Lomas told PEOPLE, “We were all pretty bad into drugs.” The 27-year-old lived on and off with Brown and Gordon at their townhouse in Roswell, Georgia following the death of Whitney Houston. He was the one who found Brown unconscious in a bathtub in January 2015.
“Like Gordon, Lomas says he was taken in by Houston as a troubled teen. At the time, he and Brown were romantically involved, but that ended when he went to jail in 2011 on a probation violation. ‘[Whitney] loved that we were dating and always wanted me to protect Krissy,’ says Lomas, who was still incarcerated at the time of Houston’s death.
After his release, he says Gordon, 26, and Brown, 22, began dating. ‘Their relationship was bipolar,’ says Lomas. ‘[They had] extreme highs and lows and would fight, mostly about jealousy.’ Two weeks before Brown’s incident, ‘we all decided that we were going to get off drugs, live healthier lifestyles. We all went to the gym together,’ he says. ‘But it didn’t work out. We started using again.’”
Lomas also revealed that Gordon became abusive toward Brown, though those claims were denied by Gordon’s lawyers. Nick told Dr. Phil during an interview in April, “[Bobby] hurt his own daughter, not me. I was the one there for her while she was dealing with him not being there.”
As for what Bobbi would be doing if she were still alive, Lomas says, “I know she would be living in LA and pursuing her music career and doing all the things she wanted to do. She had such a beautiful heart.”
