The amended lawsuit filed against Bobbi Kristina Brown’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, states that Gordon gave Brown a “toxic cocktail” before putting her face town in a tub of cold water.
Brown passed away in an Atlanta, Georgia hospice center on July 26, months after being found unresponsive in her Roswell home tub on Jan. 31. Brown never regained consciousness.
The original version of the lawsuit, accusing Gordon of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and theft of money, was filed on June 24 in Fulton County Superior Court. Brown’s court-appointed conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed the suit.
“Gordon’s torturous conduct caused substantial bodily harm, and ultimately caused the wrongful death of Bobbi Kristina Brown,” the current suit states.
Hargrove amended the suit, on Friday, stating:
“I am deeply saddened by the recent death of Bobbi Kristina Brown. I extend my sincerest condolences to all of her family. Consistent with and to the letter of the civil action I initially filed on behalf of Bobbi Kristina, we will continue to pursue justice for her. I have filed today an amended complaint against Nicholas Gordon adding a count for wrongful death and for pain and suffering. We will leave no stone unturned in seeking justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown.”
The amended complaint states that on Jan. 31, around 6 a.m., Gordon came home after “being out all-night on a cocaine and drinking binge.” The suit also claims that Gordon was watching camera footage of Brown and listening to her conversations.
The two began arguing in the kitchen, then moved to the living room, then upstairs to the master bedroom. The lawsuit alleges that Gordon accused Brown of cheating and called her several names. Their dispute lasted about 30 minutes and then “everything abruptly became quiet.” Gordon allegedly, according to the suit, “gave Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage. “
Gordon, according to the report, then came out of the bedroom dressed in different clothes than he wore during the argument, got into bed, laid his head down on a female guest’s ankle and told her, “Now I want a pretty little white girl like you.”
Fifteen minutes following this, one of the guests in the house at the time went to check on Brown and found her face down in the tub, unresponsive, unconscious, and with a swollen mouth and a tooth hanging out. The lawsuit states that a dustpan was found at the bottom of the tub.
After Brown was found, Gordon then, allegedly, came in the room, told everyone, “Clean up, Clean up,” and everyone began attempting to resuscitate Brown, while an ambulance was called. Brown was then taken to North Fulton Hospital, where she was revived and placed in a medically induced coma and diagnosed with “global and irreversible brain damage.”
The lawsuit details the specifics of an incident where Gordon knocked out Brown’s tooth, as well as a prior incident where witnesses saw Gordon punching Brown while she was sitting on a couch. The impact of the punch was so intense that the couch broke, and Brown was knocked to the floor. Gordon, according to the report, continued to attack Brown on the floor, “hitting her in the face until she was bloody.” Gordon then began kicking Brown in her side, “to the point that she was on the floor screaming and curled up in a fetal position.” A tooth was knocked out during the attack, the report says. Gordon then dragged Brown by her hair, up to the master bedroom, later telling witnesses, “I don’t do this often.”
Gordon has not been charged with and criminal charges at this time.
