Bobbi Kristina Brown's drug dealer dies of suspected overdose
Steven Stepho confessed to RadarOnline in March that he'd helped Bobbi Kristina and partner, Nick Gordon 'get drugs sometimes, but not regularly.''
The 22-year-old was found dead in his apartment on Monday, June 29 and sources close to Stepho said that his ''family and friends suspect it was a drug overdose,'' and that he had a fatal relapse after trying to turn his life around.
''He’s been on the path to sobriety for a while — attending AA meetings — but they believe that he fell back into using heroin or with mixing it,'' sources told Radar exclusively.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office is yet to determine the exact cause of death pending results of a toxicology test, expected in about two weeks, as it’s being conducted in a private lab.
On a page of Georgia’s Roswell Funeral Home , Stepho’s family said they ''would appreciate [if mourners would not] wear black to the Celebration of Life Service, [as] his favorite colors were Blue and White.''
Stepho reportedly confessed to RadarOnline in March that he'd helped Bobbi Kristina and partner, Nick Gordon 'get drugs sometimes, but not regularly.''
Stepho has been arrested twice in the last two years in connection with possession of and intent to sell heroin. After pleading guilty, Stepho was sentenced to up to a year behind bars and placed on probation for 11 years in October 2013.
