More people are coming forward to share thoughts and memories after the tragic loss of Bobbi Kristina Brown, including friend Sammy Tawil, who recently revealed one of Bobbi Kristina’s final phone calls.
Tawil, a longtime family friend, stated that Bobbi Kristina didn’t seem depressed nor suicidal in the last phone call he had with her, just one day before she was found comatose in her bathtub.
“I spoke with her the day before she was found. She wanted to go in the studio. I didn’t sense anything bad. She wasn’t depressed. I haven’t personally seen any flare-ups, fighting or physical contact with her or Nick.”
In fact, Tawil indicates that since 2014, Bobbi Kristina was improving after battling depression over the loss of her mother, Whitney Houston, in 2012.
Yet, a recent amended civil lawsuit against Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina’s live-in boyfriend, paints a horrific picture of the relationship. If Bobbi Kristina was happy and making plans for her future, she may not have even known what hit her on the night of January 31.
Gordon is now accused of giving Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail and placing her in a bath full of cold water, leaving her there while he flirted with a female guest. The first lawsuit, filed June 24, accused Gordon of theft and physical abuse.
The amended lawsuit, filed on Friday at the Fulton County Superior Court, adds more details to what reportedly happened on January 31, including Gordon flying into a jealous rage after seeing Bobbi Kristina on security surveillance talking to another man.
Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, released a statement shortly after amending the lawsuit against Gordon. She stated that wrongful death, as well as pain and suffering, were added to the civil charges against Gordon.
“I have filed today an amended complaint against Nicholas Gordon adding a count for wrongful death and for pain and suffering. We will leave no stone unturned in seeking justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown.”
Earlier this year, Tawil said that he saw Bobbi Kristina on the 4th of July in 2014, and he had never seen her as happy as she was that day. Gordon was in attendance as well, and the couple smiled playfully while they posed for pictures at the Asbury Park boardwalk in New Jersey. Tawil defended their relationship, saying that Bobbi Kristina loved and trusted Gordon.
“She really loves him, he’s one of the few people in her life that she has. There’s very few people in her circle that she really trusts.”
Tawil’s opinion, however, is a stark contrast from what other friends have said about the couple’s relationship, including Bobbi Kristina’s close friend Alex Reid, who indicated earlier this year that Gordon’s physical and emotional abuse scared Bobbi Kristina.
“She was sobbing. Nick had hit her and she was scared. She was very upset. She didn’t know what to do. It was as if, she didn’t have anyone else to turn to. It was heartbreaking.”
One thing her friends do agree on, however, is that Bobbi Kristina Brown was a loving, generous person who will be greatly missed.
