“This was no accident,” Leolah, the sister of Bobbi Kristina’s father said. “I believe that somebody killed my niece, just like they killed her mother.”
She pointed out that Nick Gordon was behind her niece’s death. Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unconscious in a bathtub in the home she shared with her boyfriend, Gordon.
A lawsuit was filed by Bobbi Kristina’s court-appointed conservator against Gordon earlier this year but it allegedly included unjust accusations.
The lawsuit stated that Gordon gave his girlfriend “a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage.” It also claimed that they used cocaine that night.
Gordon denied all the allegations. He was never arrested nor charged despite the accusations against him.
Lawyers of the accused filed a motion to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit filed against their client by Bobbi Kristina’s camp. Gordon’s lawyers told ET that the lawsuit is “slanderous and meritless.”
The statement Gordon’s lawyer’s released said their client has been suffering after he lost Bobbi Kristina. It also stated that Gordon “intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously and expose it for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most.”
Leolah says that it was not only Gordon who wanted her niece dead. She believes there were several people who wanted to get rid of Bobbi Kristina to gain full access to Houston’s estate.
She found a suspicious similarity in the deaths of her niece and Houston. The 48-year-old singer was found dead in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel room in February 2012. She died of drowning.
According to Leolah, there is something wrong about the way they died, saying “we have to wake up and realize this is too close, too similar — mother, daughter, both in bathtubs.”
In her interview with Inside Edition, Leolah explained the reason for her outburst during her niece’s funeral. She said Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by people who do not really care about her.
Bobbi Kristina died on July 26, after six months in coma.
