In June, Laura Leal, 26, pressed charges against Gordon, 28, after he allegedly accused her of infidelity and physically attacked her in their Sanford, Florida apartment on June 10, the outlet writes. The original police report stated that Gordon “became upset and violent, punching and hitting her and refusing to let her leave.” Police say that Leal had multiple visible injuries on her face and arms.
After the incident Leal claimed that she feared that she could have potentially been put in the same situation as Bobbi Kristina, the source writes.
Following the incident, Gordon was ordered to take anger management classes which he has since completed.
The New York Daily News reports that Leal recently penned a letter to the judge asking that the misdemeanor assault and battery charges against Gordon be dropped because she was displeased with the criminal justice process. The document also featured statements made by Leal that conflicted with the original account of the incident which led prosecutors to dismiss the case.
The dispute between Leal and Gordon occurred less than a year after he was found guilty in the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown and was ordered to pay the Brown family $36 million, reports the source. Brown died in an Atlanta hospice in July 2015, seven months after being found unconscious in her house in Georgia.
