On Wednesday, images of a teary Gordon visiting the grave of Brown were splashed in a National Enquirer cover story, including snaps of Gordon at New Jersey’s Fairview Cemetery clutching two bouquets of roses, kissing the 22-year-old’s tombstone, taking cellphone photos of it and having what appears to be a breakdown.
Gordon, 25, visited Bobbi Kristina’s grave on Aug. 17 with members of his team, but tipped off paparazzi that had staked out the cemetery for two days to capture the dramatic scene, the source continued.
Now, a source tells Page Six, that a “grieving” Gordon was compensated in the amount of $40,000 for photos and video of his so-called “secret pilgrimage” to her final resting place.
Rumors however, claim that the funds are going to his “legal defense fund” because Godon is flat broke and needs the money to pay his top legal team, which includes Casey Anthony’s lawyer, Jose Baez.
As previously reported, Gordon was slapped with a $10 million civil lawsuit by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, which his reps blasted as “slanderous.” The lawsuit claims that Gordon plied Brown with a “toxic cocktail” and “put her face down in a tub of cold water, causing her to suffer brain damage.”
