LOS ANGELES - Nick Gordon has been ordered to pay $36 million to the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown.

Thursday's ruling came two months after Gordon was found legally responsible for the death of Brown. Gorden is now required to pay any future earnings to his girlfriend's estate, WSB reported.

Brown's estate filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Gordon last year alleging he beat her up after a "cocaine and drinking binge," according to WSB's report.  The estate also claimed Gordon gave Brown a "toxic cocktail" that caused her to pass out.

Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub on January 31, 2015.  She remained in a coma until she died six months later.

An autopsy in March revealed her cause of death was due to drug intoxication and immersion in water.

They were unable to rule whether her death was due to intentional or accidental causes.

Gordon was not present in court Thursday or for the civil hearing in September.

Brown's father took to Twitter thanking everyone who supported their family.
