The sad and ongoing tale of Bobbi Kristina Brown added a new chapter this week after a lawsuit was launched against her boyfriend slash brother, Nick Gordon. The civil lawsuit alleges that Gordon physically assaulted Brown and stole cash from her as well.
Georgia news outlet WXIA released a report regarding the lawsuit, which comes on the heels after it was announced Brown would be entering hospice care. Ever since Brown’s health ordeal became public, speculation over Gordon’s role in the matter has been robust. In this latest instance, the court-appointed conservator looking over Brown’s funds and affairs drew up the lawsuit which alleges some shocking actions by way of Gordon.
The lawsuit alleges that Gordon presented himself to be Brown’s surrogate brother prior to 2012. After Brown inherited a substantial sum of money (presumably from her mother, Whitney Houston’s estate), Gordon “assumed the position of Brown’s boyfriend.” Around Jan. 9, 2014, Gordon “perpetuated the fraud that he had married Brown, though in fact he never did so,” according to the lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit, Gordon used that “misrepresentation” as Brown’s husband to “control Brown and limit with whom she could interact.” The suit alleges that Gordon answered Brown’s cell phone, wouldn’t allow her to make appointments without his permission and “manipulated her bank relationship so that she could access her money.”
Conservator Bedelia Hargrove also alleges that Gordon assaulted Brown one night so badly that he knocked out a tooth. While Brown was recovering in a coma after she was discovered unconscious in a bathtub, Gordon allegedly took $11,000 in cash from her.
Hargrove said in a statement that Brown’s father, Bobby Brown and aunt Pat Houston are seeking “justice” in the 22-year-old’s name.
