Nick Gordon has been arrested for domestic violence and kidnapping of his current girlfriend, according to documents provided to TMZ. His girlfriend reportedly filed a police report Saturday morning, claiming she'd been battered and was being forced to stay at home against her will. Cops were called at the time but Gordon fled before they arrived.

Gordon was taken into custody Saturday afternoon in Sanford, Florida. Their relationship initially made headlines since Brown's mother had helped raise Gordon and the two had grown up together. She was found face down and unconscious in a bathtub in a Georgia home she shared with Gordon, whom she'd referred to as her "husband" on several occasions.

Gordon was booked on charges of domestic battery and false imprisonment.

Brian Hale, a DNI spokesman, declined to comment on whether Trump asked Coats to intervene with Comey regarding the Flynn investigation.

"Gordon became upset and violent, punching and hitting her and refusing to let her leave", the report says.

He was ordered by the courts to pay $36 million (£27.8 million) in damages to her estate and a criminal case against him for Bobbi Kristina's death is still underway.

The daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston died in July 2015 at age 22 after being in a coma for months.

But authorities couldn't determine whether her death was the result of a suicide, homicide or accident.
