As police continue to investigate Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death, shocking new revelations about her past may be shedding new light on the case. Bobbi reportedly partied hard and passed out in a bathtub the night before Whitney Houston died — just like she did in Jan. 2015, seven months before her death.
Bobbi Kristina Brown was placed in a medically-induced coma after she was found unconscious in her bathtub on Jan .31, but that wasn’t the first time she fell asleep in a tub. Just one day before her mom, Whitney Houston, passed away, Bobbi allegedly had a similar experience after a wild night of partying, according to a new report.
Bobbi reportedly got drunk with her mom at the Beverly Hilton bar in Feb. 2012, then fell asleep in her hotel room’s bathtub with the water running, according to TMZ. One day later, Whitney was discovered dead in her room’s bathtub, and Bobbi was rushed to the hospital. At the time, the iconic singer’s rep claimed Bobbi’s hospitalization was for exhaustion, but now, TMZ reports it was actually for alcohol poisoning.
This information has become relevant now that Bobbi has sadly passed. Police are reportedly investigating her case as a homicide, with her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, 19, as a person of interest — but his lawyers may be able to use this previous incident to help Nick’s case.
The site’s sources says that Nick’s attorney is aware of Bobbi’s terrifying past, and will try and use it to convince the court that, once again, Bobbi let her partying get out of control, causing her to pass out in the tub. And considering the initial autopsy report did not show an “underlying cause of death” and “no significant injuries were noted,” things are looking pretty good for Nick.
Nick Gordon Served With Lawsuit For Allegedly Beating Bobbi Kristina
Still, Bobbi’s family is looking for justice, and seem to believe Nick had something to do with what happened. On July 12, he was served a $10 million lawsuit for allegedly “beating” Bobbi throughout their relationship, as well as controlling her finances while she was in a medically-induced coma. One of Bobbi’s friends, Alex Reid, even detailed Nick’s alleged abuse during an interview on July 1.
“I don’t know when he started hitting her. But I know of at least four occasions when he struck her,” Alex told E! News. “She also told me about how he tried to choke her once. She was definitely scared. She had some friends, not many. One time I remember she called me and we talked for three hours. She was hyperventilating. I could barely understand what she was saying because she was so distraught. When she could finally get the words out, she told me he had been physically abusive. He had hit her in the face and thrown her against a wall.”
Our thoughts remain with Bobbi’s friends and family during this difficult time.
