Gordon told police he did not hit the woman and claimed she attacked him and wanted to press charges against her.

11Alive has confirmed that Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, is behind bars after an incident in Florida.

Police said they responded to a domestic violence call at a home Nick Gordon shares with his new girlfriend, and she said that he hit and punched her.

"Gordon was upset because he thought she was trying to hook up with one of his friends", the report says.

As the fight escalated, she said, Gordon took her laptop and hid his phone, and had already smashed her phone, so she had no way of calling for help, according to the report.

She told cops that as the argument escalated, Gordon had given her the option to leave, only to attack her when she accepted the offer. She said they got home from the bar and argued into the early morning.

Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, died in August 2015 - several months after being found unresponsive in a tub at her Roswell townhome.

Back in November 2016, a judge ordered Gordon to pay more than $36 million to the family of Brown, two months after he was found legally responsible for her death.

Gordon is still under criminal investigation for Brown's death.
