Nick Gordon was paid $40,000 for photos and videos of him crying at Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral and gravesite, a new report claims.

The pictures appeared in Wednesday’s issue of the National Enquirer. They include shots of Gordon at Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey kissing Brown’s tombstone, crying and holding several bouquets of flowers. (RELATED: Nick Gordon Begs Bobby Brown: ‘Please Let Me Come To Your Daughter’s Funeral’)

Gordon, who is accused of playing a part in his girlfriend’s death, is being represented by the same lawyer who defended Casey Anthony.

He reportedly needs money for his legal defense fund because he is “broke.”

“He can’t afford to defend himself,” the source who revealed that he staged the photos told Page Six. “There was a deal for that money to go to his defense fund.”

After Whitney Houston’s daughter died in July, authorities said “cops are treating the mystery as foul play” and that Gordon continues to be a “person of interest.” (RELATED: Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Death Becomes Murder Investigation)
