REPORT: Bobbi Kristina’s Friend Who Found Her In Bathtub Has Died Of Suspected Drug Overdose
The young man who found Bobbi Kristina unresponsive in her bathtub has reportedly died after a fatal overdose. Details inside…
This is unfortunate.
Max Lomas, the friend who found Bobbi Kristina Brown unconscious in her bathtub in 2015, has reportedly died from a drug overdose.
According to reports, Max was at a friend’s house in Mississippi and went to use the restroom. When he took too long to come back, the friend went to check on him and that’s when he found Max unresponsive on the bathroom floor. A syringe was reportedly near his body.
Max was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late. He died. Tragic.
Max made headlines when it was revealed he was the one to find Bobbi Kris unresponsive in her Georgia home. He opened up to PEOPLE magazine about the moment he found her body:
"I saw her there, and I picked her up out of the water and laid her on the ground," Max told the publication a year after Bobbi Kristina’s death. "I saw the color of her face and that she wasn’t breathing. I called for Nick and called 911."
"Nick was hysterical, on the ground outside, kicking and screaming," he added.
Bobbi Kris died in hospice care in July 2015, six months after she was found in the bathtub. Max was adamant he was not the "drug dealer" who provided BK and her former boyfriend Nick Gordon drugs, despite rumors that were going around saying he was.
Just weeks before BK was found unconscious, Max was repotedly arrested on suspicion of illegal possession of alprazolam (Xanax), possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm. He pleaded not guilty.
BK’s friend dodged the charges filed in connection to her death. Nick on the other hand DID suffer a consequence following her death. Bobbi Kristina’s estate won a civil suit against him for $ 36 million.
Speaking of Nick, he paid tribute to his friend on social media:
Recently, Bobbi Kristina’s dad Bobby Brown announced he is developing a non-profit domestic violence shelter in memory of his late daughter called "The Bobbi Kristina Serenity House." The center will lead the way in empowering all communities about the perils of Domestic Violence, according to the website. The shelter will also offer a 24-hour crisis intervention line, an emergency transitional shelter access to resources/referral services, and advocacy for social change with expert support services for victims and survivors.
