This is so disturbing. A new $40 million lawsuit filed on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown claims that her boyfriend Nick Gordon was stealing money from her inheritance and brutally beating her.
Nick Gordon, 24, might not have had Bobbi Kristina Brown’s best interest at heart. Bobbi Kristina’s estate filed a $40 million lawsuit against Nick on June 24, accusing him of stealing money from her Whitney Houston inheritance, as well as physically abusing the daughter of the late singer. In a chilling turn of events, Bobbi was allegedly meeting a friend on Jan. 31 to reveal Nick’s abuse — the same day she was found unconscious in her bathtub.
How awful. Nick was accused of regularly transferring funds from her account to his account, which also included $11,000 after she was put in a coma, according to TMZ. This is beyond disturbing. In addition to stealing her money, he was also allegedly physically abusing poor Bobbi Kristina. In one instance, he was said to have dragged “her upstairs by her hair,” and also allegedly knocked out her front tooth by punching her in the face. The scariest part? When she was found in the bathtub she had a swollen mouth and a tooth knocked out. Bobbi was reportedly going to confide in her friend about her abuse, but never made it. Instead, she was discovered 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.”
Bobbi Kristina Moved To Hospice Care — Family Says She Is ‘In God’s Hands Now’
While Bobbi’s whole family was praying for a miracle sadly, Bobbi’s condition continued to show no signs of improvement. Bobbi’s aunt, Pat Houston, gave an update about her niece’s condition in a statement, saying “despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate.” As of June 24, Bobbi Kristina “has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
Our thoughts remain with Bobbi Kristina and her loved ones during this difficult time.
