Wrongful death suit

Files Suit0 Comments

Brown’s estate files a $10 million suit against Gordon, alleging wrongful death. The lawsuit alleges Gordon, who shared a townhome with Brown in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell, beat her after an argument on the morning of January 31, then gave her a “toxic cocktail” to knock her out, and then placed her face-down in a bathtub of cold water, causing her to suffer brain damage. The suit also claims Gordon controlled Brown’s interactions, installed cameras in the home to watch her, manipulated her bank accounts, and physically abused her.

According to the suit, at about 6 a.m. on January 31, Gordon returned from an all-night “cocaine and drinking binge”. He reviewed surveillance camera footage and listened to Brown’s conversations, which led to a 30-minute argument that ended upstairs in the master bedroom.

Upon information and belief, Defendant gave Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage

The suit says Gordon then got in bed with a female guest. About 15 minutes later, someone in the townhome went to check on Brown and found her face down in the bathtub, unresponsive and unconscious, her mouth swollen and a tooth hanging loosely from her mouth.

When the Defendant came into the master bedroom, the very first thing Defendant did was let the cold water out of the bathtub and later shouted, ‘Clean up, clean up.’ Others began mouth to mouth resuscitation to no avail. Defendant then began to slap her saying, ‘wake up,’ and also started performing CPR between slaps.

Gordon’s attorneys:

Nick has been heartbroken and destroyed over the loss of his love and it’s shameful that such baseless allegations have been presented publicly. Nick has engaged civil counsel and intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously and expose it for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most.

Dr. Phil breakdown

As we sit here right now, my son’s life hangs in the balance. When Whitney was found, he administered CPR to her and called me as he was standing in front of her saying, ‘Mom, why couldn’t I do it? I couldn’t get air into her lungs. He won’t let go of the guilt.
