Playing Nick Gordon Wishes Bobbi Kristina Brown a Happy Birthday, Responds to Release of Her Autopsy

Nick Gordon is speaking out about Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy.

The autopsy report for his late girlfriend -- who died last July at the age of 22 after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub seven months earlier -- was released to the public on Friday, the same day as what would have been Brown's 23rd birthday.

According to a statement from the Fulton County, Georgia, medical examiner, the daughter of late music legend Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown died from complications caused by her face being immersed in water, along with drug intoxication.

Randy Kessler, an attorney for Gordon, says that he hopes the new details regarding the cause of Brown's death -- officially listed as lobar pneumonia -- will put to rest "all the negativity" towards Gordon, who has "always maintained his innocence," according to CBS New York.

Gordon echoed this sentiment, reportedly telling the Daily Mail, "I'm glad this s*** is all over. I just want to wish my girl a Happy Birthday. I can't say any more but it's good." The 20-year-old also took to his social media accounts to wish her a happy birthday, accompanied by a picture of her.

On June 24, 2015, Bobbi Kristina's court-appointed conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed a $10 million wrongful death civil lawsuit against Gordon -- who was at the scene and had performed CPR on her before paramedics arrived -- accusing him of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and transferring money from Brown's account into his own without authorization. He was also accused of injecting her "with a toxic mixture."

Gordon's lawyers slammed the lawsuit, claiming it was both "slanderous and meritless." No criminal charges have been filed against Nick in connection with Bobbi Kristina's death.

As ET previously reported, the toxicology report found marijuana, alcohol, "a cocaine-related substance," anti-anxiety medication and morphine in her system. The autopsy could not determine if her death was intentional or accidental, however.

Following the release of the autopsy results, Brown's father gave a statement to ET.

"First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul," Bobby said. "I love my baby girl. For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter's autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family."
