The way the 22-year-old was found is eerily similar to the fate that took the life of Bobbi Kristina’s mother, singer Whitney Houston. Although Brown wasn’t killed, the incident forced doctors to induce coma.
In a time where Bobbi Kristina needs unanimous support, it seems far too many relatives have made their way to gossip sites and news sources to spread ugly rumors about who is responsible for her fate. Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, drew the most suspicion as he was the one who claimed to have found her in the tub.
This led to speculation that this may have been a cover-story for attempted murder. Although for many Gordon would be at the top of the suspect list, others are being called out. Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt Leolah Brown told TMZ that she believed another aunt, Pat Houston, was involved in her severe medical state.
A cousin has stepped in to defend the troubled Nick Gordon. Jerod Brown said in a statement on Facebook that Gordon is innocent of harming Bobbi Kristina. At the same time, he hit out at the media and other family members for “exploiting” him.
“[H]e has given Kristina CPR which is one of the reasons why she is not dead till this day, he has been ridiculed and accused without any concrete evidence yet he still hasn’t gotten the chance to visit his girl. If everyone truly believes that Nick is the blame for this situation wouldn’t you think he would already be locked up by now.”
With fingers pointing in every direction and a family torn apart by scandal, the question inevitably emerges: Who has the most to gain from seeing Bobbi Kristina Brown dead?
Following the death of her mother Whitney, Brown inherited $20 million and her mother’s entire estate. The first $2.5 million was released to her when she turned 21; the next amount, $2.7 million would be released to her when she turned 25. The remaining amount would be hers at the age of 30.

As she is an only child with no children of her own, it’s likely her next of kin would receive the remainder of her trust fund in the event of her death. According to Celebrity Networth, that would be Whitney Houston’s mother Cissy and two uncles. However, Nick Gordon claimed that the two were married. That’s what the two told TMZ last year.
But following the drowning incident, Bobby Brown’s attorney immediately claimed that the two were never legally married. Such a declaration would clear the way for Bobby to fight for a share of Bobbi Kristina’s wealth in the event of her death.
Who do you think has the most to gain if Bobbi Kristina Brown were to die? Do you think that anyone had a hand in her accident or do you think the situation is simply being exploited for personal gain?
