The criminal investigation over Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition after being discovered unconscious, face-down in a bathtub on Jan. 31 has been turned over to the District Attorney.
This is getting serious. Fulton County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to HollywoodLife.com on June 25 that they will be taking over the Bobbi Kristina Brown case from Roswell Police. The DA has revealed that they are looking into the 22-year-old’s brush with death with “greater interest” after she’s been moved to hospice care and a civil placed against her ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, 24, for allegedly stealing her money and beating her. Read on for the full statement!
“The Roswell Police Department has forwarded its investigative file to our Office,” Fulton County DA Paul L. Howard, Jr. told HollywoodLife.com. “In view of the new circumstances regarding the health status of Bobbi Kristina Brown, we will be reviewing the case with greater interest. An announcement regarding a charging decision, if any, will be made at the appropriate time.” We sure hope they’re able to get to the bottom of this!
Bobbi’s aunt and co-guardian Pat Houston gave an update about her harrowed state of health on June 24, revealing that Whitney Houston‘s daughter had been transferred from the hospital to more intensive hospice care. “Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat said on behalf of the family. “She is in God’s hands now.” So heartbreaking.
Back in February, the Roswell Police Department shared that Bobbi being found comatose in her Roswell, Georgia home would be treated as a criminal investigation. “The Roswell Police Criminal Investigation Division, who is investigating the incident, conducts criminal investigations,” they told Us Weekly on Feb. 12.
“The incident has always been under criminal investigation and has not been reclassified as a criminal investigation,” they added. Now that the DA has taken over, we hope the truth comes about what caused Bobbi to live on life-support for nearly five months.
While it’s still uncertain exactly how Bobbi Kristina ended up in such bad shape, all signs are pointing to the involvement of her bad boy ex. Nick was accused of routinely transferring funds from her bank account to his, which also included $11,000 after she was put in a coma, according to TMZ. So shady.
In addition to taking from her fortune, he also allegedly physically abused Bobbi Kristina. Poor girl! One example from the lawsuit filed on behalf of BK’s estate? Nick was said to have dragged “her upstairs by her hair,” and also allegedly punched out her front tooth after hitting her in the face. The most chilling part? When she was found in the bathtub she had a swollen mouth and a tooth knocked out. Bobbi was reportedly going to tell her friend about the attacks, but never got to it. Rather, she was found unconscious in a bathtub by Nick.
Bobbi’s lawyer, Bedelia C. Hargrove said of filing the lawsuit to People, “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.”
