Bobbi Kristina Brown may have been murdered. The speculative phrase has been tossed around quite a bit over the past couple months and her family seemingly won’t rest until they uncover the truth. By now, everyone knows there’s only one thing the Houston and Brown families agree on — their disapproval of Nick Gordon.
It’s no secret Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon allegedly lived a life filled with romance, alcohol, drugs and rumored domestic violence, which is why the family suspects foul play contributed to her untimely death. Her father, Bobby Brown, has made it clear that he will seek justice for her daughter, whom many believe was murdered, reports Billboard.
Although her highly-publicized autopsy report has been sealed, her father’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, has released a statement about the report and the person they believe should be held accountable for her death. As expected, all fingers are still pointing at Nick Gordon, but now there’s another reason why they’re targeting him.
As previously reported by Inquisitr, a court-appointed conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed a $40 million lawsuit against Nick Gordon on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The lawsuit accused Gordon of abusing Bobbi Kristina and extorting thousands of dollars from her personal bank accounts. However, that’s not all. The lawsuit also includes a wrongful death accusation detailing a timeline of events that may have contributed to Bobbi Kristina’s death.
It was reported that the lawsuit alleged Nick gave her a “toxic cocktail” after a “cocaine and drinking binge” night that ended with a final argument before Bobbi Kristina was later found in the bathtub inside her Roswell, GA townhome.
Of course, Gordon’s defense team is working diligently to have the lawsuit dismissed. While most fans are well aware of Nick Gordon’s financial state and his inability to pay such a hefty sum for alleged damages, Brown’s lawyer insists the motion to dismiss has nothing to do money.
According to Yahoo! News, Brown’s attorney argues that Gordon is fighting to have the lawsuit dismissed in order to avoid giving a deposition under oath, which would force him to discuss his relationship with Bobbi Kristina Brown and the series of events that led to the bathtub incident on the morning of Jan. 31.
“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon,” Christopher Brown’s statement continues. “Mr. Gordon made headlines when he filed his Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit pending in Superior Court that seeks to hold him responsible for 40 Million Dollars in damages. However, the Motion was frivolous and instead of having it heard by the Court, he has chosen to withdraw the Motion, ending that matter so that he could avoid having to give his deposition which was scheduled for the day he withdrew the Motion. Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath.
Brown’s attorney also insists that he isn’t shocked by the defense tactic Gordon’s legal team used. “I am not shocked at the withdrawal, as we must keep in mind that Gordon filed a lawsuit to remove Bobby Brown as Bobbi Kristina’s guardian, only to withdraw that lawsuit in DeKalb County Probate Court once he was served with a deposition notice,” Christopher Brown adds. “He could have pressed forward with that lawsuit and told us under oath what he believed happened to Bobbi Kristina, but he chose to go in another direction.”
The latest statement comes just days after the Fulton County Medical Examiner released a statement about the sealed autopsy report. The criminal investigation will reportedly be ongoing. No criminal charges have been filed against Nick Gordon as of yet.
