Bobby Brown has spoken out in regards to the civil lawsuit against Nick Gordon and his alleged involvement in Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death. The 46-year-old believes that Nick was the person who harmed his daughter.
Bobby Brown, 46, is ready to seek justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown. The singer released a statement on Sept. 28 and publicly blamed Nick Gordon, 24, as the reason for his daughter’s death. That wasn’t all Bobby had to say about the pending lawsuit. Read on to see Bobby’s entire statement against Nick.
“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon,” Bobby’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, told UsWeekly. The 24-year-old was originally hit with a lawsuit filed by the Brown family on June 24. The lawsuit claimed that Nick “assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and transferring money from her account into his own without authorization,” according to NBC News. The same lawsuit was later amended by Bobbi Kristina’s legal conservator claiming that Nick gave Bobbi Kristina a “toxic cocktail.”
Bobby’s attorney continued to say,
“Mr. Gordon made headlines when he filed his Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit pending in Superior Court that seeks to hold him responsible for 40 Million Dollars in damages. However, the Motion was frivolous and instead of having it heard by the Court, he has chosen to withdraw the Motion, ending that matter so that he could avoid having to give his deposition which was scheduled for the day he withdrew the Motion. Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath.
I am not shocked at the withdrawal, as we must keep in mind that Gordon filed a lawsuit to remove Bobby Brown as Bobbi Kristina’s guardian, only to withdraw that lawsuit in DeKalb County Probate Court once he was served with a deposition notice. He could have pressed forward with that lawsuit and told us under oath what he believed happened to Bobbi Kristina, but he chose to go in another direction.”
The 46-year-old singer didn’t stay silent on the matter. Following his attorney’s statement, Bobby said, “I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon.”
Nick Gordon Hires Legal Team In Midst Of $40 Million Lawsuit
After Bobbi Kristina’s family filed the $40 million lawsuit against Nick, he decided it would be best to hire a legal team to defend him. The 24-year-old reportedly asked Jose Baez, the same attorney who defended Casey Anthony, to defend him. Along with Jose, Entertainment Tonight reported that private investigator, TJ Ward, who worked on the infamous disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005, will be brought on board as a part of Nick’s legal team.
