Nick Gordon Hires Casey Anthony's Lawyer, Is 'Excited' for Civil Trial

Bobbi Kristina's ex reportedly going through "intense mood swings."

Nick Gordon is looking forward to having his day in court. New sources reveal that Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend is "excited" to share his side of the story following months of accusations that he somehow caused Brown's condition. Gordon is being sued by Bedelia Hargrove, on behalf of the late Whitney Houston's estate, for $10 million over his connection to what landed the music scion on her death bed in hospice care.
Gordon has hired his own attorney to defend him, none other than Casey Anthony's lawyer Jose Baez. The defense attorney became infamous after he managed to get Anthony acquitted for her daughter's murder despite a mountain of evidence supporting her guilt. 


“Nick is excited for the trial in the civil case to start because he can finally tell his side of the story,” an insider tells Us Weekly. Last week, TMZ reported on a taped phone call between Gordon and a member of the Brown family in which he said her hospitalization was a result of excessive drug use, and not abuse, as some have claimed. "She did too much, man," he said on the secret recording.
“Nick is very concerned with how he is being portrayed in the media and reads everything about himself on every website and magazine,” the insider adds. “He’s been going through intense mood swings, going from being on top of the world to crying hysterically for long periods.”
As his attorneys prepare his case, Gordon himself is focused on trying to return to his girlfriend's bedside after months of being banished. “Nick’s main concern seems to be seeing Bobbi before she dies,” the source says. “He’s constantly trying to find a way to make that happen.” 
We can't help but wonder what Whitney would have made of this spectacle. Watch Clive Davis reflect on the music icon in our exclusive interview below:
