Nick Gordon has reportedly been arrested for allegedly beating his girlfriend. A TMZ report says that Nick Gordon, who was unofficially adopted by Whitney Houston and later dated her daughter Bobby Houston had beaten his girlfriend so badly that she had the signs of beating all over her body including arms and face.
The man who was reportedly behind the drug addiction of Bobby Houston has been legally held responsible for the death of music legend Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Following the beating and torture charges, Nick Gordon was taken into custody and remains behind high prison walls now. He was arrested Saturday.
The news was first reported by TMZ that said that “cops cuffed Nick and took him to jail, where he was booked for domestic violence and kidnapping. According to the police report, Nick allegedly beat her so badly Friday she had to go to the hospital”.
On Sunday, when he was presented before the court, the judge asked him to wear a GPS monitor and stay away from his girlfriend. Reports suggest that Nick Gordon’s bond was set at $15k for the kidnapping charge and another $500 was tacked on for domestic violence. But he was unable to arrange the cash in time to ensure he came out of the prison on Sunday. TMZ report claims that it may take another few days before Nick Gordon is able to come out of jail.
To add to his woes, the judge has ordered him not to go to his house where the incident allegedly took place. When Nick told the judge that it was his own place, the judge said it will be decided later.
A Sanford Police report says an argument early Saturday between Gordon and girlfriend Laura Leal “became physical and lasted through the night,” with Gordon “hitting and punching her in the face and the back of the head with a closed fist.”
Gordon denied hitting her. He told police he was the one being abused. However, after officers observed Leal’s injuries they advised her to seek treatment and arrested Gordon. According to the report, the couple’s fight began after the two watched the NBA playoff game on Friday night at a sports bar. When the couple got home, Gordon got upset because he thought Leal was trying to hook up with one of his friends, the report states. “Leal stated her feelings for Gordon are real but added that the relationship was toxic,” the police report states.
