According to NY Daily News, Bobbi Kristina Brown's longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon is accused of having "injected" the reality TV star with a poisonous cocktail prior to her coma and eventual death, according to a report. Attorneys for Brown's estate allege that Gordon and Brown engaged in "a violent altercation," after which Gordon "injected her with a toxic mixture" and left her unconscious in a bathtub full of cold water, according to court documents obtained Thursday by WSB-TV in Atlanta.
Brown's camp had previously accused Gordon in a wrongful death lawsuit of knocking out the 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston with a "toxic cocktail" — but these recently obtained documents contain the first mention of an injection.
Her estate's attorneys further allege that Gordon changed his clothes after the altercation to cover up the incident, and that he received $40,000 to grant a magazine permission to photograph him at the young woman’s gravesite.
The documents, filed in response to Gordon's motion asking a judge to halt legal proceedings in the civil lawsuit, argue that his request should be denied. "[He] has no problem giving an interview to Dr. Phil but asks this court to relieve him of his legal responsibility," the lawyers wrote, referencing an emotional intervention staged by the talk-show host in March.
Gordon found an unresponsive Brown face down in a bathtub on Jan. 31 in her Roswell, Ga. home. She remained comatose until July 26, when she died in a hospice. Brown's family, convinced of Gordon's wrongdoing, banned him from attending her funeral and filed the wrongful death suit in August. "We believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown, and his name is Nick Gordon," Christopher Brown, the lawyer for Bobby Brown, previously told the Daily News in a statement.
Gordon's attorneys, for their part, have denounced the lawsuit as "slanderous and meritless.” Though it’s unclear whether Brown's death has been declared a homicide by the medical examiner's office, a Georgia grand jury has reportedly convened to weigh possible murder charges against Gordon, Us Weekly reported Tuesday. The results of Brown’s autopsy, which was completed last month, have not been released to the public.
