Nick Gordon Posed For Tearful Photos At Bobbi Kristina’s Grave For $40,000 National Enquirer Payout
This guy TRULY ain’t isht!!! Nick Gordon earned a $40K check for letting The National Enquirer snap photos of him crying at Bobbi Kristina’s graveside.
According to Page Six reports:
“Grieving” Nick Gordon — who was banned from girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral by her dad, Bobby Brown, and is facing a wrongful-death suit in her catastrophic passing — was paid $40,000 for photos and video of his so-called “secret pilgrimage” to her grave, sources exclusively tell Page Six.
But the money, we hear, is going to his “legal defense fund” because Nick is “broke” and needs the funds to pay his top legal team, which includes Casey Anthony’s lawyer Jose Baez.
Teary images of Gordon visiting the grave of Whitney Houston and Brown’s daughter, who tragically died at 22, were splashed in a National Enquirer cover story Wednesday, including pics of Gordon at New Jersey’s Fairview Cemetery clutching two bouquets of roses, kissing Bobbi Kristina’s tombstone, taking cellphone photos of it and having a tearful breakdown.
But “it was not by accident that Nick was photographed at the site,” scoffed an insider. Another source said the Enquirer paid Gordon a cool $40,000 for the shots.
“Nick is broke,” our source said. “He can’t afford to defend himself. There was a deal for that money to go to his defense fund.” “Entertainment Tonight” licensed the video, which aired Wednesday.
Sources said Gordon, 25, visited the grave on Aug. 17 with members of his team, but tipped photographers had staked out the cemetery for two days to capture the dramatic scene.
Gordon’s facing a $10 million civil suit brought by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, which his reps blasted as “slanderous.” It claims Gordon plied Bobbi Kristina with a “toxic cocktail” and “put her face down in a tub of cold water, causing her to suffer brain damage.”
Yikes… If the lawsuit is correct then it’s even more disgusting he would visit the grave and take these photos. What do you think? Is he to blame?
A rep for Gordon sniffed of his payday: “This is completely fabricated. I would also like to add, Page 6 [sic] isn’t a trusted source in news.” An Enquirer rep said, “The National Enquirer, more than any other publication, has been unflinching in our reporting of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.”
LOL @ Nick Gordon’s rep throwing shade. We’re gonna stay out of that battle over which tabloid is more reputable because people in glass houses wellll ya know the rest.
R.I.P. Bobbi Kris.
