Nick Gordon Accused of Abusing Bobbi Kristina Brown Before Her Hospitalization
Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, has filed a lawsuit alleging that Gordon, 25, had dragged the 22-year-old upstairs by the hair and knocked out her tooth hours before she was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31. The complaint also claims Gordon transferred fund from Bobbi Kristina’s bank account without authorization, including a withdrawal for $11,000 after the starlet was hospitalized and had fallen into the coma.
“Today I filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. I filed this lawsuit to pursue justice on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. No human being, male or female, should endure what Bobbi Kristina endured,” Hargrove said in a statement to Us Weekly. “[Bobbi Kristina’s aunt] Pat Houston and Bobby Brown have done all they can to take care of Bobbi Kristina since this terrible tragedy occurred. I have worked closely with both of them and we all want the very best for Bobbi Kristina. This lawsuit represents our collective efforts to get justice for Bobbi Kristina. We pray that justice will be done for her and that it will be swift.”
The $10 million lawsuit alleges that Gordon also controlled Bobbi Kristina’s cell phone usage and would not allow her to see anyone without his permission. In the legal documents, Gordon is also accused of perpetuating fraud by pretending to be married to Bobbi Kristina.
The lawsuit claims Bobbi Kristina had told a confidant that Gordon was “not the man she thought he was” and that she had set up a time on Jan. 31 to meet with them. Bobbi Kristina never made it to her appointment.
On Wednesday (June 24, 2015), it was revealed that Bobbi Kristina will be moved to hospice care after being comatose for almost six months. Bobbi Kristina was reportedly diagnosed with irreversible brain damage during her hospitalization.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to deteriorate. As of today, she has been moved into hospice care,” Pat said in a statement [via People]. “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
According to TMZ, prosecutors plan on turning the case into a murder investigation in light of Bobbi Kristina’s latest health update.
