Bobby Brown is making some bold claims about the death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina. In a statement made via his lawyer, Christopher Brown, the mourning father is pinning all of the blame on Nick Gordon.
“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon,” Christopher Brown said via the statement published in Us Weekly today, Monday, September 28.
According to the rest of the statement, Nick Gordon filed a motion to have Bobby Brown’s lawsuit against him dismissed but then withdrew it before it was heard by the court. This means that Gordon will now have to give a deposition in the case.
Bobbi Kristina was the only child of Bobbi Brown and legendary singer, Whitney Houston. She died at the age of 22 under very mysterious circumstances. Nick Gordon, her then boyfriend and a close childhood friend was in the house when her unresponsive body was found face down in a bath tub, eerily similar to how her mother was found. Bobbi Kristina Brown died six months later.
Nick Gordon did not attend the funeral, but visited the gravesite on a later date.
Us Weekly reports that Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, Bedelia Harsgrove, filed a lawsuit against Gordon claiming that he gave Bobbi a toxic combination of drugs which caused her death.
As a previous Inquisitr article reported, the findings in Bobbi Kristina’s autopsy report have not been disclosed to the public because of a court order.
“The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death based on information available as of September 25, 2015,” the statement from the medical examiner read. “However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has received a Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public.
According to the preliminary autopsy report, which was released soon after Bobbi’s Kristina’s death, her body did not show any signs of “significant injuries,” or “underlying cause of death.” The initial report also indicated that she had no chronic medical conditions that would have caused her death.
“I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon,” Bobby Brown said in his recent statement in the press.
Only time will tell whether that will happen.
As for Nick Gordon, he has steadfastly denied having any role in Bobbi Kristina’s death. His attorneys, according to People Magazine, have called the claims
“slanderous and meritless.”
Bobby Brown’s lawsuit also claims that Nick Gordon also committed battery, caused emotional distress, and stole Bobby Kristina’s money. Bedelia Harsgrove, Bobbi Kristina’s conservator says that Nicked kicked her in her side and knocked one of her teeth out.
Gordon also denies that he used their relationship to commit fraud against her or to restrict he spending time with other people.
Nick Gordon and Bobby Kristina had known each other since they were children. As an article in The Wrap states, Whitney Houston raised Nick Gordon as her son when his biological mother was rendered unable to take care of him. So Nick and Bobbi Kristina basically grew up as brother and sister although there is no blood relation between them.
Soon after Whitney Houston died in 2012, rumors began swirling that the relationship between them was not entirely platonic. Nick and Bobbi went public with their “love” soon after. When Bobbi Kristina was alive, the two would constant send messages of love to each other via social media.
In January 2014, Bobbi Kristin announced that she and Nick had gotten married, but there is no legal documentation that supports that statement.
