Bobbi Kristina Brown was given a “toxic cocktail” that rendered her unconscious and then deliberately placed face-down in a tub of cold water by her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, alleges a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against Gordon, Rolling Stone is reporting.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was found unresponsive in the bathtub in her Atlanta home on January 31. She would spend the next six months in a coma before dying on July 26.
The Brown family has continuously maintained that Nick Gordon had something to do with his death, although no criminal charges have been filed against him as of this post. The lawsuit against him specifically alleges that Gordon was illegally transferring money from Bobbi Kristina’s bank account into his own, as well as assaulting her physically and emotionally.
“This was all part of a scheme to control Bobbi Kristina and benefit from her wealth.”
A detailed series of allegations, leading up to the moment Bobbi Kristina died, is put forth in the lawsuit filed by Brown’s court-appointed conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, according to MSN.
- Early in the morning on the day that Bobbi Kristina was discovered in the bathtub, Nick returned from an “all-night drinking and cocaine binge.”
- The two argued for a time, then everything “abruptly became quiet.”
- Shortly thereafter, Gordon called Bobbi into the master bedroom. There, he gave her a “toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage.”
- Gordon changed clothes, went back out into the living room, laid his head on the ankle of a female guest, and said “Now I want a pretty little white girl like you.”
- About 15 minutes later, another guest found Bobbi Kristina face-down in the bathtub. Nick panicked and yelled “Clean up! Clean up!”
None of these allegations have been proven, and as was mentioned earlier, no criminal charges have been filed against Gordon as of this post. However, legal analyst Philip Holloway, discussing the lawsuit with an Atlanta TV station, suggested that the lawsuit may be a legal maneuver to force the legal case against Nick Gordon to move forward.
“It very well could be. Lawyers are ethically prohibited from alleging things in a lawsuit unless they have support. This lawsuit accuses him of murder.”
Nick Gordon, meanwhile, has hired a defense attorney: Jose Baez, the same attorney who represented Casey Anthony. Baez has not returned calls for comment.
Do you think Nick Gordon had anything to do with Bobbi Kristina’s death?
