Bobbi Kristina’s best friend claims Nick Gordon regularly beat her

With Bobbi Kristina’s fate tragically sealed after being moved to a hospice to pass away in peace, her longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon, has been facing some steep accusations from her family and her estate, which has sued him for $10 million for allegedly stealing money from Bobbi and abusing her. Now, Gordon is facing strong accusations from Bobbi Kristina’s best friend, who claims Gordon used to beat Bobbi regularly.

In a new interview with E! Online, Bobbi’s best friend, Alex Reid, claims that just three weeks before Bobbi was found face down and unresponsive in her bathtub, she called Reid in a panic because she was hiding from Gordon in her late mother, Whitney Houston’s, closet.

“She was sobbing. Nick had hit her and she was scared,” Reid shared. “She was very upset. She didn’t know what to do. It was as if, she didn’t have anyone else to turn to. It was heartbreaking.”

According to Reid, this wasn’t just an isolated incident. She claims Bobbi regularly told her about the frightening attacks she endured from Gordon.

Reid, who met Bobbi two years ago during Grammy weekend, explains that she’s just now speaking out about the abuse Bobbi allegedly endured because she feels Bobbi needs someone to defend her during this critical time.

“I love her. I would never have betrayed her and spoken out before now,” Reid said. “But as she lies there, I feel there is no one else to speak on her behalf. I feel like I have to be a voice for her now.”

She added, “There are things that I know that no one else does. And I hope that by speaking out I can help the investigation in some way.”
