Various American media report this based on the results of the autopsy. The 30-year-old ex-son-in-law of singer Whitney Houston died on New Year’s Day. Three years ago, Nick was found responsible in a civil case for Bobbi Christina’s death. She too died of an overdose and would have received the drugs from her boyfriend. She was the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, who also died in 2012 from the effects of drug use. That was exactly eight years ago on Tuesday.
