Nick Gordon is accused of injecting Bobbi Kristina Brown with a fatal “toxic mixture,” new court documents reveal.
According to Radar Online, who obtained the documents on Friday, Gordon allegedly injected the the toxic mixture into the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown after a violent argument, which “fatally injured” the young woman.
The lawsuit, claims that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death was a direct result of the lethal injection, was filed by Brown’s conservator, Bedelian Hargrove.
“Ms. Brown died due to a violent altercation with Defendant (Gordon) after which he placed her in a bathtub, unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture.”

According to Us Weekly, the lawsuit was amended after Brown’s death and seeks $10 million in damages. The original lawsuit still accused Gordon of giving Bobbi Kristina a “toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious.” However, there was no mention of an injection.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Bobbi Kristina died on July 26 at the age of 22 after efforts to save her through a medically induced coma were unsuccessful. She was found facedown in the bathtub of her home near Atlanta on January 31.
Nick Gordon is also accused of verbally and physically abusing Bobbi Kristina, and withdrawing funds from her accounts after she was hospitalized, according to Hargrove’s case.
“Bobbi Kristina Brown was physically abused by the Defendant on numerous occasions and later died following a particularly violent altercation with the Defendant which left her battered and bruised, with a tooth knocked out.”

The documents further allege that after placing Bobbi Kristina underwater, Gordon then changed his clothes and “afterward he got in bed, and laid his head on a female guest’s ankle and stated, ‘Now I want a pretty little white girl like you.’ ”
Fifteen minutes later, claims the lawsuit, an unidentified person reportedly found Bobbi Kristina in the bathtub with “a dust pan … in the bottom of the bathtub.”
Gordon’s lawyers have denied allegations that he injected his girlfriend with a toxic cocktail and that he abused and stole from her. Attorney Jose Baez told USA Today at the time of the original lawsuit that the claims are ludicrous.
“The recent lawsuit against Nick is slanderous and meritless.”
In the meantime, Gordon’s team has filed a stay of motion with a goal of ending of the civil case. This comes on the heels of news that the district attorney in Georgia is reportedly convening a secret grand jury to charge Nick Gordon with murder.
Gordon’s attorneys argue that with possible criminal charges, any statements made by Gordon in civil proceedings could be used against him in a criminal investigation.

Attorneys for Gordon also argue that the judge’s decision to seal the cause of Bobbi Kristina’s death precludes and denies “the use of exculpatory evidence that will come forward as a result of the criminal investigation.”
Gordon’s team also argues that because of Bobbi Kristina’s parents’ fame, their client would be unfairly treated in both criminal and civil proceedings.
“Mr. Gordon will be unfairly, legally, and financially prejudiced should he be subject to parallel criminal and civil proceedings.”
Gordon maintains his innocence in Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization. After appearing on Dr. Phil prior to Bobbi Kristina’s death, Nick Gordon checked himself into rehab.
