In 2015, Bobbi was discovered facedown unconscious in her bathtub and slipped into coma for six months before her death in July 2015. The incident occurred in the couple's Georgia townhouse. Even though, Gordon did not face any criminal charges, he was legally asked to pay a fine of $36 million to her estate. For Gordon, legal drama did not end there. He had to deal with his girlfriend Laura Leal's accusations of physical violence against her.
