WATCH: 'Whitney & Bobbi Kristina' Biographer Claims 'Nick Gordon Is Shaking In His Boots'

Gordon, 25, is currently facing a civil lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina's conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, alleging that he physically abused the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, and stole thousands of dollars from her. The lawsuit also claims that Bobbi Kristina set up a meeting with an unnamed person on Jan. 31 to discuss that Gordon was "not the man she thought he was," and was later found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31, "face down, with her mouth swollen and another tooth knocked out."

While no criminal charges have been filed, ET recently talked to former LA prosecutor Michael Kraut, who weighed in on possible charges Gordon could face, given the serious claims against him in the lawsuit.

"[The District's Attorney] will have to make a decision whether this was a homicide, a domestic violence or non-criminal," Kraut explained. "Nick clearly doesn't have $10 million. The lawsuit was filed to get information in order to provide the police and district attorney about what happened on that day."
