"I've been reading the reports about Bobbi Kristina and I'm physically shaking. I read about her being isolated, her family not knowing where she was, the manipulation, the bullying — it's the exact same thing," the Florida restaurant worker told The Daily Mail.
As readers know, Gordon was found legally responsible for the death of his former fiancée after he refused to show up to two hearings in a wrongful death civil suit filed by Brown's estate.
Leal, 26, told the U.K. news site that Gordon pinned her to the bed during the hours-long attack and punched her head so hard, she wondered if she were dead.
"It started with a push and a slap, it would happen at least once a week. I would have to put makeup on my bruises to cover them up, especially on my face," said Leal. "But I blamed myself. I thought it was my problem and that I had to work harder at the relationship to make it work.
Leal confessed to have known about Gordon's former drug problems, but when the pair initially met three months ago, he claimed to have kicked his addiction after a stint in rehab.
"I didn't ever see him take heroin or crack but now I'm wondering if he was doing that behind my back," said Leal.
As the relationship progressed, Gordon slowly seized control of Leal's life, exploding into frequent jealous outbursts, forcing her to shut out her family and destroying her phone in a burst of anger.
Leal claimed that just two weeks ago she locked herself in a bathroom so she could call for help when Gordon pried the lock open with a knife.
"I thought he loved me but how can you love someone when you put them through this hell?" She said. " It's like a double personality in one person. He's psychotic."
Nick Gordon remains in jail after failing to post $15,500 bail.
