The partner of Bobbi Kristina Brown has been ordered by a US judge to pay $36m (£29m) in a wrongful death case, her estate’s lawyers have said.

The daughter of pop star Whitney Houston, Brown was found unresponsive in a bath in her Atlanta home in 2015.

Her family accused her partner Nick Gordon of plying her with a “toxic mixture” before putting her face down in the water.

Mr Gordon has not been criminally charged in connection with her death.

But he was found liable in September following a default judgment in a civil case because he failed to appear in court.

He did not appear at the civil hearing, nor did he appoint a lawyer, but his legal representatives have previously described the allegations as baseless.

Brown was in a coma for six months before dying in a hospice aged 22 in July 2015 as a result of immersion in water and drug intoxication, according to medical records.

A post-mortem report was unable to determine whether death was due to intentional or accidental causes.

She died in similar circumstances to her mother – one of the world’s best-selling music artists – who also died in a bathtub in 2012 with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
