Nick Gordon: SO Upset Over Bobbi Kristina Brown Passing

by at .

Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is "devastated" over the news that she passed away over the weekend, sources claim.

After nearly drowning in her bathtub and spending the next six months in a coma, Bobbi Kristina Brown died at the young age of 22.

"Nick is very upset," an insider says of Gordon, who may be investigated for murder following the now-infamous events of January 31.

"You can say what you want about him and Bobbi Kristina, but he really did love her very much, and is devastated that she is gone."

"He is heartbroken, grieving," a relative added. "Nick was holding out hope that he would see her one final time. He is very emotional."

Gordon was raised like a son by the late Whitney Houston, and began a romantic relationship with "Krissie" after Houston's death.

That was 2012. Over the next two years, the pair referred to each other as husband and wife on social media ... but never married.

Gordon, 25, had a strained relationship with Brown's family; Bobbi's aunt, Pat Houston, took out a restraining order against him in 2014.

In 2013, her grandmother, Cissy Houston, wrote to Bobbi Kristina, urging her to wait to get married because "I think you're too young."

This was before anything had even happened to her, too. The heat has been turned up on Nick ever since, with no signs of abating.

Gordon was one of the first people to discover Brown's unconscious body in the bathtub of their Roswell, Ga., home on January 31.

Her family has been questioning the circumstances, with some believing that Gordon may have had something to do with the incident.

Some have even gone so far as to speculate what Nick Gordon's motive to kill her was, but he has always maintained his innocence.

In fact, he reportedly told a relative of Bobby Brown (Bobbi's dad) that drinking and drugs led to the tragedy - nothing nefarious.

Regardless, Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr. said his office will be reviewing Brown's case "with greater interest."

Gordon is also facing a $10 million lawsuit filed by Brown's estate, which accuses him of abusing and stealing from the late celebrity.

He did not see Bobbi Kristina after the incident. Bobby Brown barred him from visiting her at the hospital; Gordon later went to rehab.
