Nick Gordon, the former partner and fiancé of Whitney Houston's late daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, has died at the age of 30.

It comes after Brown died aged 22 in 2015, while her mother passed away three years prior in 2012 aged 48.

His lawyer, Joe Habachy, confirmed the news in a statement on New Year's Day on Wednesday.

"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 added.

Gordon's brother Jack Walker Jr. told People in a statement: "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.”

A cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

The news comes three years after Gordon was found liable in the wrongful death case of his ex-girlfriend with a judge ordering him to pay $36 million, around £27 million, to her estate.

Brown was found unconscious and unresponsive in the bath of her home she shared with Gordon in January 2015. She never regained consciousness and later died on 26 July of the same year whilst in hospice care.

Houston died in 2012 after drowning in a bathtub, with coroner's official later ruling that the death was accidental.
