In a sit-down interview with Atlanta’s Fox 5 TV station, Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt, stated that she believes Nick Gordon will “110 per cent” be charged with a crime related to her niece’s injuries.
Leolah, Bobby Brown’s sister, said she thinks Gordon had a part in the incident on January 31, when Bobbi Kristina was found face-down in a bathtub at the couple’s Roswell, Georgia, townhouse.
No one has been charged in the incident or named as a suspect, and Gordon has not responded to the family’s accusations.
Bobbi Kristina, the 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston, has been on a ventilator in hospital since she was found, but Leolah Brown insisted she is “doing good” and has even opened her eyes.
” ‘I saw this coming,’ she told Fox 5 Atlanta. ‘I told her not to trust anyone.”
Gordon was taken in by Houston as a child and brought up as Bobbi Kristina’s brother — but after Houston’s death, they started a romantic relationship and last year, they claimed they had married.
In the Fox interview, Leolah said she does not think Gordon has been a good influence on Bobbi Kristina.
“I have my reasons,” she said, without going into further detail. “There are a lot of family reasons that have that same reason.”
“I believe Nick Gordon will be charged with this… I hope that he will be charged with this as well. Soon. I really do.”
She added that she had lived with Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, and had helped them look after Bobbi Kristina, but never saw Gordon around the house.
She also reiterated Bobby Brown’s statement that the young couple are not married, despite their claims on social media last year.
“This is the man Krissi loved, but she was a young girl,” she said. “We stay.”
Leolah also dismissed the idea that Bobbi Kristina would have hurt herself.
“Krissi would never do anything to herself… She loved life too much. She had too much going on. She had too much ahead of her.”
As for her niece’s current condition, she stated that reports of Bobbi Kristina being brain dead were false.
“It’s been very, very painful for everybody. Mainly Bobby, because that’s his baby,” she said of her brother, Bobby Brown.
But she added that they remain hopeful, especially because she has given them “signs” that she’ll recover, such as opening her eyes.
There is also no truth to the idea that Bobbi Kristina would be removed from life support today — the same day her mother died three years ago — she said.
“No,” she stated, adding — “Bobby’s calling the shots.”
The family has been at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside in Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, where she remains in a medically-induced coma after being found submerged in bath water.
Police are currently investigating the possibility of foul play in the case of Bobbi Kristina, with Georgia investigators reportedly opening a criminal investigation.
