Nick Gordon Sued by Bobbi Kristina’s Estate
A lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina Brown’s estate accuses her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, of abuse. The suit, filed in Fulton County Superior Court on Wednesday, also alleges that Gordon took money from her without her consent.
Brown’s court-appointed conservator Bedelia Hargrove filed the lawsuit. In it, she alleges that Gordon assaulted, battered, intentionally inflicted emotional distress and transferred funds from Brown’s account into his without authorization.
Bobbi Kristina, 22, has been unconscious since Jan. 31 when she was found in a bathtub in her Roswell home. On Wednesday, her aunt said that her condition has deteriorated and she’s been moved to hospice care.
As of Thursday, police in Roswell turned over their investigative file of the case to Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard to determine whether any charges will be filed. In a statement sent out on Thursday, Howard said that his office will be “reviewing the case with greater interest” in light of new circumstances regarding her health.
The lawsuit claims that Gordon presented himself as Brown’s surrogate brother prior to 2012. After he inherited a substantial amount of money, presumably from her mother, Whitney Houston’s estate, Gordon “assumed the position of Brown’s boyfriend.”
According to the lawsuit, Gordon used the “misrepresentation” of being Brown’s husband to “control Brown and limit with whom she could interact.”
Allegedly, Gordon answered Brown’s cell phone, wouldn’t allow her to make appointments without the permission and “manipulated her bank relationship so that she could access her money.”
