's estate filed the civil suit against him, the source said.
The suit accused Gordon of giving Bobbi Kristina — who died at age 22 in July 2015 after being found facedown in a bathtub at the home they shared — a "toxic cocktail," and of beating her and stealing from her while she was in a coma.
Gordon was deemed "legally responsible" for her death in September, and on Nov. 17, a judge in Georgia's Fulton County awarded Bobbi Kristina's estate a whopping $36 million in a default judgment.
The ruling means Gordon is "unable to…obtain any benefits from the use of Bobbi Kristina's name," according to a statement from her father, Bobby Brown, who also called for the district attorney's office to "begin the criminal prosecution" of Gordon in her death.
And the attorney who represents her estate, David Ware, said, "We intend to pursue, with all vigor, the full collection of the judgment. The defendant will not escape justice nor ever profit from his misdeeds."
But without his explosive videos and photographs, Gordon — who now lives with his mother in Florida — will be hard-pressed to pay off the judgment.
Working full time at the Florida minimum wage of $8.05, it will take the talentless girlfriend-beater a mind-blowing 2150 years to earn $36 million!
That's if Gordon — who some suspect of being involved in the deaths of both Whitney and Bobbi Kristina — could even find someone willing to hire him!
Said a source, "There's no way Nick could pay off that debt."
