VIDEO shows Nick Gordon crying as he accuses girlfriend of attacking him on night of his arrest
A visibly distraught Nick Gordon choked back tears on the night he was arrested for domestic violence last month, police video shows.
Gordon — the former fiancé of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown — sobbed as he told police Laura Leal “scratched” and “beat” him during an incident at their Florida home, the footage published by TMZ shows.
The 29-year-old Gordon, whose T-shirt was ripped as he spoke to authorities, denied becoming violent toward Leal.
“She accused me of this before,” he told an officer. “I called you guys. Everything’s on recording. I don’t go to jail over something like this. Like, I’m tired of it.”
Gordon was arrested on a battery charge in Seminole County on March 10, but prosecutors have since announced he won’t be criminally charged because Leal retracted her original allegations that he struck her face multiple times and said in a sworn oath that Gordon never turned physically violent toward her. She also sent a letter to the judge overseeing the case to send a similar message.
Leal was interviewed by police on the night of Gordon’s arrest. The video published Wednesday shows her telling authorities Gordon said he “wants to be with his angels.”
Gordon denied saying that when asked by police, throwing his arms out and responding, “What? What? C’mon man.”
Audio from Gordon’s 911 call was previously obtained by the Daily News. In the call, Gordon says he was “getting beat up by a girl.”
He was arrested again in March after he violated a court order to stay away from Leal following the initial arrest. That case is still being reviewed.
Gordon’s former fiancé, Brown, was found face-down and unconscious in a bathtub at an Atlanta home in 2015 and died at 22 six months later. Her estate has accused Gordon of giving Brown — the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown — a “toxic cocktail” that contributed to her death.
Gordon was ordered to pay $36 million to Brown’s estate in a civil wrongful death lawsuit last year. He has never been criminally charged in connection to Brown’s death, and he has maintained his innocence.
